I confess this weather is killing me. I can't wake up in the mornings. I am a zombie at work. The endless grey skies and grey days just blend into a concrete coloured nightmare. I'll try and do a lunchtime workout and it temporarily lifts my energy. But then I slip into grey blahness on the commute home in my bulky coat and winter boots. Get me the eff to California, or Thailand or the Gold Coast. I look at swimsuit pictures, flower farm pictures, beach pictures and dream of colour and warmth again. Obviously I'm not a good Canadian. I don't even want to drink; I just want to shed my itchy bulky winter clothes and lie on a sun-warmed rock with lizards and listen to the wind rustle through the trees. This is probably the most grossest February ever.
