View Full Version : the positive vibes thread

02-24-2009, 01:08 PM
Well, sense I'm in an unusually good mood (for a tuesday), and I'd like to keep it that way, and because a lot of people look like they need to be cheered up, let's start a thread where the only things that can be said are good things, news, feelings, profession of love for other board members and moderators (we love you Fury Man Boobs).

I'll start-
good news- a friend I haven't talked to in over a year randomly IMed me this morning, that surprised me and made me quite happy.
more good news- I think I may have found a church I truly belong in... it may be too early to tell, Sunday was my first time going, but there was just a spirit there, I can't really explain it, and the minister, great guy, he actually takes the time to meet with every visitor who is there for the first time one on one after the service, the people are friendly, and most important, they are accepting.

good feelings- I actually feel quite well about the test I have to take today... I did well on the homework and did a good deal of studying. I can do this

professions of love- all of you... when I needed help you were there... I can never thank you all enough for that, I only hope one day it will be possible for me to even come close to returning the favor (but I doubt that's possible, I don't think I could do nearly as much as you guys have). Thank you.

please lets keep this one going... even if you are having a shitty day, think of something good that's happening... hey, maybe just thinking about it will make your day better.

Great idea for a thread :D

-I got a princess wand last night. It lights up. I don't know why, but it made me giggle the rest of the night and I am still amused by it.
-My sister's husband and I are at least passably getting along now instead of me just tollerating him.
-I've been getting better at not only hanging out with a bigger variety of people, but hanging out at home more like I have been wanting to.
-I've been planning out my money a bit better as far as with the big things I want to get. It means that I get to build another computer for when I get the projector.
-Dad and I have been bonding lately and it's been really nice.

it's pancake day and I like pancakes (proper thin pancakes with lemon and sugar, not those thick doughy monstrosities that americans call pancakes)

I'm having doughy monstrosities. I mean pancakes.
My tattoo is healing well.
My parents sent me money for my birthday (which was yesterday).

My parents sent me money for my birthday (which was yesterday).

happy (belated) Birthday :D

more great news, the test I thought was today is really tomorrow... and today we are working on case problems in class, which is great fun because we get to debat case law.

eta- I got to argue on my opinion on Cusano v. Horipro Entertainment Group... as someone who likes KISS that brings me warm and fuzzy feelings (even if I did have to disagree with Vinnie Vincent)

-I got to watch Sailor Moon in Japanese (subtitled in English) until I couldn't stand it anymore. Yay broadband internet! (and goofy interests! :ashamed:)

-The cat found my lap very comfy earlier. I was pleased. (She's been very snuggly lately, and I'm not even her person.)

-CS.com is awesome. Awesome people, awesome mods, ...just all around awesome. Thanks for being here. You make me smile.

My youngeset (step but I hate that word) Daughter still loves me even though her dad dragged her across the country to live far away from me.

Okay, I grump a lot but I'm grateful for what my Husband and I have.

We have our house. It's paid for. We have no debt. That's a wonderful thing to be able to say these days,

We have excellent memories of diving and walking out to town and making our own meals on Bonaire.

We have memories of going down a coal mine at the Chatterly-Whitfield Mining Museum.

We have memories of working a narrow-boat on the canals in England and Wales. I remember buying fresh vegetables and flowers from householders who had canal-side stands and cobbling together a decent lunch with a loaf of home-made bread bought from another stand. With some salad, some good mustard and a tin of corned beef, we were set.

I remember walking at least a half-mile across a cow-pasture (Always look down when walking in one of those) to get to a Tesco for supplies.

I remember the young man who grabbed my legs and pulled me down when I wasn't quite heavy enough to counterbalance the lift bridge on the canal when my Husband was taking the boat through.

"Thank you, Sir."

"No problem, Ma'am." A tip of his hat and he was gone on his way.

One night on the Welsh Canals, we had our Dinner in a pub. There was a social hall below us. We were treated to a rehearsal of a very good Welsh Choir while we enjoyed our dinner. How much better can things get than that?

I remember buying fresh strawberries, lamb chops, asparagus and new potatoes in a little market in Wales. I took the bus back to where out boat was tied up and we had a wonderful meal. We ate on the shore of Lake Ellesmere. All the Rhodedendrons were in bloom. When I read about Harry Potter summoning his Patronus, that is the lake I see.

We've also had many other wonderful times abroad. We've been through the Panama Canal. We've visited Gibraltar several times. We've been to Alaska several times. We've gone to Hawaii. We've taken a train from London to Inverness. On many wonderful ships we've sailed from New York, Brooklyn, Dover, Barcelona, Genoa, Southampton. Vancouver, Miami, San Diego,and Port Everglades.

We've had a wonderful life and we will continue to enjoy our lives. I hope everyone here will be able to have at least some of the fun we have enjoyed. you deserve it.

Yay, despite having a physical distraction sitting across from me in the testing center I ended up getting a 94% on the test I had to take before (which means that the physical distraction was an added bonus rather than a detractor ;) )

02-25-2009, 06:52 PM
had a dr appt today, my baby is healthy and moving and kicking a lot.

02-25-2009, 06:53 PM
-For a Wednesday (usually our busy day), today has been nothing.
-Boss bought us lunch today
-I have a new reading plan (which book series I'll be reading in the next week or so) so I don't feel lethargic reading wise.
-Last night I got to celebrate Lady's birthday with her which was a lot of fun.
-Despite my war on socks, I may have found a website that has tons of awesome fun ones that I would enjoy

I did better on a test.

I finally completed all of my make-up work. I'm all caught up!

I haven't been able to talk to Plaidman for a while because his phone dropped into a mop bucket at work. Right now, I am talking to him on Yahoo Messanger! Happiness abound!

I'm getting my sister a hamster for her birthday and I also got a gas station to put Happy Birthday (McGoddess's sister) on their sign.

Hanging out with my friend,Tattoo on Saturday.

When i got out of school today, I took my coat off because it got so warm!

Today I got vindication on my boss... he was bitching at me for not getting a deposit/incidental cc from a guest (I looked at their profile and thought I saw a cc on file when they didn't).

Want to guess what I found when I looked even closer at her profile :D
We're still holding a deposit for her from her last stay 2 weeks ago, so in fact I should not have gotten either a CC or deposit because we still have one from her :D

eat it boss.

-I got my work tests done! Woohoo! Those were stressing me out like crazy.
