My mom's nickname is Cleopatra as well, har har
And Martini, yes, a "mink blanket". It's this ultra-warm thang. It's super fibers on one side, all short and minkey (but animal-free) and on the other side, the fibers are longer and soft. The amount of air this thing traps for warmth is amazing. I love it to death. Over hear they go for 40 to 50 dollars, but on ebay they are a bit cheaper. In Korea, they are anywhere from 15 to 25 dolla'h.
Mine is a king or queen size. It's stoopid huge and steel grey. When I'm trashed and hubby is snoring, I have to pick the whole heavy thing up carefully so I don't step on it and fall down the steps.
He goes to Japan in 3 weeks, where there are more mink blankeys. I am telling him to please bring a slightly smaller grey one back so I can leave it up here and further lessen my possibility of ankle injury.
I had to edit for spelling because I'm past the point of no return.....
You deserve all the puffery you can get
