    Re: 3 Positive Things Part 6

    Gooblax funny holiday story #1:

    I didn't have any small water bottles to bring on my flight, so I picked one up at the store on the way to the airport. There was like 5mins between buses so I grabbed one quickly.

    Got to the airport with plenty of time even though the 2nd bus ended up being 10mins late. Once I boarded the plane I decided to take a sip of water. So I opened the bottle.

    It hissed and sprayed water all over my lap. It was SPARKLING WATER.

    Why does anyone drink this stuff?! Luckily the person hadn't sat beside me yet, and I'm not sure if the person in the aisle saw. So I have a (suspiciously?) wet lap for the flight. Hope it dries.

    1. Enjoying the sci-fi drama movie Clara about an astronomer searching for intelligent life after personal tragedy.

    2. Semester is finally finished. Six more credits to go

    3. Had some good memories come back of my late grandfather making espresso. Most of my memories of my grandparents are bitter sweet, but fuzzier memories seem to have the sweet without the bitter.

    1. Internet cabling guys are coming out today to install the NBN network (Australia's overblown, overpromised, overrated new network with 7 different types of installation being performed in different areas) at my parents' place. Soon I'll be able to use wifi on my phone rather than mobile data inside when it's such a poor signal that I have to stretch my phone up in the air and wait 4 minutes for a page to load after trying to load it 3 times.
    2. I am super nervous about them coming but there's only 3hrs 13mins left in their arrival window for them to appear.
    3. My family don't have to take time off work to be there when they come, because I'm here instead.

    Bonus: survived the install when they arrived, all went successfully to put it in the spot my parents wanted it, and we have a working wifi signal again. My 3rd NBN appointment for 3 different addresses... Thankfully I can't imagine a scenario where I'd be dragged into attending a 4th.

    1. Had fun taking my elderly neighbor out for lunch.

    2. Only $13 at Amazon for an outside door handle for my car door. (Dealership quoted $136, which provided free comedy.)

    3. Yesterday, husband's friend helped us fix the wire enclosure for our catio (cat patio), which had snow damage last month. We made it sturdier this time.

    1. There are so many daddy longlegs spiders in my parents place that I haven't been bothered to name any.
    2. Today I put away all the stuff I had to pull out of a cupboard (a couple of days ago) to find something.
    3. Cool weather.

    3 Positive Things Part 6

    Yikes!

    There's nothing scarier than a herd of nameless daddy long legs.

    Like that song.

    I rode through the desert on a daddy long legs with no name
    It felt good to be out of the rain
    In the desert you can't remember your name
    Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain

    Haha actually the two most disconcerting spiders are in the shower, so it is good to be out of the "rain" and proximity to the spiders. They're not fans of shower "rain" either so it was a foolish place to build a web.

    1. Elton John concert was awesome last night. The seats had a better angle than the purchasing website showed so that was a good surprise, and my family enjoyed the show too. Dad especially. I really tried to be 'in the experience' rather than in my head which was a difficult swap but there were a few moments where I was successful with that.
    2. Just came back from indoor rockclimbing with my brother. It was fun even though I'm worse at it now than I would have been when I was 12 years old. Not sure I'd be ready to go on my own to a bouldering gym though.
    3. Watching a show called Mighty Planes.
