there’s no blue monday in this department sir

the only blue is the sky above cause we’re covered in sunshine here

and here

Who leaves those big footprints? I wish I could walk on water. I should go to the island soon.

I was thinking I missed the beach and the sunshine so I went to the urban beach, sat in a muskoka chair and felt the sun on my face. I kicked around some snow, found the sand below and even only if for a minute, I was reminded of summer.

Did you know there’s actually a formula for ‘why’ today is the ‘ most depressing day of the year‘. Crazy talk. I always thought it was some time in February but maybe that’s high suicide day or something. According to a press release by a mental health charity, the formula is:

\frac{[W + D-d] T^Q}{M N_a}

where weather=W, debt=d, time since Christmas=T, time since failing our new year’s resolutions=Q, low motivational levels=M and the feeling of a need to take action=Na. ‘D’ is not defined in the release, nor are units.


Have fun with it.

Go exploring

But dress warm. Nobody likes a whiner.

You never know what you might find.  Hopefully it’s beauty in something 🙂

Hey, Red row boat your cuzzy Red Canoe is my neighbour. You look chilly sitting there.

Read this nice article in the Toronto Star that is part of an essay called Lessons Travel Has Taught Me by Arthur Frommer. Thought it was worth sharing with you. It was a nice read, these are the main things travel has taught him:

We are all alike.
We are responsible for one another.
There is no single solution for human problems.
All people should be “minorities”.
Travel keeps us young.
Travel teaches us humility, the best human trait.

In other news, Marilyn was hanging out with The Mustache this morning. Omg so jealous! He was charming. He also leaked that he ‘might’ get back with Nikki. They are good together really. He said the cast isn’t really friends either because they change so often. There’s been heaps of people pass through there in his long career (and my loooooong time watching) of the Y&R. Oh gawd I love him.

Hope you are enjoying the day. This song always cheers me up. Been falling back in love with Devendra lately. I had a huge one for him a couple years back. His songs are so free spirited and pleasant to listen to. I love that he’s such a hippy, obviously.

    During the summer there was a huge group of hobos living under there [they even had a bed etc] so my friends & I came up with our own adventure story about them. The guy w/ the captain hat was Captain Hobo & the red boat was the Hobo Yacht & they were basically modern day pirates.
    They got kicked out due to the G20.

      Oh wow. I didn’t know that! I bet that story would be a cute cartoon. Downtown pirates. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Actually suicide rates are highest in the summer. Everyone thinks it’s in the winter but it’s the summer.
