Traffic court: 4 points, $100 fine + court costs ($124), and an admonishment from the judge to redouble my efforts to be a safe and courteous driver.

Bonus SW RPG MGM: engulfing one of the Jedi in a cloud of burnt personal deodorant spray to distract the keen-scented predator that was trying to eat his head. It made the Jedi mad, too, which I promptly decided had been part of the plan all along.

Weather: freaking COLD.

Sweeties who will (with some cajoling) warm me up in bed: priceless.
