simple contentment

I went to an officers' meetings for my local bar association. This year, my chief duty will be planning a Christmas party. Visions of sugar plums dance in my head.

I paid for my recent eBay wins, dealing charmingly with charming sellers. I like eBay. I am glad I lose far more auctions than I win, though, or an addiction might result.

I got some key things done today, and head to my plane in a timely fashion with a sense of self-assurance.
Now comes the big questions--"did I bring enough books to read on the flight", and, less nobly, "will I play the Wheel of Fortune slot machine during my layover in Las Vegas?".

Meanwhile, I am contemplating importing Vietnamese moon lutes, if for no other reason than the sheer picturesque beauty of the phrase.
