Today's Fortune: Wealth

Today's fortune cookie reads: "Wealth is a state of mind."

There is actually some depth to this, but at the same time I can't get out of my head the image of a drunken hobo screaming "I'm king of the world!" while being dragged off the streets by police officers for disturbing the peace.



Despite the fact that I never bother to advertise the videos I post on youtube, I nevertheless bristle and snarl when someone with inferior videos and grammar freely flings their misshapen works to the public and receives more attention. I am not shocked that they receive the attention given the obvious correlation, but I am riled.

Whenever this happens I briefly consider calling to light my own work in a public manner, followed quickly by perishing such thoughts. To take such a course of action would be to lower myself to the same level as these attention seekers, trying and saying anything to attract the brainless masses.

Yet in spite of this resolution I am again incensed the next time I encounter this. I am not sure I can consider myself rational.



On the way to and from the Renaissance faire today I saw billboards advertising yesterday's Rapture, imploring people to hear the truth before it was too late. I'm glad I procrastinated.


Today's Fortune: Sincerity

Today's fortune cookie reads: "You are a true and sincere friend."

While flattering, I'm now considering the logical possibilities of "true" but "insincere" friends, and "false" but "sincere" friends. What would they even look like, and how would Hollywood try and cram them into a summer movie.
