holdouttrout: not your ordinary fish (weather)
[personal profile] holdouttrout
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 totally cute. I was KINDA spoiled for it being a setup, but I did a more-than-admirable job not letting on that I knew any such thing to my parents while we were watching. I love how well Kate knows Castle. Best birthday present indeed!

Other things which I am excited about: Iron Man 3. STILL. [personal profile] splash_the_cat 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.

I enjoyed Castle, too. I had no inkling it was a setup, so I was quite tense thru parts of the episode, and really thought it was a perfect 100th episode for them.

I was kinda glad I knew--I think otherwise it would have felt too OTT for me as far as the humor went. But I really liked it!

I watched Castle last night, too, and what's hilarious is I twigged the replaced video feed in the very first scene for the actual case (too many spy novels/movies, I think? lol), but still somehow had NO IDEA what Castle was watching was a setup. *fails at subtext* Anyway, it was definitely totally cute!

I am glad you did not actually get mauled by a dog! Eek.

Hee! I didn't get that it was a replaced video feed, but I was sort of wondering if it had been an attempt at faking a death that turned all-too real.

I totally envy your weather. And yes to everything Castle :)

That is all.

Well, your envy caused the rain clouds to appear, so... yeah.
