Really? Worst day EVER?

In the wake of the deaths of Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett, I'm amazed that so many of my friends' Facebook statuses are something in the realm of: "This is the worst day ever." < -- yes, that was literally the Facebook status of several friends.

Really? The worst day ever, eh? Worse than September 11? Worse than the day someone you actually knew and loved (a grandparent/parent/sibling) died or got sick? Worse than the TWO days George W. Bush was inaugurated? 

It's sad for the Jackson and Fawcett families but honestly ... let's cut the melodrama here. 

It's been a great day for ME so far -- got up early, did some exercise for an hour to enjoy the sunshine before it gets super hot, and ate a pathetic -slash- delicious breakfast of cherry tomatoes, a Clif Bar and almond butter. Yummo. 

Packing, packing, packing! I leave TOMORROW!! And the weather looks warm-ish -- I'm thinking "Vancouver in August" -ish.
