A textbook I'm legally obligated to have for my career has been given to me for free from the university. It's not the lack of expenses on my behalf, it's the fact that it's my favourite text to read through. I almost squealed when they gave it to me and I'm still gushing over it and the new book smell.
A neighborhood outdoor cat has become a buddy of sorts. I just drove my friend to work (borrowing the car for the day for some errands), & as soon as I returned, the kitty was there. He does this. He came running out of the woods to see me when we left this morning, too. He also just tried to come into the apartment and protested when I had to shoo him out. Gave him some treats as a consolation (had some onhand that I meant to donate since my mother's cats didn't want 'em).
