down: I didn't win the lottery.
up : at the bank today, one of the employees saw that I was with the bears and she said that I seemed to love bears - did I have room for another one? I therefore now have a new Washington Mutual Bear.
up 2: I got my new temporary cap and it fits beautifully. It's awesome how you take things for granted until suddenly it breaks away from you - so to speak.
up 3 : I heard back from the news director at komo 1000. He loved my new rewrites and wants me to do some more.
