a monday roundup of random stuff.

GUYS. Guess what? I’m officially done with grad school. Do you know what that means?! I’ll tell you: I get to wear a hood and stand out in the sun wearing polyester on Friday, and I get my nights and weekends back. Let’s celebrate with a collection of assorted finds from the Internets:

Happy Monday, everyone! And a happy belated birthday to co-blogger Kathleen! I think we successfully proved this weekend that your mid-twenties don’t really have to be any different from college. Thank goodness for that.

youtube clip of today: unusual entrance.

So today (technically yesterday, as it is now past midnight) was my birthday, and it was great. Relative to other recent birthdays of mine, “great” means “no major disasters occurred.” Let’s just say that my last two birthdays set the bar really, really low. But this year, I ate lots of yummy food and was reminded that I have lots of wonderful friends and family, and that’s what birthdays are for.

Then, as I was perusing my blogroll, I found this video:

It sort of made my already great day. I went from grinning to tearing up to outright weeping with joy by the end of the video. Guess 23 won’t be all that different from 22.

my my, dr. seuss is 105!

dr-seuss-birthdayPerhaps some of you care, perhaps you’re just looking for another reason to party– an alcoholiday, if you will.  (I came up with that on Fat Tuesday, appropriately enough.  I’m sure someone else has thought of it before.  I’d never heard it.  I want credit.)  As if a snow day wasn’t enough of an excuse, I’m pleased to tell you that it’s Dr. Seuss’ birthday!  The king of the AABB rhyme scheme, whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, would be 105 today.  I’m sure if he were here with us, the Great Birthday Bird would pay him a visit.  Heavens to Betsy!  You don’t know about the Great Birthday Bird?  Well, I’ll let the good Doctor do some explaining:

The Great Birthday Bird!  And, so far as I know, Katroo is the only place Birthday Birds grow.  This bird has a brain, he’s most beautifully brained with the brainiest bird-brain that’s ever been trained.  He was trained by the most splendid Club in this nation, the Katroo Happy Birthday Asso-see-eye-ation.  And, whether your name is Pete, Polly or Paul, when your birthday comes round, he’s in charge of it all.

So now you know!  Seuss-style rhetoric is the best.  You can read more Seuss quotes here.  Even though I get older, his books never get old.  Oh, and check Google.  Their page is really cute today.  Oh, and if you want to be RESPECTABLE and not use Dr Seuss’ birthday as an excuse to drink but still want to celebrate, you should, at the very least, make yourself some green eggs and ham.
