I’m surprised it took me this long to get sick, considering most of my sleep sessions include an hour around 3:30AM, another two around 5:30, and then if I’m really lucky, a slick two hour nap sometime in the afternoon. Last night was no exception. My crazy Italian worry genes make it so I cannot think, cannot rest, cannot sleep until all of my loved ones are safely where they belong, especially when travel is involved. The poor hubs didn’t arrive in Halifax until 5:30AM AST, and then went on to teach like a trooper. Me? I woke up with a sore throat and spent the day hibernating. I just recently changed out of pajamas, and what I’m wearing now is very, very loosely based on actual clothes.
The POLAR VORTEX is making it even easier to stay inside. I was caught off guard by the deceptive lack of a large precipitation mass over Lake Erie, and an overconfidence in my experience as a Buffalonian. It’s definitely getting bad out there, so please be careful. In honor of not going anywhere tonight, possibly tomorrow, and maybe even Wednesday, I’ll be working on a double Sampler feature this evening. Go ahead, pinch yourself.

5 Ways to Make Homemade Flatbread Pizza (Bon Appetit) – Please tell me you bought flatbreads at the store when you went out for bread, milk, and eggs. If not, don’t read this. Or do, and cry into your 3rd meal of scrambled eggs and toast.
Benefits of Red Wine (The Daily Meal) – Part of my new health plan is to drink every day. Seriously, I’m not kidding. ONE glass of red wine every day is recommended for all kinds of health benefits. I guess I really need to invest in a wine stopper… You know I have a little issue with portion control.
Andrew Luck Caught By Surprise in Locker Room Tweet (Time Sports) – The punter for the Indianapolis Colts Pat McAffee made a big boo-boo.. or maybe… a little boo-boo…when accidentally capturing QB Luck in a very naked Twitter photo post-game. Heh. Maybe not so lucky..?
The Best of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon (NBC-LateNightWithJimmyFallon.com) – Even if you’re not a normal Late Night consumer, you will laugh through this entire thing, I PROMISE. It was so enjoyable, and the perfect way to get ready for when J.Fall takes over The Tonight Show on February 17th. I can’t believe I’m actually going to watch The Tonight Show for the first time in my entire life!
