Monday is for Happy Things

Wheeee! , Wheeee!

* I'm actually in a shockingly good mood this morning.

* The paper is coming along! It's actually almost done! Where it is: Part 1: 10% (but more of it written in my head; this is the 4-page introduction), Part 2: 100%, Part 3: 85%, Part 4: 99%, Part 5: 75%. Yay. I'm hoping to get all those numbers to 100% tonight. Then I just have to make a few PowerPoint slides tomorrow night and I'm set.

* I'm not sick of my topic. I'm planning to read more about it after I finish the paper, even. (The assignment focuses on locating sources, rather than actually reading them all.)

* I got a lot of knitting done over the weekend, too. The Mason-Dixon kimono is almost done, and I think it will be cute, even though my roommate called it "very Picasso" at one point and asked if it was for an alien baby.

* I actually got to bed at a reasonable hour last night, and therefore managed to get up at a reasonable hour, and had dropped off my car with the car people and was at my desk by eight.

* To discover that the application we do all our work in is down. Nice relaxing way to start a Monday. So I just reordered my Netflix queue, and I've been catching up with e-mail and Bloglines.

* There's a bit of a break in the heat. It's still hot, but not unbearably so; there's a nice breeze and it's cooling off at night. Hallelujah. Yesterday I was inside working on the paper all day and I didn't even have to turn on a fan. Of course, this means I've convinced myself that it's "almost fall." Shush. Let me enjoy my delusion.

* Cherry chocolate chip ice cream. I don't normally like cherry-flavored stuff much, but this stuff is YUM. No, I haven't tried Cherry Garcia yet. Yes, I'm planning to.

* My birthday is a week from today!!!

Ben and Jerrys now makes a pre-bottled shake. Try the Cherry Garcia bottle shake before you try the ice cream, it's so much better in liquid form! I'll see if I can find it for you.

Happy early birthday!! Do you have fun plans??

Glad to hear that the heat is breaking and that the paper is nearing the end. :)

Happy early birthday! Barely stayed a July baby, eh?

Yuck, cherries. I think the sickly childhood & all the cherry flavored medication did me in.

I keep having the exact same thought about the weather -- we had all of our windows open last night, and when we woke up it was quite chilly in the bedroom. Which instantly caused thoughts about warm sweaters, fall leaves, hot tea.... and then I remembered it's July.
Happy almost birthday!

Happy Birthday, fellow Leo!
