No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction at anytime.
There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction,
a blessed unrest keeps us marching and makes us more alive than others.

top ten happinesses this week

yeah, so i have had all this angst and pissy, pissy anger in the past couple of days. well, it stops here and now.

i'm going to list things that have happened in the past week that have made me happy (however fleeting the feeling might have been).

1. portable banquet on tuesday. jo3 told the story of how in a bar on-campus they had the theme song from hawaii 5-0 on the jukebox. whenever someone played it, jo3 and his friends would put chairs up on the bar in a line, and pretend to be paddling a big outrigger canoe while people threw beer on them. i laughed so hard people from other tables stared. this, plus i ordered the ahi sandwich very rare (and it came just perfect), so on the bill it said "ahi sandwich xxx rare". nothing like a little sex in your order.

2. my shoes. i didn't buy them this week, but i wore them. they are the best pair of shoes i've ever owned. bar none. doc martens. they are so fricking comfortable i can't even describe it. plus they're sturdy and practical, yet look good enough that i can wear them to work which slacks. never underestimate the importance of a good pair of shoes.

3. i ordered a copy of "the watchmen" off of ebay. last night i stayed in and read the whole thing by candlelight. i used to spend so much time in books. reading has been a comfort and refuge for me for most of my life. good story, candlelight, blue corn chips, pepsi. yeah, that's pretty nice.

4. i ordered six new cd's and because i put in the ani difranco one first, i have no idea what the others sound like. god, i love music. in particular, i love angry woman folk music where my jaw drops at the guitar playing and her voice goes from a sexy, bluesy growl to these crystal-clear soaring notes, and i'm sitting at my desk just grooving and to hell with what everyone walking by thinks of me. whew. music. amen.

5. for the third session in a row, rogal got the most votes, just for doing something stupid. don't ask. just accept that it made me happy.

6. already said it, but i guess it bears repeating, i've got some readers here.

7. K's voice.

8. i forget what eight is for.

9. instant messages in the middle of the day from SmartassGirl.

10. the sense of completion i get by making it to ten in this list. sue me.

have a great weekend, my chilluns. i'm going to try to do the same.
