Tell me about it. I had a big credit card bill before Christmas and now I'm facing a big one tomorrow. In between I lost my card-holder. Weeeeee, ain't we got fun. On the other hand, it's no longer -26 degrees.

So, basically THIS, plus post-Christmas let down.
 
2014-01-06 12:00:57 AM
Leave me alone subby.
 
2014-01-06 12:02:42 AM
It's because all of the mince pies are gone, isn't it?

Every Monday is the most depressing day of the year

/I hate my job

No, Blue Monday.

Well, since the Eastern Orthodox Catholics moved Christmas from the 6th to the 7th, it means I have to keep the Christmas tree up one more day. Hardly depressing.

I believe you'd get your ass kicked sayin' something like that, man.

i'm a little bored, but i wouldnt say i'm depressed.
 
2014-01-06 03:22:51 AM
Yeah, but only because I'm back to work tomorrow

I LOVE that song. Also, you make a very fine cheese.

Not here, subby, not here.
Thank God for all my blessings!!

My ex-wife is suffering from depression. She phoned me the other day and said, "I feel like jumping in front of a train and you're not doing anything to help."

So I sent her a timetable.

I'm sitting in Manas AFB after a 9 month deployment to Afghanistan because our flight home, which was supposed to be today the 6th, was delayed two days because apparently its snowing in Bangor, Maine.

God damn right its depressing.
 
2014-01-06 06:17:38 AM
And seeing this headline as soon as I open Fark is sure to help. Yeesh.

Shut yer cryholes. It's just another day. It's up to you to make it a good one.

Happy birthday John Z. De Lorean!
 
2014-01-06 06:20:49 AM
Ya'll are biatches. I woke up in a GOOD mood. I don't care that I'm a week behind at work, that it's raining, that I'm out of mince pies... Oh God... I'm out of mince pies. The rest I could take, but the PIES, man. I ate them for breakfast. It kinda sick, I know, but there's nothing like a mince pie to start your day. But now... I have nothing but the booze.
 
2014-01-06 06:21:36 AM
The guy across the street is Russian Orthodox. He celebrates Xmas today. I don't think he's sad.

I am actually happy to get back to a normal work schedule. My entire office has been on like 25% staff for 2 months - hell, most of the company has been!
 
2014-01-06 06:27:38 AM
The 1st through the 5th weren't so hot either.
 
2014-01-06 06:31:50 AM
Until Valentines day.. Then they will say it's Valentines day because of all the lonely people.  I say bring on the divorce papers.  I am ready for a trade in anyway 'honey'
 
2014-01-06 06:38:29 AM
Well, yeah. Dental work sucks.
 
2014-01-06 06:39:11 AM
I had a shiatty Christmas and a fantastic New Year. The high's worn off but life is ok. Y'all can keep your pity party, the rope and chairs are in the garage if you need them.
 
2014-01-06 06:43:57 AM
Hmm. Last year they claimed January 21st is the most depressing day. Link to stink
 
2014-01-06 06:48:00 AM
I spent the week of Christmas at my mother's house staying in the guest bedroom. The next week, business is slow because of a holiday celebrating the day the calendar changes to 2014. I am extremely thankful to be back to the normal routine.
 
2014-01-06 06:48:48 AM
Not seeing it myself. Just had dinner at the space needle and I'm getting ready to fly down to Vegas for CES and then AEE.If stuff in your life sucks, change your stuff.

You're right, it would have been so much better if you had not come home at all

It only seems depressing because everyone is comparing themselves to everyone else.

Got a hot cup of coffee.  Cat is upside down next to the keyboard.  Taking care of billing that can go out today or tomorrow.  Can't complain too loudly!
 
2014-01-06 07:03:04 AM
No more depressing than any other day of the year. No less either. Not like any day really matters anyhow. Whatever. Nevermind.
 
2014-01-06 07:03:26 AM
According to Divorce Depot.co.uk - an online divorce specialist - 1.8million couples will have rowed over the festive break.

So, they should've gotten a motorboat instead?
 
2014-01-06 07:05:36 AM
The only thing depressing about this time of year is that without fail shiatrags like the Daily Mail use it as an excuse to run some non-news about it being the most depressing time of the year. Usually backed up with some nonsense PR from a company with a product to sell which this year was Evian. Thankfully they didn't hire some scientist to "prove it" with some nonsensical equation - probably holding that one back for another day.

Nah, January 9th is the new January 6th.

I dread Vday,  I've never had a g/f on that day,  some would consider that lucky but it bums me out.
 
2014-01-06 07:15:33 AM
Because Starbucks doesn't have the red cups anymore?

On this date in 1979, my sister married a pro golfer. They are still together, bless them.  I'll mail her a happy anniversary. Think I'll skip forwarding this article. And no, he never won the PGA. Nice guy though.

Don't think since I was 15 I've been single on Valentines day but I can see where it would bum you out.  Often times my wife and I throw a RHPS theme party for friends and a lot of the singles end up hooking up.
Best of luck this year!

I love today. I'm finally back to work after two months of unemployment. We all agreed not to have a consumer Christmas this year so no debt, just food, drinking and music. Nobody got shiatfaced (not even on New Years) and everybody had a good time. I had a brief but fun Internet romance. My credit score is still good and my car is taking a single digit winter like a champ. Yeah for January, the easiest month to lose 10 pounds. I also love how all the work metrics get wiped clean and were back in the green!

Thanks for the chuckle this A.M.

Yeah the only times I've had a gf on valentine's day is when I've been with the same girl for like 6 months or more

It's still unbearably dark before and after work and it will be for several more weeks. Yet we all have to take down our lighting displays that helped brighten things up just a little.
 
2014-01-06 07:51:14 AM
Going to see BB King Friday night...just have to make it through the workweek.

/the thrill is gone
 
2014-01-06 08:02:34 AM
I dunno.... I think I might have crossed over some invisible line somewhere, 'cause I don't hate going to work anymore - even on a monday.

/...Kids! it's having kids that does it!
 
2014-01-06 08:04:42 AM
It's also Epiphany.  Why is there a scheduled day for Epiphany?
 
2014-01-06 08:05:31 AM
It's the day after my birthday, a Monday, the start of the first full 5-day work week in a while and we're short-handed at the office. And it's 17 below zero as I type this. And I'm sick...but not sick enough to miss work.
 
2014-01-06 08:09:17 AM
I'm a lineman, all of January can kiss a dead rat's ass.
