1. The fact that the National Park Service Web Site for Big Bend National Park has a page called "How NOT to Die in the Desert."
2. Today, Tuesday, is Friday for me this week. . .
3. . . . because I'm going camping for a long, glorious 5 days.
4. A lovely, laughter-filled dinner last night with an ex-boyfriend whom I hope will become a current friend.
5. Fixing my non-burning campstove all by myself, while neither causing said stove to explode nor setting myself or anything else on fire.
