Some Nerd Tracked His Drinking For A Full Year

Music Monday – “When your day is long/And the night, the night is yours alone/When you’re sure you’ve had enough/Of this life, well hang on”

Today is “Blue Monday”, allegedly the saddest day of the year due to a mix of distance from Christmas, weather and credit cards coming due (although it’s actually just a random day picked to help sell winter vacations.)
