6 Unimportant Things That Make Me Happy Meme.

A thousand years ago, Julia from A Piece Of My Mind set me the 6 unimportant things that make me happy meme.

I have been thinking about this since then, and cannot think of anything that makes me happy.  I can only think of the countless things that make me unhappy. It's not that I'm unhappy normally. I'm just a misanthropic curmudgeon.

However, if I were to encounter happiness tied to an unimportant event, the following may be some of them:

  1. When I sit down  at my office desk, and wonder if I remembered to turn off the cooker gas ring that morning, then remember I'm all electric. That makes me happy.
  2. When I wake up in the morning, and find that the men in the white coats who came to take me away was all a dream. That makes me so happy, I collect my breakfast tray from the slot in the door and enjoy it in peace.
  3.  When I look in the mirror with my right ear, and know that I am perfectly normal.

  4. When I watch re-runs of 'Lost In Space' and it reminds me of home.  That makes me happy.
  5. When I think of how people can overcome their troubles & sweep aside barriers to progress by using their inventive intellect. this makes me happy.
  6. When I lay down to sleep at night, and know that however fucked up this existence is, if we are nice to each other, and treat everyone with grace and understanding, we may come out the other end with our souls' intact.

The traffic will still be jammed up of course, it's just that we won't feel the need to pump our horns.

You might have seen Some Guy's Q-Tip-In-The-Ear video. It's enough to bring wax to your eye.

I'm glad I'm not the only one.

Julia, there is a sign above my front door. It says 'Welcome to the Asylum'.

It's on the inside.
