Grace in Small Things Part 47 of 365

  1. 9-year old Oskar Schell, the narrator of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. I’m listening to the audio version of this extremely good and incredibly awesome book and I want Oskar to ride with me to and from work so he can talk to me and also so I can ride in the carpool lane. I adore this kid. If you’ve read the book, please don’t post any spoilers. I’m not too far into it!
  2. making a faux 50/50 bar with a scoop each of light slow-churned vanilla bean ice cream and raspberry sorbet. YUM.
  3. Things are moving along on my work weight-loss challenge. I got the OK from HR to post fliers to promote it, and IT gave my co-worker and me a page on our intranet where we can post tips, recipes, photos, whatever!
  4. I laughed harder today at work than I ever have (at work). The president of the segment I work for asked me to recommend a site where he could send a raunchy birthday e-card to a friend. I showed him my favorite site for cards, and asked if he liked this one. I have never seen him (or many other people) laugh as hard as he did. He immediately backed away from the desk, laughing so hard he had to bend over. Bent in half, he walked around his desk to the table, wheezing that silent laugh. I was cracking up to the point of crying, more at his reaction than the card since I’d seen it before. After we addressed it and hit send, I left his office, while he was still laughing. I could hear him all the way from my desk on the other side of the office. It was…legendary.
  5. the fact that I just cannot seem to get enough of Barney Stinson
