beautiful, beautiful.

hello, you beautiful people.  isn't the internet lovely this morning? 

the birds are chirping, the sun is shining, there's a high of 70*...AND I GOT FOUR HOURS OF CONSECUTIVE SLEEP LAST NIGHT.

that's right, friends.  april 17 is the day that will go down in history as the morning after finneas only woke up once during the night.  now, i realize i can't count on this being the case from here on out, but seriously.  it's just nice to know it's even a possibility.

today is going to be a bright, bright sunshiney day.

in closing, i thought this jack handy quote summarizes how i feel:

"is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? and he's carrying a beautiful rose in his beak, and also he's carrying a very beautiful painting with his feet.  and also, you're drunk."
