In a universe of many constellations I spot a shining star

So I had the crappiest day of software irritation , spending my morning fighting the test case management system (Test Director), which kept crashing, the bug management system (Test Track Pro), which didn't want to give me a report in a usable format, and the wiki, which wouldn't upload files in the format I'd created and which didn't like the format I was using to create links but wouldn't tell me why. All this struggle was to create just one, I say one, report, which, once I'd sent it out, turned out not to work if you weren't logged into the wiki. To quote a coworker, they're about as useful as a chocolate teapot.

However, like a beam of sunshine on a cloudy day, Mr. shadowdaddy, who's currently starring in the role of Ladies Who Lunch, showed up on his borrowed bicycle with two to-go vegetarian lunches from a yummy place way up the road in Hammersmith, and we sat down and had dosas, curry, rice, sambar, peppy coconut chutney, a cabbage-y veg side dish, a daal, and some rice pudding. It just totally brightened up my grumpy little butt and made me happy. Thank you, shadowdaddy!
