The above article was released by Time magazine, it’s all about a formula calculating America’s depression level and how the overall level of depression in America is at it’s peak on the third Monday of January. I thought that it was in bad taste for CNN to be running this as their overall headline last night, I mean, with it being Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day and everything. When I told Jaclyn, she said it all makes perfect sense because it is depressing that MLK was assassinated.
Speaking of depressing, I’ve watched two animal programs over the last couple of months that showed the dominant Guerrilla or Hippo attacking and killing infant males within their clans. They do this for two reasons:
A: it wipes out potential competition for the top spot, these babies won’t grow up and try to compete with them
B: it stops the women from attending to their babies and allows them to be available for procreating with the top male.
With all this being said, I’m far from depressed, there’s a bunch of really good things coming down the pike for me. I can’t reveal now, but January should yield some great news for Robert Deem.
This weekend, we made an impulse decision to visit New York City and meet up with Jaclyn’s friends, Kristin and Kyle Mehling. We had a great time and spent most of the day in Central Park and the Natural History Museum. There’s a million great places to eat in NYC, but we found a cool little restaurant called VYNL that had menus made from record covers. I had a seared tuna wrap sprinkled with a healthy amount of wasabi.
Sunday’s highlight was meeting up with Jen and Jay as we watched the Patriots mow down the helpless Chargers. Thank you Jen and Jay for letting Winston feed you Chex Mix and creating a big ol’ mess in your apartment.
Here’s a couple of pics from NYC:
