Thing #1 - One of my students yesterday randomly asked me if I'd ever seen Firefly. Of course I immediately proceeded to geek out hardcore to the poor kid. I think I scared him a little bit, but maybe not as much as I should have, since he later asked me if I had any "hot single friends under the age of 25", though he told me today that "up to 29 would be okay." Geeky boy with ambition FOR THE LULZ!

Thing #2 - Teaching sewing class today, when I heard one of the young men singing under his breath while he was piecing his quilt together. What was he singing? Repo!Man! We then proceeded to flail and geek out together, singing pretty much the whole damn soundtrack while I helped him pin quilt pieces. SO FULL OF WIN!

Thing #3 - Was bored during planning period, and wanted to show the kids that it was possible to make something cool out of the scads of retro fabric that is in the fabric room, so I picked up a piece of navy blue satin with red polka dots and a piece of sturdy red linen and whipped together a cute reversible totebag. I haven't really done anything like that before, but it didn't take me all that long, once I went through the mental mathematics of how to pin it so the lining would come out right with the handles on the outside and all of that jazz. It turned out pretty awesome, if I do say so myself, and all the teenagers were coveting it and trying to talk me into making them one. I told them I'd be happy to teach them how to make one, if they want to learn, and several are going to go buy cute fabric this weekend so they can have purses/totes/bookbags. I AM (apparently) COOL!

Thing #4 - I won a free e-book of steampunk erotica on one of the communities I'm on. I'll be reading it and reviewing it as soon as I get the chance. FREE EROTICA ROCKS!

Thing #5 - Bought some new bras, which I desperately needed. Can't wait for them to arrive. YAY TIT SUPPORT!

Thing #6 - Strongly thinking that I'll get my first ink when my federal return gets here. Look at me, stimulating the economy! HOORAY FOR TATTOOS!

Tomorrow is Coraline and OKRF Mixer, both of which I am looking forward to. Yay for good things!
