09/08/2003 Entry: "I'm So Glad You're Happy."

On n'est jamais si malheureux qu'on croit, ni si heureux qu'on espere.
We are never as unhappy as we believe, or as happy as we hope.
Duc de la Rocherfoucauld

I could drop a load of anger and sadness here; I seem to have an inappropriately large share of it these past few days, carrying it in weights around my wrists and neck and tightly around my chest, infecting others with it wherever I go, or so it seems. But I've been holding back, trying not to vent my spleen in the Weblog. Instead I'll focus on some positives. How fucking Pollyanna is that?

  • Got a wonderful surprise when Jason called from the Bay Bridge. Welcome to your new home, friend.
  • I also got a phone message from Panchesco, thanking me for contributing to Team Linus (and mentioning that he's visiting soon: Yay!) You can help the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society too; click over there for sponsorship information.
  • Bet you didn't know that Sister Edith has a Posse. S'true, I seen'd it.
  • I always enjoy when William Ted posts, especially when his storyline includes a superhero in whiteface; but I'm also happy to pimp his new business site: Who's Your Psychic Daddy? It's funny, sexy, and cool—just like WT—and worth a visit even from the skeptics in the room.

But don't you worry. I'll save a slice of Spleen and Piss Pie for you. There's plenty to go around.

And did anything interesting happen on Sunday?

I'm assuming you read that happiness article in the New York Times. If you didn't, your quote is weirdly prescient.

I read the first few pages and am getting back to it. It was still a great synchronicity, though; I found the quote first, then found your link to the article. Should have given you link credit from the start.

SillyNun: I was trying not to go there.
