The Cult of Lincoln

It's time for Thursday's Happy Things! As I am on my four-day weekend, I refuse to even think about work, so my Happy Things will all be stuff that happened after I left at 5:45.
  1. I got on the bus half an hour early, the 6:30 instead of the 7. Yay for not having to stand around in the blistering sun an additional 30 minutes!
  2. The bus people had removed a pair of seats, and I sat in the row behind them, achieving infinite leg room!
  3. The guy I sat next to was a total geek. He gushed about Ren faires and Tolkien, and we exchanged book recs. He recommended The Life of Oscar Wao and the assorted works of Murakami, and I recced him the series I was reading (Red Seas Under Red Skies, sequel to The Lies of Locke Lamora) and the Thursday next series for his wife.
  4. KAT AND SARAH ARE MINE ALL MINE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! There was much hugging and tackleglomping and also yawning, because the bus driver was incompetent and got us to DC an hour late. Clearly, the Karma Police found out I'd only paid a dollar for my ticket and decided to penalize the entire bus for my cheek. Hopefully, the return trip should not be as dire, as that ticket was purchased legitimately.
  5. I told Kat and Sarah the opening sentence to the twelfth Dresden book. Kat's face turned bright pink as she squeeeeeed her mind off! I'm so glad I was prudent enough to wait until we were parked, because I'm confident we would have had an accident had we been driving.

OMG Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao is awesome. Dominicans in the hoooouse. Murakami is good too, or at least the 2 of his I've read (Kakfa on the Shore and Norwegian Wood).

Have an awesome time at the ren fair(e)!
