  1. “You’re not ashamed to admit that adulting is hard and everyone could use a hug sometimes, even your mouth.”

    I feel called out. Yep, adulting is hard and hot chocolate makes everything better, especially now I finally have mini marshmallows to do it properly.

  2. i couldn’t find something to pick for the 2nd and 3rd ?s… is there a “depends on if i could sleep and ‘if so comin atcha’, ‘if no then i’ll be with you in a minute'” option?

  3. Gripper slippers, ok. I…might be wearing mid-calf insulated hiking boots right now, at 1 am, because I didn’t want to take them off after my walk hours ago because my normal slippers don’t go up that high so I’m basically using my boots as gripper slippers. I just came here to have fun, Heather.

    Also, Heather, my love, my icon, how in the name of all that is holy or otherwise am I supposed to choose between those toast options? The answer is all of them. (Not all at once.) I cling to my belief that I am *really* hot chocolate and it is only your obfuscatory toast dilemma (decalemma?) that prevented my hot chocolateness from showing through. I’ll comfort myself with hot chocolate tomorrow, but for now I’m going to bed. After I warm up a rice pack for my feet, because we supposed gripper slippers do not suffer cold toes when a solution is at hand. (Foot.)

  4. Poplin pajamas! “You are classic, stylish, and don’t mind watching your favorite movies over and over and over.”

    I was hoping for hot tea (hot tea is an option, right?) but now that I think about it, last night I wore my fave pink silk pajama pants and comfy cotton nightshirt while my spouse and I ate toaster oven s’mores while watching a documentary about backyard bees.

    So what I’m saying is, I’ll accept stylish and classic.

    And thank you Heather for a quiz that felt like a warm blanket on a cold night.

  5. I got Wine by the Fire, very accurate. Even if the fire is a Youtube channel and the wine sometimes segues into a single malt, this is definitely my Fall and Winter jam.

    Thank you Heather (sorry I didn’t choose your teddy bear in the end, that was a bit stressful but I went with my heart, you know ? But I’m still glancing back at it…)

  6. “You like your winter weather settings to be intimate and photo-worthy, and don’t mind the reminder that sometimes things just need to burn until they vanish.” This is so metal.
