Did anyone have a good day today?

    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.

    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.

    Not everyone of us starts the day with a pint of carrot juice, Evo.

    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:
