Something good?

Got some bad family news just now. Nothing about me directly, but it's one of my moderately close family members. Waiting for more details on some parts of it. Feeling helpless and upset and not entirely rational on this subject.

So! Tell me something good. Here, I'll go first:

1) We still have fresh tomatoes. Fresh tomatoes are good.
2) The brownies are almost done baking. That's three good things in one: brownie batter, the smell of brownies baking, and then of course the brownies themselves.
3) The dog is scruffing her head into a blanket with her butt in the air, looking sideways at me to see if I am cheered up by her cuteness or whether she needs to break out the big guns (licking the backs of my knees, then chasing her tail; repeat until monkey breaks down and laughs).
4) My standard "living in the future" stuff: contact lenses, birth control, dishwashers, fancy word processors, internet. Hot tub. Etc.
5) I have my energy back again, which is useful for all sorts of things.

I posted this as a comment in someone's friendslocked entry complaining about her job, but hey, everyone likes to make fun of other people's cow-orkers and WCW at the same time, right?

This Is Just To Say
I have misunderstood
the e-mail
you sent to
my inbox

and which
you were probably
would make sense.

Forgive me.
It was so random
so incoherent
and so badly punctuated.
