Dad Without Electricity, post-Hurricane Sandy

Me:
do you want me to take your iPad, iPod or phone to work to charge?
Dad:
No. Because I need my music. Then I'd really have nothing left.

Today was a good day. 

When it rains it pours, excuse my cliche slip, and I’m handling my umbrella with tired hands. So I’ll take the slightest of good days. 

Went to bed happy, and that always lends well to waking up on the right side of the bed. (or the left, depending on your sleeping arrangement. Just be sure to roll off on the sunny side.)

My best friend surprised me with flowers and my favorite vanilla soy chai latte at work. Good start!

I had a great, uplifting conversation with my manager regarding future opportunities. And it was a relaxing day at work.

My Kindle came in the mail! 

After work, I ran for 60 minutes straight - and felt on fire, could have kept going but, alas, it was dark and the trail closes at dusk. 

Mid-run, I remembered I had yesterday’s leftover heath bar crunch frozen yogurt at home - and a kindle waiting! 

Came home to a quiet house and my old, furry best friend, who ate his dinner without puking it up for the first time in a week. 

Today was manageable, so today was a good day. And I felt like sharing that with the world.

Cheers to tomorrow!

I love this idea and want it to happen - and happen often.

Dad on 10,000 Maniacs

(These Are The Days by 10,000 Maniacs comes on the radio)
Dad:
This band, they all wear nametags when they practice. Natalie Merchant, she was number 97.
Me:
Oh yeah? Then how'd they get to 10,000?
Dad:
Well, they were having a concert and they had everyone come on stage. And then it was like that country show in Indianapolis. The stage collapsed. And there were 10,000 people on it. And they all went nuts, like maniacs.
Me:
And then what happened?
Dad:
Then the band broke up and that was the end of the 10,000 Maniacs.
