Wonderful Stuff Wednesday: Could It Be Spring!?

Wednesday, April 9, 2014

We've officially made it to the mid-week point, everyone! Throw yourself a parade! At the very least, have a cookie or something. I'm failing on this one, because I have a banana, 100 calories Greek yogurt, and an English muffin, none of which are very appealing to me right now. At least there's coffee?

Today is not so bad. It's not raining, and it supposed to go up to 65 degrees today! That's practically an excuse to break out the swimsuits, and actually, our office admin is wearing sandals. We are clearly desperate for spring around here. I mean, between yesterday's free ice cream, the fact that the daffodils are sprouting up all over the hospital campus, and my ability to use the sunroof on my car, I'm saying spring might as well be here. Check out this forecast!

I mean, sure there some thunderstorms on Friday, but it won't be freezing! Time to throw a party.

And speaking of throwing a party, it's Wonderful Stuff Wednesday! I've decided that the banner for WSW needed some updating, so this one is in honor of spring being (hopefully) around the corner. And without further ado, here are some more party-worthy things that I've read, seen, or heard.


First up, Ingrid Michaelson is releasing a new album on April 15th! You can stream it for free right now on iTunes, and trust me, you want to do that. She's playing in Philly on May 30th, and while it's at my least favorite venue in the entire world (The Electric Factory), I'm still probably going to go with my friend Patricia. 

Are you having trouble Adulting? Hey, it happens to the best of us. For pete's sake, I Gorilla-taped my pants hem yesterday, I'm not fooling anyone. Fortunately for us, A Practical Wedding has a series on Tiny Steps to Adulthood, and this post about wills and end-of-life planning was excellent. 

I wrote the other day about the lack of scientific literacy in our society, and this article speaks directly to that. There are links to articles about how to read and understand the scientific literature, as well as how to evaluate medical information on the internet.

If you're like me, you might be confused as to how to make blog buttons. Well, be confused no more, thanks to Bon's super easy tutorial!

I don't usually put much stock in horoscopes or astrology in general, but my friend Pam was talking about hers and so I looked into mine. It was pretty funny, and slightly uncanny how accurate it was. I know that most of the time, those things are so vague that you can interpret them to fit any situation, but I still had a good time reading through mine. Apparently, eclipses can screw things up, so here's how to survive one from an astrological perspective.

If you're looking for something to make you laugh, check this out. You all know how much I love octopuses, so you can imagine how much I enjoyed this iteration of "True Facts About...":

And to wrap things up, here are some of the latest photos I've snapped of some wonderful things in my life:

Free Cone/Cup Day!
New haircut!

This fruit is uniq(ue).
 And that, my friends, is that. What is wonderful in your life lately? I hope it's a long list! :)
