Which contradicts the statement that the previous day was the most depressing during the year. Therefore, our assumption was wrong. Of course, there's the case where this could happen on Dec 31 - Jan 1, but during those days most of the world is really crazy to be depressed.It should be a very good bottle, otherwise you'd wake up with a hangover tomorrow. Which will make you late for work, get you fired / fail your exam, and give you an even more depressing day.
Interesting. Though that's also when the weather (at least around here) starts to change from warm and sunny to chilly and cloudy, so maybe it's the need to adjust to the change in weather not so much the duration of exposure to it (besides, by the mid-winter holidays, you can get on a plane and go someplace warm and sunny).The interesting thing is it peaks not in the winter but in October-November. It's the anticipation of the long winter that sets people off, not the reality of it.
Sounds like one of those rare, perfect days, when time seems to just laze along...nice!Today doesn't feel very depressing to me at all. It's the first day in about 3 weeks I've gotten to really sleep in. I have to make one short trip out to do a bit of work, but since it's a university holiday, I get the rest of the day off. It's bright and sunny (though bitter cold, but that doesn't matter when I can just enjoy basking in the sunlight streaming through a window), and my houseguest for two weeks left over the weekend, so I finally have my house back to myself. I thought today was a pretty great day. It would be wonderful if this is the most depressing a day ever got this year.
Someone check the paper tomorrow and see how many brokers jumped out of windows today.http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/7199552.stm
