What’s Making Me Happy {15}

June 10, 2012

This week has been exhausting.

And I didn’t even go to BEA. I think I just received the exhaustion through osmosis or something.

But even though it’s been a tiring week, it’s been a really great week. I got to meet lots of book bloggers face to face after talking with them on the Internets for, like, a year, and I finally found a yoga studio I like that’s both affordable and near work, and I did something right at work for once, and I saw ABT’s Onegin (and it was SERIOUSLY GREAT OMG), and today I get to go eat my weight in BBQ and then watch the Tony Awards.

Hell yes, y’all. Hell. Yes.

But there were a few other things making me happy this week too.

1. Even British Royalty Likes a Flyover

Look at how happy Harry is!

2. Trolling Pride & Prejudice

Apparently this happened on YouTube? I have no idea how/why, but it is HILARIOUS. I wholeheartedly endorse this.

3. Stuff You Missed in History Class Podcast

I’m a big nerd and really enjoy learning stuff. And lately I’ve started to enjoy learning stuff via podcast.

The other day, Boyfriend was telling me about how he was listening to a podcast from How Stuff Works about family crests (he’s now designing one. He’ll probably tattoo it on his body.) I decided that maybe I should check out the How Stuff Works podcast, and when I searched for it in iTunes, it also brought up the Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast.

So I listened and it’s really fun! The topics are incredibly diverse, and the hosts, though a little NPR-sounding, are really good at presenting the information. I’ve been listening to them non-stop since about Tuesday and definitely recommend it if you’re at all interested in, you know, things.

4. Shiba Inu Puppy Cam!

THE CUTE. IT IS INTENSE.

Also, I definitely watched this for EIGHT HOURS on Friday. I am not ashamed.

5. Call Me Maybe with Jimmy Fallon & The Roots

It is exactly as delightful as you think it will be.

6. Books and Book People

Book Expo America was this past week, which means that tons of bloggers and authors and cheerleaders of books were in NYC. You’d think that since I work in publishing I’d be all over BEA, but turns out, not so much.

Which was totally ok, actually. I mean, I wanted to be at BEA to see peoples and snag books and meets authors (*cough Myra McEntire cough*) but, as it happens, book people are awesome. So I ended up hanging out with several peeps outside of the blackhole that is the Javits Center and some of them snagged me the two books I really wanted to snag! Because book people are THE BEST.

And those are the things making me happy! Enjoy your Sunday!
