Having my own office and my own private bathroom.

When I first heard I was getting one I was like, "oh, that's cool. I guess." A week into this gig and I'm wondering how people manage without one.

I love that they used an REO Speedwagon song in the pilot of Glee.

My plants.

The fact that I have not killed my plants.

Tonight's pasta sauce (don't crowd the mushrooms!).

The smell of clean laundry.

*hugs Alea* YAY! Getting things paid off feels so nice!

And, as of today it's been 2 months since Courtney and I started dating. I love that too.

My favorite awesome Squishy Pen. It's got this gel grip on it that's not like other cushion grips -- it's really gelly like and awesome. It's been my transition object and source of comfort and sanity since I changed offices, and helps me keep my professional vertigo under control.

I had to have said this before but I'm saying it each and every damn time it happens: I love getting galleys. One from this most recent bunch looks particularly good: NUM8ERS by Rachel Ward.

I know one shouldn't judge a book by it's cover and yadda yadda and all. but I would think, 'oh they put an 8 instead of a B, this book is probably terrible.'

I think they made a movie that transposed an 8 for B in the word numbers and it was a terrible movie (or looked it). :-p

It would be awesome though if the book is indeed particularly good. despite the 1337 title!

King of the Hill. Despite the opinions of my brothers and the world at large, I find it consistently funnier than Futurama.

King of the Hill is definitely better than Futurama, and occasionally better than family guy.

My Metroid Prime Trilogy. It came in a metal case and carried with it two updates of great games and an unadulterated version of another great game, and I love it so.

But Metroid Prime 2, why are you so much more frustrating than the others? It was the same on Gamecube, and I was hoping, now that I've played you before, you wouldn't be as painful. But there's just as much backtracking, just as much "holy jeeze I can't believe I missed that and tracked all over the world looking for something that was, in fact, in the first room I looked," just as much aggravation.

Must... power... through... for... excellent third game...

That I have a pirate flag up in window, which happens to be directly above the main entrance to my dorm building.

Also, re-reading SftD.

I have a great-relative of some sort (aunt? The sister of my great-grandfather) whose name was Petra. I was tickled, almost to the point of being pink, over that news.

One of my friends has a dog named Petra. It makes me happy. And my cousin named his son Ender, so I love him.

I also love that my great aunt is named Zelda.

I know this might seem very lame, but I love nothing better than having a miniature that matches a character you love playing as. And when I say character, I mean in a table-top game. Because there's just something better about having an accurate depiction of a character you've spent hours and hours developing.

I also love whoever sold me that mini, because I bought it at 10:30 Friday night, from eBay, and I got it today. That's one-day shipping!

I love pandas, and strawberry jam, and green tea, and writing, and playing the piano, and my ipod, and my hair, and cats, and turtles, and stars, and trees, and water, and the colour green, and the colour bloodred, and my bedroom, and my books, and my toothbrush, and how I don't have to wear glasses or braces, and my bike, and my brother, and BUCK-TICK, and Naitomea, and MYV, and my friends, and rings, and my psp, and my handwriting, and swimming, and badminton, and floor hockey, and zip-lining, and motorcycles, and the sky, and my koi, and the WORLD!

I have a lot more.....but.....I can't remember since my brain has turned into mush because of all the homework I have. I definitely DO NOT like homework.
