Some days I feel like Zaphod Beeblebrox and I feel flawless because hey I am one cool frood

Other days I feel more like Marvin and I feel really depressed because everyone else is an idiot

But most days I feel and act a lot more like Arthur Dent because I spend all day in my jim-jams and dressing gown and I have no idea what’s going on

Zaphod sat up sharply and started to pull clothes on. He decided that there must be someone in the Universe feeling more wretched, miserable and forsaken than himself, and he determined to set out and find him.
Halfway to the bridge it occurred to him that it might be Marvin, and he returned to bed.

I sense a deep dejection in your diodes," it vollued (for the meaning of the word "vollue”, buy a copy of Squornshellous Swamptalk at any remaindered bookshop, or alternatively buy The Ultra-Complete Maximegalon Dictionary, as the University will be very glad to get it off their hands and regain some valuable parking lots), “and it saddens me. You should be more mattresslike. We live quiet retired lives in the swamp, where we are content to flollop and vollue and regard the wetness in a fairly floopy manner. Some of us are killed, but all of us are called Zem, so we never know which and globbering is thus kept to a minimum.”
