what i’m looking forward to (& so should you…be…looking forward…to these things as well.)

Title fail.

So I’m feeling a little blue today, tots.  Many people hate Mondays, but I happen to think Tuesday is the worst day of the week.  Like, you can’t feel the righteous anger that Monday inspires, because on Tuesday, you’re supposed to just suck it up and face the week.  And on Tuesday, you can’t even feel the joy of Wednesday, which is hump day, signaling the half-way point of the work week and also the riotous glee of randomly humping someone or something.  Wait, you don’t do that part?  Hmm…maybe that’s just me…

So to perk myself back up, I decided to list some things that I can’t wait to add to my pantheon of happy-happy-joy-joy experiences.

1.  Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is opening July 15th.  That’s next week, chickens!  I’m excited to let my inner 12 year-old stuff herself with popcorn and candy whilst unabashedly weeping over the late, great, Albus Dumbledore.

2.  Album releases from those who continue to flog that dead pony, including:

The Dead Weather (Horehound July 14th)–I actually  like this band, but seriously, how many side projects does Jack White need?

Kenny Loggins (All Join In July 21st)–If it’s not a movie  soundtrack, I am sadly uninterested.  And so is everyone else.

Jordin Sparks (Battlefield July 21st)–Oh honey, your career was over before it began.

Sugar Ray (Music for Cougars July 21st)–At least Sugar Ray has come to terms with the fact that any fans they have left are of the aged variety.

3.  Fairs.  I love fairs.  Give me some carnies and a goat milking contest and I am a happy tot.

4.  True Blood every Sunday on HBO.  The show, now in its second season, just gets hotter (I’m sorry, but Alexander Skarsgård is rapidly becoming the new Delicious! Or maybe co-Delicious?).  Who else rejoiced when you found out that Lafayette is still alive?  Tip yo waitress!
