1. Dreaming up, crocheting, and finishing the near-mouse, Marcello, in one weekend
2. Snot and phlegm when it presents itself as a sign of healing and stops me from worrying that I am going to die of bacterial pneumonia
3. That my friend, Batty, survived yet another of his jumps out of an airplane
4. Whoopi Goldberg
5. Believing, however falsely, that I might get to the bottom of my e-mail inbox
Wage a battle against embitterment and take part in Grace in Small Things.
