I tried just now to settle in here while my daughter watched the meddling kids stop another ersatz ghost from getting away with it so I could counteract last week's Dismal etc thread by writing a Good, Jolly, Hap-Hap-Happy topic about myself, but after listing the third nice thing about my life it sounded like I was bragging.

Sigh, when cynicism sounds more forgivable than rejoicing, it makes you see this really is the devil's world, innit?

Abridged version:

I was born in the United States, which instantly makes me extremely lucky, and I have Irish DNA, which means I am predisposed to particularly appreciate words and alcohol, so somehow having skipped the fondness for alcohol (yuck) I am clearly deeply blessed. Though I mildly knock Ireland, it is a beautiful country and I am proud to be a citizen there as well as to be an American.

I had parents who loved me and took good care of me. Not everyone was that lucky, I know.

Though I had no siblings I had an extended family full of good and interesting people, and when push came to shove, we usually did look out for one another at the worst.

I am not poor, I have a pool and a car and a house and a woods.

I have known what falling in love feels like, and I know what being loved back is like.

I received a quality education (and still learned much), I have traveled, I have achieved many of my dreams, I still have one grandparent left even though I am almost forty.

I have cheated death several times, once violent death where the odds of survival were long. It was so improbable that the man I was with and I walked away unharmed as we did that day that in the midst of my twenty-something agnosticism I paused to wonder if there was a God, and God wanted either him or me to stay alive for a reason.

I have good friends, I have a loving dog, I have a spouse who understands me and chooses to live with me anyway, I was born at a time when movies and books are available, space is being explored, friends around the world can be easily made, and mostly people don't stink.

I've known relative peace and political stability, seen amazing world events, and dwell in a civilization that lets women be other than a man's property.

I think despite my many personal flaws and faults I am lucky, blessed, and fortunate, and wish all to know I live now and have lived a very good and mostly happy life, for which I am grateful from the bottom of my heart.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

I don't mind a bucket of popcorn, but dining at Cinemas (Drafthouse) seems ridiculous to me. When does the need to constantly feed stop? Are there no boundaries for convenience? What's next, employees bringing you a burger while you're filling up your car at the gas station? Gourmet grilled cheese and beer served while you are waiting at the doctor's office?  Lookingup

I've tried it once. We had something similar here in Germany some years ago but the theater had to scrap the food soon because of lack of interest I guess. It didn't work for me or my friends as we found the experience to be distracting. Fidgeting with a schnitzel under dimmed light while trying to focus on a movie just isn't my thing. And the beer ordering folks were running to the toilet more than once, which was kind of annoying.

Grabbing a bite to eat after a movie is much more fun and makes more sense in my opinion.

Time to ditch an Obama era policy called the Promise Program, & bring back an NRA endorsed policy called Project Exile.

What WOULD be cool would be having a pot bar in a theater!
Buy your weed and munchies at the front-and enjoy BAD movies in the theater!

Of course I do that at home just fine.... TongueOut

The NRA has made Democrats billions, they're not going to get rid of it anytime soon.
The NRA has made Republicans billions, they're not going to get rid of it anytime soon.

Dammit, just removed my last post on suicide when I meant to amend it. Just as well, wouldn't want to plant ideas in drug addicts' minds, but some people probably shouldn't be lied to about how good they are when they know their lives only hurt others. The man from the ceremony this weekend was a monster and died way too late.

Indeed it is. Inspire us with your awe and tell us what you know about the Great Mother of Sciences. I got a minute.
