“Be Content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”
All righty…Zoltar didn’t say that. Lao Tzu actually said it. Zoltar would have probably said something to the effect of, “Be happy bitches, and stop whining…Freakcycle’s finally got a post up so get that twist outta your panties already”.
Being part of the zombie workforce kind of sucks. Gone are the days of 10 am coffee or wine coolers (depending on my mood) and now its only whine. In fact, I’ve mentioned some variation of wine or whine twice already, three times if you count this sentence. I’m out of practice, I’ve got a lot to say, and I’m not editing a darn thing. Did I mention I’m cranky too?
Took this pic of my friend Zoltar when I went to Atlantic City to try and win big so I could tell the Man to stuff it and return to my previous life of leisure. That didn’t happen- the winning big, or the life-changing prophecy. Zoltar didn’t say a godammn thing to me.
You gotta pay for the big Z to dispense his pearls of wisdom and being the know-it-all that I am, I felt he couldn’t tell me anything I didn’t already know. I didn’t spend a penny seeking good fortune because I’m kind of a cheap bastard.
I wandered around for hours with my significant other and we laughed at the folly of sad-sacks as they plopped their chips on tired, fading felt tables again and again. We’d taken the trip for some grins and giggles but when we were done, instead of joy, we felt empty and desperate. A place like Atlantic City will do that to you.
Why am I telling you all this? (Run-on sentence alert) Because you are either a person who sees the glass half-empty or the glass half-full and that will dictate what view you have of the world, be it the view off of a houseboat in Cambodia or the concrete you wake up to under the cardboard box in a grimy alley behind Caesar’s Palace in Atlantic City.
Stop judging. Since I am a glass half-full kind of person, all you need to know is that the cardboard was clean and quite pleasant.
Alternately, if you are a glass half-empty kind of person, you have no business reading this blog. We are positive and pleasant folk here, with sunny dispositions and a great outlook on the world. (Like how I started it off all pissy and cranko and now I’m skipping on a double rainbow with my pet unicorn?—see our ABOUT page. Classic number 6 behavior)
We’ve featured a couple of sunshine-chasing Freecyclers below to help get you on board. Believe in the possibility of what the holders of “The Secret” already know. “Everything is possible, nothing is impossible”.
Remember that when you’re looking for direction, pie in the sky fortunes, back patting, half-truths and hacky life coaching, you don’t have to look for it at the casino or elsewhere for that matter because Freakcycle’s already got your back.
What’s the moral of this story in a nutshell? (Again, crazy is as crazy does and we’re plenty aware of it, so don’t go there) Now, where was I? Oh yeah, the moral. Sometimes you have to walk all the way around the block before you realize you’re already home.
Still with us?
- WANTED: LCD Television (Fxxxxxd)- I am looking for a flat screen HD LCD television- any size. Thank you for considering!
- WANTED: Running Vehicle (Kxxxxxt)- Don’t know if am allowed to post this. Need a running vehicle. My car’s block cracked and I need a running vehicle to get to work. Will take most anything that does not need major motor/trans issues. Minor like brakes, tune up, etc is fine. Thank you for your help.
