The skies are gray. The days are short. I'm far from home. There are a million things I'm forgetting. I'm behind with work, both work-type work and housework. I'm snarling and snapping at friends, saying and writing things I shouldn't. I'm being unreasonable. I want to stay curled up under the blankets.
If you're one of the dozen or two people I've pissed off in the last week or two, I'm really sorry.
Maybe I need to take a communication sabbatical and spend a few days sitting in front of a UV lamp and mainlining vitamin D.
