I am having a not so happy day.
So, how about 5 THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY RIGHT NOW.
01. Adam Rex's The True Meaning of Smekday
, which I already recced over here
Here is a moment from when Gratuity, the protagonist, first meets J.Lo:
"Then...then...I will have onto shoot with my gun!"
I jumped back, palms up. In all the excitement, I hadn't thought of that. My eyes darted to where his hips would be, if he had any. I frowned.
"You don't even have a gun!"
"Yes! YES!" he shouted, nodding furiously, as though I'd somehow proven his point. "NO GUN! So I will have to...have to..."
His whole body trembled.
"...SHOOT FORTH THE LASERS FROM MY EYEBALLS!"
I fell into a row of shelves. That one was new to me.
"Shoot forth the lasers?"
"SHOOT FORTH THE LASERS!"
"You can do that?"
The Boov hesitated. His eyes quivered. After a few seconds he replied, "Yes."
I squinted. "Well, if you shoot your eye lasers, then I'll have no choice but to...EXPLODE YOUR HEAD!"
"You humans can not to ex--"
"We can! We can too! We just don't much. It's considered rude."
The Boov thought about this for a moment.
"Then...we are needing a...truce. You are not to exploding heads, and I will to not do my DEVASTATING EYE LASERS."
"Okay," I agreed. "Truce."

02. Misha Fucking Collins:Click. It gets bigger. ;)( This picture still does things to me: )( Oh, and how about that one really distracting gif, too: )
03. DiNozzo/McGee, and NCIS' recent episode "Guilty Pleasures", which, I swear to God, had to have been the showrunners saying, "Here, Michael Weatherly, run with your 'DiNozzo and McGee are in lurve' idea."
OMG. That first scene? I almost literally flailed myself off the bed. Guys, just sleep together already. You'll be happier after, I promise.
I LOVE THEM SO MUCH I CAN'T STAND IT.
04. My ringtone, since I got my iPhone last summer, is the beginning of the Bad Horse Chorus
from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along-Blog
. (Up until "...it's high-ho Silver! Signed Bad Horse...")
sent me CDs of the band Elbow. I've only listened to one so far, but I really like them. I love it when people send me tunes.
