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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

It's most miserable time of the year
With the credit cards calling
And rain always falling, and I'm out of beer
It's the most miserable time of the year
It's the crap-crappiest season of all
With those holiday hangovers, three tons of leftovers
And no friends at all
It's the crap-crappiest season of all

It's Twelfth Night here in New Orleans, the beginning of carnival season. Party at Vaughn's, costume required.
 
2014-01-06 08:25:34 AM  
I'm still too much of a zombie at work to be depressed today. By next Monday I'll be cranky. Just realised this fits the Kübler-Ross model, so:

Monday 6th Jan - Denial
Monday 13th Jan - Anger
Monday 20th Jan - Bargaining
Monday 27th Jan - Depression
Monday 3rd Feb -  Acceptance

Conclusion - 27th Jan will be the most depressing day this year.

Yeah, same here. Being single on Valentine's Day certainly makes for a cheap holiday, but it can be a little awkward when all your friends have plans of some sort and nobody wants the odd man out hanging around.

The holidays are over, short work days and paid vacations are over, the weather is the worst it will be all year, and I'm stuck in traffic on my way to sit at a desk for 9 hours.
 
2014-01-06 08:50:12 AM  
Today is one of the worst days for me. But we've got a really big group coming in this week (I work at a retreat center) and I always enjoy hanging out with the guests and getting to know them and such. Plus I've got 2 upcoming speaking engagements and a conference to plan for (all of which I am looking forward to).

The only real bummer is that the weather is absolute crap, and I don't feel good about a project I'm working on that will account for roughly a 3rd of my year once it's in place.

2014-01-06 08:52:30 AM  
technically yesterday was the 12th day but I'll put my christmas lights on one last time tonight.  I feel cheated by the short season this year.  So nice and pleasant to have them turning away the horrid darkness that still starts way too early.  Once it is light up to supper time (and we're not early eaters), then I can accept the night again.

/Wish I could keep the lights on at least to the end of January, or maybe Groundhog's Day.

Exactly. I plan to change a few things-- take down the overt Christmas stuff, replace them with generic winter-themed stuff-- and leave the lights up until winter's over.

I really think I must be one of the few people who are happy to see the holidays and Christmas behind us.

My favorite holiday is the 4th of July - the only expectations anyone has is that you need to grill something.  And then blow up some fireworks - or drive somewhere, and watch someone else blow up even bigger fireworks.

I actually dislike the holidays because it involves me traveling and spending money on dumb shiat that nobody wants and receiving crap I don't want and then returning said crap to the store so I love the post-holidays.  I can unwind on the weekends without having prior obligations.  Plus, by the end January  the days are noticeably longer and there are less cloudy days (at least where I live).

November and December are the months that suck.
 
2014-01-06 09:33:02 AM  
Oh, so you assholes with your farking 2 months of Xmas spooge and "War on Christmas" whining suddenly feel a LET DOWN when your worldwide takeover ends and the holiday hangover hits?  NOW you care more about debt and getting back to being a jerk every day, and to hell with the "true meaning" of Xmas, which you preached even as you banged every credit card you could find?

It's certainly starting out depressing, considering I'm trying to investigate whether my health insurance went thru or not for Massachusetts. Nothing like being on hold for 45 minutes, then the second you get through, the biatch hangs up on you. I'd use the website, except it was made in Canada, and doesn't work.

Did I say depressing? I meant infuriating.

For my neighbor, the 5th was the most depressing day of the year. I say this because he took his own life in his driveway, with his wife and 3 kids inside his house. And being that our houses are close to each other, me in my bedroom, 10 feet from where it happened. His wife and I had to watch as the firedepartment hosed down his car, my side of the house and his driveway to get it cleaned up........ Later, I had to call the coroner back out to my house to do a sweep of my backyard. My dogs had found a piece of his skull.

Especially for those in the north, I know it sucks since the days are so short. But take heart! Each day is longer than the last from now until June 21st or so. And the amount of daylight accelerates between now and March 21st or so. So take cheer in that.

Well that is certainly a different way of interpreting Floating Holiday haha.  Our company allows us to float any holiday - meaning we can work if we want to and bank that for a vacation day later but it has to be in the same calendar year.  Last year I worked the 4th of July and took that Friday for a 3 day weekend instead.

