Everything IS Amazing and So Few People are Happy

Posted on 10/23/09 15 Comments

This is another great video clip for you with Conan O’Brien interviewing comedian Lewis CK.  “Louie” is talking about how amazing life is right now and yet how “non contributing zeros” can still find something to complain about.  Basically the clip is about gratitude and appreciating all that is good with the world we live in.  Although hysterically funny, there is so much truth in the clip, especially if you spend any time on those email chat-lists. It scares me how brave/rude/critical people can get behind a computer screen, ouch!

So this one lets us all laugh at ourselves.

Today I am grateful for the fact WE ARE MOVING INTO THE NEW HOUSE THIS WEEKEND!!! Yes, finally, it is not absolutely completed but we are moving in while the weather is still agreeable.  Hmm only 4 1/2 months past our promised moving in date . . .  but wait, me saying that makes me a “spoiled idiot” doesn’t it?  So, how about I rephrase that to “OMG, we have a NEW house to move into and it is amazing, how grateful am I!  

Have a good one everyone and if you are near Alberton, Ontario this weekend stop by and lift the heavy end will ya?

    Based on the arrival-day blog, I’m guessing the house includes a Slap Chop shrine, climate-controlled, perfectly lit, the works.

    Good one Claire… it will have its own lighted cabinet with a gold plate for it to rest on… Did you know they sell them in the US at Walgreens? – Yes I had to hold her back from a purchase in TN…

    and given Susan’s “moving” ability Im sure she’s moved as much of it as she could single handily today as she was trying to do wheeling the Freezer on a moving cart through the agility field on Wednesday when I was there!

    It is exciting… I wish I could be there to see the dogs first romp through!

    Congrats on the up-coming move. Does the Slap Chop have a cupboard all its own?

    We need pictures!!!!

    Hey Susan, What great news that the house is finally ready for you, John and the furkids!! As they say, “all good things are worth waiting for”. Enjoy the house for many years to come. I will email you a clip I received relating to your blog today.
