Happy Most Depressing Day Of The Year Day!!!!




January 24th is the most depressing day of the year. It's true. They said so on Good Morning America. According to statistics everyone is depressed this day every year. The holidays are over, taxes need filed, Holiday bills are showing up at your door. That's why you should be depressed today. So just in case you woke up feeling happy (the fact that it's sunny and in headed toward the 40's this morning made me smile) STOP IT! Get with the spirit of the day and get depressed!!!!!

What an interesting way to start out your day. Just you, a cup of coffee and the ever-enthusiastic-about- anything-Good Morning America team telling you to get good and depressed. They reiterated about 6 times in the 10 minutes I watched it. Then they would say, "Not that we WANT anyone to get depressed if they were already in a good mood!" Wonder how they did in the ratings.

So break out your best black outfit and dress like you're on your way to a wake. Because that's what January 24th is all about. (Hmmm..... that's the attire I used to reserve for Valentine's Day before I met my husband. Glad I saved it!)

Happy Depressing Day everyone!

No problem. Glad I could spread the Holiday cheer (or is that REMOVE the cheer for this particular holiday). Wonder if Halmark will jump on this one!

Thanks for taking me out on the town tonight! It's been a while. I guess that was my first Most Depressing Day of the Year date!

Don't tell my husband ;)

I was unusually tired yesterday -- interesting.

I wish I would have watched that! I think the other shows (caught it on the Daily Buzz when I turned the channel) were making fun of Good Morning America for making such a production of it. That must have been good on Cobert!

And for the record... yesterday, I am ashamed to admit, I was not depressed. Today however, with the tons of snow and staying up all night with Anna, I am a little down. Always a day late and a dollar short!

Ahhhh....you tricked me!

Though I did have an idea you weren't reall Shannon D. At least I was hoping you weren't. She's got stalking potential!

I was in a really good mood until I read this post then I wanted to go and throw myself off something :P
But I won't because I know that your day would be alot more depressing so I will refrain from this hehe.

You're too late anyway Gareth! Most Depressing Day of the Year was YESTERDAY. You missed it! So save all your festive plans of depression inspired activities for next Jan 24th!!!!!

Oh and Princess P- Perhaps you should find a pic of Shannon D PUNCHING a cat or a gizmo! From what I've seen on E THS she's just the type to abuse animals (and gizmos...I used to have one of those, btw. It was from an ex so I gave it to my neice when we broke up. She got rid of it later. Wish I would have held onto that one!)

Oh heck I already jumped, geesh. Doctor, is there a doctor in the house. Yes hello doctor I have major internal bleeding, a broken spine and pelvis and I think I twisted my ankle. Patch me up again so I can go hop on a plane and have a few strict words with someone ;)
