Daily Grind: Relaxed

Name: Vin (aka onivan of eniladam)
How Vin feels today: Relaxed @ 12:51:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: To enjoy a trouble-free Friday then to knock on wood because I typed that.

Music Stuck in Head: Star Wars Cantina Theme
Mostly because I can't stop playing with this online toy.

Stuff to do today:

  • Seriously, stop giggling like a seven year old girl
  • Continue on with Star Wars-related bullet points
  • Figure out your Star Wars name with this online generator
  • (mine is located in today's aka above)
