Adding to the sum of accurate information in the world...
Truthiness (a word reinvented by the very great Stephen Colbert) is the quality by which a person purports to know something emotionally or instinctively, without regard to evidence or to what the person might conclude from intellectual examination.

My truthiness for the week:
* If I'm so damn smart, why don't I have a summer cottage and a BMW instead of a two-bedroom rental and a Honda?

* Happiness is never something you get from other people.

* Living alone for the first time in seven years is both terrifying and immensely gratifying.

* I don't care what (or who) celebrities are doing anymore. And this is coming from someone who used to watch E! like it was a second job.

* Being a bitch is acceptable if you're not: too mean-spirited, a crybaby, or completely incompetent. On the other hand, if you're stupid and a bitch, you're just a stupid bitch.

That is all.


  1. I hate that word (truthiness). It sounds too much like a W-ism.

  2. I love Stephen Colbert. That is all.


  3. You probably would have a summer cottage and a beemer if you had stayed with your soul sucking job at the soul sucking technology farm. But who wants that?

    And I've lived alone for six years now and am about to throw it all away for a pair of excellent dimples and morning coffee service. They say we get more selfish the longer we're on our own. And that is supposedly a bad thing (or something)?

  4. Ya know, KLo, I have to disagree with the happiness truthiness.

    Happiness can definitely be obtained by someone under the age of, let's say 6. Especially if you wipe their butts and noses and don't get paid for it.

  5. I concede on that point, Miranda. Let me clarify by prefacing my statement with "As an adult..."
