Seeing that we got a thread all about going on about te bad things that happen to you, why not start one about the good things. This isn't just about the good things that happens to you, but the good things you do that makes you happy.

If you lost your keys and finally find them the next day, here's where you celebrate it. If you bought a block of cheese and later at home you see they only charged half of what it's worth, celebrate it here. If you come up with something ingenious and act upon it, and feel proud about it, tell us here.

:shifty I was too lazy to wash my car yesterday, and today the rain just pours down like nobody's business....so I did the next best thing to actually washing my car. I pulled it out of the garage and let God wash it for me. Just look at the dirt go!

I was re-checking a cover letter to send wtih one of my stories and noticed I had misspelled a word. I mentioned the editor's "pubication." It has now been amended to "publication" as I have totally no interest in her private parts.

A close shave, indeed.

Bad news: I passed out while getting the kids and me ready this morning. Good news: I consequently get the day off work.

I was running off to lunch yesterday at work and a lady asked me if I worked there. I said yes, so I did. And I managed to get her to buy a lot more than she had originally planned, and I also rung her up, and upsold some premium acrylic glass! YES! Go Me!

I have naniamo bars. I'll probably gain a couple of pounds, but I'll live in chocolatey bliss for a couple of days. :D

The radiology attending at the teaching hospital is an asshole. He plays favorites and picks scapegoats. One of his favorite things to do is pit the favorites against the scapegoats during rounds. Of course, he's also a brilliant radiologist and kisses the asses of all the hospital administrators and tenured professors insuring that anything any of the students says will be written off as an "over-reaction". We learn a lot from him, but it would be nice to get the information without the high price of his bullshit.

Now he is on vacation and we have a different attending radiologist for rounds who actually knows how to behave like a human being. My last week of radiology will be bullshit free!

Yay!

I was cleaning my apartment and I picked up this pile of filthy rags that the last tenant left behind and a ton of weird-looking of bugs crawled out. (Like the stuff you see when you flip over a rock.)

I was wearing rubber gloves. WIN!

I'm not sure if that's even the grossest thing they left in the apartment.

I think Spaz should write a book.

Homeowner's insurance sent us a check to have our heavily water-damaged basement fixed. It was for more money than they led us to expect.

There was some sort of fist-sized lump of mold/mushroom/vanilla pudding growing behind the washer. (Of course I cleaned behind the washer.) That beats the bugs for sure.

Apartment smells waaaay better now then it did a week ago!

We're having a lovely patch of summer weather and the naturopathic IV infusion of vitamens and minerals killed my 3 day long migraine. Wooo!
