Doldrums

Football is over with the attendant over-hype and over-reaction. Sorry pundits, Manning is not now a bum.  He did not lose the game. The Broncos sure did though. Manning certainly contributed, but I did not see number 18 on special teams, and he certainly did not give up 43 points on defense. I am not a basketball fan, and while pitchers and catchers report next week, meaningful baseball is still six weeks away. I do not have much expectation the Cubs will be much fun to watch again this year.

More winter weather is slated for the next ten days -- snow, subzero temps, followed by snow and more subzero temps. Winter lingers.  I long to sit in my backyard, sipping a beer and herfing a fine stogie lovingly rolled between the thighs of a Caribbean beauty queen.

It is the same old, same old in politics as assholes on both sides of the aisle conspire to usurp more and more of your freedoms. The Who had it right, Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Every politician at every level is determined to pass more laws, to impose more regulation.

Is it lack of exercise, the cold, the low grey clouds that routinely fill the skies that leave me depressed? Is it a post-holiday let down? No Colts on Sunday? Lack of nookie? The ponderous use of sentence fragments in this paragraph? I am tired of boredom-induced snacking. I curse my heavy boots every time I lace them to wade the snow and slush. I long to wear shorts and tee shirts. Mostly, I am sick of whining about stuff in this post. I suspect you are weary of it as well.

Shorts and T-shirts are working fine out here, though, it was a mild low 50's this morning, that I felt the need to put on a light jacket to run the boy to school.

It's February in Indiana. That means it's Whining Month. I'd be right there with ya. But I'm not. Let the hating begin. ;)

I'll be spending most of February in the nation's crapital, which will undoubtedly be more pleasant than Indy, weather wise. On the other hand, blizzards tend to follow me...

Fuzzy, your life is worse than mine. A week in DC sucks the life from you, forget a month.

Joe,

I lived there for a year. Talk about life-sucking.
