they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

sunrise, sunset

i just happened upon what is possibly the most depressing page on the internet. it's a tad bit ironic that it lives on one of my most favorite sites - the weather channel. but, i guess my most-visited site can't be all good all the time.

anyway, in planning an outdoor run for tonight, i wanted to see when the sun was supposed to set. i easiliy found the "Sunrise, Sunset" feature on the weather channel page and learned that the sun is supposed to say goodbye today at 5:28 p.m. "not bad," i thought to myself. "now that the shortest day of the year is long behind us, i can start looking forward to more sunlight, more vitamin E and more warm, fuzzy feelings." that's when i saw the rest of the information provided in this segment. it read: hours of daylight remaining 1 hour 44 minutes.

talk about depressing.
a clock ticking down to darkness. to when the earth is cloaked in black. to when it's not safe to run without reflective gear. to when things appear distorted and colder and empty.

    If that is your most depressing internet site to you then your life is pretty good. We should all be so lucky as to have the weather page the most depressing thing of the day.
