From a meeting today. I’ve modified the quote but the idea is the same. “Pessimism is an emotion. Optimism is willpower.”

    You *go*, Peggy Bones! :)

    That’s it; you’re obviously unwell. We’re going drinking.

    Oh no you didn’t! I am not Peggy Bones, nor shall I ever be.

    But I agree, we should go drinking. When?

    Mmm-hmmm. Oh yes, I did! Inspirational Management Guru, please.

    “Pessimism is an emotion. Optimism is willpower”?

    I think an ecstasy-addled unicorn just puked up a rainbow on a basket of mewling kittens. Sorry, but you totally *earned* that comparison to P.B. (Was it your quote, btw, and if not, whose? I do so hope it was yours!)

    We’ll talk soon and figure out a time to go carousing…two papers to write this weekend, so I’ll call you during the week.
