Ten Things That Are Getting Me Down, or Why Today Suckethed Mightily

  1. I went out to the gay bar for two-dollar beer last night, and all I got was this hideous hangover.

  2. The H1N1 strain of the flu took my friend Dougal, who was just shy of his 32nd birthday.

  3. A friend is struggling with the pain of her marriage ending.

  4. I have a birthday on December 29th, and I am one of those people who is entirely too preoccupied with death to enjoy them.

  5. Sunset was at 4:55 p.m. today.

  6. I have issues with seasonal depression. My issue? I hate it.

  7. I feel like I have stories bubbling just below the surface, but ever since I completed NaBloPoMo, the words just won't come as easily as I am used to.

  8. There is nothing more interesting to eat around here for supper other than popcorn.

  9. All three of our radiators have started leaking like running faucets:

  10. I think I am going to buy four Snuggies. No, I know I am going to buy four Snuggies. Or at least some kind of slanket equivalent. My brain's predictable reaction to advertising is pathetic.
