We all know the succes of [NSR] What's Pissing you off Today?.

Let's try a positive approach.

What did provide you a smile today?

Perhaps just a very bad joke in this forum, os just a sunshine after some bad weather...

Whatever just made you a bit happy

Well.. my husband just brought me a plate of bagel bites.

And I discovered my scooter has less damage than I originally thought after I dropped it the other day.

A guy stopped next to me at a light this afternoon asked, "You got a Hemi in that thing?" which quite amused me. One of those folks who just had no idea a little Vespa could pass his big ol' dually.

Yesterday I got a smile and a wave from a motorcycle cop, and then a sport bike guy called my Vespa "legit".

This actually happened yesterday: Rode scoot downtown for a scheduled root canal. Front desk person let me park on front of her office right up on building driveway. Went in for dreaded procedure, endodontist started probing around, called for more "pics" and decided that somehow the root has either regrown or two other dentists made mistakes... sent me home... now going to have a crown put in....

Congratulations, in a way. Haven't had a root canal (yet), but a crown is enough of an indignity.

Hey, hey!
Just slipped out to give my wife's car a wash (she works a whole block away).... it's too nice (hey 45 degrees scores a "nice" for now), and I don't mind scoring bonus points either

So, driving back to the office, see a bike coming through the intersection, and lo and behold, it's an MP3! Haven't seen one outside of a showroom here, and in this town I've yet to see anything Piaggio.

I WANNA RIDE!!!

Cripse, Stickey, I was too excited. You're checking my observation skills, aren't you? Headache emoticon Got the mp3 decal, full gear, reflective striping, full face helmet....dark colored bike, nothing that stands out, gray actually would be my first guess, but I'm not even sure what colors they come in. Actually thought I should follow him to say hi, but it was a bit too late.

I'll do better next time, promise Razz emoticon

I understand. There are a few WI mp3 people that have posted in the mp3 section. Melitab from Wisconsin Rapids has s red 500 and Blue Scoot who rides a black 250. I think there was another but couldn't find them. If you see him or her again point them our way. Now get out there and ride.

Nice to know...I'll keep an eye out for them. I was thinking of HamOnThree, but this isn't exactly friendly weather for an hour's ride yet.....though possible. Rapids is incidentally closer to 2 hours from here

Having to swap so many shifts around to deal with my surgery last week, I had absolutely flaked that I was supposed to come in for a morning shift today!! I also had my phone's ringer off while I was asleep. I ended up racing in nearly an hour late! The owner was already in the store, and he was actually cool with it. First time I haven't been early. So that's totally a good thing for today. I'm lucky I live so close, and have recovered enough to scoot. Plus it isn't raining, like it was threatening to.

I recall seeing one in SF with a license plate of "NOT OJS" and a sticker for an appropriately placed apostrophe. I busted out laughing. Wish I'd gotten a picture of it.

My back's doing well. My kids will both be here this evening (Easter break). I'm in the midst of planning a family vacation for which the money is already saved. There's a small chance I can actually get the bike out on Saturday. Things are good at work.


and... hey! I got another half roundel!

It's a good day.
