Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Simple Pleasures
Maybe it's because I'm a Taurus. I am easily pleased. Right now, for example, I'm in a great mood because A) the Giants have won eight straight; B) I finished another round of student appointments earlier today; C) I played in the Department game just now and could plant on my right leg throughout, even though I shot terribly; D) I did most of the dishes last night; E) I can let the rest of them wait until Saturday morning if I wish; F) I heard from a close friend I hadn't expected to be in contact for a good while to come; G) I learned about a pre-punk Tucson band to research; H) I can read for pleasure again, now that the teaching part of the semester is over; I) I still have a sandwich from Beyond Bread to eat; J) I know that a can of soda will taste great with it. Hell, I could list other reasons. None of them are particularly noteworthy. And yet I'm basking in inner sunshine.

Because I'm a Scorpio, I'm never pleased, it seems :-)

As a Scorpio, perhaps, I'm very hard to please, but I do have those moments when all the little things add up to happiness. Not today, but on other days, just walking around my house and loving my life through all its little details is more than enough.

My daughter is a Scorpio, so I'm acquainted both with the high standards and those moments when they become temporarily irrelevant. Still, it's exhausting for a Taurus like myself. . . :-)

I think it's actually because you're from St. Louis!

... and soon to have a new Malkmus show to listen to. I'm in PHX 'til tomorrow, but let me know when to pass along the tunes.
