I feel as though I've been a Negative Nelly lately. And so I give you...(drumroll, please!)--

Things that make me smile:

* The girl at the bookstore who told me she liked my hair, even though I felt like I was having a bad hair day. No, seriously, I had just gotten done telling Ann about how I struggled this morning with a huge piece that didn't want to lay down flat, no matter how much flat ironing or product I subjected it to.

* Discovering the recipe for Cafe Rio's sweet pork and their creamy house dressing. I'm probably never going to that place and paying $8.49 for a salad again.

* Going to town on chopped-down limbs of a tree with a pair of pruners. Talk about getting out some frustration! I showed those suckers that I meant business! (Thanks, Grandma!)

* The Killers concert coming up this Saturday. Brandon Flowers--in some strange way, I find you attractive. I can't help but love a man with musical talent.

* Being told that I helped 'carry the team' in a game called Buzzword on Sunday night. ("I feel like we should high five about that!")

* Getting a notification from Facebook that a cute guy has written on my wall.

* Only having THREE new studies go to my board meeting this week. Sixteen last month...karma really does even things out, I think.

* Understanding cultural literacy references in the book I'm currently reading, The Eyre Affair. People have hilarious names (Thursday Next, Braxton Hicks, etc.) ...and in it, everyone loves literature. It's truly a whimsical delight, and I can't wait to finish it.

* The chef at the Market Street dessert case last night who pulled out the tray of strawberry tarts and chocolate-covered strawberries and whispered, "We just make new ones fresh in the morning...do you want one?" Uh, does a fat kid love candy? YES! Free dessert.

I needed this.

Heck, I needed to read your blog today.
You always know what to write. I too love finding good food that can be made at home. Post something about the concert afterwards, will you? Not all of us are lucky enough to go. :)

Hmm, I'm trying to remember if I've written on your Facebook wall lately.

Thanks, Annie. It's always nice to have something to smile about. You are one who always makes me smile.
