the glue that holds the universe together

when the day is dragging on...
when the pressure just won't let up...
when i feel like nothing can go my way...

i just think about the one thing that always makes sense. the one thing that just always seems right... the glue to the universe. and "what is the glue to the universe?" you might ask. well, you know the hash symbol? some people like to call it the "pound sign" or the "number sign", but i call it "the symbol formerly known as #". well... the glue to the universe is that this symbol is italicized. it is italicized by nature. well before MS Office had the fancy I button that allowed you to emphasize letters, words, or phrases, the # was doing it all by itself. a trendsetter, an innovator, a symbol not afraid to stand out in a crowd.

the funny thing about # is its italicized state. when italicized as such, #, # straightens up a bit, stands a bit taller than his other slouching italicized brethren (at least in most fonts it does). so when you italicize #, you actually de-italicize it. now how revolutionary is that?

so whenever i'm down in the dumps, i think of good ol' #. a rebel, a pioneer, a slacker by nature. like me.

Well it looks like it didn't take you long to lose what sanity you gained from being back in the states. Are you going to make a movie called "#" anytime soon. It should be like "pi" or the upcoming episode of Lost entitled "?". Which was originally supposed to be directed by the director of "pi". Maybe you can get him to direct "#". Then the circle would be complete.
