Happiness Is...


1,200 tracks by Akira Ifukube (Godzilla, kith and kin) on your iPod.

A dirty martini with habanero pepper–stuffed olives.

A contract for the script you've labored over for weeks, with payment on the way.

A new short story acceptance.

Enough money to buy gasoline to get to the friggin' office this week.

Well, four out of five ain't bad. Who needs to go to the office anyway?

Dammit. I'm endeavoring to be more the supervillain type, but it's taking some effort. A lot of people say I've only gotten as far as antihero. Grr.

1,200 tracks by Akira Ifukube sounds like a virus...is THAT on your IPOD? Serves you right for HAVING an IPOD (lol) I got a Sansa...I do not run with the crowd...but into it...

Shows why I get nowhere.
