The Playlist

Published September 26, 2015 by ia84

One thing about our wedding that makes me super happy, is the fact that multiple people have told us how much fun they thought it was.  I know I may be biased, but I think they’re right.  Probably one of my favorite things from our wedding is the playlist.

Back when we first started dating, one thing we would do is put YouTube on the Chromecast, and we’d both keep adding videos to the stream.  It made for many hours of inexpensive entertainment.  Since we weren’t having a dance at the wedding, the boy had the idea of putting together a giant YouTube playlist that would run in the background throughout the reception.  It’s filled with nerd music, parodies, and some pretty random weirdness.  It’s also a pretty good look at what entertains the two of us.  So, whether you were at the wedding and confused by the quiet YouTube videos, or just wanting to watch an eccentric stream of videos, I’m going to share the playlist with all of you!

NaNo update

Okay, so it’s day 5.

I’ve reached 7,387 words.

I’m starting to like what I’m writing and feeling like I have a smidgen of an idea of where this story may be going.  I’ve hit a bit of a wall, though.  I’m taking a break and watching Castle (so far there have been at least 3 Firefly references).  Hopefully I’ll jump past my block.

Happiness is…

It’s the start of a new week, and it seems like it’s a good time to make a list of things that make me happy.

1.  Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog

Okay, stop whatever you’re doing and dedicate the next 42 minutes to watching this:

Before I saw this I didn’t realize that Nathan Fillion could sing.  Really, though, this is awesome.  Neil Patrick Harris, Felicia Day, and Nathan Fillion directed by Joss Whedon.  The same guy who brought such awesomeness as Firefly and The Avengers to us.  If you absolutely can’t stop and watch it right now, it’s supposed to be airing on the CW in October.  “Home is where the heart is, so your real home’s in your chest.”  and “Oh goodness, look at my wrist, I have to go.” are just a few of the great lines from this.

2.  Lemonade

3.  The mini-Joslyn art museum on my wall.

 

Okay, this isn’t the best picture, but let me explain.  Those are all postcards that I got at the actual Joslyn Art Museum.  I have my favorite two pictures from the museum up, along with several other pictures from there that I really like.  When I look at them, it’s like getting a moment at home.

4.  The pile of reading that I’m wading through.

 

These are just three of the books I’m using this semester.  I’m loving getting to read fun stuff.  (Okay, I’ll be honest, grammar isn’t fun.  In fact, I’m pretty sure that’s where fun goes to die.)  Right now I’m reading parts of The Illiad.  The Odyssey  and Beowulf are rapidly approaching.

5.  Having my own room.

6.  The Piano Guys

I posted one of their videos the other day.  I’ve been watching some of their other videos, and I’m really impressed.  It’s not just piano that they are awesome with, either.

7.  This:

 

This was a joke gift given to my grampa when I was really little.  At the time I didn’t understand the joke, but I get it now.  I claimed this when we were sorting things after the funeral.  It’s now hanging above my desk.  (And yes, there’s a bathtub playmate inside it.  If anyone wants to know what’s inside, just ask and I’ll post a pic.)

8.  My bedding

I’m a big fan of my bedding set.  It looks like newsprint, and it’s reversible.  Plus, there’s matching pillow shams!  I really, really love this bedding.

9.  Taco in a Bag

This is my Monday tradition here at school.  Every Monday afternoon (provided it’s not a holiday weekend) the dining center’s To-Go special is Taco-in-a-Bag.  This is the closest I get to decent Mexican food here in ND (which is quite sad when you think about it), so it makes me really, really happy!  For the uninitiated, Taco-in-a-Bag is a bag of chips (lunch box size, I get Doritos) with a scoop of taco meat, some lettuce, nacho cheese, and salsa.  (You can put tomatoes, sour cream, and whatever else you want in, I’m just a super picky eater.)  Then you kind of close the bag, squish it all together, and then you eat it.  Sounds weird, looks gross, tastes amazing!

10. Comments!

I always get excited when someone comments, but I was uber excited this week when I saw that someone I’ve never met outside of the internet commented!  It probably sounds silly, but I find it amazing that these little posts can be read by anyone, anywhere.
