Project 365 Day 17: Cheerless


Eight days of clouds and rain have started to take their toll. Today I nearly refused to get out of bed. I struggled my way around the house and got my son off to school. Coffee didn’t even break the haze. Was I getting sick? Finally, I had made it to the SUV.

As I sat in my driveway today, I thought about how I didn’t want to go to work. Trying to boost my spirits, I began singing some Garbage. Shirley Manson has a way of raising my spirits.

Then I remembered my 365 Project. I loaded up the song I had been humming on my phone and smiled. Today may be OK.

So I put one hand on the steering wheel and the other on my phone and I started driving and taking pictures through the windshield.

Taking pictures with a cell phone is relatively easy on its own. With one hand it is a bit challenging. As a secondary task, heavily overridden by the need to control a 2000 lb piece of machinery moving at 50MPH or more, and the challenge arises. To be honest, I barely looked at the shots. Just kept taking them.

When I arrived at work I went through the collection and to my surprise, they came out good.

Now I can’t decide which picture I like most…….

I’m only happy when it rains
I’m only happy when it’s complicated
And though I know you can’t appreciate it
I’m only happy when it rains
You know I love it when the news is bad
Why it feels so good to feel so sad
I’m only happy when it rains

Pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me
Pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me

I’m only happy when it rains
I feel good when things are going wrong
I only listen to the sad, sad songs
I’m only happy when it rains

I only smile in the dark
My only comfort is the night gone black
I didn’t accidentally tell you that
I’m only happy when it rains
You’ll get the message by the time I’m through
When I complain about me and you
I’m only happy when it rains

Pour your misery down…pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me…pour your misery down
Pour your misery down…pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me…pour your misery down
Pour your misery down…pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me…pour your misery down
Pour your misery down…pour
You can keep me company
As long as you don’t care

I’m only happy when it rains
You want to hear about my new obsession
I’m riding high upon a deep depression
I’m only happy when it rains…pour some misery down on me
I’m only happy when it rains….pour some misery down on me
I’m only happy when it rains…pour some misery down on me
I’m only happy when it rains…pour some misery down on me
I’m only happy when it rains…pour some misery down on me…pour some misery down on me…pour some misery down on me…pour some misery down on me.
