After reading the counter thread about terrible things happening to decent people and subsequently ruining their day, a "pick me up" is in order.

So, why was your day awesome today? What realization, news, or experience made today stand out above the average.

Today I learned I shattered the curve on my midterm and got a free lunch, and my Wednesday class was canceled so I can drive home for thanksgiving tonight and avoid the traffic tomorrow.

Today I got to decide between two pretty stellar offers from companies I interviewed with over the past few weeks; soon I'll have a much better job!

I'm a teacher, and today was a snow day. It doesn't get much better than that.

Did I... did I miss anything important?

I was a student, and it was a snow day. That's equally good.

I took the day off work (I'm a teacher) to hang with my kids.

Today 2 vinyls arrived - Minus The Bear's Planet of Ice and Dear And The Headlights' Small Steps, Heavy Hooves.

Also had no work to do, so I chatted with my boss about strippers for an hour.

I love Planet of Ice. Knights is one of my favorite songs of all time.

Today was awesome because my dad surprised me with tickets to the basketball game tomorrow for my birthday

Oh man, grownups and their sleazy conversations!

Does it feel like your love life has gotten a bit stale? Do you suspect that your partner is no longer attracted to you? Why not do what the ancient assyrians did and smear crushed Lobsta Fahts on their cock before applying a thin layer of Iron Dust on your Junk. They won’t be able to resist you.

My Chemical Romance's album dropped yesterday and I picked it up today and I can't wait to listen to it!!

I was forced to move offices at work. I thought it was a bad thing until I was lead to a bigger office with Oak furniture instead of Ikea wood. It also has a whole wall of windows not just one window!

Got my car back from the shop, and my bike back from the police station.

Having no transportation was no good, and now everything's all better.

I just finished my fifth and final grueling end of semester exam. It's summer here and I am planning on spending the next 3 months lifting, tanning at the beach, getting laid and generally rejoicing in thine youth.

Mine is pretty mundane, but it's the last day of work and classes before my SO and I head to my parent's for Thanksgiving. I'm so excited for food and family.

No work tonight, it's payday, and I spent all afternoon in the shed with my doggies, fixing bikes and generally being a big manly man.

This girl who compulsively lies told me a string of the funniest lies yet today. I had a whole lot of laughs at her expense.

I got invited to do a few minutes at my first real comedy show. People will be paying for tickets but I don't think anyone but the host gets paid because it's a little shoestring theater but this is a big step up for me after doing a few months of open mics. Preparing and looking forward to it!

I found out that someone is getting me an iPad for Christmas this year. It's the last thing I would ever buy for myself, but I guiltily really want one.

Over the last 3 weeks I've been working with our network guys to implement a new firewall system, and each time it's caused issues that they hadn't been able to fix (nor find the cause of).

Finally, after weeks of troubleshooting, and speaking with the vendor, they got a fix...and surprisingly, it WORKED! So officially, my last late night at work helping them get things implemented and tested was last night, and so far both buildings on our campus are working great.

On top of that I got my new machine upgraded with Windows 7 Enterprise (been using 7 Pro at home and LOVE it) and so far it's been working fantastic. Everything is so much smoother than it was on XP so now I can actually get poo poo done without the lag my old PC had.

Tell me, Aldo, if I were sitting where you're sitting, would you show me mercy?

1.) I woke up and got a BJ.

2.) It's a 4 day weekend.

3.) I get to leave work at 3PM today.

4.) Ordered MGS4 a few days ago and should be delivered this afternoon, its out for delivery!

Alone in my office at work (usually have a partner who is quite distracting but she is on vacation). Taking on her share of work also means there is plenty to keep me occupied, so the day is going by pretty quickly.

Takin' a dirt nap with baby Jesus

My day has been awesome and ruined at the same time. It is ruined because I have been sick all week and I went in to work but was too sick to stay and taking the bus home in the middle of the day takes forever.
It is awesome because now I am at home cozy and warm in my pajamas eating chicken noodle soup while it is cold and snowing outside.

He is real Super Sand

Word spread around work today that after the first of the year our schedules should be changing from 4 days of 10 hour shifts to 6 days of 10 hour shifts. Most people I work with are not excited about this, but I'm stoked about it. And as a bonus I found out that the 6th day will be double time.

Got time and a half pay today and yesterday just for driving in the snow and showing up to work on my regular schedule. (Washington State)

Still clownin'

Mostly because I was not ingested into a jet engine today.

when they're yours you'll love them

Started soaking dried fruits in cinnamon-infused brandy a few days ago with only a vague goal of "vegetarian mincemeat thing that gets you drunk and takes care of your monthly fiber needs." Today I figured out what I'm doing with it: Upside-down mincemeat spice cake!

Thanksgiving Friday is gonna be awesome.

It's SQUARE, motherfuck!

I hung out a work aquaintance's place for the first time. He lives with his father, who was there with some friends who are all life-long musicians and play in a popular house band here in Tampa.
I jammed with them for a few hours and they were genuinely impressed, which felt awesome, and now they want me to join their group, which kicks even more rear end. I've been looking to play some music down here, and now I've stumbled upon a solid group with a steady gig schedule.
