Pop Culture Happy Hour is a weekly podcast from NPR on, well, pop culture. The hosts basically just discuss movies, books, comics, geek culture, music, and anything else going on in the pop culture world. At the end of each podcast, they each list what's making them happy that week. I love the idea, so I'm going to co-opt it for the blog and try to make it a weekly post. I'm a huge podcast fan and this is one that I never miss. If you're a pop culture junkie, you should definitely be listening,
Don't even laugh. Luke and I have been watching this series at night (it's my first time ever) and I love it almost as much as I loved Voyager. We laugh out loud during every episode and their total and complete earnestness combined with the 80's special effects and horrible writing are absolutely priceless. And the whole thing is on Netflix, so there you go.
Might as well get all my geek out at once. During our weekend getaway, I rediscovered my love for Catan with Jacki, Jennie, Crystal, and Andrea. We played several games (one of which I won - happy dance) and I totally got back into it. It's been a long time since I played and I can't let that happen again.
Ok last thing, just in case you're starting to think I'm a total nerd with no outside interests:
I'm also a girl and the girly part of me is obsessed with this lip balm. It's got enough color that I feel like it's noticeable, but doesn't feel like lipstick on my mouth. I'm super sensitive to textures and feelings, and I can't stand the way glosses feel (sticky) or lipsticks (gummy), but this is perfect. It feels like chapstick on, but it has the pigment of a lipstick or gloss.
Those are the things that are making me happy this week. What about you?
