Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Baby It’s Cold Outside Edition

I was lucky enough to have a three day weekend last weekend and I spent almost all of it, with the exception of one hour, in my apartment because the thought of going outside was too much for me to handle. With the temperature dipping into the negative and the wind chill adding insult to injury, it seemed easier to just hibernate for as long as possible. Even the thought of going to the movies to continue my Oscar death race seemed like too much trouble. My DVR had filled up during my vacation, so I curled up on the couch and powered through 8 hours of The Tonight Show while listening to the heat running non-stop for 72 hours. Thank the dear Lord that I don’t live in Boston – not only would I  be surrounded by  Sox and Pats fans *shudder* but I do not think I could handle all the snow that they have. Boston Strong has taken on a whole new meaning. I tip my winter hat to New England – you are better people than I (only when it comes to weather).

Being under self-imposed house arrest also allowed me plenty of time to seek out pop culture nuggets for this week’s roundup. There’s something in here for everyone, so warm yourself with the pop culture goodness that I’ve uncovered.
