The Only Car I Drive

"UB Jesus" from David Byrne's Look Into the Eyeball

In celebration of those of you who do that Lent thing and those of us in our 40 days post White Tantric meditations.

Why, yes...

You Belong in Dublin
Friendly and down to earth, you want to enjoy Europe without snobbery or pretensions.
You're the perfect person to go wild on a pub crawl... or enjoy a quiet bike ride through the old part of town.
What European City Do You Belong In?

Yesterday, in the momentary excitement of something I had previously struggled with suddenly working, I decided to keep an “Unexpected Joy” list. In my brief euphoria, I told myself that I should spend as much time appreciating the unexpected pleasures as I do bitching about the unexpected troubles. I should focus on the setfronts of life rather than the setbacks.
A minute after typing, “I entered my timesheet in the new system on the first try,” the new system crashed and I lost my timesheet. I redid it four times that morning and summarily deleted my Unexpected Joy list.
I’m so trying to have a good attitude. I can hear myself faking it in conversations, hoping I’ll make it stick internally. I can hear myself telling all my friends the right things in terms of their attitudes (a recent JSD post comes to mind), and then wishing I would listen to myself. I’m doing my best really. It’s just the stupid timesheet system didn’t work again!
This morning I saw a link “What is Happiness Anyway” and clicked. Apparently the universe thought I needed a little help in the attitude readjustment zone. You’ll see I have a new link called The Happiness Project. I recommend you check it out. It’s written by a woman with a good attitude and that’s always a good thing.
