My Lucky Rocketship Underpants Didn't Help Today

Mark Twain said in The Tragedy of Pudd'nhead Wilson: "When angry, count four; when very angry, swear."

I swore ALL DAY today.

It takes a lot for me to get angry. It doesn't take much for me to cry. But reader, I'm not ashamed to admit that I was both angry and teary today. Why should one be ashamed of or embarrassed by emotions? I sure as hell am not.

Does that make you uncomfortable?

Anyway, I'm not feeling particularly funny at the moment. I'm still rather vexed.

Like Calvin said, "You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocketship underpants don't help."

Some days you just have to admit defeat.

It's like the line from that Frou Frou song: "'cause there's beauty in the breakdown." I can't believe I just quoted that. My brain is a sticky toffee pudding since finishing this exam last night... I'm totally cream crackered. And there were A LOT of crazies at the local pub last night. (I blame the improving weather -- gonna be 24ÂșC today!!) One crazy even kept insisting that he'd helped Andy Warhol out (financially) back in the seventies. Then he stumbled off into the spring night. But during the spring I feel all my emotions roiling at the surface myself... I feel it's time in our lives for us to once again increase our eccentricity levels by at least 22% -- deal? This will mean not only BIG sunglasses, ostentatious handbags, and -- de temps en temps -- interjecting random foreign words and phrases into everyday speech, capice? -- but also...what, what should we add to our already generous repetoires of idiosyncrasies?

Please stop pretending like you DIDN'T leave your lucky rocketship underpants at my place. That is SO "Britney Spears illing Fred Durst"-style.

The truth shall set you free, readers... the truth shall set you free.
