Mishaps, Delightful Indulgences and Prozac

1. Strolling into a yet empty office, I tried to switch my computer on, but horror of all horrors, it was already on! To add to my distress, all my mailboxes were open still. Oh, woe is me if any straying eyes read personal mail. But at least the computer locks itself after a while, so there is that slight sense of comforting relief. And as for my white and grey matter upstairs, it seems to be still on holiday.

2. Saturday morning, I opened my eyes only to feel the heat hovering on me like a warm wet blanket. My mouth was already parched and this was before I got out of bed. Feeling viciously indulgent, I decided that a breakfast out of the norm would pick up my spirits so I dashed to the freezer for decadent chocolate ice cream and the coolness of sweet, pink watermelon. The upliftment lasted a full five minutes...

3. The mid January blues have kicked in. Suddenly, everything seems like a monstrous mammoth task that is impossible to accomplish. Being down makes everything seem too high to reach. Quarter life crisis maybe...what the hell, Prozac beckons! Now that is the up side of depression.
