Ways to be happy

1. Voiceover yourself well

Fix your attitude with the help Don LaFontaine, THE movie voice. Intone the first line of the movie trailer of your life to show how - in a one-minute montage - any problem can be solved.

Slept in?
"In a world where the early bird gets the worm - one man is late."

Problems with work (for me, lab equipment).
"In a world where nothing goes right - they pissed off the wrong man."

2. Pirate Psychology

My friend Evil Dave maintains that it is impossible to remain depressed while speaking like a pirate for 15 minutes. I've tried this strategy through pennilessness and hospitalisation, and he is correct.

3. Music Boosting.

Music is the most subjective subject there is, where one mans Bach is anothers Slipknot - but anyone who can stay in a bad mood while listening to "Ghostbusters" or "Take on Me" is someone I want to be unhappy.

Found you via Chris' Invincible Super Blog. Excellent! I am so using the movie voice one.

Well, I am a damn sexy beast, though I'm almost scared to find out what filter rules denoted my account as too erotically charged for the business world.

Glad to spread the happiness wisdom - Mr Movie Voice can make everything better!

I have been having second pirate related thoughts recently. How humourous is it to pretend to be a murdereer and a rapist? Imagine international speak like a serial killer day.
Arrrhhh I reckon I will be blue again now...

This has been accounted for! The fine fellows over at International Speak Like a Pirate Day make it as clear as I could; real pirates suck ass. The pirates we emulate in our modern day are wonderfully neutered by our civilised sensibilities, naught but an excuse to swill grog and have fun.
