i don't wanna

Baby, it's cold
Some days—maybe every day this week, the way it looks—it's better just to stay inside and read and write if you can.
Things of interest:
The post-valentine roundup from Time: An absolutely hilarious review of the book Fifty Shades of Grey from Dave Barry. And views of real-life BDSM from photographers including our own Donna Ferrato, the dominatrix of Love and Lust.
For those of you who got a kick out of the 36 questions that can make you fall in love in the NYT, there is a mobile app  ( http://nyti.ms/1CnN2i6 ), too, in case you meet an intriguing stranger on the fly. And then there was the hilarious To Fall Out of Love, Do This in the New Yorker.
Milena Pastreich, stepsister of my stepson (can you follow this?) has her short film, coming-of-age story I Feel Stupid on line right now. It's about love, too. Watch and comment. NO BDSM.
Would be interesting to see the following map of the hardest places to live in the U.S. (uh oh Ozarks) combined with the geography of the $90 million weekend opening of Fifty Shades. I'm guessing escapism would be key in Mississippi.
As it is here in New York. And, I guess, everywhere.
 Especially everywhere it's freezing out.

LOVE the article by Dave Barry.
I might add, the enormous popularity of this inane book among the women of the world makes me question whether women are in fact, the superior sex.
