You might have had a good week if...
...you had your office Christmas party on Tuesday night, where you danced more in one night than you have all year;
...you saw the brilliant new movie Dreamgirls, for FREE, and have already bought and memorized most of the soundtrack;
...your amazing roommate treated you to dinner, where you shared great conversation and a bottle of wine, then went home and had a dance party (or two)... and she even surprised you with your favorite Starbucks drink the next morning;
...you went to lunch with a handful of coworkers and realized that the most important conversations are the ones that aren't billable;
...and in the middle of all these fun activities, something awful happened, but you were so encouraged by the cheerfulness and warmth of those around you, as unintentional as a well-wishing facebook message to the sympathetic listening ear of a best friend, that it made life bearable, at least until the next crisis, and for that you are very grateful;
...and finally, you realized the leopard-print shoes you almost didn't buy were actually the best head-turning purchase of the whole year!
Thanks to anyone that participated in or made possible any of the above. The best gifts this Christmas season are the ones I've already been given: each and every one of my dear friends.

Update: Rod the iPod spent the better part of last night undergoing massive cranial reconstructive surgery. Rod had to have his entire memory erased - all 2700+ songs, playlists, play counts, etc., but luckily the doctor/surgeon was the best I could find to do the job. I was especially glad that I did not have to airlift him to Apple for further surgeries. Turns out that the premature disconnection he suffered on Tuesday wiped out almost 10 GB of memory. So after what little was left of his memory was erased, all 2700+ songs were restored back into his brain and he exited surgery shortly thereafter. He is recovering marvelously and has even played a few songs today. We're taking it slowly, though, and appreciate your thoughts and concerns.
In other news, I'm very close to selling my possessions and joining the circus... or becoming a Nun. They made it look fun in Sister Act. But you get to play with animals in the circus. Tough choice.
While I decide, watch and enjoy this:
