Gloomy Thursday

It should be raining.

It feels like it should be coming down in buckets outside, but it’s not. It’s too damn warm for December; while the rest of the county is snowing or at least nippy, I’m battling mosquitos on my lunch break.

Maybe that’s it: the weather. Last night it was very cold for us here, today it’s too warm. That rollercoaster-weather… maybe that’s why I feel so down today. Work is too busy, so much noise that feels like it’s intruding into this weird need, this craving for quiet, comfort. Yesterday was just a tired day. Today, it’s depression.

I don’t want to come across as some whiny emo-kid here. I’m not. I’ve been happy lately, but today is bad. Maybe it is the weather. Or maybe it’s the post-holiday blues. Maybe it’s this job: it’s easy and I have access to a computer all day, sure… but on the other hand, talking to 100+ miserable and mean-spirited people all day gets a bit old and soul-sucking at times.

Anyway, had a good Christmas, got cool stuff, haven’t finished writing the book yet, blah blah blah…

Later.

Happy Holiday Wishes (and bad lip-synching) To All

As this will probably be the last post until after Christmas, I just want to wish everyone out there the happiest of holidays this year.

And, since nothing says “Happy Holidays” more than ridiculously lip-synched performances, here’s some holiday silliness from me and mine to you and yours:

“Fairytale of New York” by The Pogues

“(Ding Dong) Christmas Song” by Gunther, a man who seems to be a Saturday Night Live sketch come to life.

The Cipher: Micro-Hero!

Following hot on the heels of my Challenger Storm micro-hero, here’s my second character: The Cipher:

I can’t help it… these little buggers are addictive.
