This is so awesome, my geekness exploded. (And not just because the article used pics from the Doctor Who episode "Being Human.") You should all endeavor to do something awesome with your Leap Second tonight. Make a wish. Make it a good one.

Oh, FUN.

Happy Days meme: Day Two

Thing that made me happy today: caffeine. Which reminds me…what exactly *is* on the end of the Starbucks swizzle stick? Is this a mermaid with a cup of coffee? Really? Is she flying? Coffee doesn’t steam underwater… Discuss.
