Feeling Blah

I've been feeling a bit blah today. Probably because it was Monday and grey and raining this morning with a fog so thick, you could cut it with a knife. Luckily, it's still pretty mild and it was rain, not snow, so really, every grey cloud does have its silver lining, doesn't it?

Luckily, I have just the book for this kind of mood. It's called "The Blah", written by Jack Kent in 1970. (http://http//
I picked it up at an auction about ten days ago, along with several other children's books, some old magazines and road maps, a french language Vogue beauty book, a rather unusual volume called "Hair: Sex Society Symbolism" and a 2478 page dictionary that I can hardly lift (what did I expect, it is unabridged after all).

Said dictionary describes the blahs as "a feeling of physical uneasiness, general discomfort, or mild depression; malaise; after the long weekend, many workers had the Monday morning blahs." Exactly right.
