In My Ever-Persistent Search For Happiness & Beauty In My Life

Share Credit: Y’all Enjoy Thanks to Kevin Bacon (Yeah, that actor dude) Yeah, we’re FB Buds. Hahahahah! Someone put a lot of time and effort into constructing this vid; wish I could give proper credit. Alas..

Ed. Note: (At the beginning. Yes, not ‘conventional’)

But if you do not watch the videos, you are wasting your time here.

Fuk it. I tried.

I am usually met with success.
(Because I am persistent)
‘Happiness’ is a choice.
A Conscious Choice.
You can choose to be happy.
You can choose to be sad.
It is your choice.
Not saying that it is always easy,

To find Happy.

****

Just had to:

Jennifer!

Maniac!

Captured my Heart all-over-again!

Frequently you must search it out.
Shit!
Sometimes even I have to look under the bed
In the ‘head.’ –Navy Vernacular
Under The Couch.
Under The Grouch
But I always find it:
Happiness.
Like the Vid at the top of this post—That made me happy.

I searched it out.

(Found it Buried in my instant messages and behind my fridge–but I found it–finally.)

****

I hope you do too.

Find ‘Happy’

Live Happy

Cheers!

(Confession Time: The only reason this post even exists is to serve as a vehicle for the marvelous dance videos at the top. Feel free to ignore all my preachy bullshit prose and just enjoy the videos. Hahahahaha)

‘Added Value’ :

Credit Card Companies PISS Me OFF

Song Credit: Dick Feller

Recent email to me:

“Lance, thank you from Capital One. You’re invited to pre-qualify for auto financing with no impact to your credit score.”

Since when do Credit Card Companies think they are allowed to be on ‘First-Name Basis’ with me?

I wrote their Customer Service Back:

“Hey Cap! Come to Commerce.
We’ll do lunch and then go on a Bar Crawl.”

Next statement, I ‘Discovered’—Pun intended—Cap One had raised my interest rate.

Fuk ALL CC Companies.

*******

Bonus Added Value (Kinda – Sorta Related)

Best Way To ‘Use’ Credit Cards:

Max ‘em out on Shiny Toys.

Then Never Pay The Bill.

Worked for Me.

After Seven Years, You Get a ‘Reset.’

And they start sending you CC Offers Again.

Rinse & Repeat

(Yeah, Larceny Runs in My Veins)

Gnat Pool Party

So, I am tryin’ real hard (Yes it is hard. Hey! Get Yer Mind Outta That Gutter!)

Tryin’ real hard to tone down on the drinkin’.

Poured me a ‘HALF-GLASS’ of wine, (Not much more than would fill a hen’s ear) into a ‘Normal’ wine glass as opposed to my usual, ‘Barrel Glass Runneth Over.’

NE-Way….

Phone started ringing (as it sometimes do)

Set my glass on the counter and waltzed over to pick-up the phone:

“Hello,” I said.

Voice on the line asked,

“Is this Lance Marcom?”

“Might be. What do you want?”

“Mister Marcom, I am Helga with Corporation Blah, Blah, Blah. Our records indicate you are two months in arrears. When may we expect a payment to your account?”

“Let me get back to you on that.

My Fridge is running and I need to go catch it before it escapes.
Bye now.”

*Click*

Remembered my ‘Left-all-alone’ wine glass.

Went back to re-capture it and take it hostage for my liver.

Discovered the Gnats were having a Gnat Pool Party in MY POOL. Doing back-flips, canon balls, and competitive diving off the rim of my glass.

I rescued my glass and drank down the wine along with the Fun-Loving Gnats.

“That’ll teach ‘em, by God!”
I said to no one in particular.

OK, so I was trying to sleep yet another one off.
Was having this dream:
Someone was placing their hands on me.
I woke up.


MS Muse had placed some headphones over my ears and whispered softly to me,


“Hear Baby; Listen to this:
Things are gonna grow better, brighter.
I promise.”

(Since WhorrPress is SO STUPID. try to find one of My Abusive Muse Links Below. Approach it as an Easter Egg Hunt.)

Bonus ‘Added Value’ Tracks
Just To ‘ACCENTUATE THE POSITIVE’

The GREAT Bob Marley

The GREAT Johnny Mercer

Car Shield? No Deal!

Y’all know I watch way too much CNN.

Ten Minuets of ‘News’ and Fifty Minuets of Obnoxious Commercials.

Every Hour.

Day after Day.

Every Day!

Above is one of the worst.

I dialed up Car Shield:

“Hey Car Shield! I want to Board Your Gravy Train!”

“Sure. We are here for you. But first, we require some info.”

“Watcha need?”

“Just some personal info (Which we will never share, nor sell.”)

“OK . What then?”

“Next of kin. First Born. Mother’s Maiden Name. You know. The Usual.”

“Alright. Here ya go.”

“Oh, and one last thing.”

“Yes?”

“A Photo of the Current Condition your vehicle is in.”

“Certainly. Let me hang up so that I may email you a photo.”

I emailed them my photo:

They never called me back.

Cannot imagine why…

So Fuck it!

I called up Flo

(We on ‘First Name Basis’)

“Hey Flo! How’s it go?”

“I love you Lance! How may I help you today?”

“Just hold me.”

“OK.”
