Just Lovely.

This has been an interminable, depressing day.  Just one little thing after another.

The latest crap o' the day is the news that Boeing won the air tanker contract.  

I don't know all the ins and outs of the story-- and honestly, I just don't care.  (Every now and then, you're allowed to want what would be best for your area, regardless of almost anything else.)  What I do know is that when EADS was awarded the deal last time (a few years ago), Boeing kicked up a fuss and got the whole bidding process started all over again, and now that they've won, our local economy will suffer.  I can't say I'm surprised, though, the world being what it is. 

In conclusion, I can't decide between a sigh or an angry "grr".  Take your pick. ;o)

To add insult to injury, I feel fat and failure-at-life-y today.  *is depressed*

(...I hope I'm not turning into one of those people who are always down in the dumps when the weather is grey.)
