Ahem. I, Timon, am a meerkat, and darn proud of it, too. Let's be
clear about this. I'm not a prairie dog, or a weasel, or a mongoose. I'm a
meerkat. Meerkats are cute furry creatures with pointy tails, about 6"
tall. They look like... like... well, they look like this:

My Philosophy on Life
Repeat after me: Hakuna Matata. If you speak Swahili, then you
already know what that means. If you don't, it means "No worries," and it's
a philosophy that makes for a fun, carefree existence, if you ask me. Sure,
some people tell me it's irresponsible; you can talk to Simba about that, since
he's become king and doesn't have time for Hakuna Matata anymore. But it
works great for me. Look here. How far are you gonna get in life if you just
mope around and worry all the time about where you're gonna eat for the next
six months, or whether you should have done this or that with your life?
What kind of way to spend your time is that? You're where you are today
because lots of stuff happened in the past. You may not like where you're at
right now, but you can't change the past, no matter how much you think you
can. It's pointless to stew over what's gone by. So just live life one day
at a time, and if one bad day goes by that throws you out of step, just
start again and try to do it better. Say to yourself, "Hakuna Matata" --and
then just sit back and relax, and enjoy being yourself. What you get out of
life depends on what you put into it, so just don't be negative or you'll
get stuck in a loop of bad feelings. Think positive. Think happy. Think
Yeesh. Then there's Pumbaa. He's a warthog, and he's my best buddy, but
I'd put on a gas mask if I were you. Even if you're just looking at this picture of him. I've
developed an immunity to it, but sometimes his digestion just doesn't
agree with people's olfactory systems. I've tried to get him to lay
off those Beetle Burritos, but he's a hopeless addict. Sigh...
