Some random musings
People sometimes say they are "overjoyed" when good things happen. But how can you be
joyed? What does it mean to be
happy? Maybe the prospect of too much happiness makes people
joyed, and they cancel each other out and what's left is just good old-fashioned joy.

It's raining outside, and I've just heard a merry rendition of
Singing in the Rain
from somebody running for shelter. This almost inspired me to write a song called
Singing "Singing in the Rain" in the Rain
. But if I started on that path, where would it end?

I only need to know the correct time twice a day: once when it's time to wake up, and once at dinnertime. So I might as well just buy a stopped clock, since it will be right twice a day. (I wish
were right twice a day.)
