The GOOD: my Eurail pass came in the mail! :D (right on schedule)

The GOOD: just sent my traveling companion an email... if he okays the hostels and tours I've selected, then the trip is ready to go :)

The GOOD: dude! I'm moving to I R E L A N D ! ! ! in two weeks! (after visiting Italy, France, and parts of Germany)

The BAD: not getting work done on other projects

The BAD: two of those being research projects

The GOOD: the work required there is small... and I actually did get a little done there today... so... progress continues

The GOOD: when that's all done, I can sit back QA test and crash my computers with bad C code while on vacation in Italy :P ... and on the planes... and on the trains (hey, where's the train thread? I have need of it :P) ...and in France... and on the train back and forth from Germany...

The GOOD: my friend just rubber stamped said plans (das war schnell (unfortunately, that's practically the full extent of my German... so that part of the trip will be... interesting :P))

Oops, should have been more clear in my words. I move back to campus on Saturday and I'm not sure how to feel about it. There's someone I'd like to avoid but I know will want to see me.

The Good: My momma's pudding cake is baking in the oven!
The Good: I got my new glasses in as well!

THE BAD: Just found out that there's an upcoming movie in which the main characters are owls. Cedric finally got his revenge. Who greenlit this thing? An owl outbreak is an even more terrifying concept than a zombie outbreak.

EDIT: Or worse - ZOMBIE OWLS!!!

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.
