A random thought about happiness.

Happiness is a little like fire. If you're very lucky, you might happen upon something that is already burning, like a lightning-struck tree, but mostly, you have to learn to make it yourself from what you have on hand.

Ummm... what? I know it's not what you meant, but... egad.

Any analogy or metaphor carries the potential for being carried too far.

Just remember: you started this....

Your "wanker" icon reminded me of a quote I once heard about happiness:

"Happiness is like jam: you can't spread even a little of it without getting some on yourself."

When I need to feel happy, I think of Cat from Red Dwarf. Usually that works.
And then the song "I'm going to eat you little fishies" gets stuck in my head.

oh my god, do you ever.

If you're not careful, you could write a best-selling self-help book about this. You would have to put something about MacGeyver in the title.

Well said. Ahh, the power of positive thinking. :) RE: My blog - I wanted to clarify that I don't think all atheists are elitists, or that all religious people are philistines. I just don't like to see either of those demographics scorning the other for its beliefs.
