Winter = 1 , Elena = 0

Alright people, I’ve had it with winter. Sure I’m sick of the cold, and the snow, and the winter wardrobe … but my level of doneness reached a breaking point this weekend. Peter and I were out and about in Midtown yesterday, minding our own business, when we did a little harmless jaywalking. Harmless, until I slipped on a patch of black ice and proceeded to execute a flawless movie-esque fall. Whoop!

Needless to say, I literally can’t move (how they heck did Marv and Harry deal with the pain?), and my weekend has been spent mostly chilling on the couch, rotating heat and ice. I have, however, had an inordinate amount of time to surf the inter-webs. So I bring you this week’s links…

      It’s because NYC doesn’t understand how to use salt!! I’m a midwest girl and it baffles me how new yorkers deal with snow!! spring is pretty much here now though :-)
