getting the GiST

February 3, 2009 at 7:37 pm (GIST)

I don’t know if I’m really doing the grace in small things lists right, since for now I’m just listing stuff that makes me smile, but maybe that’s the point of GiST…

Anyway, here’s some more stuff I like…

6. writting resignation letters I’ll hopefully never send
7. the effort scientific supply companies go to to make science prettier
8. pomegranate limades
9. happy people at the bus stop
10. that the trackball on my phone sounds like a Geiger counter

my head is a-spinnin'

February 3, 2009 at 4:18 am (cats, cold, GIST, just pure awesome, lessons in troll avoidance, life in general, simply flabbergasted, so confused)

Oi. Someone I know who will henceforth forever be known as “AlphaTroll” is trying to make my life miserable. Of course, I don’t know why I’m surprised, she’s been doing it the entire two years I’ve worked with her. Rather than fixate on this and worry if someone will randomly take it so far out of context that my brain will explode trying to figure out where the hell they are coming from, I will instead be inspired by this site. My goal now is to write five things that inspire me or bring me happiness every time I feel like punching the AlphaTroll.

1) Cat paws. The harrier the better.

2) Well weathered art.

3). Frosty plants at the bus stop.

4). Silly cat expressions

5) My lanterns

This is a very good exercise in peaceful thinking! I totally feel better now and highly recommend it.
