Three Things meme

I saw this first from crs: "Look around you right now and name 3 things you can see in the room you're in that make you smile/happy, even if it is just the tiniest little bit!"

Well, I'm at work. But I like my job, so there's still a sufficiency.

  1. Flowers. There's the flowers harrock brought on Wednesday (after his Celebratory Shopping Trip), which haven't wilted yet. There's the purple flower on a wire from the Lexington Craft trip. There's the combat flower mace, made by the Pirate King out of two CDs and a huge bolt. There's the brass rose from King Richard's Faire. There's the iris-painting from tirinian and mjp's party game ("Hey, Laura, you can make us a Modern Art mechanic, right?"). That's more flowers than I would have thought, until I started counting.
  2. Space heater. It gets cold under my desk in winter. (It gets cold in summer too, but it's more Wrong to use a space heater then). Instead of wrangling with the site team over thermostats and where the ducts all vent, our group just got little space heaters. Efficient and entirely unbureaucratic.
  3. 6.170 award. I'm still proud of this. I got to pretend, for a little while, that I was a baby programmer, instead of just a perl script hacker.
