It's Friday, it's springy* outside, I'm still stuffed from my grilled Teese sandwich from Hungry Tiger last night, and I'm just about done with my cold.
It's a good day.

*I prefer to do a mash-up of two of the meanings of this word: the weather outside has rapidly jumped into vegetation mode and the blossoms, like elastic, are protruding from the earth (I'm still working on this definition)
