It's good to have friends.

Well, I'm still a bit crappy, but my mood has come up a bit. That's a good thing. I had a good rant/wallow early this morning and received my share of Hugs 'n' Slugs™ from wonderful friends. That's a good thing too. Thanks, guys. This afternoon, I did some more griping to my friend Robert. Robert's a very interesting person. To speak with him you'd find him kind of "nerdy" and just slightly socially "left footed" but he's very approachable for an introvert -- like me. He's slightly more apt to strike up conversations with strangers than I am. He doesn't tell jokes well at all even though he's got a good sense of humor. He's also not really careful about what he says. He's not obnoxious, by any stretch of the imagination but his sense of tact and the bon mot are not the most polished. He's good people though, and a remarkable individual and I am glad to call him friend.

Anyway, I had mentioned the nasty information about my wonderful newly divorced status and the incredibly unbelievable financial mess that has spilled out of that blessed event. When I got home tonight, I found an e-mail from Robert with a link in it. It's a guy on eBay selling his ex-wife's wedding gown. The guy's pretty funny in what he has to say on the site. Apparently such a random impulse idea really turned things around for him. It's amazing how life can turn on a dime. There's opportunity hiding under every rock, if you're just willing to turn the rocks over and look. I think that e-mail was exactly what I needed to see.

Speaking of opportunities, I think I need to go do some McGuffin work now. I'm feeling a little bit inspired. Our friend Tom has been talking about feeling around for some people with money to invest and attempting to get a verbal agreement from perhaps up to a dozen people, that they are in for a million dollars apiece if when Robert and I get a McGuffin prototype working. This needs to happen this year. We've waited too long already.
