Building on Mr. G's "no stuff" entry...
I often wondered why other people envy the rich and famous. I personally think they're masochists, but maybe that's just me.
The other day someone said they were jealous of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. I asked them why. They thought I was offended and getting defensive. I merely wanted to know where this jealousy was coming from. They explained that Mary Kate and Ashley didn't do anything and had huge sums of money. I gave them a quizzical look and said, "but they act. They've got millions of stupid movies. They have to keep up with their appearance. And all that other crap. "They still insisted that those two did nothing.
Sometimes while watching Vh1's Life of the Rich and Famous I do get a little greedy. I look at all the 'stuff' in awe.
But would I be happy with all those material possessions? Yeah, of course I would. To have anything I willed. To do anything I willed. To have anyone do anything I willed. Of course I would enjoy that life style.
However like everything else the novelty will soon wear off and all I'm left with is an unsatisfied life. I would be unsatisfied but I would have no cause to be, I mean, I do have everything I want. Why would I be unsatisfied?
I'm searching for what will make me happy. And I've realized that money, fame, admiration from others (popularity), fried foods (except egg rolls, crab ragoons, and other good fried foods), pets, meaningless happiness, and probably a few other things make me happy for a bit but like drugs after the high I feel worse than before.
So I continue to search... (maybe the search gives my life meaning and I'm happy for something to do? Nah, nothing is that simple... except Life?)
But I still want some stuff.
