    During my first week on ETS, I was the subject of a word filter. It was during the ARG, and people thought I was a plant, so "jessamineny is a plant" became "jessamineny is a girl." It was quite the introduction to this place.

    Little things that cheer you up.

    I got my blind dog a stroller so I can take her with me on longer walks (it's been recommended) and take her with us to the marina, and I've been "stroller training" the dog. And it's HILARIOUS. The dog is actually LIKING this dog stroller.

    I dunno. It was the ARG. Everyone was paranoid, and finding/manufacturing meaning in every little thing. There were a bunch of new users, and games are sometimes known for sending people in to advance the game if it's stuck. Someone decided that was me, and convinced a few others, and it spread enough to apparently annoy the mods.

    Had to come into work today for a two hour meeting. Which sucks, but we only have to come in on Saturdays for these meetings once every three months so that's not too bad. They originally scheduled it for three hours, then cut it down to two. Turns out it only lasted an hour. So by 9:00 I had my entire weekend in front of me. Awesome.

    Also, on the way home from said meeting I finally bought my first pair of women's jeans. And they were on sale for $11!

    A text that just said "Good morning, beautiful" on a day where I really, really, really needed something cheesy like that.

    I think that might have been me. The one who setup the filter that is

    Co-worker "Why don't you take a break for the last 20 minutes of your last day on the job". I took that advice, heh.

    James Brown.

    Seriously, it's impossible for me to be in a completely shitty mood when the Godfather of Soul is playing. Sure, I may still feel bad when listening to Get Up Offa That Thing or Super Bad, but it's noticeably less than before. I have a natural distrust of anyone who doesn't immediately smile or start dancing around when he comes on. I can't even tell you how many times I've made a total ass of myself out in public when he's on the loudspeakers in a store.

    Proving myself wrong. It sometimes helps a lot, and can also provide very peaceful, enlightening, and uplifting experiences.

    I feel like I've finally gotten a grip on myself and my drinking is now under control (i.e. not drinking at all), and my relationship with my partner is back where it used to be/needs to be.

    I also got a pay rise and a bonus added in last Friday.

    Very happy, and I'm taking far less prescribed pills than I usually do/used to (hence my post here).

    Now all I need to do is not screw up anymore and maintain this happiness.

    If only I could get that part right, then I'd be cheering.

    As for things that cheer me up - being warm when it's really fucking cold. One of the many small things I like about winter.
