HAPPINESS....The results of a brand new kind of happiness study were released today. The subjects were 909 Texas women, and they were pretty clear about what made them grumpy:

By far the two factors that most upset people's daily moods were a poor night's sleep and tight work deadlines. According to a scale the researchers developed, women who slept poorly reported relatively little enjoyment even when relaxing in front of the TV or shopping.

Hmmm. I spend my entire day making up deadlines for myself (gotta post something quick!) and I don't sleep worth a damn and never have. I guess that explains my perpetually poor mood.

Oh well, it could be worse. I could always be a cat with insomnia. That would be one unhappy critter.
