“Between the optimist and the pessimist, the difference is droll. The optimist sees the doughnut; the pessimist the hole!” -Oscar Wilde

It's a great world we live in. I wouldn't make a statement like that without some evidence.
I think the Day of the Donut speaks for itself. I can't believe I missed this holiday! Must celebrate post-date. For those of you who enjoy a the ridiculous quizzes on Facebook, I have one for you - What Donut Am I? I doubt its reliability though and you probably will too considering what it turned up for me...You are a Powdered Devil's Food Donut
A total sweetheart on the outside, you love to fool people with your innocent image.
On the inside you're a little darker, richer, and more com
plex.
You're a hedonist who demands more than one pleasure at a time.
Decadent and daring, you test the limits of human indulge
nce.

Certainly not my favorite kind and I've never been called sweetheart except when it's dripping with sarcasm.

Re: Donuts. comedian Mitch Hedberg says it best:

“I bought a doughnut and they gave me a receipt for the doughtnut... I don't need a receipt for the doughnut. I give you money and you give me the doughnut, end of transaction. We don't need to bring ink and paper into this. I can't imagine a scenario that I would have to prove that I bought a doughnut. To some skeptical friend, 'Don't even act like I didn't get that doughnut, I've got the documentation right here... It's in my file at

home. ...Under "D".'”


Other reasons to keep on keeping on:

Frugal Foodies combines two of my most distinct characteristics: thriftiness and eating. Not to mention my love of meeting total strangers.

Also I think I will attend the Los Angeles Tamale Festival in November. One of my all-time favorite foods...spicy and warm at a chilly time of year...I love havi ng things to look forward to! On the topic, I'm currently anticipating conventions, HP6 (it feels a bit strange having those two side by side), family camping adventure in the Olympic National Forest at the end of August, the Eclipse movie and road trips!

Lastly, Holi - the annual Hindu spring festival of colors - has to be the best festival ever. New life goal is to attend and hopefully not be shunned but instead covered in colored powder and water. Crazy good time! More pics at Big Picture blog.

Any festivals (music, crafts, food...) you recommend?
