Why don't you move to Scotland? Or maybe Seattle?

From Oakland North:
While it seems as if summer skipped the Bay Area this year, on Monday Oakland got a taste of August heat. Temperatures climbed as high as 80 degrees from Bake Sale Betty’s to the Grand Lake Theater, and the warmth lingered into the evening. But don’t worry—a local weather expert says this mini heat wave is nothing to get hot and bothered about.
Don't worry? Don't worry? We're finally getting some warm weather after one of the chilliest, least-sunny summers on record, and you're complaining about it and wanting it to get cold again?

Hey, now. No dissing Seattle...

Brother, August in Seattle was one of the most beautiful things I remember.

But there's a reason people are shooting heroin, writing depressing music, and killing theyselves up there in Cascadia.

It's called February. I know, I was there. ;-)

Miss ya.

Oh, gosh, that wasn't meant as a dis — Seattle is gorgeous during August, September, and October. It's just the rest of the year that makes everybody depressed and wanting to shoot heroin and commit suicide. ;-)

And that crack was because Pirate and I have a friend who spent her junior year abroad in Scotland and fell in love with the climate. She moved to Seattle when she got back home because it was the closest she could get.

Mr. Darcy loved Ireland for much the same reason.

I've yet to turn to heroin, but it takes substantial booze and coffee to get me through late winter. (In all seriousness, I'm already experiencing seasonal effects, to the point that I think it's time to bite the bullet and get a lightbox.)

I've been wondering if it's time to break out the lightbox again (and get new bulbs for it, in the process), but then I came across a recommendation for this sunrise simulator that's sounding interesting. It's also a LOT cheaper than most therapeutic lightboxes.

Thank you! I have been looking for one of these for quite a while now. Memory suggests there was a brand called "Zen clocks" or some such but that search was fruitless.
