Question of the day, May 7, 2006:

Is Dianna in such a good mood because it's her 25th birthday, it's a beautiful sunny day, her semester is over except for two finals which should be quite manageable and a third which is a full week away, she appears to have come out victorious against the labyrinthine beauracracy of the financial aid office for the second semester in a row, and her plans for summer are looking very good indeed?

Or is it because she bought a tiny coffee maker yesterday and had a nice cup of delicious coffee with her pancakes this morning, after about five years of severely reduced caffeine consumption?

Or does it even really matter, since, one way or another, she's in higher spirits than a hilltop distillery?

Happy birthday! Many happy returns! Any non-caffeine-related plans for the day?

Well, yes. Grocery shopping and assembling materials for Tuesday's open-book final. There may be some watching of Battlestar Galactica later on, though. We gave up on our Netflix queue this week, returned everything unwatched, and went and rented season one from Reel Video.

Happy birthday, dude!

Mwahaha, you're starting your 2nd quarter-century by getting back on the caffeine wagon. But is it... boiling hot?

(Netflix also vexes me, but it's my own fault for refusing to either watch or surrender the stupid movies I've got, and refusing to bump all the trash I really want to watch up to the top of my queue.)

Muahahaha! They always come back!

Oh, and happy birthday.

Yes, yes, cackle away. Clearly my 4-ounce half-mug of coffee in the morning will destroy me through spiralling addiction. It's just like when I started drinking again, and you all know how bad that's gotten. Sometimes I drink a whole beer, if I've got three hours in which to do it.

Oh god, you mean the trollfest, don't you. I'm a little afraid to ask how it was helpful, but my curiosity is getting the better of me. How's that exactly?

And thanks. Or, you know, 25th, if you're feeling particularly tied to calendrical accuracy.
