I am tired of feeling glum, so here are three great things that happened today:
1) I arrived just in time to see a beautiful ocean sunset. Go So Cal!
2) Dark chocolate-covered peppermint Joe-Joes, from Trader Joe's. Is anyone else sad they only have these in December? They're amazing! I can only manage two at a time, and even then they're so rich I feel like passing out.
3) Hayward just whined again about the "vicious cross check" delivered to Corey Perry's back by one Dustin Penner. Way to go, Pens. That gave me more satisfaction than I can express.
