sooo ... not only my inner child is HAPPY.
You see life as simple, and simple is a very good thing. You're cheerful and upbeat, taking everything as it comes. And you decide not to worry, even when things look bad. You figure there's just so many great things to look forward to.
how is your inner child?

song of the day: no surprises by radiohead, though i am not sure i agree with the title. ;)
