Happiness

Such little things can make one so happy. Environment Canada has fixed their coding so the webpage's little icons now sit beside the text again. Sunday the cafe down the street has Eggs Benedict brunch. And someone on the FFL reviewing the complete oeuvre of M.R. James remarks that Count Magnus is clearly a vampire: and suddenly an oogley of over half a century's standing- the last padlock on the Count's coffin falling off and the lid starting to lift- becomes an 'oh yeah, that' thing. I might even be able to read the story again some time.

(OTOH the boy in the bath in Lost Hearts will never cease to be terrifying.)
