And I love nerds.
Here he is geeking out over being next to Jeff Bridges at a Comicon panel for their movie, The Seventh Son. Guys who do *this* face are awesome:
Yay! Eye candy, eye candy, eye candy…!
In other news, my sister has created some possible tattoo designs for me. So far, they are very cute. Here’s one I love:
I did my 4:45 workout with the team this morning; I didn’t dream I ate something and ended up missing the whole thing, like last week. I also went further than ever, and got to see a hot air balloon being inflated and then taking off, and the charred skeleton of an 18-wheeler that apparently caught fire and was now resting in the back lot of some mechanic/body shop business. It was kind of cool.
A little while ago, I decided to go donate blood. It’s been about 4 years since the debacle that happened last time. (They couldn’t find a vein in my right arm after poking around a lot; they found one in the left arm but hit a tendon first, which is the grossest sensation in the world… and then, since so much time had passed I ended up fainting on the bloodmobile, and then again later when my friends drove me home from work. I passed out right on my front lawn, inches from the front door! So yes, that was a crappy experience.) Today, everything went fine and although there was so trouble locating my vein (I have “small veins” according to the lady), eventually it was in and not painful at all. I had copious amounts of Capri Sun juice and Famous Amos cookies before I left, too, so there would be none of that lightheaded, gonna-pass-out business.
I don’t know what possessed me to do this today, but whatever, I guess. I do know that doing all this stuff for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society gets you thinking about all the other ways you can help sick people. And then the Norway shooting situation has just horrified me. I was thinking if this happened here, god forbid, we’d need a lot of blood for people. I’ve felt guilty for awhile now for pussing out and not donating again after that last time, and suddenly I felt brave enough to go for it again. It felt pretty cool to make that decision.
Well, I’m off to spend the rest of the afternoon lounging around, reading Divergent and probably watching a movie later or something. And keep this little black cat glued to me, apparently… right now, he is sleeping on my desk with his two hind legs draped over my right wrist and hand. As I type, his legs are moving as a result. Such a goofball! But it’s really neat to have a cat that does this, all the time. Gremlin occupies a much-needed place in this house. The Cuddler. Dare I say… the Snuggler?! Maybe!
I can’t help it. Here’s more Ben Barnes adorableness and/or weirdness. Anyone who is a fan who finds this blog, this is totally for you, too! We fans have to stick together and keep sharing these photos. I heart the internet. 🙂
(The fact that he would have this shirt, and wear it in public, only goes to show that yeah, this guy could be my soul mate. Oh yeeeeaaaaah.)
