I love the current weather! If it was 5-10 degrees warmer, I'd still be in shorts ...
Skirts and dresses all year round too. And some woolly tights.

I saw them for men, too!

That photo contains many very tasty calories!

I better go and finish my Swedish pickled herring for breakfast.

Tights mess up my leg hairs, make them all tangled. I don't like wearing them at all - which is why I'm glad that I've never been cold enough to even think about wearing thermal undergarments, as the pants are basically tights.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Yeah, I can imagine. Growing up in a place where winters get really cold, tights were a survival. One gets immune to the slight awkwardness. Jeans in -10 with no tights are a nightmare. Even for those with hairy legs. It is probably not a FWP. Frozen pants are.

Was it some kind of pasteurization experiment? Caramel making?

Sorry about the mishap..I grew up on condensed milk in a tube (like a toothpaste), we lived on it. I saw it here too.
Ahhh, yeah. Addictive. Migros was kind enough to shift it out of my regular path, my teeth are grateful.

No weather is keeping me indoors. Yesterday I put on a compression shirt and a T-shirt over it, tights with shorts over them, a little beanie and off I went on a quick 10K with 5° and wind. I don't care if it's cold or not. I'd rather run in -5° (as long as there's no ice on the road) outdoors than on the treadmill. The rain though...

I miss Shenandoah. Lovely in the fall. Blue Ridge Mountains.
