In which I am not whining :)
Things that made me happy in the recent past
1) B's friend calling and telling me to stock up on beer because he (the friend) was going to be visiting :). AND me proudly being able to say that I already had. :) :)
2) My friend calling and telling me "Main paanch min. mein pahunch raha hai tu chai ready rakh".
3) Friends dropping in unexpectedly to just say hello. :) Who said that happened only in India? AND my living room being neat and tidy. :) :)
4) Getting to see my niece soon! :) :) :)
5) Gossip-filled phone call from a friend.
6) Being able to share good news for a change with a friend who is my #1 Agony uncle.
7) Making travel plans to finally(!) visit the West Coast. Yeah! (And to you who may kill me for this, sorry but this will be NoCal only :p)
8) Being proven right. :) (Getting to say I told you so without having to say it :p)
9) Being excited about some papers I have been devouring and learning A LOT from. I may even have a solution to my problems hidden in there but that only time and experiments will tell.
10) Being told by my post-doc advisor that I am a natural teacher. :)
Yay me! :)
