The other day I was eating a cheese stick when the door knocked. I mean, someone knocked on it. Immediately I was suspicious. I commanded the cats to battle stations (apparently someone rewrote the code during the holiday and battle stations are in the closet and under the bed now) and opened the door. To my surprise, it was a special delivery of the graphic novel Laika, about the first mammal in space (I'm assuming microbes were on Sputnik). The delivery guy had an amused look on his face, possibly because my utter bafflement was accentuated by the way I was clutching tightly to my string cheese and juggling the package and the electronic signer with my left hand.
I've only read the first chapter, but just the mere fact of its existence, and that someone I only met once almost two years ago was thoughtful enough to send it to me, makes me smile every time I see the cover.
Also something which makes me smile, laugh out loud in fact, is this 'article' on the 9 most badass bible verses. I usually don't read those things past the jump, but I was really glad I did. I think #4 was my favorite entry, but it's a tough call.
