What I'm Smoking
Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," with Alice for puns and hilarity for all!
Oh, for the love of fruit fies. Will this woman never be serious? She even takes an iconic quote by Abraham Lincoln and rips into it. What is she smoking?
One of my commenters actually asked me that. What am I smoking?
I don't smoke. The stuff I would choose to smoke if I could is illegal, and I don't want to have to pee in a cup and pay a fat fine just to get happy.
But happiness is important to me. I use this web site as my happiness generator. Is it working for you? Do you laugh when you come here? I do, most of the time. Laughter is a tonic approved by the bored gods.
The world is in an uproar. The danger zone is everywhere. There are three choices you have to deal with it. You can:
1. Become depressed
2. Become angry
3. Laugh, because what the hell else can you do?
I'm not a flippant person. I don't sit around watching the news and laughing at poor little kids buried in earthquake rubble. I also don't laugh when the casualty lists come in from Iraq, when people get downsized out of their jobs, when the world starts to heat up and dry out like a raisin.
But when I come here to "The Gods Are Bored," I want to put all that stuff aside for a moment, just in order to re-draw the sanity line in the sand. Dwelling on difficulties you can't control will drive you insane. Whereas doting on faeries you can't control will deprive you of pain.
And with that I say, laugh as much as you can, as often as you can, damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!
