Three Small Victories

1) Strategic Victory
I just cracked the top 10 on the It's Your Turn Pente Ladder - I'm currently ranked number 6! There are over 200 players on the ladder and I started at the very bottom, so I feel pretty good about that...
By the way, everyone should belong to It's Your Turn. It's the easiest on-line game site I've found for correspondence style play. It's like playing with friends by email, but they take care of all the pesky record keeping and message sending for you. In addition to Pente they have Chess, Backgammon, Stratego, and a bunch more. Join, and be crushed by me...

2) Wardrobe Victory
Last year, I ordered the super sweet "I am ten ninjas" tee shirt from Diesel Sweeties.

Due to a shipping mishap, I got a shirt with my own personal robot Jesus instead.

I totally understand the mix-up - they are very similar, ninjas and R2D2. So this year, I ordered ten ninjas again - and I'm wearing it right now! (I also got one which reads, "1f u c4n r34d th1s u r3411y n33d t0 g37 141d")

3)Literary Victory
I finally finished reading "The Morgesons" by Elizabeth Stoddard. If you aren't familiar with this 250+ page abdominal cramp count yourself lucky, and take my word for it - reading it cover to cover is an accomplishment. I've also finished "Daisy Miller" by Henry James, but that is not as big a deal. It's like treating your own ingrown toenail, where "The Morgesons" is more like giving yourself an appendectomy with your car keys...

So I have three reasons to feel good about the day. What have you got?

My 9 o'clock class was cancelled today. A cute girl in the row across from me and three computers down smiled and waved at me when I came in, I have no clue who she is. And one time my snot was blue for a week, oh wait, that not really a victory is it?

It could be a victory, if you were in a blue snot contest...
