The Librarian

Happiness is ...

... coming home from running after-work errands at 5:30 p.m., changing into comfies while computer is starting up, opening email and finding "girls' night out tonight" invite in inbox. Perfect timing ... was able to get back into presentable clothes, repair hair and makeup and arrive at the restaurant by 6:00 p.m. (our usual meeting time). So, instead of an evening of proofreading edit sheets for work (requires much staring and comparing of marc code, so easier at home with good music and decent lighting), knitting and possibly excavating the coffee table, got to NOT cook and to giggle in good company until nearly 10:00 p.m. :-) East Side Mario's had changed their menu since our last time there, so new goodies to sample; had chicken, broccoli and bow tie pasta in scrummy cheesy sauce, after we'd polished off extra-garlicky bruschetta (followed by cheesecake with chocolate sauce for dessert).

The only way it could have been better would have been to have all my e-buddies present as well. :-)
