Good times… in 2k words or less

I’ve had a few speed bumps as of late that I’ve been trying to gracefully scale and I thought I’d take some time away from the place I can accurately refer to as “Debbie Downerville” to throw a few things down that make me feel all warm and fuzzy or make me laugh.  Considerate it my stream of simple joy consciousness; please feel free to add your own.
