7 Things This Winter Taught Us


Winter 2014 will go down in infamy.

1. You will fall.

For winters as far back as 2005, we’ve made fun of falling tourists. “Look! One in a bright pink puffy jacket totally ate it crossing Broadway.” But this year, the karma train has returned to the station. Tourists can’t even get here because Mother Nature was tired of reading “11 Things Only New Yorkers Think Are Funny” articles on Buzzfeed and took it out in weather form. So now it’s our turn. Accept it – you will fall, probably in front of your ex.

2. Make new paths.

giphy (4)
It makes logical sense to go where the sidewalk was just shoveled or where you see a clear path of foot steps. Beware: it’s a trap! Once you’re in it, is harder to get out of than the cronut line. That beautiful sight of a simple walk is a siren’s call to falling (see above), having a shovel of snow thrown in your face, or, worse yet, a hidden river of ice.

3. Your trivia knowledge will expand. A lot.

giphy (1)
Not because you’re playing Trivial Pursuit online against a 9-year-old Korean pen pal, but because you’ll watch so much Netflix even Netflix can’t Netflix enough for you. Once you’ve reached the end of the Romantic Comedy section, and all of the horrible titles from the “Recommended for You” section, you’ll discover the documentary section. At first you’ll think to yourself that docs are dumb and missing a dance number or a plot twist. Six days later, when you crawl out from under a pile of blankets and empty Seamless bags, you’ll have absorbed all the knowledge… and odors.

4. Comfort food is ok.

giphy (2)
Whoever decided diets should start in January obviously never experienced a January as hellishly cold/windy/slushy/WTFisthat as this one. In fact, it was probably someone from a marketing department at the Lettuce Farmers of America who invented New Year’s Resolutions so they could sell more bags of the green stuff. When you look at the thermometer and it laughs at you, or Google weather gives you “ice pellets” as the weather for the day, it’s ok to order a grilled cheese as an appetizer, another as an entree, and one additional as dessert. Tots, on the other hand, count as a vegetable. Go you!

5. Communicating with your loved ones will have to wait.

giphy (3)
The two block walk you used to call grandma and her boyfriend in Palm Beach is now off limits. From learning how to balance a venti blonde roast in one hand and your other buried gripping a dry cleaner ticket from 1987 in your pocket, taking your gloves off and typing in a phone number is physically impossible. Just, no.

6. Train service sucks.

giphy (5)
But it’s the only way to go anywhere. Taxis are impossible, and you’re still mad at the one that drove by and splashed you with muddy water like a slushied dork on Glee. Über is now $10,000 for a ride that was just $23 last week. If you own a car, you’re probably on a yacht in St. Topez now, so please, send an invitation.

7. Your house makes a lot of noise.

giphy (6)
Never have you ever heard that sound. Or that one. At some point before we all lived here, there was a company that invented hotter-than-fire metal tubes that clink clank BANG BANG BANG really loudly. They cause the temperature  to be either Lord-Jesus-be-a-raindrop or Antarctica. Then, it starts. The hisssss. Followed by what sounds like David the Gnome politely banging a tiny gnome hammer on a piece of metal. Suddenly, David the Gnome gets pissed and starts really banging. Air still whizzes and a few big puffs of radiator sweat puffs out of this odd looking mechanism nobody has ever seen before, and the banging then turns into a gurgle, followed by the sound of a sock full of nickles smashing into a bullet train. CLANZAPSAQUE. We had to invent a word that sound is so obnoxious but unique to those hot water filled burn makers. Oh, and you may have a ghost. And no hot water.

8. Los Angeles is a viable option?

giphy (7)
You start going through the list of bonuses. Giant apartment. Great rent. Celebrity neighbors. Then, after a week of being totally stoned to feel like the state of California, you snap out of it when someone asks, “Oh, you’re going to drive again?” Hell no. LA is off the table.

    There’s Food In Your Kitchen You Didn’t Know You Had. When delivery is old hat and the grocery store seems reachable only by snowmobile or halftrack the two-year-old Easy Mac, refried beans, canned chicken and frozen brussels sprouts start looking real good.

    Together with the whole thing that seems to be building throughout this subject matter, all your viewpoints are actually quite refreshing. Nevertheless, I beg your pardon, because I do not give credence to your entire strategy, all be it exciting none the less. It looks to us that your opinions are actually not totally justified and in simple fact you are your self not even completely certain of your argument. In any event I did appreciate reading it.

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type
    on several websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.

    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?

    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    I have been surfing online more than three hours these days, but I never discovered
    any interesting article like yours. It is lovely value enough for
    me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net can be much more helpful than ever before.

    Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out
    pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where
    to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? With thanks

    I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your
    weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you
    customize it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare
    to see a nice blog like this one these days.

  451. Una

    Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a
    captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?

    Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly.

    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking
    issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show
    the same results.
