The first day back to work after a three-day weekend usually sucks, but...

today must be an exception. I woke up in a good mood before my alarm went off (probably because I took a pill last night and went to bed at 10:30 instead of the usual 1 a.m.). I'm starting to get excited about my upcoming trip to NYC (for an essay writing workshop next week) instead of all tense and anxious about having to fly there. I'd been in my office less than an hour when an anonymous messenger-type-person dropped off a print of a Betty Boop photo I fell in love with last week (thanks, Jason!). My friend Mindy is in town this week for Spoletians. We're finally all moved in and my new office rocks. And I think the Nicorette gum I've had "parked" in my mouth all morning is working.

What more could one ask for?

  1. I take partial credit for your extra zip this morning (shared soundtrack with particular meaning...). I'm burning a copy for you now. And! I'm adding the mix version of that Sia song you, Nikki, and I went nuts over. The mix is the bomb.

    Ahem:

    Back in black, I hit the sack,
    I've been too long, I'm glad to be back!
    Yes, I'm let loose from the noose,
    That's kept me hangin' about!
    I keep a-lookin' at the sky 'cause it's gettin' me high,
    Forget the hearse 'cause I'll never die!
    I got nine lives, cat's eyes,
    Each and every one of them is wonderin' why!

    (oooo... now I'm looking at that cat photo again. Cracks me up!)

  2. Lunch with Aleigh over sushi in NYC! Rock on, sister.

    Ida - I don't know why I completely blanked on listening to Back in Black on the way to work this morning. So many props to your bad ass soundtrack!

  3. I do love Ambien. Good luck with the Nicorette--it worked for Biffle at one point, and he didn't smoke for three years (before he decided to start up again in preparation for grad school).

  4. AC/DC in the morning - it's better than milk.
