So far this week I've almost failed two exams and I have another two later today. So, I figured a happy thread would be in order! What's made you smile today?

New filling in my front tooth, I look much better when smiling now.

My daughter visited me at work today. :smile:

She's doing a presentation on satellite operations for her public speaking class and I had a couple things at work that would help her, so she came by to pick them up. Always fun to show someone around and play with the toys I have at work.

She picked up one of our satellite models, plus I had a graph showing the growth of space debris, including the periodic cleaning done every 11 years thanks to solar max (her graph just didn't show much detail). The slide after that shows debris that made it back to Earth intact. Now everyone in her class will be terrified of 2011 - 2012 (the next solar max). :biggrin:

It looks like it'll be a fun presentation. I liked the Star Trek music and Star Wars style of text on the title slide. :rofl:

At least one of you is taking life way too seriously.
I've had gas for eight years.

Too many to list.

I'll say 3.

Found the trip package I wanted just dropped under $800, when I was aiming for $1000.
I may be granted an extra $2000.
I did my graduate seminar.

I usually have 5 everyday atleast.

The fair's in town. This morning I dragged my *** out of bed early enough to take a wander round the place before work. It's quite a surreal experience, being in a place like that as practically the only person there. Left me smiling for a while.

Later on a friend visited me at work.

Pretty good day, all said :smile:

My car died today in a CVS store parking lot. Not in a very good neighborhood. AS I was calling everyone I knew for help, a really nice young man came to my aid, and got my car running again, AND he refused money. I'm still smiling!:smile:

It was a good day but unethical people made me cry at the day end

I encountered two!

I) Cheating - Someone tried to persuade me to provide him the answers and he would make sure I get 90s in that course. He wanted me to meet someone at some place etc ... He wasn't clear and I refused before he could tell me the details.
II) Someone else deleted all the material that I had uploaded for helping my class. I had shared that account with all class.

And, I seriously lost faith in people once again! :cry:

It looks like a big mess and I wish I could clean it. (I really don't get why people have to be so unethical and evil)
