A friend called me this a couple of days ago. I had to look it up here.
It's true. I can be pretty optimistic (and determined, for that matter) in the face of adversity. It is a characteristic that served me well tonight. I managed to get this post in to keep me in the running for NaBloPoMo, despite the fact that Blogger has been down for the last couple of hours.
I did have a little nap on the couch, though. Now I can go to bed.
