I'm going to use "cozy cold" next chance I get.

comment Comma before “than” [What better way to celebrate.., than…]
If you're reading this out then you might want to have a comma to pace the sentence and build dramatic tension. What better way... (pause while crowd pays attention) ...to celebrate THIRTY YEARS of [club]... (crowd cheers) ...than with a WIN... (crowd cheers louder) ...against [RIVALS]! (crowd goes wild) I can't think of why else you'd want to insert a pause. You don't need one for clarity.

comment Someone who comes across as “airheaded” but is really quite the opposite
As posted this question needs clarification. Unless it is improved, and I think this can be done only by the OP, then I will vote to close.

Understated seems a good fit.
