Wise Words

There's a web-comic, I forget the name of it, but it's syndicated on LJ - a writer in Hollywood, it's just panels of him on his phone talking to his agent, generally. It's satirical and funny, and frequently absurdist. I have a special place in my singing fish for the absurd.

Anyway today's entry was a strange yarn about a (lethal) art project, but in it he is exhorted to say something wise. And he says, "If you want to know how far you'll go in life, look at the five people you spend the most time with."

That got me thinking. Who are the five people that I spend the most time with? This is sort of a depressing thought. Not only am I not surrounded by luminaries, catapulting me to fame and fortune, I'm not sure there are even five people that I spend enough time with regularly to count as the five people I spend them most time with.

I can only come up with one reasonable conclusion, then - that in terms of how far I'm going to go in life, I'm most likely to end up spending my days sleeping in sunbeams, licking myself, and making strange noises out the window. Also sleeping.

Not too bad, really.
