Happy Friday, party people! I have another Scotland picture-heavy post to throw up, but in the meantime I’m going to mention a couple things that are making me happy. I enjoy doing posts like this because well, I get warm fuzzies thinking about this stuff. So here are a few things I’ve been enjoying/looking forward to.
I am a big dork for Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I can nearly quote that movie start to finish, and having a beer brewed to celebrate such a silly film just makes me absolutely geeked. I paired the Holy Grail Ale with a Wawa sub last night and it made for a perfect dinner. :) Drinking this might have made me start quoting it on Twitter last night… and Facebook… and to anyone within an earshot of me.
Good hair days! I normally pile the mess of my hair on top of my head and forget about it 90% of the time. Yesterday I let it out of a bun and it looked like this. WHAT?! I wish it could do that every day, but sadly it mostly doesn’t. I do need a trim as it’s not been cut since mid-Decemeber, but I have no idea what to do other than long layers. Ideas?!
Happy art! The walls in my apartment, specifically my bedroom, are quite bare and I need to add some pieces to my collection. I picked up a 9×12 of this from Rue La La yesterday to hang in my bedroom. I figure seeing that will help me start each day on a positive note and maybe the annoying things life tends to throw at a person won’t seem so bad. Plus, BRIGHT COLORS! I can’t wait til it ships!
Random doodling. The other day before heading into the lab, I decided to just do some doodles in a notepad. I haven’t had the urge to do that in a long while and I hope this means my artistic side is coming out of hibernation. The first is of a Twi’lek (hello, Star Wars geekery) and the second is from a webcomic I used to read in my collegiate days (diesel sweeties to be exact). I wasn’t joking when I said I am a Nerd Girl. Seriously. :)
And most importantly, some special people’s birthdays are spreading joy to my little nerdy heart. I’d like to wish a very happy birthday to my beer buddy and fellow Philly girl Jordan and another happy birthday to my mini-me Anna, who of all my sisters looks the most like me.
What are your plans for the weekend ahead? What’s making you happy lately?
