I Know Y'all Probably Want Substance...

...but you're not getting it today. instead, here's some shameless plagiarism from a friend's away message:

"When I was quite young and quite small for my size, I met an old man in the Desert of Drize. And he sang me a song I will never forget. At least, well, I haven't forgotten it yet.

He sat in a terribly prickly place. But he sang with a sunny sweet smile on his face:
When you think things are bad, when you feel sour and blue, when you start to get mad… you should do what I do!
Just tell yourself, Duckie, you're really quite lucky! Some people are much more…oh, ever so much more… oh, muchly much-much more unlucky than you!
Thank goodness for all the things you are not! Thank goodness you're not something someone forgot, and left all alone in some punkerish place like a rusty tin coat hanger hanging in space.
That's why I say, 'Duckie! Don't grumble! Don't stew! Some critters are much-much oh, ever so much-much, so muchly much-much more unlucky than you!"

doesn't that just say it all?

The desert of drize sounds like a wise place :)
