A little different:

Five Small Joys From Today:
1 – The flavor of what Hale and Hearty listed as “Boston Baked Bean soup with Smoked Sausage”: it actually reminded me of the baked beans of my youth and the ones I have made.
2 – Hearing my friend George’s voice on the phone as we planned our trip together this weekend. It’s been almost a year.
3 – Actually filing the small heap of papers that had accumulated on my desk
4 – Receiving my dvd of “The Hypnotic Eye”: trashy, quirky, filled with screeching line readings and actresses tearing their own faces off
5 – Being asked to do a job I think is very important. I was surprised that the forces that be would even think to ask me.

  1. Wow. Five Small Joys in One Day = One Hunk of Joy So Big You Better Watch Yourself Crossing the Street Tomorrow Lest You Get Run Over By a Bus For Having Too Much Fucking Joy in Your Life?

    Now I know how Gollum felt.

    I know, I should count my blessings: at least my gums didn’t bleed while flossing today.

  2. See..

    That’s what the exercise was about, getting me out of the maudlin rut of my usual postings…I was reading back over and thinking I sounded like a finicky brat. So I’m trying to shift gears.
    Besides, you know me – always ready to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
    My gums bleed if the eggs are too hard boiled.
