Well, most of my friends' happy day post would be the inauguration of President Obama (and already he gets more respect from me than I ever gave Bill Clinton--but I was younger and he was more of a jackass). It's not mine, though his inauguration is also not a bad day post for me either. I didn't vote for him, but so far he's given me no reason to doubt his sincerity and every reason to hope for positive change that I personally can believe in. I continue to hope that he's the best president we've ever had. Also, I really did like his speech. That was an excellent speech.

That said, today's happy point...damn...urm...finding out that I can reasonably charge $150 an hour? I spent the day doing work to set myself up as a business entity. I now have a federal id number and am trying to find out what I need to set up an IOLTA trust account. I did get a little work done on cases, but most of the day was spent on business administration stuff. That's not really happy stuff in and of itself, but maybe one day it will be.

Hell's bells. What is my happy place today?

I know. Terry Pratchett. I've started re-reading Going Postal, which is an excellent, excellent book. Pterry is my favorite author and has been for several years. I have reread all of his Discworld novels several times and I find something new each time. Also, I laugh each and every time. Pratchett's books were one of my comfort places through law school. If I was stressed or down, I could pull out a Discworld book and find my happy place again. (Heh. My zen place rides around through space on a flat planet held on the backs of four elephants riding on the back of a giant turtle. That's really not funny except where it is.)