HaywoodJablonski: SteveFU: For my neighbor, the 5th was the most depressing day of the year. I say this because he took his own life in his driveway, with his wife and 3 kids inside his house. And being that our houses are close to each other, me in my bedroom, 10 feet from where it happened. His wife and I had to watch as the firedepartment hosed down his car, my side of the house and his driveway to get it cleaned up........ Later, I had to call the coroner back out to my house to do a sweep of my backyard. My dogs had found a piece of his skull.

That sucks. Any idea what led him to that?


No clue, my wife and I talk to his wife more than we talked to him. He was kinda distant and kept to himself a lot. We had no idea that something was going wrong.

QueenMamaBee: The loudmouth dumbass in the corner is back to work today.... so I'm rather depressed. Last week was like a vacation for my ears.


I thought that said loudmouth bass and I was really confused about what you did for a living.

Who knows. Maybe marrying his wife and having kids ended up being his own personal hell. He thought life would turn out differently and he finally came to the conclusion that this was the only way out.

Either that or he for himself in too much debt which is way more depressing than people imagine.

Either way, it sucks for his family. You don't recover from something like that for a long time.

As we just got 16-18 inches of snow dumped on us over the weekend, I had to work the whole weekend with a late shift last night causing me to have to drive home at 10pm after most of the snow was down and the plow trucks were shut down for the evening, I'm in a good mood.  I am off work today and get to play in the snow while everyone else is fighting to get to work.  I hope to go sledding, later dudes.

Americans can't have epiphany, since we've banned incandescent light bulbs.

No, we will have to settle for slowly increasing understanding, as illustrated by a CFL.

lol'd & stopped reading with the quote: 'According to DivorceDepot.co.uk'

Guessing any reporter who regularly checks -that- site would write every 'news report' w/ a negative slant?

/hey Boo_Guy - pin a note up at your job offering to ride share to the ski & snowboard slopes this winter - you'll have people to hang out with, and probably a gf by Feb 14 :)

We still have LED's and those are a kind of like incandescent without the vacuum bulb.

I'm almost at the point of understanding this. Give me a few minutes.

Its definitely been a rough span of weeks in my household, depression has abounded since before the holidays. I believe it.

Despite having no job for over a year (how I envy those who have a job to go to today!), having to pay $800 (that we needed for food and stuff) to fix our ancient car that will probably die completely in under a month with our luck, and having a horrible case of strep throat, I was actually looking forward to today as my high energy 4 year old would be back at school and I was finally going to get a chance to clean my house properly and maybe get in a much needed nap.

As it stands, I got next to no sleep last night due to my throat pain, was up at 6:30 getting my kid ready for school (with him whining the whole time about not wanting to go), and didn't think to check if the buses were running until we'd walked all the way to the bus stop on glare ice in freezing rain and noticed we were the only ones there.

Turns out they were cancelled. a fact I could have learned if I'd bothered to check the website when I woke up but didn't. So I got out of bed and got my kid ready for school for no reason at all and now I'm trying to doze on the couch as he bounces off the walls, thrilled that (he thinks) he got what he wanted and doesn't have to go to school.

The buses better be running tomorrow. I need a farking nap.

It's the WORST day, since YESTERDAY.

--some Irish band I cannot remember the name right now, and I'm too depressed to care.

Jesus! I normally come on Fark because I'm depressed and need to be cheered up..this is just making it worse.

I like January.  Other than having to pay the piper from Christmas celebrating, it's a fairly good month for me. The days are getting longer. All the great winter clothing goes on sale. There are bowl games and playoff games, with some basketball in between. My raise goes into effect. I have only one family birthday to remember. My work is slowest this time of year; so slow, in fact, that we take a week's vacation each year the third week of January.

Now, if the weather is so bad on January 17th that our flight to San Juan is delayed, January will seem quite sucky...

Come on people, spring has never been closer.  After spending spring to fall in a cast, I am so looking forward to spring and being able to take the Hog for a ride for the 1st time in a long time. Every day brings me closer.

Plus, as already stated, this is the anniversary of my arrival in this country. Woohoo !

Flogging Molly, and only the singer is Irish, the rest are Americans.

Started my new healthier regimine today (8 hours of sleep even if I want to stay up and watch tv, light exercise in the morning and a little yoga in my office at lunch, water with every meal, and no desserts or soda).  I actually feel pretty damn good.

\although I do want a cupcake
