Random Thursday: A Random Assortment of Happy-Making Stuff*

Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon this week in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.

Here’s a bunch of stuff that made me happy that there’s stuff like this.


Let’s Try for S’more Efficiency!

Watson thinks the rake is brilliant, and it really is,
But there’s something else that captured my total attention:

More Smores

Me:  “Honey?  Have you ever thought about Peanut Butter Cup S’mores?”

My Husband:  “No . . .  But I am now . . .  A lot.”



I have the biggest braincrush on Clark Gregg.
Even if I wasn’t already staking out my spot in front of the TV in preparation for ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD,
which is premiering later this month,**
his sheer enthusiasm for the show and his gratitude to the fans of Agent Coulson would have me tuning in.

The whole cast—already showing fabulous chemistry—is obviously stoked.

And so am I.

Nineteen days to go from . . . mark.


I’m My Own . . . Um . . . 

This is for Lyra.

I'm My Own Daughter

She knows why.

(Thanks, Watson)


A Time Suck for your EYES


1.  Wait until you finish reading this post, because you aren’t coming back anytime soon and there’s a video of Tom Hiddleston eating cookies down there.

2. Click on the image.

3. Select a cat from the convenient menu.

4.  Move the Mouse around.

5. Repeat from 2 for longer than you thought possible before your first run through.


You’re welcome.




As Promised:

Tom Hiddleston and cookies.

Gratification indeed.


*Your Happy-Making Stuff may vary—but if you’re bothering with the footnotes, the odds are good that it doesn’t, much.

**Don’t worry—i will be reminding you often.

  1. GAH!! Love it!
    The fact that I not only followed it but knew all of the pertinent information should frighten both of us.
    In other news, peanut butter cup smores. Seriously, this is the best blog ever. Ever. I should bring those on this run weekend so while I’m out on the trail I can say, “The sooner I get back, the sooner I have peanut-butter-cup-smore-goodness-from-above, The sooner I get back, the sooner I have peanut-butter-cup-smore-goodness-from-above…ommmmm…”

    • Great! We can analyze it together and squee over our favorite parts—it’ll be Leverage all over again!

      The only thing not to love about peanut butter cup s’mores is the undeniable fact that there are only two cups per package, which means there’s a LOT of wrappers to deal with afterwards. 🙂

  2. Your s’mores rake convinced me of your brilliant. Your peanut butter cup suggestion convinced me of your snack genius. And then your link to the CATLEIDOSCOPE! convinced me that you have complete and utter control over the internet. I want no other tour guide than you.
