so far today i:
-was given a complimentary bottle of the wine of my choice by best cellars,
-found a newspaper, which is better luck than it sounds because i was unable to watch the debate last night and am a total style section addict, so i this lucky find satisfied two, count em two, urgent desires,
-was treated to coffee & a muffin by a coworker,
-was given a gorgeous rose ring by yet a different coworker!!
-was able to preorder the *new* mos def album,
-and finally, someone described my necklace as "pow!" and then said, "you know, like emily."

i predict october is going to be a very good month for me.
