Today’s word is lugubrious.

It nicely sums up the way I am feeling at the moment.

I had a rough night and didn’t get to sleep until dawn.  Then a delivery arrived early and got me out of bed after only a couple of hours.

Not a good start.

I decided to cheer myself by trawling the day’s headlines.

Big mistake.

It was the usual clatter of murders, deaths, gang warfare and probably the most depressing – the Golden Globe Awards – a celebration of the banal by the braindead.  Not one cheerful item.  Not even one politician squashed by a double decker bus.

Then the thought struck me that maybe this is Blue Monday?

It isn’t.  I have that to look forward to next week.

Now it has started to snow.


Your mission for today is to cheer me up.

    • Well…….  Let's just say it hasn't increased the lugubriosity.  Mind you, I'm cheered that that last word just fucked up my spell check?!

    • Hah!  Thanks David.

      "What motivated him to throw a puppy at the Hell's Angels is currently unclear," a police spokesman said.

      I love it!!
