A Day of Good

Twenty minutes left in the day and about six minutes left of battery life on my computer, but dammit, I am a champion. This blog post is going up.

Today was utterly beautiful. Panera for lunch with Mom, Water For Elephants with my sisters, vegan chocolate chip cookies (verdict: taste about the same, but the consistency was somewhat dogfoody), hangout time with all my siblings, Deathly Hallows Part 1 on DVD. I set a date to have my wisdom teeth taken out, was hit on by a cute guy, and several pairs of pants in my usual size fell straight off of me from having lost weight. I just feel totally relaxed and happy and good. Not "good" as in "I can't think of any better way to say it," but "good" as in the denotative definition of the word. My day was good, my family is good, my life is good. (It is only occurring to me now, in my quick read-through before hitting "publish," that today is also Good Friday. I shall henceforth pretend that the content of this paragraph was intentional and that I am very subtle and wordsmithian.)

I did find time to read your comments on yesterday's post, and guys, I've gotta say-- not many of you are talented enough to hang out with my eyes. Those of us with perfect color accuracy, though, should make membership cards or something. "I can see better than you can see and everyone can see why that makes me amazing." Or... we can negotiate on the slogan when I'm not falling asleep.

Anyway, I hate to blog and dash, but the little yo-computer-bout-to-die meter is turning red. It's not up to me anymore.* As Dumbledore said, "It is our choices that show us what we truly are, far more than our abilities." And right now, I'm learning that who I truly am is someone who's tired so shut up you guys leave me alone goodnight. I hope you all have a lovely day, and I'll see you tomorrow!

Everything here sounded good to me. I just took the color test, and I got an 8. I feel like that is so near to perfect, that I am. I'm glad you had such a nice day, even after watching Part 1 of the Deathly Hallows, such a sad, sad beginning.

I fully support the formation of a members-only club for those of us with perfect color vision. Also, I support a slight revision to the slogan: "I can see better than you can see and everyone can see why that makes me amazing, unless it's in color in which case you can't."

Whenever my roommate does something cool or exciting that's impressive, I give her a Prize of the Day (which is usually a poorly drawn trophy on a sticky note).
But when she does something show-offy that makes me jealous, like the splits, I just say "No one likes you, Christine!"

So. Those of you with perfect color vision: NO ONE LIKES YOU!

Nice choice on that Dumbledore quote; it's one of the best. I always read but never comment. I decided to write a short post about you for today's BEDA, though, so I thought I should leave a link in case you were interested in reading.

"If you could see as well as I can, you would see that I'm amazing. As it is, you'll just have to trust my perfect eyesight."

Unfortunately, I didn't score perfectly on the colour accuracy test, but I can still see that you're awesome. I'm glad you had a solidly good day. :)

I love a good Dumbledore quote. Thank you. And also thank you for being my little "gift" every morning when I've checked all the regular sites.

GladysgCactus said...

Our internet broke, so I got my mu to drive me all the way to an internet cafe, JUST to read your BEDA post.

...............worth it

I know how you feel Hayley.
Even as a straight guy with a (wonderful!)girlfriend I still feel special when a cute guy hit on me lol.
I was waiting for your blog yesterday but I had to go to bed before you could post it.
I have to stay awake until 6 am (which is midnight for you)in France to see your new blog!
How can't you post earlier in the day!?
Last night I was just too tired and went to sleep at 4 am and discovered your new blog in the morning.
Im glad you had a good day. :)

I was wondering if you could talk about advice for graduating high school seniors. I have no idea what to expect.

Rosanna said...

Sounds like the perfect day! And what did you think of Water for Elephants? I am quite looking forward to seeing it. And of course praying that Robert Pattinson's performance is just a little more animated than his angsty depresso vampire!

Ginny said...

stop making me feel bad about my 43! darnit Hayley... but anyway, glad you had a good day. this made me happy :)

Manar said...

Sounds like a pretty perfect day. :)

What happened to presence?

nelamonster said...

Wordsmith is just one of the awesomest words that I forgot about.
I've had a good day as well, I was READING ALL DAY LONG (I mean, it's my Saturday but whatever. Time zones confuse me)

Joanne said...

i don't believe that many people had perfect colour vision -- some just copied your screen shot and pasted it as their own!

Victoria said...

You are all elitist and insensitive to us non-perfect vision people. I think we need to form a union, like People with Impaired Colour vision are Not Intellectually Challenged. That's right, PICNIC. And we'll have lots of them. AND YOU'RE NOT INVITED. HA.

Had my wisdom teeth out yesterday, it sucked. i feel like all i can eat is either super sweet ( jello, ice cream, pudding) or like too salty (Campbell's soup) not as bad as i had heard though, still have fun with that.
