Like that song I've just implanted in your head (and mine - GAH), which is certainly The Bad. As is a lot of the stuff I've been posting about recently. In an effort to combat my Debbie Downer-ness, here are some good things:
Katie sent me these flowers yesterday. Well, not these particular flowers since this photo comes from the 1-800-Flowers website. Mine are actually much prettier since they're almost entirely bright yellow and deep purple.
A couple of years ago, I sent Katie some flowers when she got some bad news, prompting her to call me, on her blog, "The best boyfriend I never had." Back at you, Katie.
Also among the good: this photo of my now-six-month-old niece, who can sit up on her own, thankyouverymuch, which I have titled Cutest Photo Ever:
Another good thing? Really well-written and intriguing fiction. Tony Delgrosso (Tony_D to you Twitterers) is making his novel Mr. Abernathy available for download for free (FREE!) one chapter at a time. As of today, Chapters One and Two are online. I highly recommend that you get over there and start reading. Trust me, you'll be hooked.
And finally, we have the weather, which is approaching Pleasant. Which works out well since I need to step away from the cover letters and go out among the people to do some errands. And tomorrow, I'll be outside helping to stain the fence at my sister and brother-in-law's house. Provided I am able to tear myself away from the chubby baby cheeks long enough to pick up a brush. If you'll take another look at that photo, I think you'll find that the likelihood of that comes in somewhere around Not Very.
