"Eat Well, Stay Fit, Die Anyway"

If I Were a Druid, I’d be Partying Right Now

For many of you, today is a joyous day to which you have been looking forward for months now. Not for me. Today is a day of quiet resignation to the circumstances in which I find myself. You see, this afternoon at 2:06pm EDT (that’s 6:06 GMT), the earth will experience the summer solstice, bringing on the most loved of seasons… well, loved by everyone but me.

The summer solstice is the moment when, due to the tilt of the earth, the sun is furthest north from the equator. That makes today the longest day of the year for the northern hemisphere. What on earth could we do with a whole evening of clear daylight? Hmmmm…

Shameless plugs and gripes aside, I haven’t been minding the warm weather as much this year, but I should probably stay prepared. Something tells me that the worst is yet to come.
