Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything.

According to Google and the The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy I should be the answer. (I might just try and watch that again tonight. I was never able to sit through the entire thing, either I was too stoned or not stoned enough each time I tried.)

How does 42 make me fee? I feel good, maybe not the best I have felt but do I wish I was 24? No.

When I was 24 it was 1989. Not a great year for either me or Ted Bundy. That was the year my father died and it wrecked me.

Others had a great year, Colin Powel for instance and George Bush Sr. for another. And of course those people who had to stare at that retarded wall in Berlin for years on end wondering what was on the other side.

Then I start thinking, what was a good year for me? If there was one I could go back to, what would it be? I don't mean be a teenager now (you couldn't pay me to do that) I mean literally go back to a specific year in my life. I will have to think about that one.

Do you have a year in your life you would like to visit if you could? Tell us all about it.

And another thing...

Tracey and Andrew were here for my birthday and brought me a cake.

Death By Chocolate!

First. Happy Birthday! That cake looks heavenly.

Yeah, there's a couple years that I would like to go back to and take another stab at. Actually a morph of 1989/1990 is one of those years. Another is 1998. During both of those years, I crossed paths with someone that I should have paid a bit more attention to. It would be somewhat interesting to go back and see how making small changes would have worked.

Can't seem to come up with an answer to that one ... probably because THIS year (2007) is the best year of my life so far - despite the crappy job. I am the happiest now that I have EVER been. Right at this moment, that supersedes anything else that might be of interest in the past ... know what I mean?

Give me a coupla years - I might have an answer for you then - once the new bliss of married life goes away ..
