A Soul Made Cheerful

"There is one thing one has to have: either a soul that is cheerful by nature, or a soul made cheerful by work, love, art, and knowledge."

~Friedrich Nietzsche



Feelin' pretty good about things at the moment -- I suspect this is due in large part to the significant amounts of candy I've consumed over the course of the day.  It's hard to be down when you're unwrapping your twentieth Starburst.  Halloween wasn't overwhelming -- the party we attended on Friday was lame [such that we left after ten minutes!], but we did have nifty his-n-hers costumes.  We also had fun Saturday night, running back and forth to the front door, throwing candy into outstretched goody-bags to appease the marauding hordes.  Our neighborhood is quite popular; the little bandits clean us out every year.  That's fine with me -- it requires that I hit up the after-Halloween sales to replenish our candy stock.  Good times.

 

In other news, it's been beautiful outside; yesterday's marathon headache finally went away; I got a new crazy-red lipgloss; our football team's won two games in a row[!]; and considerable progress has been made with the Great Basset Hound Project, in which I've made coloring-book pages of the "Basset Brigade" for the Giggles For You website.
