Things Making Me Happy Today

  • My puppy who is being super affectionate today.  

  • Making plans to go to a dollar movie tomorrow.  Who knew those even existed?!?  Aparrently there is one in Plano - $2 at night and $1.75 matineee.  Tomorrow I see Twilight.
  • Feeling completely prepared for my first test tonight.  Yep.  That's right.  Tonight is my first test as a PhD student - and I am going to do great!
  • Playing pool with my husband in the middle of the afternoon.  Because we can.

  • Casey hearing back and getting great feedback (and interviews) from multiple sources.  I just have to keep reminding myself that we only need one of them to work out!
  • Great jokes about Texas:

Here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about folks from Texas ...
  • If someone in a Lowe's store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you may live in Texas ;
  • If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you may live in Texas ;
  • If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you may live in Texas ;
  • If 'Vacation' means going anywhere south of Dallas for the weekend, you may live in Texas ;
  • If you measure distance in hours, you may live in Texas ;
  • If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you may live in Texas ;
  • If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked, you may live in Texas ;
  • If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you may live in Texas ;
  • If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph -- you're going 80 and everybody's passing you, you may live in Texas ;
  • If you find 60 degrees 'a little chilly,' you may live in Texas
  • If you actually understand these jokes, and share them with all your Texas friends, you definitely live in Texas .
