Gui Xian (Arvind) EEEEE :)

In case thou art wondering what thou art staring at, thou shalt not be constrained to wonderment.
"Gui Xian (Arvind) EEEEE :)" is no mumbo jumbo comin straight from my malfunctioning, often hypo- functioning neurons. Rather, it is something that probably emanated from the most fundamental of human desires- that of happiness. Think am conked off? Perhaps you arent wrong after all....
Gui Xian is a chinese mythological creature- a turtle which symbolises happiness.Its a bit of a paradox- why would anyone associate a turtle with happiness? They are probably the most dull, uninteresting lethargic of all creatures you could ever come across. Happiness could have been easily associated with some avian creature capable of producing recurrent, pleasant stuff for the ears. Or some cool carnivore that ambles around the jungle after a heavy meal.
But no. Its a turtle.
No majesty,no grace: but yeah, its a turtle for happiness.
Thats the food for thought folks!
(And no... am NOT talking of EATING turtles)
