An Acceptable Day… …Much Better Than The Past Few… …So I Ain’t Gonna Knock-It, Fo SHO.

Yes, My Peeps.

Yes, Today Was Acceptable.

Yes, Today Was Better Than The Previous Day.

Yes, Today Was Much Better Than The Days Prior To The Previous.

Everybody Got That?!

GOOD!!

๐Ÿ˜‰

So What Else Can I Say?

Hmm.

Good Question, Kids.

Well.

Hmm.

Okay.

I Can Say I Really Do Have Some Great Friends.

I May Not See Any Of Them Like I’d Like To…

…But They’re Still Great.

And I’m Very Lucky To Have Them.

Friends Are In Short Supply These Days, In Case You Hadn’t Heard.

I Think Congress Is Trying To Enact A Law Banning Them In Some States.

Don’t Quote Me On That…

…But I’ve Heard Rumors…

…Just Sayin’.

๐Ÿ˜€

As I Sit Here At My Desk…

…I’ve Got Some “Crap-Tastic” Tunage Goin’.

Some That, As Music, Is Barely Passable.

BUT…

…As An Instant “Smile-Generator” It’s Totally WONDERFUL!

Why Is It WONDERFUL, You Ask?!

Because, It Reminds Me Of Those Times When My Friends And I Were Constantly Together.

Everyone Has/Had Those Days.

Well…

…Perhaps Not Everyone.

Perhaps Most Everyone.

That’s A Safer Compromise…

…So I’ll Roll With It.

๐Ÿ™‚

Perhaps It’s Easy To Tell I’m In A Better Mood, Today?

I Think So.

Don’t You?!

SURE YOU DO!!

๐Ÿ™‚

I Even Made Sure To Let A Friend Know I Was Doing Better, Simply Because I Knew It Would Make HIS Day Better.

And It Did.

He Told Me So.

I Trust The Man With My Life, So I’m Confident He Was Being Honest.

And That Just Made MY Day That Much The Better.

Odd How That Works Out, Ain’t It?!

AIN’T IT!?!

No.

Not Really.

It’s Pretty Easy To Figure-Out.

Life Is Cyclical.

I Feel Better.

My Friend, Who Was Likely A Bit Down At Work, Then Felt Better Knowing I Was Better.

And I Felt Even Better Knowing He Was A Bit Better.

Crazy…

…But, I LOVE IT.

Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way.

Would You?!

SURE YOU WOULDN’T!!

๐Ÿ˜‰

You’re Pretty Cool, My Peeps.

I Love That About You.

And I Sincerely Want To Say THANK YOU.

THANK YOU For All The Kind Words While I Was In The Dastardly Dumps Of It All.

I Honestly, Truly Felt HORRID.

I Didn’t Want To Move, Let Alone Do Anything.

But, All I Kept Thinking About Were My Friends.

How I Missed Them.

How I Wanted To Be With Them.

How I NEEDED To Be With Them.

How I Was Going To Do Whatever I Had To Do To Make That Happen.

Then…

…I Felt Absolutely Awful Thinking I’d Caused Them Grief And Anguish Because I Was Really Too Sickly To Be Out-In-Public.

BUT…

…The Very Next Day…

…No One Was Pissed At Me.

No One Harbored Any Ill Will Or Malice.

They Just Wanted To Know How I Was.

If I Were Doing Okay.

If Things Were Better In Any Way.

And They Made Sure To Tell Me It Wasn’t Me That Sunk Their Evening.

I Wasn’t Even Part Of The Downer.

Yeah, It Sucked That I Was Sick…

…But That Wasn’t Why They Were So Down.

Between Knowing My Friends Were Okie The Dokie…

…And Knowing I Wasn’t The Root Of Their Issues…

…And Getting That Goddamn Medication Out Of My System…

…Yesterday Became A Touch Better.

And Today Was Better Than Yesterday.

๐Ÿ™‚

I’m Still Not 100%.

I’m More Like 86.73251%.

But THAT Is A VERY Acceptable Percentage.

I Know People Who, On Their Best Days, Barely Scratch The 50% Mark.

So I’m Doing Alright.

At Least, For Now.

So I Ain’t Gonna Knock-It, Fo SHO.

๐Ÿ˜€

L8r On, My Peeps.

Take Care…

…And Be Good…

…Ya Know…

If You Can.

The Song Stuck In My Head: “ISLAND IN THE SUN” by WEEZER (2001)

“…When You’re On A Golden Sea

You Don’t Need No Memory

Just A Place To Call Your Own

As We Drift Into The Zone…”

The Single Album For ISLAND IN THE SUNBy WEEZER !!!

“…On An Island In The Sun

We’ll Be Playing

And Having Fun

And It Makes Me Feel So Fine

I Can’t Control My Brain…”

One Of The Best Songs Of The Entire Preceding Decade, “ISLAND IN THE SUNIs Off Of The Band WEEZER‘s 2001 Self-Titled AlbumWEEZER” (aka “The GREEN ALBUM“) !!!

“…We’ll Run Away

Together

We’ll Spend Some Time

Forever

We’ll Never Feel Bad Anymore…”

Before Hitting The Sack, Last Night…

(teehehe I Said Sack)

…I Was Listening To Some Quality Tunes That (almost) Always Put Me In A More Cheerful Mood.

I Figured If I Go To Sleep In A Good Mood, Maybe I’ll Get Some Good Rest.

Well…

…It Worked-Out By Going Pretty Much Up The Middle.

The Quality Tunes DID Put Me In A Better Mood.

The Rest I Got WAS Good.

However…

…I Only Got 4-Hours-Worth Of It.

Good Plan.

Good Execution.

Just Not Enough Good Execution Of Said Plan.

Oh Well, Right?!

RIGHT!!

Anyway…

…This Song…

ISLAND IN THE SUN

by WEEZER

…Was The Lone Little Number I Ended-Up Playing More Than Once During My “Good Mood” Attempt.

ISLAND IN THE SUN

…Is Simply A Wonderful Song…

…And One Of The Total BEST SONGS Of The 2000s.

It Has Yet To Fail In It’s Duties To Make Me Smile…

…And That’s A Very Good Thing, Fo SHO, My Peeps!

It’s Calming.

It’s Soothing.

It’s A Smile-Inducer.

It’s A Mood-Enhancer.

To Me…

…That Equals A Rather Splendid Life-Experience.

Music Is LOADED With Life-Experiences Of All Natures.

Some Make Us Happy…

…Or Sad.

Some Make Us Angry…

…While Others Fill Us With A Personal Ecstasy-Type Feeling.

Music Is Wondrous Like That.

Wouldn’t You Tend To Agree?!

GREAT!!

I Kinda Figured You Would.

๐Ÿ˜‰

When I Awoke This Morning After My 4’ish-Hours Of Slumber…

…The First Thing I Wanted To Do Was Listen To This Song.

So I Did.

Now…

…I’ve Listened To It Damn Near a Dozen Times Between Last Night And This Morning.

It’s Stuck In My Head, Yet I Can’t Get Enough Of It.

Now THAT Is The Mark Of A Great Song.

Period.

Hear It A Dozen Times, Yet You’re Ready For Some More.

NICE!

I’ve Been A WEEZER Fan For A Long Time…

…And This Remains MY FAVORITE Tune Of Theirs.

Period Period.

Like I Said, It’s A Real Head-Changer.

For That Fact…

…It’s Stuck In My Head This Morning…

…And That Is NOT A Bad Thing!

Agreed???

AGREED!!!
