Discovery of the Day: Some Goodbyes are Easier Than Others

Hard to believe I was only 25 when he took office. Who'd have thunk we'd wind up like this. So before this gets awkward let's just say goodbye.

Discovery of the Day: Those Dancing Days

The most random video from the Swedish group Those Dancing Days. Why not start the year off on a quirky note. We need a bit o fun to mark this (hopefully) momentous year.

Good luck to you all.

Discovery of the Day: Even Monkeys Have More Coordination Than I Do

As I slip and slide my way across my sheet of ice parking lot it is humbling to realize that I am a low creature. One with no balance or coordination. As I look out my window as the snow piles up, I know it is only a matter of time before I wind up planted firmly on my butt in a mound of icy coldness. Have I mentioned it isn't even winter yet? I need to find me one of those beach librarian positions ASAP.

In the meantime, MONKEYS ICE SKATING!

Discovery of the Day: Missy Higgins

I was driving to work today and I heard this song "Where I Stood" and I thought "Great new Fiona Apple song" until I learned it wasn't Fiona Apple at all but some girl named Missy Higgins. She's got a great moody alterna chick vibe to her with just a hint of country and a little bit of blues. I highly recommend you check her out. Plus I'm loving her hair in this video. I have crazy curly hair that I can never control. A part of me wants to chop it off to try to get the look in this video but I'm afraid I'd wind up with frizzy Q'tip hair or something equally dreadful. I did color my hair darker for fall but sadly hardly anyone noticed. What's with that?! Maybe I should just dye it bright blue to see if it gets any reaction. Ah well. Karma will one day kick in so in the next life I'll have nice straight hair!

Discovery of the Day: Lee Pace

There is nothing I enjoy so much on a rainy Sunday as laying on my couch in my pajamas watching semi-pretentious movies that would make my father cringe. Today I did just that and watched "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day" starring Amy Adams and Frances McDormand. Very cute 1930's era farce set in England. Lots of great costumes and killer hairstyles. For a reward I discovered a very yummy fellow by the name of Lee Pace who played the love interest, Michael. He's kind of scruffy, slightly quirky, and completely adorable. Doesn't hurt that he looks good in a suit sitting behind a piano. Oddly enough he also stars in the other movie I picked up at the library this week, The Fall. Double dose of Mr. Pace. I'm eagerly awaiting the next free night I have to dig in. Seeing as there is no end to the rain in sight for us, I'm thinking that day will be right around the bend.

Discovery of the Day: A Change Is Gonna Come

Can it be that the day of change is here?

Today for the first time in the longest time I woke up feeling truly hopeful about life in general. You don't realize sometimes how much the stresses of life can take pieces of your spirit away. But today is a good day. Life isn't easy but what can't you accomplish if you really believe. Enjoy today everybody!!!

Discovery of the Day: Colbert Hates Canton

I love this clip for two reasons. 1) It's Stephen Colbert being Stephen Colbert. Say no more. 2) I work in Canton and find it hysterical that we be found either good or bad. Being as it is a crappy cold snowy day and it isn't even November yet, I think I'd sign up to move down to Canton, Texas and deal with the monkeys! As an added bonus, I find it slightly amusing that Canton, Ohio will now be associated with Hitlers Ass Crack for a huge segment of the population. Thanks Colbert!
