A Sure Sign of Cabin Fever

The squirrels around here get a bit restless in winter. Per exemple:

I will decide who is worthy to view the XMAS 2005 pics.
Incidentally, using "xmas" is traitorous in view of the War on the War against Christmas. luser.

Hmmmmm. Was likely autonomic adherence to secular based enterprise naming policy.
Appropriate permissions applied. Have a smurfy day.

Perhaps it would be better if we could just go into cryogenic capsules for the duration. Unsurprisingly, this syndrome of winter ennui has its own acronym, SAD, which stands for
seasonal affective disorder. Symptoms?

  • regularly occurring symptoms of depression (excessive eating and sleeping,
    weight gain) during the fall or winter months.
  • full remission from depression occur in the spring and summer months.
  • symptoms have occurred in the past two years, with no nonseasonal
    depression episodes.
  • seasonal episodes substantially outnumber nonseasonal depression episodes.
  • a craving for sugary and/or starchy foods.
  • odd fits of attempts at levity, such as emailing each other snarky stuff
    from the some console. (I added that one)

The thinking is that our bodies are confused as to why we are going to and coming home from work in the dark―we never listen, do we? It is thought that this condition might be exacerbated by long periods of darkness. AHA!

Yesterday was (in Milwaukee, anyway) our 15th consecutive officially overcast day. Virtually no sun in about a half a month. This is a new record, breaking one from 1991, I think (Grandma's got the paper now, and it already took two trips to remember seasonal affected disorder, I'm not going back again).

Eerily, this timing coincides with the previous losing season for the Packers, the year they traded for a backup quarterback Brett Favre. This will give you an idea of just how thorough the local media is at inserting something about the Packers into every single story ever written.

The article mentioned that today and tomorrow are going to be the same sad story.

There's nary a cloud in the sky.

Gusto's ex-gf was diagnosed with SAD a couple winters ago. They gave her a placebo pill and the biggest lamp ever invented. Turns out, she was just crazy.

P.S. I like the Xmas powerpoint presentation.
