Doodling in Dreamland

I had fun last night. Wacom tablet in hand, I sketched and tinted a cartoon for an upcoming entry, listening to act 2 and 3 of Madama Butterfly. I'm not being sarcastic here. When I get "in" to a drawing, even if it's one of my crap cartoons, I'm in another world. Same with music I like. I was half way to Fantasyland, watching Cio Cio San, Pinkerton, Goro and the rest of the Madama Butterfly gang have it out.
Later the irony hit me.
  1. It was Valentines day
  2. I wasn't on a date
  3. I wasn't unhappy about this
  4. In fact, it didn't occur to me.
In other words, everyone else was out having fun with someone else and I was geeking away at my computer listening to music that nobody else listens to and was not even aware that something was wrong with the picture. At least I could have been unhappy, perhaps commiserating with Cio Cio San who waits in vain for her love to return. Not me. I'm so clueless. I'm doodling in dreamland.
Does this make me a loser? Am I a loser if I don't feel like a loser?
