Today I'm grateful for:
The weather! It only got to the mid 60's today, (18 C) and it's supposed to be staying below-average for the rest of the week, with deliciously cool nights. EEEEEEEE!!!
The fun oddities of the RNC; in this case, my coworker Shelley spotting the Governor of Minnesota in the McDonald's in our building with a half-dozen-plus guards. I was a trifle startled he wanted to have breakfast at McDonald's, of all places! (Though I love their cinnamon rolls!)
The didn't-happen could-have-beens of the RNC, as in the story I read just now about a 23-year-old who made himself five Molatov cocktails and was working on more, but thank God he got arrested well before he could chuck them around at the convention.
Also very grateful that tonight was the quietest for protesters and arrests yet. Only Thursday, the 'grand finale,' remains, and then it's OVER!
I have a soft spot for MacDonald's pancakes... but then I have a soft spot for any pancakes!
Good to hear that it's a bit cooler. I can't help but be amused that I too would love it to be 18 C this week. It's still rather chilly at the moment.
The convention certainly sounds like it has been rather volatile. I shall keep my fingers crossed that it stays quiet.
*hugs* Hope you're managing to enjoy your week.
I don't know if they sell pancakes in McDonald's around here--now I'm curious.
It got deliciously cool last night. I hope it warms up for you!
It's been rather hectic and unproductive, but it's Thursday already. That's good enough for me!

That cools weather sounds great. Hope you are getting some good sleep.
That is funny with the Governor at McDonalds. Not my choice for breakfast.
Glad things are calming down at the convention. I sure will be nice for everyone
went things go back to normal.
I was actually feeling too cold last night! Shado was glued to me, though.
Nope, and I hope he doesn't make a habit of eating at such 'healthy' places! I got to be left all by myself in my area for the last hour of the day again, but it was quiet getting out of the city, thankfully.
