Today's fortune: January 5, 2011

Today's fortune: Now is the best time for you to be spontaneous. Serendipity!

This fortune kinda pisses me off.

For two reasons: First, I discussed in an earlier post that it's impossible to be spontaneous when someone - or in this case, something - tells you to be spontaneous.(I received a couple terrific comments advising me to proceed anyway, but it still pisses me off). Second, the dictionary.com defenition of "serendipity" is "an aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident." That really doesn't have anything to do with being spontaneous.

Okay, okay... I guess, by being spontaneous, you could stumble into new territory and make new discoveries. I'll grant you that.

And I plan to explore that more. But not today.

I'm sick.

I've come down with a rather dreadful winter cold (and no, Jamie, you can't catch a cold by being cold!). I don't feel like being spontaneous right now. Sorry to disappoint.

Fortunately, today's cookie didn't produce a timeline besides "now." I interpret that as in the next few days.

For the moment, I just wanna take some NyQuil and go to bed.
