Daily 5 - Year 3, Day 24

Today's Daily 5:
  1. spotting a statue, normally nude, (one of the rather well known giant ones by the CBE building), that someone had dressed.  I noticed from the bus, and it totally made me laugh out loud.  It looked like it was wearing a rasta wig!
  2. Friday!
  3. a mango smoothie for breakfast
  4. wearing jeans at the office
  5. that moment on Friday when you turn off your alarm clock, and know it's off for the whole weekend
  6. a compliment from a tiny, elderly cleaning lady who I shared an elevator with for two floors.  She told me I was very beautiful.  (At the time I was sweaty from running an errand on foot in the heat, midway through a busy and stressful afternoon, and feeling totally discombobulated.)  It made me smile, because she looked me in the eyes, pausing as she disembarked the elevator, and stopped to tell me.
  7. good bus connections to get home
  8. hanging out with a friend I've known since high school, for dinner and drinks, and then a bit of book shopping
  9. sharing a sarcastic sense of humor with her, especially as we commented about the obviously quite new, and fairly incompetent server who waited on us tonight
  10. bookstore browsing while continuing a never-ending conversation. (and hello - got the special edition Peanuts Moleskins, which I've been eyeing, for 50% off!)
  11. Just now as I was writing this list my dad knocked on my door and asked if I wanted to see the Northern Lights.  Seeing them is incredible, even when you're in the middle of a city with all it's ambient light.
