Well... apparently I killed something in the firewall last night... because my web site is dead. Server was up when I left this morning... sadly it's not letting in connections. poop. I'll fix it tonight. :D I really need to remember to ask someone on the outside of my firewall how things are working after I screw around with it.
(oh, and honestly... I hate it when I can't have my work cam on!... hate it.)
We went to bed suuuuper early last night... well, Suz went to be super early... and I went to bed at like... 12:00, which is super early for moi...
I was kinda computer burnt last night so I watched news... and the daily show... read a few pages of friends posts, and then crashed. :D
Today is a day made of cold. It's steel gray and bazzingly cold. Every atom of the air holds a hint of snow coming. I suspect the drive home will be a bit slower than the usual crawl. :)

Fear... is the currency of terrorists
Instability... is the currency of extremists
and Fear of Instability is the currency of fundamentalists.
Funny how organized religion is at the heart of all of that.
Can I just say...
Happiness is everything.
When you are looking for solutions to the things that are wrong...
take the extra few seconds to prioritize things around the notion of what will make you happy.
Certainly, if you're the kind of hedonistic, self centered fuck that extracts their happiness on the misery of others then you need counselling or a hand gun with a single bullet, but most people... most people are not like that...
Most people are like you and me... trying to get through the day, the week, the month and hold onto health, a job, family and make payments on bills. We're average people facing the really average challenges that people face. The thing is... being happy makes it a lot more fun.
I know there are several things in my life that are difficult and contribute the big black cloud that lives on the edge of reality... waiting...
However... I truly believe that making the choice to be happy ... to smile at the world and do things that make me happy...
... holds the clouds back and keep things in perspective.
Ok... so if "happiness is everything"... and if it's so normal to strive to hold on to your own happiness...
Then what about contributing to someone else's happiness.
Give a little yo.
