Fingers Crossed for Something Above 24 Degrees

Oy this winter. It's been so cold and dark that I may kill the next person who complains about the cold and dark. Today I bought some Vitamin D in the hopes that it will make my body trick my brain out of winter depression. I'll let you know how that goes. For now, we've been hanging up pictures around the house. BF has been applying to grad schools and I've been dreaming of ways to spend my tax return:

On Saturday, my mom, a friend and I went to the Knickerbocker Ice Festival up at Rockland Lake. I know there was something educational to be gleaned from the whole affair, but it was so fucking freezing that the best I could do was get a couple of pictures. Below are some of the incredible ice sculptures set up around the lake. Most of them were ships.... wish I could tell you why!

Hi. I was looking for press about our gig (we played the next day at the Ice Festival- www.thestateworkers.com ) and came across your lovely photos of the ice and birds and stuff! So thank you.
BTW the boats were ice models of the boats used by the two first white guys to sail down the Hudson River, who then begin gypping the natives (a trend that never fell out of fashion, so to speak).
allright then.
