Re: The good things thread

Good things? Well, I just got this and thought I'd share. Got an email from the University with marks from an assignment I completed a couple of weeks back. I was tentative opening the email, but did so. Read:

"100 % (The class average was 89% )
A+

You are ranked 1 out of a class of 82"



I tell ya, with another big exam tonight, it's put me in high spirits. Woop woop!

More importantly, where do you live? and is he single? or can I come over just to watch?
1 hour drive from MUC airport. You're welcome to stay with me for a bit. Or I could try to take a photo of him next time he's out in the sun (today it's rainy, though). If you're in LA, I could arrange a meeting, occasionally. He goes there once a year on business. And he's single
I have no idea where that is, but I haven't been to the West Coast in years. Taking care of Mom keeps me close to home in rural North Carolina. I love my little slice of heaven in the country.

I'm a little bit off the west coast, I'm afraid. About 6000 miles east of Greensboro NC

Congrats, StarMan! Awesome result!

Oops, I don't think I'll be visiting any time soon. I think that may be more than a day drive.

Wow, great going -- what're you going to do with all the time on your hands? Let's just hope the government stays true to form and keeps those checks rolling in.


Ah, the good things. How about food?
* A red pear, perfectly ripe and chilled from the refrigerator... best sweetness a tree fruit can give.
* Avocados when they're becoming soft... slice open and eat as-is. The creamy taste--divine.
* An egg cooked just enough so that the yolk is no longer runny but still kinda gooey. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper, with a touch of paprika, then eat. So delicious.
* Fresh baked bread with crispy crust, sliced up hot and then butter spread over that quickly melts. Ahhhhhh....

Re: The good things thread

Does this count?

Hubby and I were visiting my Mom, 250 miles from our house, when at 11 pm, we got a call from our alarm company that our front door alarm was triggered!! Immediately wide awake and pacing, I was on the phone with the alarm company, our local police, the alarm company again, another part of the alarm company, etc. Hubby was calling his family to get them over to our house and see if anything was wrong, as various family members live within 2 miles of our house.

We were both livid, worried about our house, etc. His brothers waited a bit, then entered--after I gave the alarm company their descriptions so the cops wouldn't shoot them. I didn't need to worry about that--the cops never did show up since this was "only" a house. But the brothers were able to confirm that the alarm glitched--THAT'S THE "GOOD NEWS"--and our house was untouched. Our big iMac and its backup were still in place, and all the cels I call my husband's "Animation Museum" were still on the walls. Everything else could be replaced, but the cels are one-of-a-kind and all our photos are on the iMac and backup.

Then Hubby was pissed at the alarm company, took my phone and started yelling at them. At which point I took the phone back and (relatively) calmly told the employee that this was why I handle such things.

So, it was good news, right? At least imo. Our house was safe and his brothers were reliable and (imo) brave to go into the house, unsure if it was empty or not.

Re: The good things thread

that counts absolutely!! Anything good counts!
Congratulations at not having been burglared and at having such nice relatives.

My good thing for the day: the weather is decent (cold but sunny), the birds sing, I went on a 2 hour walk this morning and sniffed the first apple blossoms (bestest scent in all the world!!), rescued a little snake from a dog (only to get pissed on by the snake and licked by the dog LOL) and I bought 3 little crotcheded balls at the fairtrade shop yesterday which I'll use to learn juggling =)
And I'm sipping the 3rd cup of peppermint tea, made from my own peppermint that I grow in a bucket on my terrace =)
Now, if I got rid of my headache and if lovely Peter Wingfield would ask me to marry him it'd be the perfect day!
