Most Depressing day of the year?

Dear Sirs,

My name is Stephen I am a 4 year old golden retriever poodle cross. My mom was a golden retriever and my dad was a black poodle. Most people refer to me as a Goldendoodle but that term does not really inspire fear so I tend to avoid using it at all cost.

When I was 10 weeks old I went to live with my A and my R these are the people who feed me and take care of me. They are pretty nice most of the time but lately I have been getting a lot less attention since the swaddlepotimous moved in about 3 months ago. I have been writing letters to zoos and animal rescue leagues to try and find a home for the swaddlepotimous but unfortunately it is still living in my room. Perhaps one of your listeners might be able to provide a home. Sorry for the tangent it would be great if you could help find a home for the swaddlepotimous but that is not the reason for my writing you.

Anyway I am sure you are wondering why a dog is writing you. Well I do listen to your show not everyday but when I am on my way to daycare in the morning my A and I listen to you guys. Your show makes the ride go a lot quicker. One Monday Jan 25th you mentioned it was the “Most depressing day of the year”. I did not hear this particular show but I read the quote on my friend Drew’s blog. It is an interesting blog and you learn a lot about Drew and his family. I like to add comments to Drew’s blog but he has this weird compulsion that requires him to respond to every comment no matter how inane.

I asked Drew why Monday was the most depressing day and he was not sure but said I should ask you guys. I just don’t understand is this a global thing or a national thing? Personally I had a pretty good day on Monday so I am very confused. How can we know when the most depressing day of the year is going to be? It is only January we still have over 90% of the year to go what if something really depressing happens in July?

I am really curious how you guys came up with the 25th as the most depressing day. There were no mud slides or Earth quakes on the 25th. The weather was actually pretty nice, everyone I know was healthy and I got to take a walk with my A at lunch, so what made it depressing? My day was not really depressing at all, nothing like Jan 12th. I just don’t understand how you can make such a blanket about the collective consciousness of the human race. Perhaps there is more research into depression going on at WROR than I am aware of.

I would really appreciate it if you could share some more information regarding the most depressing day of the year with me. I would be happy to share the result or some of my weather experiments in return. I have been trying to create an indoor thunderstorm by filling my A’s bathroom with warm steam and then opening the door into the master bedroom which I have cooled to 20 degrees by opening all the windows.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.


P.S. would it be possible to get an autographed photo?

Would you feel any better knowing that sometime in the next year or so, the swaddlepotimous will be sharing their food with you by throwing it on the ground?

I assure you, when dinner rolls around, the swaddlepotimous seat is the one to be next to.

Thanks for the info on Cliff Arnall and the most depressing day of the year. I was orignally outraged when I heard about this concept this further information has only escalted my ire.

The fact that some company "Sky Travel" would create some stupid equasion to definte the level of depression is inane. Further it is even worse that they shopped it around to the academic community to see if anyone was willing to put their name on it. I guess it is not exactly plagarism but it is still not cool.

I may have to dedicate more resources to bring this to light

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started take up real income.
It gets down to select a correct partner who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
