Christmas Whale

Quick question for you guys, before we get to Christmas Whale. Does anyone else experience Cocoonitis? See the following texting:

Me (at 11 am on the weekend): I made a cocoon of warmth and blankets in my bed and now I'm unable to get up. Nooooo
Boyfriend: You redefine sloth.
Me: Hey! This is a real disease. Cocoonitis. I've had since my parents made me sleep in 60 degrees growing up.
Boyfriend: There are less charitable names for it.
I mean, this is a real condition, don't you think? I'm SURE I'm not the only one out there suffering.

 Anyways, let's move on. Time for another Christmas Animal

Christmas Whale's Wish: For world peace. Or maybe green peace. I don't know, just SAVE THE WHALES!!

Sally the Whale isn't the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree, but she sure is passionate!

  1. I'd hate to see what happened to the Christmas whale after the Christmas Japanese Whalers get a hold of him.
    I've hear your cocoonitis referred to as "cozy-ness". Your boyfriend's response, however, was priceless.

  2. I call it being snug-as-a-bug while The Editor calls it Rasslin with the blankies. It is a terrible condition though when you are unable to emerge from it as the elements are simply too dangerous!

  3. At the Hoo Household, this condition is called "Bed Taco." And once you get engulfed in the Bed Taco, there is no escape...

  6. I call it making myself the human burrito. I turn my heater down to 60 at night too. So I have self inflicted cocoonitis.

  7. Cocoonitis is a very real affliction, as my parents also kept it at 60 in the house. Who needs to pay an extra $5 per month for heating when you can walk around the house in a parka?

  8. If I didn't have to get up to use the bathroom, I would never leave my bed. If you're going to have any disease, cocoonitus is a good one.

  9. It is definitely a disease. Lucky for you, the treatment is simple. Stay wrapped in your blankets.

  10. That santa hat must be fairly large, I wonder where that whale got it from.

  11. So glad to finally know the name for this condition! I usually cocoon myself on the sofa in the evenings, wrapping the afghan around my legs and pulling it up to my chin while we watch the tube.

  12. Who wants to get out of blankets! I think you have a disease if you don't wrap yourself in blankets.

    Man that Christmas whale looks so happy. I hope santa brings Christmas Whale lots of fishy gifts.

  13. I suspect, if "cocoonitis" really is a condition - and I have my doubts - then I'll bet it almost exclusively affects the female of the species.....and cats.

  14. LOL!! Cocoonitis? I've never heard of that...but if you need someone to back you up, I got you girl! hahaha

  15. OMG... I have cocoonitis too!! It ravages my mind and body on a weekly basis. I hope doctors would prescribe heavy pain killers for it, right?

  16. Cocoonitis is a victimless illness :)
    Christmas Whale looks very happy and carefree.

    Is it just me, or is your follower number rocketing up??

  17. Cocoonitis.

    It's not a disease, it's a way of life.

  18. I agree with Cranface: Cocoonitis is a way of life. It should be THE LIFE but for now it's just a way...

    Great blog Gia!!!!
