Actually, neither it (the weather - or at least not this afternoon) nor I are that gloomy. In fact, I'm generally cheerful. I've had a couple of good pieces of news (work-related) in the last week, I've got a paper finished today for a conference next week, and I feel quite serene about some bothersome bits in other areas of my life.
And today, I got the flights booked for a trip later in the year for both of us, about which I am very excited.
But who can resist a good bit of graffiti?
