Bad/annoying: My phone has disappeared in the house somewhere. And it's on vibrate so I wouldn't be able to hear a ringtone!

Oh no!  Look in the couch cushions, on the computer desk, and in the refrigerator. I've found my phone in stranger places!

Stranger than in the fridge?  That about maxes the strangeness out for me.

It ended up under the driver's seat of Mom's car. I'd run an errand or something right before and it fell out of my pocket. The fridge? I've never heard anyone leaving their phone in there.

The good: I'm feeling pretty happy today
The good: May play or watch old KQ videos in a bit.
The good: I have nothing bad to say. Hooray!

THE GOOD: Relaxing in Sydney
THE BAD: Hotel internet speeds
THE WORSE: How much I'm paying for slow internet
Heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says "Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says "But Doctor...I am Pagliacci." Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.

The GOOD: airfare booked :)
The GOOD: Eurail pass purchased :)
The GOOD: emailed a contact about a potential flat in Galway :)

The GOOD: plans to go see Scott Pilgrim vs. the World tomorrow with a group of friends

The BAD: I wanna make my new character in DDO! ...but I'm trying to wait so that flaky person (stabbed here) can join my
group of friends in game.

Why do I associate with flaky people and people who lack drive, ambition, and purpose since leaving high school?? Oh, right, either (A) they didn't act that way initially or (B) I met them before they were robbed of purpose and ambition... *sigh* ...socializing is for the birds (and the fishes... flocks and schools... yeah)...

The BAD: since I was dealing with trip stuff, I didn't get any research stuff done today
The PLAN: since I'm not going downtown tomorrow, I may pull an all-nighter...

The MAYBE: I might do some of that beta-testing stuff in there too.. if I'm sufficiently cogent/have the patience for it...
