"What?! Jackpot!!"

There is a comedian, Dane Cook, who does a hilarious bit that he calls "the nothing fight," about couples that seem to hate each other and the silly, ridiculous fights they get in. He tells a story of how he was once in a grocery store when he heard a nothing fight starting a few aisles over. So he gets all excited, and acutally leaves his grocery cart to go watch. This is a meagin-rendering of the next part of this bit:

"I'm so excited, I acutally leave my grocery cart! You never leave your cart! God forbid, somebody walks into the store and wants exactly that crap! They'd be like, 'What?! Jackpot!!! This is everything i wanted!'"

You really need to hear it to truly, fully appreciate it. I've been inspired by this. I find myself walking around, saying "jackpot!" all the time. It brings me joy.
My jiu jitsu instructor, Chris, was fixing my laptop (because he's an amazing super genious) and, knowing how much love i feel for that bit, he actually downloaded a sound bit, so that the noise my computer makes when i start it up is, you guessed it, "What?! Jackpot!!" I love it.

Anyway, I am so busy and overwhelmed with, well life, that I need little things to make me happy. Little things, like Jackpot, bring a quick smile, no matter what modd i'm in, how tired i am, how stressed out i am, or how many dozens of pages this research paper needs to be. So, my new little blog, ideally, will be filled with little things that bring me joy. Hence, Jackpot.
