Beautiful day

What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now, don't need it now

Today truly was a beautiful day. I got some overdue work out of the way, I read practically everything there is to know about the next WoW expansion, I saw one of my all-time favorite teachers get married, I had the most fun I have ever had in a swimming pool, and I finally learned how to play mahjong.

Those things would be enough to make a great day. But in addition to all that, Ben just proved once again that he is a complete badass. He's the kind of person who can utterly shut someone down and smile at them at the same time, and for some reason that makes me ridiculously happy.

This entry probably doesn't make sense to most of you. Sorry for that, but I think there are some experiences which are so perfect in and of themselves, that trying to explain them actually robs them of their perfection. And so I'm just going to let this entry be.

Let me just say that I'm going to bed with a huge smile on my face.

Most days are beautiful, I should think.
I wandered onto your blog and thought I should let you know that I did. I'm glad you enjoyed Magistra's special day - she deserves this very much. The Bishop referred to it as "the canonization." Supposedly it was to be very large. But anyway, take care. Keep up with the blogging!

This particular "Badass Ben" moment pales in comparison to the "You guys are all the s**t" moment he had in the Facebook group, but it's still pretty good.

I know what you mean. Sometimes there are days where you just feel that all is right with the world, and you feel so happy and free... I love those days =)
