One of the more depressing things to do around this time of the year is to go on-line and check the weather forecast for the week ahead: after being tired of twenty-below-zero temps there's nothing better than staring at -40 for the upcoming weekend. Life goes on anyways, and while out in some store I actually overheard the phrase "winter wonderland" from an omnipresent horrible holiday Muzac track. Surreal, but still, try not to bust out laughing in public at these ideas - makes for some funny looks.
