It's pretty damn good.  I added the only critique I have, except that maybe the sentences are a tad choppy.

Run on sentences are bad.  Choppy is worse, it fatigues the reader.

If you have to err, err on the side of long sentences.

I don't get it.

I really don't.

I mean...  I'm seeing a new guy, well, shit, it's been over six months, now, and it still feels new.  Things are awesome... 

Got a new job...  Temp position, and the commute sucks, but there's a chance that it'll be a permanent position paying darn near what I'm actually worth.  (Though I'm getting the vibe that it may not turn out...  Sucky commute makes that almost okay, actually.)

Why to I keep dropping back into being depressed?  Shut yourself in the apartment, turn out the lights, curl up in a ball on the couch, and just stare at the shadows on the wall depressed?

I keep catching myself dragging up all the shit with the NYEX and re-analyzing it... which is pretty fucking worthless, and I KNOW this (both him, and the re-hashing of the shitstorm).

I like the Luna one. She is a good one.

Im at the pour house in back bay having a beer.

Why?

Cuz i havent been here in ages and i dont feel like shit today. Today i feel like having a drink because it would be fun to go to an old haunt and get a bit o the nostalgia. Not because i feel like being numb.

This is a good thing.

I have a bottle of Crabbie's Ginger Beer here, at home.  I have already given Suu whatfor for not telling me about this stuff.

You Britspags who've been keeping this to yourselves?  Fuck each and every last one of you.  Sideways, and pointy ends first.

I LOVE this shit.

To be fair we withheld an american beer from them that one of them said was surprisingly good. I dont know which non north american here posted it or when exactly it was but i do remember roger saying "thats not for you. Give it back." or maybe it was dok. Or it couldve been suu. Or all three.

Hmmm... any chance it's related to seasonal affective disorder?

Oh good! Any preliminary results?

Possible, I suppose...  I mean, for the past couple years, I had REASONS to be depressed around the holidays.  Last year, I was living alone, trying to decide if I was going to barricade myself in or inflict my miserable ass on my friends.  The year before that, I was preparing to walk away from my marriage.  And for years before that, it was sitting around the house with my husband, pretending to appreciate the pile of gifts that barely scored "meh" on the wow scale.  (Note:  It's not that they weren't expensive, or anything...  It's that it usually looked like he'd jogged down the aisle with a cart, knocking random shit into it.)

Hrm.  May have found part of the problem, there.
