|Hello, Amy? I'm blue without you.|
Much like Valentine's Day, Blue Monday is total bull shit. Nevertheless, the media likes to report on it each year as if it's not total bull shit. The theory that this is the most depressing day of the year is based on a mathematical equation that makes as much sense as this one I just made up:
(Amy Bickers + George Clooney) x Numerous tropical vacations - Stacy Keibler = World Peace and Happiness for Everyone in the Whole Wide World
Never mind. My equation makes total sense.
|Side note: Psych returns in February. Set your DVR, fools.|
In honor of Blue Monday, I'm going to share with you my "Sorry for Myself" playlist. I created it more than two years ago. According to iTunes, I have listened to the songs on this playlist more than 100 times during the last two years. I honestly thought it would have been more.
Hit "play" and let's get to boo-hooing.
Just remember that tomorrow is Cranberry Red Tuesday. Yes, I just made that up. I can do that because I once took a psychology class. Also, cranberry red matches the color on this excellent image of Ludacris.
On Cranberry Red Tuesday, you must get the hell out of bed and get busy living. Then order a copy of my book: Get Busy Livin' or Get Busy Dying: Your Guide to Being Blissfully Happy While Stealing Quotes From Morgan Freeman Movies.
Today is still Blue Monday, though, so feel free to moan and groan and harmonize with Joni Mitchell to your pitiful heart's delight. Enjoy!
