Things I loved today.

Lisa on her birthday. Delicious vegan cupcakes on her birthday (courtesy of Elizabeth and Newhampton). The cauliflower curry made for us by the birthday girl. The company and conversations in general. Elizabeth's very clever movie synopsis in Beyond Balderdash for a movie called The Big Operator, that I knew was hers, but had to vote for anyway because it made me laugh so hard that she deserved it. The smelling game we played afterward that was fondly reminiscent of an activity I might have done in the 4th grade when studying the five senses. Dan gathered items from their household and held them up to each of our noses while our eyes were closed. Chapstick, cologne, orange, money, cough syrup. It is remarkable that this was fun for me, because I have a cold and couldn't smell anything, but still it was. I think it had something to do with the fact that we text Dan our answers to keep them top secret.

The fact that I actually did some of the things on my "to do" list, i.e., went grocery shopping, cleaned my room, hung a clock and picture frame purchased from Urban months ago, etc. etc.
