My current outlook on life

I am constantly dealing with two conflicting emotions. On the one hand, I hate when anyone is too into anything, especially on the internet. Are anthropomorphic cats really that funny? On the other hand, I really love when someone shows genuine enthusiasm for whatever he or she is doing at a given moment. I was even sympathetic to the people who were super-excited about discovering the sharing capabilities of Google Buzz.

In thinking about this for a moment, I realized that the Germans must have a word for this complicated feeling I hold in my heart, so here is my gift to you and an encapsulation of my state of mind:

You're welcome.
