Happy things!

Reasons I am in a a good mood tonight:
New glasses! Ones that I am actually happy about!
I am nearsighted. Very very nearsighted. I like my contacts, but am required to not wear them to work. I hate wearing glasses. My main objective in purchasing glasses to day has been to try on fifty frames at the eye doctor's, sigh, and resignedly pick the least obtrusive pair that I don't hate too much. So imagine my surprise to find myself in a snazzy pair of deep glossy red Kenneth Cole wire rims, and loving them. Perhaps the best part? The 1.67 refractive index lenses. With AR coating. Yes, I am a geek. But I am a geek in lenses that in no way approximate Coke bottles. Hooray for high index monomers! (now there's a phrase I guarantee will not show up in my SiteMeter searches that bring up this blog, unlike "raw sex in river city" and today's favorite, "setting up nursing bars for baby goats." Which I read as nursing bras for baby goats, which is a completely different mental image.)
I got to spend the morning at the Carnegie Science Center!
I volunteered to represent my employer and all our nifty inventions as the annual SciTech exhibit. This is a fun event wherein us geek types get to go out and interact with real, impressionable young people. And tattoo our company logo to the backs of their hands.
Annual raise time!
No explanation needed, I hope.
New babies!
I love it when friends extend their families. It makes for many warm fuzzies, and it gives me an excuse to ignore my yarn moratorium (gotta save up for MSWF) and start new baby projects. Makes me extra glad I devoted an entire Saturday to sewing Easter dresses. Dresses are done, bar buttons, and the pinafores are well started. And there's just under two weeks left. If I keep this up, I'm going to lose my cred as a master procrastinator. (not bloody well likely)
As caro noted, spring is springing as signified by buds on the trees. I noticed this last Friday while hopping around my laboratory like a toad on speed. The maples outside the windows have fat, red buds on them. That never fails to make me smile.
And yes, I was literally hopping. I'm easily entertained that way.
