"Blue Monday"

Some psychologist in England decided that, because of unpaid Christmas bills, nasty weather, and failed New Year's resolutions, today was supposed to be the gloomiest day of the year. I read the story this morning, but knew that today wouldn't be gloomy for me, because a new episode of Heroes was going to be on tonight, and the almost two month hiatus was going to be over!

Unfortunately, it turned out to be the lamest episode of Heroes ever -- basically just a "reset" of all the storylines and some recaps to allow people who hadn't seen the first half of the season to catch up. Luckily, the day was essentially over by the time the episode finished, so I didn't have time to feel gloomy. (Plus, I got an E-mail from an old buddy who had found me through this blog, so I ended the day feeling pretty good.)

As much as I wanted to watch Heroes, I opted to tape it and watch 24 instead. Sounds like it was a wise choice, based on your review. I hate that they put Heroes opposite 24, but Jack Bauer will always win out as far as I'm concerned.
On the downside, when I went to the other TV to check the status of the VCR that was supposed to be recording Heroes, I saw the tape had ejected itself somewhere midway. Oops. I guess I'll catch it on one of the multiple reruns...

ATTN: bubblehead

here is something to consider offering to your readers

1) ask them how they presently feel


2) ask them to read the article about "Blue Monday"

and then

3) ask them how they now feel

but here is an even better experiment

a) ask your readers to quantify the likelyhood of Pres. Bush's SoTU speech making a difference


b) ask the same question after hearing the SoTU
