Happiness is...

waking up late on a Sunday morning

having some really excellent stir fry made by MM with the assistance of Mustang Girl for dinner. (and I didn't do a thing but sit on the couch and watch Ted Nugent show off his "crib". I think Ted is a psycho, but he has a nice house)

zooming down the road in the topless Roxie the Scarlet Harlot on my way to work. Temperature 81 degrees, my hair blowing in the wind as I laughed hysterically over how my windblown locks would look to my co workers and patients. (If you all see a nurse, flying down the road in a red Rubicon blaring Metallica in her denim scrubs laughing, cut her a break. She's probably overtired and a bit unhinged.)

knowing that I will have 3 days off after tonight, and that my shift is more than half over

eating the leftover stir fry that Mustang Girl thoughtfully packed up for me before I left for work

the fresh pot of coffee that is currently brewing

listening to Celtic Rose sitting behind me laughing at my silly co-worker, G.

seeing that one of my patients whom I have taken care of for at least 5 nights is getting better and better, and may well get to go home soon.

devising a plot to get my comfortable bed over to MM's house. (his bed is fine. But mine? Well, its mine... and I *heart* it.)

watching Mustang Girl chase my demonic black cat, Jack, through the house, hearing her laugh hysterically at his wide eyed look of terror as he slides across the wooden floor. (he has been so rotten, chasing Audrey for so long that it is SWEET seeing the tables turn on him. Besides, he can use the exercise)

knowing that I am going to have half of June off, for vacation

the upcoming Tiki Party in Portland (start putting in your requests for Drunken Portland Postcards, take 2 now)

this ridiculous picture of one of our surgeons posing for a Scrub advertisement. He looks so cheesy, But he is actually a pretty nice guy)

Did I mention the stir fry? It had chicken, and ginger, and water chestnuts, and snow peas...

knowing that in approx 4 hours and 15 minutes, I will be happily zooming back down the road, hair blowing in the wind (probably wearing my Yankee's cap)listening to something, (probably not Metallica) heading towards a warm bed, and a nap....

what makes you happy today?

Having a bowel movement might make me feel kind of giddy or even some breakfast.

my house is quiet

working on the album art for Mr. Kaos' new music project

knowing that you'll be up for the tiki party... and perhaps bringing the mustang duo?

I am happy to be home w/o any airport flight delays (tho the traffic coming in from JFK was heinous).. happy to have slept in my own bed (I totally get your need for your's), happy to be hugged and kissed many times by Husband and rubbed against by the white kit while the black one went out of his way to ignore me. I am happy I had a lovely vacation. And I am happy to be catching up on my blog friend's lives. :-D

I love the vision of you in the car! Excuse me - the jeep! Scarlot Harlot - whatever!!!! :)
I am happy for so much today, not the least of which was that I didn't have to go out into the cold this morning to drop the kid off.
Much more, too.
And I will go for a postcard, but I doubt it'll get here! Haha
