Happy Weekend!


A chilly late winter weekend is coming up.  That, in and of itself, is a little depressing.  I think many of us are hoping for a quick end to winter.  Be that as it may, let's throw negativity in the trunk for a day and accentuate the positive.  Here is a short and partial list of the things that make me happy.

Cookies n Cream ice cream.

A store clerk/cashier who seems to appreciate your business.

A self serve check-out that is trouble free.

When the gas pump actually spits out a credit card receipt.

Barney Miller.

When someone holds a door open for you.

Getting a human being when you call customer service.

Cats who are thrilled to see you come home from work.

Tom Petty.

When you jump in the car at midnight, and the all-news station from Chicago is booming in on the radio.

Watching Ken Jennings improve with every "Jeopardy!" show he hosts.

In a similar vein, nailing the "Final Jeopardy!" question/answer.

That John Larroquette is still hilarious, even though the show around him isn't.

Cold diet cola and tasty diet peach iced tea.

That elusive solid night of sleep.

French fries.

When the work computer boots up in record speed.

A road without potholes.

When Rock 107's Ten at Ten features 1979.

Old Billy Joel songs.

When my mail actually arrives.

No 2 am line at the cool mini mart.
