Watch Sophie the cat try to… More »
You’re off on a romantic ski weekend. You’ve never skied, or you’re not very good, but your chivalrous man-toy has promised to teach you.

It’s this cat’s first time experiencing snow, and I can’t tell whether she’s horrified or disturbingly enthused, but doesn’t her ability to find something to be expressive about during the Worst Season Ever make winter’s onset a little bit easier? Do you think she has the sheer terror on her mind that the rest of… More »
It’s no secret that I hate winter with a very special kind of passion, which is unfortunate considering the fact that on the East Coast it tries to linger on all the way into late April like a bitter ex that won’t go away.

Last weekend, I went skiing for the first time in over 10 years. To say I was nervous and excited would be an understatement; in the days leading up to my trip, I couldn’t help but worry about breaking a limb or, I don’t know, being crushed by an avalanche.
Thankfully, the friends… More »

Itching to relive the winter wonderland of the past few months? Well, if you’ve got $10 million dollars and a really big cooler, a guy in Rotherham, UK, will happily sell you an “unassembled snowman,” aka a big pile of snow. But hey, if that’s too rich for your blood, you can also take a… More »
It’s officially spring, but many parts of the country are still blanketed with snow. Want to cut through the slush in style? Try a toe plow, which is exactly what it sounds like: a tiny snow plow that attaches to the toe of your shoe. Apparently you can make your own toe plow with some PVC… More »
The worst part about the snowpocalypse was that no one was prepared for it. If I had known that Ed Westwick was going to be stranded at the airport in Iceland for 48 hours, I would have been waiting there to “entertain” him. But alas, the “Gossip Girl” bad boy “walked into the duty-free shop… More »
