In Search of Peace and Happiness - Day 6

Today is Monday.  Monday waited until the end to make me happy...  I was really having to think hard on the way home tonight to figure out what had made me happy.  Having to get up at 5:15am certainly didn't do it. 

Going to the dentist to have my brand new bite plate fitted didn't really make the "happy" list - although I do like going to the dentist and I understand that the bite plate may make me much happier than I could ever imagine in the end.  Considering the cost of the thing, I am definitely grateful to have decent dental coverage.

Even purchasing cheap milk was only a "meh" kind of thing today.  With two growing boys, dairy is a LARGE portion of my grocery bill.  I would much rather pay $6.17 for 4 litres than the usual $7.02 that I usually pay.  For any Americans, 4 litres is roughly a gallon, which is why my last stop before the border crossing is usually for 4 gallons of "half price" US milk.

The last thing that I did today was stop and pick up the mail.  Today the mail made me very happy, and will likely keep me laughing for a while.  I found the Xrisville Road Show hiding in my mail box!  Xrisville describes itself as "a humor magazine of no fixed boundaries".  Feel free to check them out on YouTube or at their "band camp" site.  In many ways, I believe that Xrisville is a peek into the psychedelic and probably mega cool brain of its creator, Christopher (Xris) Bland.  We went to high school and college together, but I didn't know him then, although I was certainly familiar with his humour and writing in college.  We only met through mutual friends later.  While it may not be everyone's cup of tea, it makes me smile.  Oh - and I got extra copies for sharing!!!

Glad you found a laugh! I still need to go face the taxes, but I'm ticking away at my to do list... and I really do have until one week from today for some reason to submit the taxes!
