Kathy Bradley: Baby, it's cold outside!

Like some kind of wizard, I spent the month of December utilizing potion (Jergens Natural Glow self-tanner) and incantation - "I would like a table outside, please" ­- to excellent effect in holding cold weather at bay. But the cold did eventually come - just in time for New Year's and all its frenetic, slightly underwhelming, overly affected examination of human behavior.
