You guys might remember my “Skryim Week” from three Novembers ago. Dragon Age Inquisition is another such giant fantasy game, due out very soon. I’ve been looking forward to it for years, and I fully intend to sacrifice a giant portion of my life to it, so now I must gird my loins and stock my larders.
Generally speaking, I’m not somebody who owns any lounge gear. Most of the time I’m either in jeans and shirts and sweaters, or I’m sleeping. But at 3am in my freezing winter apartment with a new game I can’t (or won’t) turn off, I face a whole different set of needs, and those needs are all solved by a onsie.
God, I love a onsie! If you’re one of those people who never really gets cold, then you may be growing bored at this point. But since I’m more amphibian than mammal, it’s pretty much the only thing that will temporarily seal in the fading warmth of my seven hot baths a day. Yes. To me, nothing is more exciting than a onsie.
So relating it all back to Dragon Age, here’s my fantasy videogame outfit. My actual onsie isn’t quite that handsome, alas! But it’s functional, and it seems to be lasting forever. For added warmth I’ll be draping myself in ancient, fetid sheepskins (charming), and boiling myself endless cups of tea that will sit by my elbow and cool to room temperature before I remember to drink them. The muffin might be wishful thinking (I’ll buy food, yes, but I’ll probably also eat it all within 24 hours). That’s ok, I like to draw muffins.
