Not to be a bad humbug person, but I really dislike this time of the year. Sun light, or lack of, really affects me. The grey days, that get shorter and shorter, just drag me down. I am counting down to the 21st of December, the shortest day of the year. Then the days will start getting longer. In reality, it's just a minute...

I feel you. I live in and am from Texas, where this doesn't really happen. Even in winter it's sunny. But I spent two years in Ohio and I could barely stand it. Aside from the grey from November to May it seemed like, I felt like I could literally tell that the sun was further away than it is here. It was weird, off-putting, depressing. It didn't affect my (now ex) wife, but by December both years I was really worn down. It's not all psychological, this is an actual thing. Hang in there.

S.A.D.  seasonal affective disorder.  Not enough sun light.  I don't know how people in northern Canada dealing with 20+ hours of dark during the winter.

He died during my high school years, as I struggled to come to grips with my illness, my reality.  Always a part of me, never quite healed.

I was sober when I went to bed. The hamster just falls off...

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet...

As an American, I wonder if those outside the US judge us all by the actions of our President. I hope this is not the case. There are still many people in the US the respect free speech and diversity. Unity and equality.

cersei:
Your president is mad... but I know you're not all supporting him ;)

Thanks.  He is a bully that wants to be a dictator.  Everyday I become more ashamed.  

Still new to this. So I'm wondering how many people will see this, and how many will comment. My question: what hair coloring do people prefer? The obvious natural, blue, purple, green, pink, or multiple. Kate Winslet in titanic, meh. Kate Winslet in Eternal Sunshine and the Spotless Mind with blue hair, hot!
