Welcome to February, worst month of the year. Think about it - this is the month where everyone gets sick of winter and spring is still too far away to think about, the biggest holiday is Valentine's Day (especially with Mardi Gras being in March this year), no good movies or video games come out, football ends, and hockey/basketball are in the doldrums of their respective seasons. At least February recognizes its own lameness and thus only has 28 days. Thank you, merciful February.
