The Meltdown

Doodles and I tried one last sledding run this weekend. We made it half way down the hill and just stopped. Winter’s finally seeming to leave. And are we going to get misty eyed and miss it? Probably not, no. Yet, I always have to remember this feeling when it’s a humid 90 in August. You know SAD? I tend to have GIGSS – Grass Is Greener Seasonal Syndrome.

Actually the only season which seems too long here is Winter. Autumn, Spring, Summer, all seem to fly by briefly. It’s really only Jan/Feb/Mar which tend to drag on in memory. That said, we’re about to Spring ahead.

Embrace Winter one last time if you can. Go skiing up north. Do whatever you said you would this season, if you still can. If not, it’s okay, it’ll be here again before you know it.

Sure, now I’ve probably jinxed it. Like Prince sang, sometimes it snows in April.

What about you? Do you get SAD or GIGSS?

Change the equation

…along with catching up on the big films (oscar noms on groundhog day), i’ve also hibernated myself into the shows Breaking Bad and Battlestar Galactica. Last winter it was The Wire. I love a good series with a seriously strong arc you can ride through to completion. And when you wait long enough, you can enjoy quite a bit at once with little waiting. I’m a few episodes from the end of season 2 of Breaking Bad.

Weeds + The Wire + Dexter = Breaking Bad

And I am just getting going on BSG, but am fascinated already. I think sometime after that I will try Friday Night Lights. What else should I put in the queue?

Sure, I have to get the taxes done, renew my license at the DMV, find a bigger boat for B&B, read twice as many books, exercise, etc. But it’s comforting to have another episode of the story waiting for you to come back to.

Oh the hibernating we’re doing! SAD seems to be affecting all of us.

Dad, I want it to be Winter only for three days and snow…
And then I want it to be summer again.
When is it going to be sunny?

When, indeed.

Are you suffering from SAD? Are you hibernating? Do you catch up on the great series on DVD/DVR/on-line?
