Stale, Weary, Flat, Unprofitable

So I'm prone to what they call SAD, or Seasonal Affective Disorder. Basically, I get depressed around December time. Maybe it has to do with Christmas, maybe it's the the solistice, whatever. Right now I hate everybody and I want to stay in bed until January. And I don't even have a cold.

On the plus side, Ellen and I are going to drive to Vegas on Friday, and we're staying the weekend until this whole Godforsaken Christmas thing blows over. We return Monday night. I don't know if it will improve my mood, but at least I'll be cranky in the craziest city in the world.

I think Hamlet said it best: "How stale, weary, flat and unprofitable all the uses of this world seem to me." Assuming that's what he said because I'm too unmotivated to look it up. I'll tell you what else, it makes me feel worse to know that the best description of my own state was written 400 years ago, and he's already made money off it. Unless it was Marlowe. Don't get me started.

Can't be SAD. LA is around 32 degrees north, practically the subtropics. The length of the days down there barely changes with the seasons. Ya gotta have climates first before you can get allergic to them.

On a related note, I just saw a piece on Nightline which featured a service out of Newhall that sprays real snow on people's lawns. Costs thousands, of course. The segment featured the usual sampling of rich LA dimwits prattling on about how much they miss "real" winter.

The lesson here: there are worse ways to handle SoCal winter than yours.

It is always gratifying to see that someone who doesn't know me reads this stuff.
