Wow. Why does it seem as though everyone is in love besides me? A boyfriend I don't miss so much. I have my best friend, he's close enough, he fills several roles. But to really be in love -- it's been a while. I think it might not be so bad if Manning AND Jon AND Scarecrow AND rxgreene AND Gina and everyone else in the world didn't talk about it so much. Especially those first two. I mean, hey, don't get me wrong, love is great, I'm down with it, I know, it's Spring and all, I still remember what it feels like, kinda. I don't have a problem with you sharing; you should be able to shout from the mountaintops. But a little disclaimer might be helpful. Like "Beware: Love Talk Below". Just so's I can steel myself up. Or something. Urp.



It took me a while to find all of those links, and while I was, I got to thinking that I might be giving people the wrong idea of my Philosophy of Happiness. By no means do I want to give anyone the impression that one needs to be in love in order to be happy. I think that that's what movies and pop songs and Ally McBeal hit us in the head with everyday, and I think it's a load of crap, and it makes teenagers more unhappy than they need to be. I don't need to be in love to be happy. I'm quite happy. It's just that with Spring and all . . . it just would be nice, is all. Nothing permanent, just a little affectionate fling. Damn, I came off sounding like a real wuss. That sucks. But I can't NOT post this now. It really did take me a while to find those links. Especially that ScareCrow one. Oh well. Please don't comment on this post.

    Today is Thursday. Settlement on the sale of our house is Tuesday. I took the dog for a walk today, and I started to get a little emotional.

    So it wasn't until late 2013 that I learned how amazing Ursula K. Le Guin is, and how much I adore her. I have been slow in getting through her…
