WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE, HOW ARE YOU SO AMAZING, WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE YOU AS FRIENDS AND HOW IS YOUR SENSE OF TIMING SO SPOT-ON?!
This is care package #2 from Raleigh, home to the coolest people on the planet.  Not only does it consist of the awesomeness you see before you, it’s also the best-timed-pick-me-up ever.
You see, the apartment where we live had a contract with DirecTV that blocked out all other internet and TV providers.  This wouldn’t have been terrible, if DirecTV offered internet speeds greater than 3 mbps (or ever delivered more than 1), but you can’t do much more than check email with speeds like that.  When the complex brokered a deal with Comcast, we jumped at it.  The internet was no problem to cancel.  The TV services, on the other hand, were only offered on 2-year contracts, with a fee of $20 for every month remaining at the time of cancellation.  We have 21 months to go. 
Basically, it would cost us in excess of $400 to swap to a better provider.  And, unfortunately, the building is wired in such a way that we can’t use Comcast for internet and DirecTV for cable; there can be only one at least until such time as I get on the phone with DirecTV and roll some goddamn heads, because I love my husband but he couldn’t complain his way out of a wet paper bag.
This all hit the fan this afternoon.  So, to come home and find a package with yarn and brownie mix and nail polish and adorable charms and candy and mixtapes and Fine Art Greeting Cards was basically today’s only saving grace.
I am going to go eat ALL THOSE M&MS now and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop me.
