I started my day by striking out at the 2 garage sales in the area and then getting stung by a hornet.

I ended it by finding $5 on the ground.

I think the good balanced out the bad here. (edit: ooh, I'm also up 9 Coke points this week from discarded bottles I've picked up off the ground, which is like being rewarded for cleaning up litter.)

(And in the middle, I had a day of BASICALLY NO WORK, so I was freeeeee to spend the day as I pleased. It was too hot to spend it all biking, though, so instead I went to the library and hung out there/around there, reading a lot and walking a bit, for 7 hours. It was awesome.)
All right! I am off to finish Instructions for a Broken Heart, which was recced for me on GoodReads, and one look at that cover immediately made me think of this --

Three days before her drama club's trip to Italy, Jessa Gardner discovers her boyfriend in the costume barn with another girl. Jessa is left with a care package from her best friend titled "Top Twenty Reasons He's a Slimy Jerk Bastard," instructing her to do one un-Jessa-like thing each day of the trip.

Stuck with a front-row view of Sean and Natalie making out against the backdrop of a country that oozes romance, Jessa promises to follow all of the outrageous instructions in her best friend's care package and open her heart to new experiences.

Enter cute Italian boy stage left.

So I think it is pretty clear here that for my purposes, Jessa = Rachel, Slimy Jerk Bastard = Jesse, and Italian Boy = Blaine. 

Oh, how did that get in here? That is a mystery.
