Minor victory thread

My son got his college acceptance letter today. Minor victory, but it certainly drives home that he's growin up.

Went down a belt notch today. So I got that going for me, which is nice.

Also where I work now has stairs I can take instead of an elevator. The radio station was all on one floor. Just a little bit more physical activity can't hurt.
 
Work let me pick a gift for years of service, I chose a Birks watch. IT arrived today. It’s really pretty.
 
Thanks :)

My current department is really good about anniversaries etc which is really nice as my old one forgot all my others.

I might be, too. Thanks to all the overtime on this road trip, I'm already at 33.5 hours for the week.

Sounds like a great chance to get various chores and errands taken care of that will be spent playing video games.
 
Sounds like a great opportunity for a double HF House update followed by a long session of petting/fighting the cat.

Quick! Someone find a minor but difficult to replicate bug in the forum. I'd do it myself but the only one I know of looks to be a browser issue & I'm using a nonstandard browser (Vivaldi) so I suspect Gas's solution would be "Fuck off & use a proper browser."
 
We had people over to the house this weekend, and I didn't get overly anxious about it all. Instead of dwelling on the dread of the social side of stuff, I got into making sure we had tons of food, snacks, and drinks. We now have a full fridge and enough beer and la croix for a second get-together. I even made it a point to speak to everyone who came over.

Things seem to be going pretty well for me right now.

I'm waiting for the anvil to drop out of the sky and correct things back to the tragedy I expect them to be.
 
Just bought my plane tickets to go to Walt Disney Wold in November! Star Wars Galaxy's Edge here I come!
 
I've been having a super shitty day but I just had a delcious lunch so I'm feeling a bit better.
 
Decided to sample the Spicy McChicken sandwich for the first time in a long while. Mostly avoided getting them because I prefer the non-spicy ones you get back in the Midwest. Wasn't as bad as I thought, so that's a plus.
 
They only put lightly spicy seasoning in the breading. It's really more on the mild side of the scale. I also order it plain, so there's no sauces that could potentially increase the spiciness of the sandwich.

This is kind of weird. After going through being laid off and getting a new job, I had forgotten some of the places I applied (this was back in December). So... apparently I got an interview for a faculty position at a quasi-ivy league school. I went for that gauntlet today and it went really well. I would really like to accept the job, except even at a prestigious school, faculty pay is dismal, and I don't think I can afford the downgrade in salary. Still, it was good to be asked.
 
Had a microsecond brownout here that knocked out cable & the AC. Was worried that the AC had gone out. Minor victory because it didn't.
