    Never mind that I am so fucking old that I used to babysit for Simon. His blog is awesome, even though I don't really get all the references.

Claire, I will never be able to be as pessimistic as you. Never.

Theresa just sent me the quote:
"The nice part about being a pessimist is that you are constantly being either proven right or pleasantly surprised." --George Will


See? There's even a nice part about being a pessimist.
- Amy the fucking optimist


Want to feel REALLY pessimistic? Not more than 2 minutes after I read this post I was looking at a booklist (my day job) and this book came up:

We Are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism, by John Derbyshire

with this description:

Derbyshire, a columnist and contributing editor for The National Review, confronts the "mendacity of hope" in this irreverent-sometimes-inflammatory screed...Derbyshire impresses upon his audience the necessity of maintaining a pessimistic view of human nature; happy talk, he says, is for children, fools and leftists...

We ARE doomed. Right again, Ann....


I am the internal optimist. Want lessons? Love your blog.


Eternal as well! Always try to stay in happy.
