What an exciteable boy

I’m pretty exciteable. I will drop everything because I suddenly realized I could make a hobbit hole in Minecraft. Gone are my rigidly square stone buildings; now I have a wooden doorway in the side of a dirt hill, with a little glowy window a few squares over. It looks lovely. And because this is new to me I got all excited about it. I get excited about everything, though. When my kitty is cute, I’m excited about that. When food is delicious (which it very often is), I’m excited about that. I had to run around telling people when I finally comprehended the relationship between RGB and CMY color spaces.

Here’s a thing that may not be obvious:

Under the hood, pretty much everyone is that excited and enthusiastic about the things they love. They’re just shy about it. They’ve learned not to “overreact” and be all child-like and over-excited.

They’ve learned wrong. Try it some time. Be open about your enthusiasm. Pay attention to how food tastes, watch your pets as though you aren’t used to them. This stuff is awesome.

  1. I had to run around telling people when I finally comprehended the relationship between RGB and CMY color spaces.

    Where do I learn that? It sounds cool!

  3. If you use alternating rows of sand and sandstone, you can make japanese zen gardens too. And wool makes great mandalas.
