Mission in Life
|Once upon a time there was an artist named Shano. |
Shano had a busy schedule, a busy life, a family, a ranch and a plethora of animals to look after. Shano always told herself that when her youngest finally went to school full time in first grade, that she would paint and paint and paint, thus becoming rich rich rich and famous. She would have COPIOUS amounts of free to time not only paint, but do crafty things, and clean, and organize, and life would be wonderful. Euphoric! Friends would pop by unannounced and compliment Shano on her gloriously clean house and thus would be insanely jealous of how perfect her life is.
Shano decides that she needs. NEEDS. to find a non-existent Halloween screensaver that was her daughter's favorite when her daughter was a mere two-years-old (her daughter is almost nine now.) Hours turned into years and still no Halloween screensaver with 3D candy corns and other stuff (it's been 7 years, who can remember what the other 3D items were) that twirl around on a black background with a little witch that occasionally flies by and says "boo" (or cackles or something). Shano's computer is now completely bogged down with gazillions of megabytes of every idiotic, stupid, half-witted, spyware infested, Halloween screensaver known to man.
Poor Shano, who lives. LIVES. for Halloween is on a mission (not unlike an Apostle!) to seek the elusive Halloween screensaver. No more painting. No more cleaning. Just sitting at the computer in sweats and a ponytail searching unmercifully for the clandestine 3D Halloween Screensaver while life (the family, ranch, and animals) fall apart around her. Wish her well people. Wish her well.
The moral of the story is: Do not become completely neurotic/insane about certain Halloween screensavers. (And get on some more effective meds.)
