Sunny Sunny Happiness

After the fifth time the song played, I knew I had lost control of the situation and had to admit Friday had been an okay day; the Swoops by Aiwa also gave me a better listening experience than earbuds.

From The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Character Song Vol 1 – Haruhi Suzumiya, “Hare Hare Yukai” by Aya Hirano is the closing theme to the related anime series, and also has an associated dance.

“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth,
but you shall meditate on it day and night, (Joshua 1:8)
so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it.
For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”

Almost lost my Music

“Options on Apple’s stock are implying a ‘much bigger than usual’ move, in either direction, after the technology giant reports first quarter results after Tuesday’s…”

Tuesday afternoon, I didn’t leave home until the absolute latest, and met a driver from UPS at my door. Next-day shipping was not worth the expense.

I got money orders and cash, and visited Penguin Pawn to make a payment, and to ask Denton when his road trip would be … exactly. Following advice from honorary Professor Denton, I bought a Garmin, to soon be among the ranks of Uber.

Later, Denton and Hannah and I watched ‘Kung Fury’ and the first episode for ‘Wayward Pines’.

“That was a pretty good day.
Why couldn’t I get that day over, and over, and over…”

Try it. Your mileage may vary.
Later, at work this song did change my mood.

A sweet escape, take me away /
Take me away to better days ♪
