    Today has got to be the absolute most lucky day of my life.

    This morning when I check my email, I noticed that my Dell 2007FPW, which wasn't supposed to ship for 2 more weeks, and my Apple USB modem, which was supposed to ship at the end of July, both shipped this morning.

    This afternoon at the book store, I got Homer's Iliad for $1.

    Buying lunch today, grilled talapia w/ hummus and rice, I thought "I've never tried the baklava here...maybe next time since this was $8." So I pay for my meal (to go) and begin walking out, when I hear "Sir! Let me give you one of these!" as the lady behind the corner pulls out a baklava, wraps it up, and hands it to me - free of charge.

    All small things, but these are the ones I think count the most.

    I don't know what it is, but this day is really lucky so far. Hopefully I can pass it on to the next person :)

    One day, I got to go attend an Adobe conference instead of going to the office. That wasn't so much lucky as it was planned, but it's still better than going to work! Then, at the conference when they were giving away door prizes, I thought that I was going to walk home empty handed when they called out someone elses name for the last prize. Fortunately for me, she had left early. My name was the next one called, and I won a copy of Creative Suite 2. Lucky me!

    I had a day like that a few months ago. It started at lunch at Rubio's (a fast food mexican restaurant), I was standing next to the salsa bar waiting for my friend to get his food when I noticed a baseball game on with my fantasy pitcher starting. When I moved closer to the TV someone dropped their whole tray of food right where I was standing a second before: salsa, 44 oz coke, beans, and burrito exploded on the floor.

    Then my next two classes were cancelled so I got to go home early.

    It was Friday.

    and my fantasy pitcher won the game.

    There was a few more minor things that just made the day though I can't remember right now.

    LOL!

    Unfortunately so. A good way for this day to end would be verizon/comcast/etc announcing high-speed in my area, but I don't see that ever happening.

    Only dial-up where I live :( (well, there is satelite...but a $500 hardware fee then $99 a month for 128k speed is for loonies)

    The day I won a trip to Hong Kong was REALLY lucky, but that was almost 10 years ago. I tried to have a repeat performance last weekend with a contest for a brand new 06 Mustang convertible. It was a 1 in 180 shot, but I lost. Most unlucky.

    my ups backup system was all set to arrive today, by fedex. i go out of town tonight through wednesday. my plan is to eyetv all the world cup games in the meantime, but the intermittent brownouts at my house had me worried my computer would go off and not come back on to record. fedex doesn't usually drop packages off at my house (and thus, i wouldn't have gotten it in time for my trip), but this time they did. so that's lucky for me then!

    thanks josh. pay it forward

    Aw, that sucks. I mean the smoking ban. I'll be out your way on Sun. 7/9. Up for a few drinks, maybe dinner that day? Even if we do have to go outside to smoke.

    Good luck tonight.

    I wish you all the best. And double-check your condoms to make sure they're not of the novelty luminous variety.

    I'm with you, man - I definitely don't smoke (nor do I advocate smoking), but banning smoking in restaurants and bars is ludicrous. This is America, right...?

    Less and less people smoke every day (yes, yes, it is on the decline...) - ultimately, the market will force bars and restaurants to begin banning smoking themselves. It's not the government's job...it'll happen eventually anyway.

    Until then, we non-smokers can find places that don't allow smoking (TONS of those places exist throughout Colorado) and smokers can enjoy a good beer and a smoke in bars...

    Oh well :(

    Yeah, the last thing I need is to end up looking like rudolph the red... um. Nevermind. :D

    Downsey: Yus, beer and food. And women possibly. We'll see. :p

    One day, while I was at a starbucks, I flirted with the barista and got a free chai frapp.
    And then I went to a fancy grocery with lotsa samples... they let me take more than one.

    then later that day, I bought a scratchoff card and won $3! ROCK!

    MAN! That day was LUCKY.

    also something blablabla tigernight, yada yad yada. The starbucks day was more fun. :D
