A Challenge for every TFP'r

I want us to try to do something good. I see so much negativity (mostly from my own posts) that I'm thinking I either need to see some good things someone can say or existing is just a waste.

So, everyone who posts.. say one positive thing about your day. everyday you can.

have the best day ever? explain. did your day suck but damn that glass of coffee was good tell us.

So, can you guys do it? Post a single positive note for your day?

I did nothing today. I didn't have to go anywhere, see anyone. Nothing.

I cleaned a bit, but was mostly just lazy. I could, because Mrs. Tinfoil was a couple towns away with her friends.

Ahh... a day to myself.
Get off your fuckin cross. We need the fuckin space to nail the next fool martyr.

I found out yesterday my boss wants to send me to school for a year on the company's (non-profit organization's) dollar, while keeping me on part time and finishing my apprenticeship. He should be able to get me some unemployment insurance too.

I've been on cloud nine since I found this out since I've had problems blanacing a full time job and full time school before, not to mention trying to scrape up money for school, it's the biggest break I've gotten in my life.

This morning I woke up with a lovely dream involving me having jungle fever. I also went outside while it was nice and talked to my mom.
"I went shopping last night at like 1am. The place was empty and this old woman just making polite conversation said to me, 'where is everyone??' I replied, 'In bed, same place you and I should be!' Took me ten minutes to figure out why she gave me a dirty look." --Some guy

I made some batter coated fries for dinner today, and they were amazingly good, so much so that I ate 3 plates full. Best I've ever had.

I sure as shit did! I completed the order on my new computer which is about a bajillion times better than the one Im using now, and a lot cheaper than I had been convinced was the cheapest I could go for, early this morning. It arrives August 9th.

...but that's not even the start of it...

The day became the best day EVER when I got a call from my friend Steve. Steve had been my best friend since elementary school, but I hadn't really seen him since high school... he went to college two years early and did really well for himself. He's now a distributor for Carrier air conditioning (a job that he got partially through his uncle but mostly through working his ass off)... he gets stores to outbid other stores in advance sales, that kind of thing. So anyway, word got around to him that my fiancee was pregnant and that I was stuck in a job that I was getting away with murder at, but wouldn't be for long. Turns out, he had an open position beneath him, and he offered it to me. I didn't hesitate in accepting the offer for a second. There are so many plusses to it that it will be hard to name them all. The major ones are REALLY major though. One of them is that I'll be working for a great friend of mine. I have hated every supervisor I've had at my current job, so this is a huge plus. Another is that my pay could potentially be DOUBLED at this job. Another on top of that is that I don't need all that much experience... Steve says that I can pretty much be trained on-the-job, the only reason that people with business majors get this job is that it looks good on the resumee. The undeniable best part of it, however, is this: most of the time this job is run over the phone, so except for the occasional meeting and even less frequent business trip, I can work from home. This is just one of the greatest things that's ever happened to me... instead of working at a lousy job during the day at UPS, I can work at a much less-lousy (apparently) job at home and watch the baby. I'm absolutely ecstatic... after this I swear I'd take a bullet for Steve. He is just a godlike figure to me now.

And to top it all off, I saw Motorhead, Dio, and IRON MAIDEN tonight. In...fucking...credible show... and in-fucking-credible way to end a perfect day.
Your arms are broken!

I dont' generally go around telling of my good deeds.. as for my life tho? as much as a day might suck, I strive to live a happy life... So I could probably daily post a lot of junk (If I can remember it all).. As for now, I'm about to sleep, that alone is cool.

Whats positive? I got 4th twice in lazer tag, I achieved a 62.5% accuracy, 6th in the solo game.. I had over 5 people out to get me(big bonus in any FPS.. especially the real life games )

That was positive Showing how good you are points you out... which makes for a conversation starter, which leads to making more friends!

It is a beautiful, sunny warm day and I have no obligations. My chores are done, I have no appointments, I can do anything I want. I have a home, there are flowers in a bowl on the table, and I just drank a delicious cup of jasmine tea my in-laws brought back from China. I am blessed in so many ways, to have been born where and when and who I was.

Today, for the first time, my in-laws invited me to come with them to meet their friends. (They've been my in-laws for about 3 weeks now...)

That was cool. It means I'm really part of the family.
And at the end of the dinner, my father-in-laws friend gave me 2 thumbs up. He didn't know I noticed, because he spoke Chinese, but it's a real good feeling when you know you've been accepted 100 percent.
