I almost got mauled by a dog today, and I think it shows how strange I am because I kind of count that as a highlight. I mean, if I'd actually gotten
mauled by a dog it would have been terrible, but as it is, I get to count it as a win. "Hey! I didn't get mauled by a dog today! What a fantastic day!"
(Okay, so the actual danger level was very low. There was just a very defensive dog off its leash in the neighborhood and it DID NOT LIKE STRANGE WOMAN IN ITS TERRITORY.)
The rest of the day wasn't bad either. We've been having fabulously warm spring weather the last few days. Sunday was the warmest 3/31 of record. Ever. By something like 6 degrees. I wore a pretty dress and did my hair in a french braid (myself!) and wore makeup and jewelry and sandals and looked TOTALLY cute.
(Best compliment: "I didn't recognize you. You look so beautiful!" This was followed by a horrified look from the complimentor, and I assured her I wouldn't take it amiss.)
Anyway, the weather today was great, and my boss took us all out for lunch and I got to do a fun project and complain about ridiculous form requirements from the home office. YAY.
I also just saw the 100th ep of Castle
, which was ( spoilers! )
Other things which I am excited about: Iron Man 3

has been keeping me extremely squeeful on tumblr by reposting lots of Tony and Pepper gifs. I always want to reblog them and hardly ever do because I'm PRETTY sure I don't have enough unique followers to justify reblogging 8,000,000 Tony/Pepper gifs.
I'm also re-reading Pride and Prejudice.
*happy sighs* I really like how Lizzie doesn't show up as a main character right away--though I think that actually frustrated me when I first tried to read it.
I'm... disappointed that goodreads is being bought by amazon. I don't use it a lot, but I don't really want a one-store platform. Bah.
