It is times like this when I really feel I need to get away. Slush, wind, and ice (ice under slush? kill me now). While I'm sure January still exists in NYC or Paris (if you read that with a French accent, the two cities rhyme), a little vacation never did anyone any harm. Plus, there would be less tourists. It's that ugly time of year between the winter holidays and Easter. But alas, I cannot afford to jet half-way around the country, or half-way around the world, so I'm stuck with these wooden guys (plus the screen saver of Hong Kong on my laptop...). Wooden Statue of Liberty stamp and Paris wooden block toys (which is perfect for a desk decoration or any YUPy babies you know), both from http://www.muji.us.
