After a storm came through NE California on Friday, my neighborhood is back on the grid after begin offline due to severe damage to the local infrastructure and distribution system interconnect with PG&E. It really sucks being without power at home for 33 hours with no backup generator. :sad:

Um, this is the Happy Me thread? It's glass-half-empty grumpy "Un" sibling is next door.

(Or were you trying to cheer up everyone who hasn't lost power for a day or more recently? In that case thanks, but wouldn't that really require a "you have no idea how lucky you are" thread?)

You have no idea how lucky you are --- the cable company finally hooked up our TV and Internet service after two and a half weeks of living without.

I ate an inexpensive meal at a local diner that I like.
When paying I noticed that I had received an unrequested 20% senior discount ... a few years too early.

I ate donuts two times today. I love donuts.

I'm glad this is in the Happy Me Thread instead of the Unhappy one. All about perspective. :smile:

My perspective is that I will [I]try[/I] to look on the the bright side. I'm not actually that comfortable about it. A couple of times I've told Las Vegas blackjack dealers when they accidentally paid the the table in error. That 2nd time was a bit rough in an unhappy crowd. After that, sometimes, but not always, I pushed my bet+winnings forward as a tip and got up and left the table. I'm stronger focused these days on not making waves or getting a worker in trouble. I'm actually pretty close to a senior age but I wouldn't request a senior discount. Uncomfortably I toyed with eating again on a Tuesday, which is senior discount night, on the chance that I might receive the error in my favor again but I decided that it would spoil my meal and not just because of bruised vanity. I put it in the happy me thread but it's definitely a wry kind of happy.

Some whipper snapper thought that I was the parent of my sibling. :no:
