I was in a great mood on Tuesday afternoon. I slept in a little bit. OK, a lot. I opened my bedroom curtains to the shining sun and clear blue skies. I drank my morning coffee while listening to early Joe Cocker and then I went out and ran five miles. I returned home to a long, luxurious shower and threw on a t-shirt and jeans to get to a screening of 'Everybody's Fine'. The day was perfect.

As I loathe traffic, I left my apartment early to make sure that I didn't have to worry about being late, since the screening was in Beverly Hills and I live on the more eastern side of LA in Los Feliz. I put an Aimee Mann CD into my car's sound system, rolled down the windows and relaxed as I drove, still basking in my good and lighthearted mood.
