To celebrate, here's a smorgasbord of things that I think are darn tootin' excellent.
1. Dinotastic Discovery
A friend sent me a link to this excellent story about a little girl who discovered a brand new species of dinosaur!! They've named it after her and everything- not too shabby for someone who isn't tall enough to ride a rollercoaster!

I'm going to get me to the Isle of Wight STAT so I can find a Katiesaurus!!!
2. Complimentary, my dear Watson
Who isn't a sucker for having nice things said about them?! I've had two particularly grin-enducing comments recently from the brilliant Jen and kind-hearted Charis which really made my day:
If there's one thing I want my hypothetical great-great-grandchildren to be told about me, it's that I made people laugh. Whether on purpose, or by accident...
3. Setting up my own Starbucks
I've had my eye on some of these Monin syrups for a while- the kind they have lining the shelves of the barrista section in Generic Coffee Chains across the globe. They're the only reason I'll ever consider spending £3.50 on something that costs aforementioned Evil Consumerist Dark Lords of Coffee approximately 3.5p to make. So I decided to buy my own instead. In your FACE, Captain Starbucks.

These bottles are going to last me until I'm at least 75. I scarcely ever drink coffee really, and there's no chance of them going off before I can finish them because they contain absolutely nothing natural what.so.ever. If there's ever a nuclear war I'm pretty sure getting into a bath full of this stuff would keep me safe from the fallout.
4. Rainy walks home
I'm sure I've waffled on before about how, given the option, I would just live in pyjamas and grandad jumpers and forgo normal clothes. Some days I just want to Pyjama Up as soon as I get home from work. Which means I don't really mind if a sudden turn in the weather makes my fifteen-minute walk home slightly wetter than anticipated. It's the perfect excuse to towel-dry my hair and fling on my PJs at 4pm. Bliss.
5. Dancing like a loon
I know I'm about 9 months late to the Bruno Mars party, but now I'm here I'm heading straight to the dance floor. I haven't been able to get this song out of my head for the last month; and every time I hear it I want to flail about grinning like a loon. Dancing is weird, huh?
Have you discovered (or rediscovered) anything good recently? Please do share!
