the most miserable day of 2005
Be warned. The most miserable day of 2005 is nigh.
By using a complex mathematical formula, psychologist Cliff Arnalls has calculated that the misery is about to peak in four days' time. *gasp!* This was what he had to say, "Fading memories of Christmas, mounting festive debts, foul weather, failed New Year resolutions and the long, dark nights create the perfect mix for gloom."
While the long, dark nights don't apply to us tropical folk, we probably can relate to the many holidays in January and February, namely Hari Raya Haji, Thaipusam, Federal Territory Day, Chinese New Year, and Awal Muharram. Actually in our Malaysian context, I expect the most miserable day of 2005 to hit us sometime between end-Feb to early March.
