Today was an all around momentous day, I love it when that happens! First and foremost, I reached the legend...wait for it...dary mark of 25 followers! *Tosses computer aside, runs victory lap, examines now broken laptop* It's an odd feeling because initially followers weren't a main priority, but they are like Pringles, once you pop you can't stop (I compare you all to Pringles in the most loving way). Now that I'm at 25 I get the feeling I accomplished a goal I didn't know I had. So thank you all. Oh, and before I forget, if you are following me and I'm not following you (I think I am, but I get the "too much McDonalds" in the pit of my stomach feeling that someone is left out) please let me know! Also, because I didn't initially start out wanting followers, I'm still adjusting to writing to actual people instead of just myself, so bear with me please.
Alright next order of business, today at work I was running around telling everyone that at 12:34 and 56 seconds it would be 12:34:56 on 7/8/09. As exciting as I'm sure you all see that this is, people were not feeling my enthusiasm at 7:30 (thank you coffee!). So I ran around all day ate lunch in a hurry then turned on the atomic clock at my desk and waited with iPhone at the ready to catch this little beauty (please save all nerd comments until the end):
Annnnnddd after that my day was pretty much done as far as I'm concerned haha. But in all seriousness I basically checked out at that time. After work squeezed in some dinner and now I'm in my room alone, blogging and watching Practical Magic and wishing I had magical powers. When I was little Matilda was my movie, I would watch it and then practice and for a while I thought I was a sassy little witch that could make baby carrots stop mid-flight and turn around.
Well that whole paragraph did nothing to stop the nerd comments.
Also I forgot to mention that I finished The Book Theif. It was such a good book, I almost started over but then decided against it and opted to start Like the Red Panda, it's pretty good so far. But definitely check out The Book Theif if you are looking for some summer reading.
Last but not least, at Mr. O's request, a comic:
P.S. I have a contest in mind just figuring out the logistics, don't get crazy excited, but I think it should be fun!
P.P.S. Title song: Cobra Starship feat. Leighton Meister (who knew she could sing?) caught in my head all day, love the earlier Cobra best, but this has potential.
