    The + and - Thread

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by The Freshmaker, Oct 27, 2006.

    This is the thread where you disect your day. Count up the pluses and the minuses. Was it a plus day, or a minus day, or did you balance out? Put in as many points as you can think of.

    Go!

    + Went job hunting today, and already got a call back
    + Three words: Creamcheese Swirl Brownies.
    - Spent too much money on a Halloween wig.
    + The wig looks freakin awesome on me.
    + I'm not as behind in my Humanities class as I thought I was.

    Yay, I'm +3 today.
