Do you ever get the feeling things are a little out of control? Sometimes I do. I feel no sense of control over the current mass-hysteria-induced self-fulfilling downward economic spiral. People hear a recession is going on, so they take evasive maneuvers -which feed the aforementioned recession. A little closer to home for me, the surprise passing away of an aunt and this week's round of lay-offs were two things that have recently made me feel like a helpless spectator.
Whenever I get that feeling, I focus on those things I can control. I control my facial muscles to smile as I control my fingers to type this message. I was recently made aware of some Christmas lights you can control over the web. Even better, it's totally free and benefits Celiac Disease research (you know, folks who cannot eat donuts because they contain gluten -I can't think of a more appropriate cause)
Now, if -like me- you feel an uncontrollable urge to consume a donut, you will be glad to know Marcio Avillez (today's donut boy) has got you covered with five dozen Winchell's donuts. In Winchell's bizarre world of fourteen donut dozens, that means there are 70 donuts sitting here at my desk waiting for you to take control of your motor function (one step at a time) and come on down to get that satisfaction you crave.
