Today seems to have been a pretty bad day for a lot of people. Humanino wins the prize for the worst day with the smashing of his PhD project. Evo, franz and motai are sick with the flu or flu-like something. I got word that a manuscript was rejected (compared to everyone else's day, it doesn't seem so bad...it happens and isn't the end of the world). dduardo's favorite radio station was kicked off the air. Another friend I talked to at about 11:15 was still scrambling to meet a midnight deadline that just got dropped on him yesterday, and hadn't even stopped for dinner. I know of at least one other person who had a bad day.

So, if anyone out there had something good happen to them today, please share and cheer us up! A little good news to cheer about goes a long way.

I got home from lab the same day I left home !! :biggrin:

This hasn't been happening very much lately, so it's a very positive end to the day.

Woo hoo! Some days you have to celebrate the little things. And sometimes having a completely boring, uneventful day is a good thing. :smile:

So your lab is the one to blame! You sucked all the good luck out of the rest of the universe just so nothing would go wrong for you today. :grumpy: I knew you physicists were up to devious things. :tongue2:

Sorry to hear that. :frown: See, now you know, blame Gokul's lab for luck sucking! :biggrin: I'm really looking forward to tomorrow, just so it won't be today anymore. Well, technically, it is a new day here already, but it doesn't count until I've slept and the sun comes up.

:frown: :cry: Horrible, horrible day! It's pretty bad when the best news anyone has is that Gokul got home before midnight and nothing broke.

I had a pretty decent day. We did some shopping earlier, got some bread and juice, my girlfriend bought a book. I cooked myself a pretty good dinner: roasted chicken breast, garlic mashed potatoes, and steamed vegetables. Then I watched the NBA on ESPN and saw the hated Sacramento Queens get robbed at the end. There are few things on TV more fun than watching the Queens whine and cry while losing a heartbreaking game. Although nothing particularly noteworthy occured, I've been happy all day.

Yay! A toast to loseyourname for being happy all day! :biggrin: That dinner sounds yummy! Oh, yeah, that's something good that happened today. I made shrimp scampi for dinner and it came out just right! A side dish of asparagus dipped in the same scampi sauce too...very tasty. :approve: Lots and lots of garlic (at least the vampires should leave me alone tonight).

Well to contribute the general "bad day" stories. My sons pickup was broken into in our driveway, His backpack with a calculator, a Alpine CD Changer and a favorite sweat shirt ran off down the street. Leaving behind a smashed window. Why would anybody break into a beat up '83 Ranger?

well, i had a good day yesterday...i had an ultrasound and we saw the baby, the heartbeat was strong and fast (171 b/min). the tech gave me an official due date of september 20th! with my last child however, i was 9 days early, let's hope this one isn't 9 days early.

Ostensibly to steal your son's backpack (with a calculator), the Alpine CD Changer and sweat shirt. That is one reason why one does not leave stuff in a car in a metropolitan or suburban area.

The perfect start to a perfect day? A big mess of grits, over easy eggs and sausage, smothered with Louisianna hot sauce. :tongue2: Washed down with a half gallon of strong coffee. Now that's a healthy way to start your day!!! :rofl:

That's really great news! Hmm, if the last one was 9 days early, this one has to come 9 days late to keep average due dates on average, right? :biggrin: Well, now you can change your avatar to the current ultrasound photos. (Yeah, I know there's not much to see yet). But aren't ultrasounds just the coolest thing to look at? :cool:

Hmm...breakfast...it's 1 in the afternoon here and I haven't even gotten myself out of bed yet. :biggrin: Now THAT is a good Saturday!!! (Though I can't believe I managed to sleep so late! I flipped the mattress on the bed last night and I think the bed was way more comfortable than it's been in a long time...well, since the last time I flipped the mattress anyway).

No grits for me, but I do have coffee mugs that my sister finally shipped to me (bought them over the holidays while visiting her but couldn't fit them with my luggage) that will fit the equivalent of about 2 normal sized mugs of coffee in them! Definitely coffee coming up soon! Maybe an egg and English muffin to go with it.

Glad I'm not the only one who likes to skip mornings. :tongue: Yeah, if anyone ever showed up here before noon, and I actually woke up to hear the doorbell ringing, they'd get me in PJs and bed hair! :eek:
