Thoughts for a Wednesday
2 - Dealing with the local town government of the place where I work is turning me into an anarchist who will be joining the militias in Montana. It is utterly ridiculous the restrictions, paperwork, meetings, and hoops that must be jumped through in order to put a frickin' sign in front of a business. And then you can't even put a sign that is big enough in front of your business or in your business's colors. It is utterly ludicrous, an exercise in inanity, and God help me to find the patience for it.

4 - Only 3 more days until the official start of the vernal equinox - the daffodils are pushing their way up through the ground, the birds chirping their beautiful melodies each morning, the sun shining gloriously in a brilliant blue sky, even a walk in a spring rain becomes refreshing and enjoyable, not annoying and miserable. Goodbye long, long winter. Hello long, sunshiney days.
6 - I fully admit to watching the 20/20 special on The Bachelor/Bachelorette series. Do I feel ashamed? Not a bit. I love this show for its ability to make me laugh at the antics of these people - it is so amazing. The series executive producer definitely comes across as sketchy with a capital "S" and "Ketchy", and the behind the scenes look at the casting of these characters was fascinating. I think I would probably rather claw my eyes out than watch the upcoming season of The Bachelorette with Ali though - I honestly don't know if I can stomach it. But I know that inevitably I will get sucked in.
7 - Deadliest Catch will you please premiere soon? I miss you.
8 - Last and final thought. I keep reading or hearing things in our culture touting happiness as the ultimate goal in life and basing all decisions upon that goal. It disheartens me. I don't think happiness is a worthy goal to build a life around. I think that there is something more, much more worth living worth, and happiness and her deeper persona, joy, are byproducts and emotions that ebb and flow. Building a life centered around an emotion just seems to be a castle built in the sand.
