    Today I had an hour-long conversation with my ex-wife. We were able to make it through the hour without a single shred of bitterness or contempt, which is a big deal. She actually needed my permission to hire my attorney who wouldn't grant her his services unless I said it was okay, what with it being a conflict of interest and all that. She has a criminal record, needs it expunged, and my attorney happens to be the guy who's good at this.

    I am in a position of power. I said I'd think about it. What are your current positions of power and/or victories? Why are you feeling great right now?

    Edit: This is pretty much the OPPOSITE of the first world problems thread. Convenient little wins, if that's conceivable.

    I'm not feeling great at all, and haven't had a personal victory in quite sometime.








    I need a drink. :p

    Here's your personal victory from me to you, Armen: Your neckbeard rivals any I've ever seen. I mean that, and I've decided that next time I'm in L.A. I am going to seek a meeting with you and obtain a picture of me touching said glorious neckbeard....if that's cool with you of course.

    Instead of taking care of everyone else, I am going to take care of myself tomorrow. For an hour. At the spa. Yea. And then I will go back to taking care of people :p

    Of course you can touch the beard, Mort.

    I graped a final this morning, being my last actual test forever. Oddly enough, after years of doing horrible at tests with terrible memory, I sat down to this one and busted out legal details with numeric stats and dates, without even having studied. I think my brain has been trolling me all this time.

    How does one take care of themselves at the spa...? If you can give yourself a deep tissue massage you win the "Power" part of the thread, hands down. Or hands behind your back, rather...

    I finally managed to cancel my son's Club Penguin membership, after something like 6 tries.

    I received brownies in exchange for a favor. I had already agreed to do it before knowing there'd be a chocolatey reward. Score!

    I actually do give my calves deep tissue massages 2x a week because standing for 8-10 hours a day takes it toll. I can only massage my own shoulders, no middle back stuff yet. Need moar yoga in order to do that. Or just destroy my shoulder ligaments again.

    I just found out that something I had wanted to happen in an upcoming movie, but didn't think would happen, is actually going to happen.

    So it's part victory/triumph, part I've got to stop always getting spoiled for everything.

    I got out of the house late this morning and was sure I'd be late dropping my daughter off at school but traffic was exceptionally light and we made it.

    I actually received all of the food I ordered and paid for at the McDonalds drive thru. A first. Shakes fists in triumph.

    My puppy relaxed and watched TV with me. Normally she just jumps on me and treats me like a chew toy.

    My laurels are thriving, and a little baby bud is joining the two fresh sprigs that have already grown in addition to the three main central sprigs that I had to begin with.


    And no, I'm not being figurative. I literally have a laurel plant. :p

    My youngest cat, the only one who never goes outside, got out last night, sending my 6-year-old into a "Where's Midnight??" panic this morning (and I was a little worried myself). I told him that cats are pretty good at finding their way home and to wait awhile before being sad. The cat showed up at the back door as I was getting my second cup of coffee.

    I love being right, almost as much as I love having safe pets and happy kids.

    I'm one of three network techs at work. One is in deep **** and the other isn't all that great at his job. If I were to give my two week notice (which I have been considering), they would be in deep **** with staff depth.

    My husband and I went to buy an edible arrangement to give as a Mothers Day gift and the cashier entered the wrong code when she rang us up so we got it for cheaper.
