1. My lovely wife and wonderful daughters made the most fabulous father’s day celebration for me today, and sang and danced and made food and gave lovely presents and generally did things which led to my feeling enormously loved. That went well because I have the most asoundingly amazing and lovely and delightful, winsome, gracious, kind, loving, family.
2. I got to play blackjack with an astonishingly quick dealer yesterday. That is always fun because it’s rare that I find a dealer who can approach playing as fast as I can–when I do, I sort of get to experience flow. That went well because he and I have dealt and played (respectively) enough to get quick at it.
3. I learned a new word, which is always fun! It’s “eldritch”. From OED:
Eldritch: Weird, ghostly, unnatural, frightful, hideous. [Of obscure origin; connexion with ELF, conjectured by Jamieson, would be suitable for the sense, and is supported by the form elphrish, app. the same word.] 1860 L.D. LYTTON Lucile I iii. §I.87 Truth is appalling and eltrich, as seen By this world’s artificial lamplights.
That went well because I was looking up another word and found this one. You gotta love that “elphrish” in the etymology. I’m going to start using that (alternative/former?) spelling.
