It's late December. Work is weird this time of year for many people. Those who have to do it are often hindered by their co-workers and clients who aren't working. Those who aren't working sometimes worry about everything they'll have to do when they get back. Basically, whether you're working or not, nothing's getting done.
Of course, these are merely rambling generalizations, but that's what leads me to my point: go bowling. Why not?
