Ok, quick note even though I am still sick, but I had to write bout this.

A study done by the University of Warwick in England has proven that there is a direct but complex link between money and happiness. Andrew Oswald, a economist involved with the study says "There is overwhelming evidence that money buys happiness," .

All these years they were all full of it when they told us otherwise.


Be back as soon as I shake this dang cold......

Ok, so it all got a little much for me for a bit. But I'm one of those wierdos who have a tendency to not let things get them down for too long. I think it's just some kind of personality flaw. I don't know what you'd call it, maybe being fataly optomistic. I've been down in the dark before and have learned not to spend too much time there. My Mom has an MRi schedualed for a week from Monday to see how bad things are, I'll wait till that comes back before I let the bottom drop out of me.
As so often happenes when things get bad I have a tendency to retreat inside myself for a bit. I do my best to think happy thoughts. Not that there are that many to be had right now. I'm still hoping for the Yale job to call back. Either that or for me to win the lotto. I'm not sure which is less likely though. But I'll keep hoping. After all the interview went good. The guy was glad that I had lots of retail experiance, he said that what they need most is someone who is good at dealing with people.
Of course the first thing I see when I log on to AOL is the news that some congressman is calling for the draft to be reinstated. Guess that shows that the world isn't doing any better since I last looked. My suggestion is that if the war effort needs more bodies then we volenteer the congress themselves to go fight it. Would give them a whole new perspective I bet.
My friend Kells Bells has just gotten her first comp. I've gone up twice so far to help show her how to use it. I rememebr when I first got mine, I think my cuz was at my house more in those first 2 months than he had been in the past 2 years. I don't mind going though. It's kind of fun playing like I know what I'm doing. Also I get to show her all the fun little things, like customizing the sounds and look of the thing. Unfortunatly she's got dial up for now and it's frustrating her a bit on how slow it is. But as soon as she switches to cable it should be fine.
Speaking of that, I'm looking into going cable myself, since Comcast has this new deal of phone, cable comp, and TV for $100 a month for a year. Much cheaper than current combined crap. I still want to take a closer look at it, but I may just have to change my e-mail soon. I just wonder if we can keep our phone number. It' going ot be such a pain if I have to try and let everyone know we have changed our #. (Also, some of my old friends who are right now out of my life would have no way to get a hold of me anymore.).
Anyways, I'm off to go do some blog commenting, I've been slack since all this crap started. Hope everyone's doing good. Thanks for all the support (and the swearing too Chasm.).

Old Traditions Don't Die, They Just Fade Away

No time to do a real post so I'll do as BM requested and just post a quick Random 10. For those who wern't in on this old tradtion the idea is to just let your Computer play 10 songs at random from what you have on it and then post them, even if the songs might be embaressing. So here's mine for the night. I'll try to get back on after Wed with updates about how life is and to check out blogs. Forgive me for my being away, it's only for a little longer. Now without further ado, my Random 10:

1. Bank Job - Bare Naked Ladies
2. Charoits Rise - Lizzie West
3. Nights I Can't Remember, Friends I'll Never Forget - Toby Keith
4. Creep (Acustic) - Radiohead
5. I Don't Love You - My Chemical Romance
6. Run - Snow Patrol
7. Benny Hill Theme
8. Metalingus - Alter Bridge
9. Just Apathy - Tally Hall
10. Skin - Rascall Flats

and because I always used to do so here's my Extra 2:

1. The Worst Day Since Yesterday - Flogging Molly
2. Naked in the Backseat of Seal's Car - Bare Naked Ladies

(huh, both the opener and closer were by BNL. Go figure. )

Quick note

Sorry I haven't been blogging or commenting, life's been a little crazy. I'll try to be back on soon.
I have a job interview at Yale on Wed morn. It's been 10 months that I've been unemployed now. If your religious say a prayer, if your not then cross your fingers. I can use all the help I can get.
Hope everyone's doing ok.

Portrait of Azathoth

This is a picture of H.P. Lovecrafts (a horror writers from the 1920's) creation that he called Azathoth, The Blind Idiot God of Chaos. It was drawn by Uwe Jarling. Just thought I should have a shot of who I took my name after. Isn't he adorable?
