You got those jumbled up. You meant to say hot weather, affordable women, and great housing, right?

LOL! I saw a bumper sticker on a car once, said, "Colorado sucks. Go back to California and tell all your friends."

Re: How Happy are You?

The more worser one - back in the 70's when I lived in Littleton:

'Don't Californicate Colorado.'

heh heh heh - I still like 'Don't mess with Texas' best.

I choose mostly happy. Family is working who wants to be, and relatively healthy.
Money is flowing the right directions. I am a bit security driven which means fear in there somewhere deep down. Think I raised my kids being only part as dysfunctional as my parents. : )

I need self actualization to be complete. Guess I get to rest when this life time is done. Maybe I'll change lead into gold or water into wine, or pick the usual things like curing aging or disease.

A few more coping mechanisms and I'll pass for normal, even if normal is average. : )

Oh this is funny!!! Back in 2007 I was still working and chose "mostly cheerful". Now, I am retired and if the poll were posted today, I would have selected "doing the snoopy dance"! I guess I really did "Want2retire".

I would say that I am mostly happy. Sometimes I feel so great I get a rush. But I also am ironic and sarcastic, so I don't think I would qualify as the most cheerful person around. I think my outlook on life could be described as tragi-comic, though others may sometimes describe it as only annoying.
