it feels so good

Most of my last day of work was taken up by boredom. Because I had numerous copies of the Metro which feature Suzanne's article on how Bush is not Hitler, I completed the crossword* and did my very first su doku. The su doku was easy and unimpressive. Towards the end of the day, I got plenty of handshakes, hugs, good lucks, all the bests, and general well-wishes. R even apologized for "getting off on the wrong foot" with me. One person hugged me and wouldn't let me go. Then she hugged me again. And several more times. I think she cried. I didn't cry, though. In fact, I had a big beaming smile all the way out the building and on the train home. I even broke out a couple times in laughter.

Particularly when I heard the following songs:
Let's Go
Since You're Gone**
Eye of the Tiger, the most triumphant song ever.

I did break into song once (Jack Off Jill's cover of Love Song). Let them think I'm crazy. I'm elated, dammit.

And it feels so good.

*OK, so there are 3 clues left - 1 across and 2 down. But dammit, I was close, and I didn't cheat.

** Even though my ipod is on constant shuffle it has a mind of it's own, as evidenced by the 3 (three!) Cars' songs I heard on my way home. (The other one was You Might Think.)

ps - don't go forget to vote on the fireworks thingy down at the bottom on the right over there.

Yay! Congratulations on getting out of that place. Bigger and better things lie ahead.

(And thanks for getting copies of Metro for me.)

suz, I hope you don't mind that one of the papers is not pristine. I wrote in pencil, but it doesn't affect your column.

mdog, that really is the best song ever. I even dished out the 99 cents to buy it from itunes, for times just like yesterday.
