Didn't think you were, don't worry. I was just bitching. Comes of the season, I suppose—the daylight this time of year is less than nine hours long at this latitude, which gets wearing even if you don't go outside much. Feeling achey and out-of-sorts from medication side effects doesn't help either.
Also, the high temperature here in the Podunk Valley today (the day just past, Thursday) was -5° F (that's ~ -20.5° C for the rest of the world), with winds gusting up to 38 mph (61 km/h), and popular stereotypes of Maine notwithstanding, that is... not typical. Not this early in the winter, anyway. Thanks to the miracle of hydrocarbons, it's a lot warmer in here, but still. There is a certain psychological weight to the knowledge that if you were sitting eight feet to the right of where you're sitting, on the other side of the living room wall, you'd be dead within an hour.
