We're nearly a week past New Year's Day, but there's another day of importance lurking just after the start of 2014: Blue Monday, or in this instance, January 6, deemed to be the most depressing day of the year as it marks the return to work after the holidays.
Researchers found that Tweets at this time of the month were more likely to express guilt about giving up their New Year's resolutions, while drinks company Upbeat found complaints about the weather were also likely to increase.
But despite the odds not being in our favor, we've found a surefire way to beat the dread that allegedly accompanies this day: Pets! And below, we share that strategy with you.

Kathy Griffin has been needling Anderson Cooper on New Year's Eve for years now, and it sounds like they'll be ringing in 2014 for CNN much the same way – with one potential difference.
"@kathygriffin just sent me this photo of her outfit for New Year's Eve. She's kidding, right? Please tell me she is," the journalist amusingly Tweeted Monday.
The photo shows Griffin naked from the waist up, her hands gleefully thrown up in the air. (Don't worry – or get your hopes up: Her back's to the camera in the photos, so there's not much to see.)

Let's face it, by mid-2014 (assuming Anchorman 2 does well enough), Ron Burgundy will likely be an actual news anchor, and this video will seem less funny in retrospect as Will Ferrell disappears from reality, subsumed by his most hirsute creation.
Until then, though, it's hilarious. Funny or Die gathered Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer and Chris Cuomo (all of whom apparently have history with Ron) to discuss Burgundy's journalistic abilities, integrity and lack thereof.

Charles Ramsey lived right next door to the Cleveland house where Ariel Castro allegedly kept three women captive for up to a decade, but all he saw day after day were two little girls he assumed were Castro's grandchildren playing in the backyard.
But as the world now knows, that changed this week when he rescued the kidnapped Amanda Berry.
As Ramsey told CNN's Anderson Cooper on AC360 Tuesday night that he "heard that girl scream and saw [a neighbor] run across the street, and I went outside and wondered what he was doing, and ... Amanda said, 'I'm stuck in here, help get me out.' "
Ramsey continued: "So here I come with my, you know, half-eaten Big Mac, and I looked and I said, 'Well, what's up?' And she's like, I've been trapped in here, he won't let me out, me and my baby. I said, 'Well, we ain't going to talk no more, come on."

Who's that lady?
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo's Mama June dramatically dressed up her newly slimmer bod Saturday at the GLAAD Awards, where her show was nominated for best reality series.
Mom to Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, June Shannon, 33, looked chic and sophisticated (or as she'd put it, "smexy!") in a black wrap dress, plenty of jewelry and tasteful makeup.

Anderson Cooper can see once again after a temporary – and painful – bout of blindness.
Cooper posted a picture of himself on Instagram Tuesday sporting a white gauze patch over his right eye. "Temporarily blinded last week while on assignment," he said. "UV light bouncing off water. Much better now. Details today on #andersonlive."
On Anderson Cooper Live, he explained how he went blind over the weekend while filming a story for 60 Minutes on the coast of Portugal.
"I wake up in the middle of the night and it feels like my eyes are on fire," he said. "It turns out I have sunburned my eyeballs and I go blind. I went blind for 36 hours. I took this picture of me after I went to the hospital."
