  3. I clicked over here from a work document, and had the exact same expression on my face as Huck. Made me snort (hopefully not loud enough to hear in the hallway). I'm ready for February, too! Let's get there already.

  4. Huck looks how I feel haha. Roll on February! On top of January being lousy at the best of times, England's infrastructure cannot cope with the teeniest bit of snow (and we've had loads this month- hence, disaster!).

  6. To me, January feels like a slow decent into February, which really is one of awfullest. I can't wait until March.

  7. When you said "it HAS TO BE" it made me think of You've Got Mail when Joe Fox shakes the fence after finding out Kathleen Kelly is attractive and says "SHE HAD TO BE" through clenched teeth.

  8. Miss Natalie. All of these cold weather posts are helping me with my random decision to move to LA. Because I miss that city SO. But then I read your January hatred posts and I'm all ME TOO I HAVE THAT HATRED TOO and feel much better about being so far from everyone I love. Hold tight - Feb will be here in no time at all.

  9. I heard someone here say that same expression "Its colder than a witch's tit in a brass bra." Oh, and I live in Florida. They obviously have lived here their entire life. I know what cold is like, I'm originally from Maine. You have my utmost respect for braving that - sinks into your bones and stays - kind of cold and still taking the kiddo out. I don't know if I could do that anymore!

  17. If that movie can't save your January, nothing can! February is the month I hate. I am so over being cold by February.

  18. yuck, i had to do the freeze-walk (slash jog) today when my bus detoured due to a red bull crashed ice event (yuck)....only to drop me off a mile from home in below zero weather. stay warm, and more importantly, stay sane from being indoors more!

  19. "i've never hated a month as much as i've hated this january" - no lie, I have both thought and said that exact sentence about a hundred times this month. really. you literally took the words out of my mouth.

  22. My Dad always used to say "It's colder than a mother-in-laws heart" - and I'm with you on January, she can kindly leave.

  29. Can I ask you a New York City traveling question? We are planning a trip in May and I'm nervous about the bed bug issue. Is it as bad as I hear? Is it just luck of the draw? I've been looking at hotels and I hear different reports...Do you have any advice or places to stay away from?? Thank you!!

    1. Use the Bed Bug Registry to check out the hotels that you are looking at. I used it when we were looking for a new apartment. Good luck!

  32. This year I decided that the best way to get through January is just to pretend it's a part of February and start decking everything out in pink and red. It looks like most of the blogosphere has joined me! :)

  36. yeah, i'm with you. i think january's a crueler month than april. sorry, eliot. huck's face says it all.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yeah, January is rough, but nothing, NOTHING, compares to February to me. It's just the worst of the worst in my opinion. At least there's candy involved, but still. ONTO MARCH!

    1. Also, you need to make a Huck calendar,and his face is definitely for January. (get one of him crying for February. You'll thank me later.)

  38. Sorry you hate January so much. Happy for you that it is almost over! Normally I love January. Yeah...I'm a cold, snowy winter lover...I'm weird like that. Last January sucked. I think it was partly because the weather was really mild and I was all sorts of disgruntled about it. But probably even more it had to do with the fact that a bunch of my friends were getting divorces and it was just overwhelming and horrible (but that's a whole other story.) This January....LOVE! We here in northern Utah are getting a complete smack down by Mother Nature. It's like she turned on the faucets for snow and then forgot and went on vacation or something. And then in-between snow storms we're having freezing cold negative temps, and fog of the pea soup variety, and freezing rain...what? Never seen freezing rain before...that was an adventure! So though most of my fellow Utahans would probably disagree mightly with me, this is the most awesome January EVAH!! :) (Plus, I got to go to San Francisco a couple of weekends ago...and I'm not going to lie, the 64 degree temps and sunshine was a nice little booster...)

  39. I find it hard to hate January since it's my birthday month, but girl, I feel ya. It seems as if there is a January hatin' epidemic out there right now. And I must say, I'm happy to see February come as well. I'm not sure why, but I just am.
