Wow - the sun is in the sky, and it has actualy elevation.
I think my moods tend to be affected somewhat by a mild case of seasonal affective disorder. Or to put it differently, I find living in London in December a living hell (and found the same to be true in Heidelberg). I think there's some maximum latitude I can live at during the winter months, and it's somewhat south of the 8-hours-of-sun-per-day level.
Finland is right out.
Got to enjoy a nice game of American football on the super-sized HDTV last night. The Seahawks failed to put away the 49ers while they were dominating and, as happens so many times, a team that's been allowed to stick around for three quarters finally figures out how to move the ball in the fourth and sneaks away with a victory.
