January- The Most Depressing Month of the Year!

What a week. First Bowie, then Rickman.

It's January. Nothing good ever seems to happen in January. Dreary and wet. I guess we're lucky it isn't colder or we'd be fighting snow, and I don't want that, either. I used to love snow, and I think I still would if it meant I got the day off and didn't have to go out in it. Why don't adults get snow days?!

And all anyone wants to talk about is politics. I used to be very politically minded until I realized I was having anger issues and traced it back to that, so I pulled back. Except, between the internet, my husband and my cousin (who I work with), it's a constantly discussed issue. I'm not saying I don't want to keep up on the issues, because I do. But my poor psyche can only take so much.  It's going to be a long 11 months.

And everything is breaking down. We had to replace the car battery, the shocks are going out (appointment to take care of that tomorrow), got a rock chip in the front window we had to repair, we need new tires,  the oven heat element broke, the dryer is making a funny squeal, strong winds pulled off some of our shingles, and none of us are working quite as much. I could go on, but maybe I've whinged enough for one day!

On the upside, my muse, my inspiration for everything creative, Noel Fielding, has been in the US doing some publicity stuff for his upcoming tour. (and I get to go see him in Chicago in March--still squeeing!--the only light in these otherwise dark days at the moment!)  He's a huge Bowie fan, so that has come up in every interview. And Tumblr has been a very strange place this week because of all of it. But there are new pictures and new videos. They'll help me hold on until spring!

My birthday is in January. That's something good. =)

Since I could vote I decided to call politics a 'Spectator Sport'.
Stay warm and cozy!

Well, Bob, there is something good in January, after all! (I think I just need longer days and more sun!)
