I've got it. We have been enduring a prolonged period of below normal temperatures in these parts for weeks on end. Today there was a promise of moderation and I was actually looking forward to crawling under the cars to change the oil - looking forward to it! But the temp outside has peaked a 12F. I am not crawling under the car today.
I think my little 3 day jaunt to Arizona a couple of weeks ago has only made it worse. I can't stand my family, my dog or myself right now. The NFL season is over and college hockey only plays on Friday and Saturday nights - in other words sports offers no distraction. I walked like a zombie through Hollywood Video and found nothing even remotely interesting. Cable TV is as dull as the day is long. And politics, now that The Nancy and Harry Show is on 24/7, is like watching Sesame Street for adults only more boring.
Cabin Fever! Aaaahhhh!!!!!
Give me my Global Warming, NOW!!!!!!!
