I think all undergrads should be forced to watch this entrancing video from Haunted Love during orientation.  Maybe high schoolers too. And pretty much everyone at the public library. It would improve library manners immensely and also would remind everyone that librarians are not to be trifled with. They are silent but deadly (in the good, ninja-y way, not that other way) and know just what to do with the body.

Also, I’m majorly coveting those shoes. And that skirt.

Originally seen on the delightful Voice of Reason 

Even though the next semester is looming large in only a few weeks, there are lots of things to be excited and happy about right now, not the least of which is that no less than three (count ’em three) members of my friend-family are starting exciting new career-furthering jobs in the next month. Hooray and congrats to all of them.

Other things I’m pretty jazzed about right now:

The understated, sneakily moving, music-filled delight that is this movie. I want the soundtrack immediately. Running constantly, please.

According to this, Sunny is coming to DVD! Hooray.

Finally finally the food scientists have listened to my silent pleas. I need to get my hands on this as soon as possible.

Also, meerkats.

As I was walking home from campus today an old man in a van pulled up next to me and asked me if I wanted a ride so I didn’t have to walk out in the cold. To be fair, it was about 10 degrees outside but it still was a little surprising and slightly creepy. Of course I declined politely because I learned my Stranger Danger lessons long ago. Plus I had Tom Petty’s American Girl playing on my iPod at that particular moment and it was all just a little too “Put the lotion in the basket” for me.

In related iPod news, listening to the Beach Boys in an effort to trick yourself into feeling warmer outside SEEMS like it would work, but it in fact does not. They Might Be Giants works better.

And, in keeping with today’s music theme, I have had this song stuck in my head for about 3 weeks, and many of you know how dangerous it is when I get something stuck in my head. Warning: Don’t press play unless you want to be infected as well.

These things are making me smile today. First, this birdie-filled video:

and also this from xkcd:
