Times like these make me more sympathetic toward those who argued for a monarchy/tyrant whenever systems of government came up in seminar. We could use a Vetinari right about now, and possibly a Moist von Lipwig. (I wouldn't say no to a Sam Vimes, either.)
Things which are making me mostly happy at the moment: I got to hang out with my sister this weekend! And see my lovely roommate-that-was! Also, Sting singing 16th century love songs - which is way more awesome than you might expect.
