This must be Thursday. I could never get the hang of Thursdays.
— Douglas Adams
Some of you “long-time readers” may remember a feature around here called Tuesday’s Things to Be Happy About. I stopped doing it about a year ago, but I decided I wanted to bring it back, both because I miss it and because I feel like I need something that forces me to post when I otherwise might let posting slide. I was going to call it Ten Things Tuesday, but I like the alliteration of this a little better, plus it’s not so ambitious, which will help me not feel not so much pressure.
I’ve been thinking about this for a little while now, but I wanted to go back through the old entries first and mark off in my little Happy Things notebook the ones that I’ve already used. That has proved to be a nearly impossible task, though, given the nearly 1400 items in the notebook. I did about three entries’ worth and decided it was hopeless. So, I’ll do my best not to repeat, but I’m not making any promises (I will, however, mark them off as I go along now so I won’t have this problem from here on out). Also, some items will probably be topical and will therefore not come from the notebook, since I’ve been slacking about keeping it up, but I will add them as they occur to me.
So, here we go:
1. those tiny bottles of condiments you get when you order room service
2. Friday Night Lights recaps on TWoP
3. the secret way I found to use Google Talk at work, which is great since David started his new job this week and we can’t use the internal IM anymore.
Tune in next week to see what exciting things I’m happy about then!
Also: Happy Birthday, Nate!
