I'm having a lot of fun picturing Peter's pyjamas. What must the pattern be? Little Jacob Nielsen faces? Tufte diagrams? Hello Kitty?

Actually, if they aren't that exciting, perhaps a trip to that great store near Noe & 24th is in order...

I don't know that Jakob pyjamas would be much fun...
"Why do these pyjamas have almost no decoration?"...

Dryer fresh clothes are indeed delightful. Going from a hot shower to a warm, freshly dryed towel is also fantastic.

(Now I feel like having a shower, darnit!)
