All signs point towards Good!

Sometimes you can just tell that it’s gonna be a good day (whether or not you need to grab your AK as Mr. Cube so eloquently put it years ago...).  Today has all the makings of being a good – dare I say “great”? – one.  Started offwith seeing that my site has a new member, someone who I didn’t directly invite or personally know. (Welcome, Mark!  Good to have you!)

 

Then I opened a brand new bag of espresso beans and made a *large* cup of coffee that has me just at the right level of caffeine-buzz; where you’re right at the edge of bouncy and edgy but just feel all energized and...up.

 

Good vibes continued on the way into work where we are enjoying some terrific Myrtle Beach weather. Low 70s, no humidity, light ocean breezes. This is a day where Ferris would have most definitely have taken off.

 

Then, my iPod was shuffling in rare form.  Since ditching Sirius a few months ago (and they seem to have *finally* gotten the hint that I don’t want to come back after about a dozen phone calls – “Please. Just come back. We’ll waive the reactivation fee and give you 6 months for $20! Come on! Have you seen our stock price lately?”) I have been relying on my 8500 song iPod library to entertain me during my 25 minute car ride into work. This morning, it hit me with a string of three great tunes one right after the other. First was “Lady Don’t Mind” from Talking Heads Little Creatures. This entire album *always* takes me back to a particularly great summer day back in the 80s when I went to the beach with Dan, Colleen and I-had-a-crush-on-you-for-so-long Lynn. (Nostalgic sigh...) Then just when I was nearly lost in reverie, iPod kicked it up ten notches with The Clash’s “Rudy Can’t Fail.” Man, I love that song! As a rule, I hate dancing, but this song makes me want to go out and join a raging, pogo-ing crowd of Manchester United fans on a crazy, victory riot through the streets of London. Then,  just as I was getting ready to pull into work, a mellow number from Dave Matthews Stand Up.

 

Then, I pulled open the store’s mailbox and found 4 checks and no bills. Sweet, and sweet. THEN within minutes of opening the store, this client that has owed us like $8000 for nearly a year comes strolling in. To pay his bill!  And talk about upgrading to a full Control 4 system. Oh, great day,what other amazing things have you in store for me?
