As Good As It Gets

I turned 44 today.  Yikes.

I had the best birthday I can remember.

I know I've had better, but they would have been long, long ago, way before the changes started.

So, today, I -

Woke up to learn George R. R. Martin released a new sample chapter from The Winds of Winter.  This was great.  So much new information to digest and theories to make or adjust.  I spent 1/4 of the day reading it, then going to older books, then re-reading.  Good stuff.

Wrote a song, Nymspeak, based on a friend that also loves the ASoIaF books.  That was 1/2 the day.

Got an UltiMeat Pizza from Round Table, and was able to swallow!

Got Phishfood.

Made great progress on the adjustment front.

Watched the Warriors pull a victory out of their arses against the Suns.

It may hurt tomorrow, but I have not had a day this good, period, in ages.  There have been priceless moments with the kid, and those will be what my minds eye sees when I lay dying, but for a single day with so much going right and only a reasonable amount of pain, I probably have not had a day this good since I lived in Santa Cruz (the beach can do that).

Wow.  To get such a day on my birthday just plain rocks.

Positivity here?  Who knew?
