    1. Got Roto-Rooted.

    2. The guy recognized me! And remembered more about his previous visits to the house than I did.

    3. It's a good excuse to start spring-cleaning in the laundry room.

    today is filled with outsized awesomeness.

    went for a run this morning, the fourth time this week.
    You should have seen the Italian Cold Cut Sub I just had for lunch.
    Got the stuff to grill pizzas for dinner tonight. mrooowmff.
    My new pen and 2 bottles of ink showed up at work right before lunch (ordered Wednesday- thanks Goulets!)
    Got to look at an awesome light-up globe from 1958-1960. I love globes.
    Looking forward to a weekend doing new stuff at the Awesomecon in DC. Snagged a free hotel room, heading down there after pizza tonight.

    Congratulations you lucky devil, use it responsibly.
    The most responsible use would be to give it to me!
    "What are moon-letters?" asked the hobbit full of excitement. He loved maps, as I have told you before; and he also loved runes and letters, and cunning handwriting, though when he wrote himself it was a bit thin and spidery.

    1. Damned good colleagues who step in and help when my stupid arthritic knee is acting up, as it did today.

    2. Sunshine and spring weather, birds singing and leaves finally popping up on bushes and trees.

    3. Finding a wooden wine box that's perfect for my inks and cartridges collection. Satin lined, even.

    1. I found a replacement for British Racing Green so close that three of us had to look at it in natural light to tell the difference.
    2. There are only 11 more research papers to grade by this weekend.
    3. My son and I cooked supper together.
