An Amazon package arrived last night. This is not surprising in my house, Mr. Lina is a frequent customer. But he needed to tell me that my Christmas present was in there. Why, I don't know, I would have ignored it assuming there was some Cthulhu or board game something or other. You know what I think it is (given that it's the only thing I asked for - with reminders when it did release)?
Tee hee. The box (still unopened by Mr. Lina) is sitting in the living room right now laughing at me. Bah. As excited as I am about getting this for Christmas, I think I'd rather not know it was in the house at this moment.
Today is going to be a crazy day. I will get back to Part 2 of New Orleans (there is much more food to come) and I have TWO completed Sorbettos to post about (wearing one at the moment), but, it's crazy day and this post is just to let off some steam while I wait for data to run.
I'm going to try a little good news/bad news...
Bad news... couldn't sleep last night, too much to do today, too much on my mind. Went to bed at 12 (about a half hour later than usual) but it was 1 before I fell asleep and Mr. Lina and I were both awake at 4am.
Good news... when I did finally decide to not hit snooze again, I actually felt awake. Sometimes it takes a while before I really feel alert.
Bad news... ham was still frozen this morning. It was suppose to go in the slow cooker.
Good news... gave me time to make chicory coffee (new addiction since NOLA) and put my lunch together while it was defrosting in the microwave.
Bad news... car needed gas, late start to the day was even later.
Good news... Took the toll highway to try and speed up my trip to work, so it was at least more enjoyable than the first half of my drive usually is.
Bad news... accident closer to my workplace, so any time gained was subsequently lost.
Good news... no real upside, I was just late. But I did get to work early enough to get one of the last 3 parking spots in my usual lot.
Bad news... forgot my pass at home, must be in my other coat.
Good news... it's warm enough today to wear my light blue leather coat that doesn't sit well done up. They say it's going to be 9C today. Pretty impressive for November.
Bad news... I don't enjoy dealing with the person I am doing project work for today.
Good news... I'm going to be learning about restaurants for the project, so it should be vaguely interesting, a change from consumer packaged goods anyhow. And the sooner it's done the sooner I'm heading home because...
Good news... Coco Love Alcorn is coming to my house tonight along with her husband and her 14 month old daughter. There's going to be a baby (well, toddler) in my house tonight. Mr. Lina is very excited about that. There is no bad news that goes along with that (well, until the toddler leaves).

So even with crappy stuff blocking my way today, it's going to be a freakishly good day because I say so. Coco is awesome, there will be toddlers in the house, we have over 20 people saying they are coming tonight so I'm not stressing about attendance and it's one of our guests birthdays so there will be a surprise cake. :)
