And there WERE cookies!
Would you like to see some interesting statistics? And by “interesting”, I of course mean “soul-crushing”.
• Wettest April in 12 years at Midway Airport, 6th wettest since record began there in 1928
• Month on track to become Chicago’s cloudiest of the past 118 years
• April’s produced the most measurable rain days in a half century; month ranks 17th wettest in 140 years
All of these are from Tom Skilling’s blog. Why do I read it? Clearly I’m a masochist.
Anyway, I’ve been pretty down lately. This weather is killing me slowly, and it’s starting to creep into my food choices. I shouldn’t have had a cocktail and TWO whiskeys on Tuesday. I shouldn’t have eaten three pieces of that pizza when two pieces were plenty. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not really getting down on myself. But we had Potbelly for lunch, and a less depressed Sarah would have skipped the Sun Chips, which I didn’t want, which weren’t even satisfying, which actually usually offend me because they fool you into thinking they’re healthier than Doritos, when they’re not.
Still, it could have been worse. And the weather will improve, and I can always do better tomorrow. It’s hard to keep those things in mind, though, when I’ve just been in such a gray and miserable mood for what seems like forever.
Anyway, I’ve had a few things on my mind that I’ve been wanting to make comics about, but for whatever reason, they’re not quite coming (I blame the weather. J’accuse!), so I will leave you with this inspiring but NSFW comic, from a
Carleton College Penn State student named Ashley Avard.
