little blue fishy swimming next to me (enjoying his spacious digs)
people bringing me lunch unexpectedly when I've forgotten about a meeting I'm supposed to go to which precludes me running out and getting lunch :p
playing Scrabble with my mom
cool weather day
commiserating with a friend over our dearly departed kitties... :( (but it's comforting to commiserate :))

- catching the first cold I've caught in literally years, and it's a baddie
- (because catching a cold means I might be in remission, it's possible)
- (and people who are in remission don't have to take Methotrexate)
- (and people who don't have to take Methotrexate can gestate)
- Hot Lemon Relief
- a little rat to crawl on my lap and label it Heaven

- odd stuff that sticks in your mind, years later
- people who make that irrational commitment to being a solid friend
- words
- ideas
- the feeling of the self as it dissolves into sleep

trisherina 09-22-2004 02:11 AM

- the sauna's nearly done
- getting a completely unexpected five hundred bucks in the mail (so unexpected that I almost recycled it without opening the envelope)
- Katie safe and sound despite another roam round the neighbourhood courtesy of the carpenter's open door policy
- RatMan and I getting work kudos on the same day
- a binary tartan, nonetheless warm

trisherina 10-13-2004 12:29 AM

okay, five different things, but a chain of events:

- I was supposed to go to a meeting tonight
- I don't want to go to the meeting (it's not an essential deal, just a must-do as a future funding applicant type of thing that I keep putting off), and made no bones about not wanting to go
- I could only have gone to the meeting if I'd left oh, ten minutes ago
- Rat Man knew all of the above, and is still not here
- I think he's "working late" so I can't make it to the meeting with the ironclad excuse (for myself) of not being able to go due to lack of child care

Marriage is a wonderful thing! :D

trisherina 10-16-2004 02:39 PM

- the furnaces got done before it snowed
- I got new tires for the car before it snowed
- I got the Hallowe'en stuff up before it snowed

- I was gonna buy ratboots today anyway

lapietra 10-17-2004 05:24 AM

- it's raining :)
- i live in California, which is one of the only places in the world where it's not insane to have a convertible
- Hobgoblin ale
- my slow bathroom sink is finally fixed
- i know how to fix a slow bathroom sink!

lapietra 10-18-2004 04:24 PM

- it's raining again and the earth smells like fresh green things
- remembered to bring my umbrella
- fishie's still alive and perkily darting around
- yummy breakfast burrito
-*two* cups of coffee :D

amanda 10-20-2004 03:29 AM

the fact I dearly dig those two above people, even though I've only met one of 'em
that I still know how to cook in my inebreatedness
that I get inbreated after two drinks.
the reports are donedonedonedone.
Here comes the sun.

trisherina 10-20-2004 07:14 PM

-having the ratlet come home for lunch, a welcome distraction
-having the RatMan call and check on me
-cupcake papers with candy corns printed all over them
-Dave Brubeck
-amanda's happy inebriation
-emergency meetings with various officials where I presume people will stand up for me... okay, strictly speaking I'm not grateful for that but it's better than people not standing up for me

lapietra 10-20-2004 07:44 PM

- new bed coming! :D (no more bad back!)
- being dug by mandalaness - a fine, fine human being :)
