Losing the last shreds of dignity

The girl at the Fremont Outdoor Movies on Saturday night who was wearing two foldable armchair carrying cases in lieu of sweatshirt sleeves? Yes, that was me. Apparently, I'm the only person in all of Seattle's outdoor-moviegoing crowd too dim to realize that it gets damn cold near the canal after sunset.

In case you're interested, it's very difficult to turn magazine pages when your hands are encased by chair bags. It also makes you sound like a branch of leaves rustling in the wind whenever you move. Or breathe. However, it does make it easy to obtain elbow room in an otherwise-packed venue. Oddly, no one wants to sit within range of Armchair Sleeve Girl.
