couldn't keep it in, heaven knows i've tried  
you know, there’s that part of frozen where the ice queen leans out the window atop the gorgeous massive ice castle she created out of nothing, by waving around her arms, all while she's singing her brains out. i mean, most of us are not capable of singing with that much of our bodies as an isolated and fully focused activity, forget while we are also in the process of demonstrably transmogrifying thought into matter. but in that moment, she looks right at the camera, right into your soul, and declares, “the cold never bothered me anyway.”

and in spite of everything, you find yourself thinking, that woman is pretty freaking badass.

I've never seen Frozen, but maybe I should, eh?

Keep warm! I've been compulsively listening to WTOP on my Echo, worrying about my Baltimore-Washington Corridor friends. My photos from the Snowpocalypse of 2010, which I've reviewed, remind me why I sold my house and moved away...

i primarily watched it to earn the favor of baltimore niece. it was the first time i'd watched a new disney movie since... my brother was wee, i think. part of it was, "holy cow, this is great! dialog coheres, excellent pacing, and there hasn't been a single five minute long parking sequence." then it struck me that possibly too much of what i watch is MST3K and art films. but yeah, that frozen movie, it's pretty good!

i still don't know that it's going to compete with 2014, which was the winter we recrafted the apartment into quite the little bomb shelter. when the wind blows (which it will be doing a lot) the plastic on the windows all buckles inward.

I like you.



But you are not tricking me into watching this movie.



Mind you, if anyone could, it would be you.



Did you know my real name is an anagram for Ghoul Army?

BUT QUEEN ELSA IS WAITING FOR YOU.

or that anna. she's the ginger. make sure you pronounce her name right though, baltimore niece gets adorably miffed.

i like you, too, and i had your ghoul army all figured out but thank you for the confirmation.

Last night little J sang that very line and slammed the door to her room in my face after I tried to convince her to put on some pajamas instead of wandering around naked.

In other words, thank goddess for a Disney princess/queen with some backbone. However COMPLETELY MADDENING it may be to encourage independent thought in a child... it's worth it. We did have a talk about not slamming her door, after which she carefully and gently closed the door again in my face.

For the record, she did end up finding clothes to put on, just not pajamas. Because Elsa doesn't wear pajamas, mom, GOD.

Also, it is appropriate that she is the representation of winter, because sounds like this storm has some serious attitude. Stay warm!

I just have to let you know that I find this adorably hilarious. And something my 6 year old would totally do because she often wants to just wander around naked too. And I think to myself less about the nakedness than the fact that she (shockingly) isn't freezing her tiny butt off.

baltimore niece is three and when we went over to visit early last week (in the mid-30s) she was wearing a SLEEVELESS SUNDRESS with a bare back and no tights (at her loud insistence, heavens spare the authority figure who attempts to put more clothing on baltimore niece.) i do not understand, except for that maybe the distinct feeling of "feeling cold" only distinguishes itself from "general discomfort" as you get older. she's one of those kids who doesn't seem to understand that she's hungry, either, which doesn't seem uncommon. it's a wonder we figure out when we need to use the restroom as young as we do.

This is so true with KK. I think it was two weeks ago she put on a sun dress with no sleeves. And then wanted to leave the house that way. Finally I said eff it, made her put on tights and a warm jacket that she promised not to remove and we were good. But still....she has ZERO percent body fat practically. This little chickie is in like the 18th percentile for size and yet she can wear a sundress, or a sports bra and shorts or shorts and a tshirt, or not a STITCH of clothing and be fine. Me on the other hand? Cold. Always cold. Forever cold. Never warm. It's not fair.

She is always hungry though. ;-)

Yes, exactly. I know they run warm but I guess they also just don't mind being cold?? It's funny the things the types of discomfort that kids are totally okay with versus the things that are completely unbearable, like having to use a blue spoon.

LOVE.

we're effectively buried for the time being. ben PROMISED he was just going to clear out enough to make the real clear out (for which i will help) a little easier (they haven't plowed our street yet and probably won't until tomorrow) ...but he's been down there for a while. hmmm.

I love Frozen. I wish my kids wanted to watch it more often.
