Wants to be amused

I'm feeling more out of sorts than usual today. It's nothing specific and I don't particularly want to take up bandwidth whining about it, but I'd love to be distracted by comments about things that are nifty, beautiful, funny, and otherwise happy-making.

I received a very nice compliment yesterday, from my business office liaison: "I was just thinking today how easy you make my life. Everything is always in order and ready for me."

Mike Jittlov has released The Wizard of Speed and Time on BitTorrent.

Griddlers is a fun logic-puzzle site.

I finally earned enough Filthy Lucre in Kingdom of Loathing to acquire a Pompadour'd Puppy familiar.

Yay for the compliment! You deserve it.

And Ooh, WoSaT is almost enough to make me sign up for BitTorrent.

Ha! Me, too.

Do you have any ideas about what to do with a big bunch of neckties other than abandon them at a thrift store. Would you like some?

What was the price range on the R*mi restaurant?

Do you want to know the URL for a somewhat addictive flash game that involved "rolling" a ball through a maze with simulated gravity?

Neckties - You might try asking on craftgrrl. Which is quite distracting and fun. (No thanks, I have too much craft stash as it is.)

Rumi - entrees are in the $20-$30 range IIRC. The veggie entree was $19.

I don't think I want the flash game myself (I have lots of game-type distractions, but I can't afford to get sucked into them right now) but maybe some of the other people reading this entry would want it.

I'm packing for Stitches and all it's yarny goodness!

Toni will be here between 4 and 5 to pick me up. After I introduce her to Polly, (my Kromski Polonaise spinning wheel--a Christmas gift) we are heading out to dinner on our way to Stitches. I'll probably see you around :)

Have fun at Stitches! I'm not going - the hotel sold out before I had a chance to sign up for anything, and I didn't want to schlep back and forth from here. I suppose there's a chance I'll go to the market on Friday, though.

Spinning wheel - lucky you!

Well, Spirit and Shiva are getting along better than I expected.

And I just ordered nuts, chocolate, chocolate-covered nuts, snack mixes, chocolate-covered caramels, and more stuff to take to Minicon. Okay, I'm keeping a few for myself.

Happy Thoughts
By sharing your feelings, you also shared all the wonderful posts from your friends, and reading them put a smile on my face, and helped ease my general malaise.
