That damn LA sunshine is ruining my NY edge

I'm finding all this happy stuff now. It's getting to be a real problem. Particularly since it's also really sweet.

I need to go file my teeth into points or something and restore my callous cruelty. Sheesh.

I didn't realize happy was a four letter word.

Boooooo! Shiny Happy people suck. You know that just like I do (and I'm not anywhere NEAR New York. C'mon Janet, don't succumb! STAY AWAY FROM THE LIGHT! Stay here in the dark with all of us mean and nasty people. Not only do we have better candy, but we kidnap those shiny happy people once in a while...y'know, if we get bored we can make them cry and feel better...

(big grin)

I fear for those who submitted to Query Shark! :)

Oh, yes. I was thinking the exact same thing.

QS sprawls across a throne-like chair, brooding. "I've been entirely too happy lately."

The two henchmen, standing on either side of her and nod.

An accountant peers from behind the chair and adjust his glasses. He thumbs through a report and then clears his throat. "Polls show your popularity is down 3.89 percent because of your recent happiness. Predictions show you--"

"Enough!" She storms off the dais, motioning to the henchmen who fall into step behind her. One of them opens a dimly lit cell door, where a flock of authors wait. She looks around the room and snorts. "I hate flocking authors."

She points at three and nods to her henchmen. "Bring them."

The remaining ones fall to their knees and offer up feverish prayers of thanks.

"Don't be too sure you've escaped," she says with an evil laugh. "I've been really happy lately. If someone finds me a good taco truck here, it might take a dozen of you to wipe the grin off my face."



Sorry, I couldn't resist. Well, I could have, but I have no self-control, or willpower, or even common sense.

@Julie Weathers. That is hilarious. That made ME happy!

Will this spreading of joy never end?

Duh, that's what happens when you type fast as you are getting ready for work. Think of it as a Where's Waldo? Can you find the mistakes?

Glad you're back, JR.

Hehe, I'm glad you're back to Miss Reid.
And Julie, loved the inside scoop on the Shark.

Thanks for the video, Janet. It was very sweet. I just forwarded to it a friend who sent her daughter (also named Alex) on a plane to Nicarauga this morning for a mission trip.

Thanks for passing it on!

My mistress has absolutely prohibited me from liking to a video of me singing. She says I sound exactly like a goat. ... I always thought that was the point ...

However, she did not say I couldn't link to one by a cousin ...

In the interests of fair and balanced goating, this video represents Bill E. Goat's great thinking ability:
