So far so good.

I realize that I have no right to complain about having a bad day. Things could be much much worse - and for many people they are. I get it. really, I do. I'm just happy that I seem to have broken my little irritating streak of sand in my shorts style annoyances!
I went to breakfast with Evad today at our favorite breakfast place - CHIPS. http://www.chipsrest.com/ They have fan- fucking-tastic pancakes and omelets. Today, though, they had something that called to me from the specials menu:
Raspberry and Blackberry Croissant French Toast.
Oh.
My.
God.
It was three slices of croissant, prepared like french toast with glorious mounds of raspberries and blackberries on top. It was drizzled with a raspberry reduction, and dusted with powdered sugar. No, I didn't take a picture. I was too busy eating. The one owner came up to see if I liked it. Ha! I told her I want to eat it everyday - possibly live in it. Three of my favorite things in the world in one food dish. Heaven.
Excuse me while I wipe drool from my chin....
In knitting news, I worked on my KAL sweater last night! Evad and I went to see Julie and Julia. It was really something special. We enjoyed it intensely. Movie knitting is perfect for this sweater - especially the skirt bit. (No shaping to worry about!) The air conditioning was awesome. I hadn't been working on the sweater because I was too hot at home, but two hours of uninterrupted air conditioning knitting kicked ass!

I can't wait to see Julie & Julia. I read the book and now I'm curious to see the movie. The french toast sounded like it was to die for. Yum!
