Your horoscope (from Weird Al Yankovic):
The stars predict tomorrow you'll wake up, do a bunch of stuff, and then go back to sleep.
Proust's advice when you are "...dispirited after a dreary day with the prospect of a depressing morrow..." -- have a cookie!
Perhaps we have not succeeded in answering all of your questions.
The answers we have found only serve to raise a whole set of new
questions. In some ways you may feel as confused as ever, but we
hope you are confused on a higher level and about more important things.
