According to the self-appointed "experts" among us, the Monday closest to January 24th is supposedly the most depressing day of the year, which would make today the "Blue Monday" of 2007. Blue Monday, as the story goes, is the perfect storm of (A) dreary weather, (B) the arrival of maxed-out Christmas credit card bills, (C) the realization you've blown your New Year's resolutions and (D) a marked lack of energy and motivation to do anything about it.
I'm not sure I buy into any of that, but just in case there's any truth to it, I thought I'd mark the occasion with a little contest. Who knows? Maybe it'll even pull you out of your Blue Monday funk.
Blue Monday: The Contest
I've tracked down every comic book character I can find with the word "blue" in their name and posted them below. Jot down as many names as you can, then click here to email them to me. Whoever gets all of the names correct, or whoever gets the most names correct before Friday, January 26th (whichever comes first), will win a free Super Powers T-shirt from my Secret Identity shop (click on the shirt to get a closer look at the design).
Good luck, and remember:
Have a Depressing Blue Monday!
