Watch Your Back Mr. Groundhog


Bill Murray in "Ground Hog Day"

I am sick of winter. It started snowing yesterday at about 8:00AM and it never stopped. I’ve been a Miss Greek Grumpy Pants since then because I am so over winter this year. And it’s only late January.

“I do not like it when it snows. I do not like my frozen toes. I do not like when cold wind blows, I do not like that my house pipes froze.” Ava Aston – Winter 2011

That white crap outside that is falling from the sky put a big damper on all of the things I had planned:

  • I can not just hop in my car and get a cup of Dunkin Donuts Coffee
  • I can not go for a nice 5  mile run with my iPod and sneakers
  • I can not go shopping at the outlets at the Woodbury Commons
  • I can not spend the Kohls’ cash that is burning a hole in my pocket
  • I can not just let my dogs run outside to pee

I would love to be somewhere tropical right now. Somewhere with 85º where I can be in shorts, flips flops and a t-shirt. But no, I’m rolling in New York looking like a wooly mammoth all bundled up in a hat, scarf, my fluffy blanket coat and mittens. That is so messed up. Here are 5 things I can think of that you can do in this weather:






That’s right nothing. Nadda, zip, zero!

Greek Girl Trivia: The first official Groundhog Day was celebrated on February 2, 1886 in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Mr. Bricks say it was a very festive celebration, but he doesn’t remember a whole lot since he was just a kid way back then.

I’m hoping that next Monday February 2nd Punxsutawney Phil doesn’t see his nappy ass shadow, because if he does, I’ll be the Blonde Greek Girl who will hunt down the fat little rodent with my daddy’s rifle – he will be in my crosshairs – just sayin’

    greetings from Greece …

  3. But you can still post! Yah!
    To be honest- the heat is not all great.

    Soon this will be just a memory. It is almost the first of February and the robbins will be appearing in the backyard at the feeder before you know it (I give ’em raisins, they are nuts about them) and then will come summer.

    As you say … Hot.

    August with its unbearable heat.

    It gets so hot in Oklahoma in the summertime, that I once saw a dog chasing a cat, and they were both walking!

    Take my wife … Please.

    Having never seen snow, this pic sure seems lovely Ava. (Not a good thing to say I assume ) .

    Have you given a thought to visiting India ?. Lotsa places here that ain’t so cold in winter and you can always always wear your sneakers here. In all weathers 🙂

    I’m totally with you on this whole winter thing. Telling myself that winter makes me appreciate spring doesn’t quite do it for me.

    hahaha that’s great Ava. I really needed a laugh today and your post helped me out. I hate snow and winter too…in fact I’m boycotting snow. Wanna join? hehe it’s good for moral support. 😉


  10. Hi Ava. I got an e-mail saying you liked one of my Titans posts? Hmmm. Did you hit that button by mistake? Can’t find anything that indicates you’re a Titans fan, but great if you are. Or if it was an accident, thanks anyway. I checked out a couple of your songs. Great stuff. Continued success.
