Things That Make Me Happy

My first recurrent post! I thought it would be nice to start out cheerful.

So, this is going to be an ever-changing posted list of things that are making me smile.

List Nombre Une
Sister Claire Contest ~ A contest for the two-year anniversary of this very fun blog that I'm definitely a fan of, and that my little sister has started to like as well. I don't think I'm going to win, but I'm working on a collage of the titular Claire, which is at least entertaining for me.
My new little toys, I think they're called Skelepets. I loves them. <3 They were only like four dollars at Winners. I love the way they feel, they're really smooth and soft, and just so cute~ Also pictured and making me happy, "The $50,000 Stove Handle" by Gordon Pape. I was thrilled to find it in the library, it's always been my favourite book written by Grandad. It's funny, and it's just somehow really nice to see this different perspective of these people I've known all my life, but in a different context and dynamic. I don't know if it would be just as wonderful a read to other people, but it's funny and I enjoy it on several levels.
Ornament Coke! I don't know if it's a new thing or what, but I've never seen them before, and I just love them. They're cute~! All round and full of delicious caffeine.

This picture of Serena Williams Eee! I just can't get over this picture, it is PERFECT. I've never been very cognizant of Miss Williams, aware vaguely of her being a very good tennis player. But she has the exact same body type that one of my characters has always had in my head. I've been looking for a good reference picture and this is amazing! Everytime I tried 'muscular women' I've just gotten bodybuilder ladies which are as far from what I envision for my character as Paris Hilton.

The 12 Days of Christmas EEE! I used to watch this movie each and every christmas, multiple times, and would make my little brother watch it as well. Then we lost the VHS tape, when I was...probably ten-ish. So finding this on youtube just makes me so incredibly happy and nostalgic.


  1. It's not really backwards...that's the right way the laptop was positioned facing that side of the desk. Just the...letters are backwards. xD I guess my webcam is also a mirror.
