It really is. I mean there's nothing bothering me in life at the moment. It's a really nice place to hang out. I'm wary of becoming too complacent though since that's when the universe tends to smack you around a little. But really, it's all gratitude and sunshine these days. The only thing that really gets on my nerves are the various injustices in the world, but I'm fairly well connected to the fact that I'm largely powerless to change it, so why get all narded up. That said, it's heartbreaking to see the environmental disaster unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico.
Hey did you see the story of the guy who hasn't eaten or drunk for the last 70 years? Or so he claims. They've observed him already for 5 days and he hasn't ingested nor excreted anything. He says the goddess nourishes him with her nectar as he meditates. They're watching him for two weeks to see if they can learn how he does it. Somehow I don't think the scientists are going to observe the goddess feeding him though. I just love things like this. Maybe James Randi will have to finally pay something out.
Here's something else that's lifted my spirits of late. The price of real estate around here. It's obscene. A five-plex went up for sale down the street that generates the same revenue as this place and it's listed for 200k more than I figured our place was worth. I know it's not real money unless you sell, but I've been looking around and the apartment blocks are selling for 15 times annual revenue. When we got into this game they were going for 10 times revenue. I think it's because interest rates are so low, even a modest return looks attractive these days. Part of me wants to cash in, but we both LOVE living where we live. Perfect apartment, perfect spot. I don't want to move. (I'd say ever again, but let's be realistic.)
Okay last thing was a site I didn't know existed but really cracked me up. There really is a site for everything these days. It's about people caught with awkward boners. Have a great weekend y'all!
