Even though this week has been busy school-work wise, it has been a great week so far 🙂  By the time I make it to the end of the day on Wednesday, I feel like I’m in the home stretch.  And it feels awesome.

The best of today was discovering something awesome while watching Jeopardy.  I was half watching and listening when I heard the Daily Double clue mention the name Sirius, and I was immediately tuned in.  The clue was something to the effect of “The rising of the star Sirius signifies this,” and what was the question/answer? The dog days of summer.  Let me just let everyone know that I’m somewhat obsessed with Sirius Black, so naturally, hearing his name alerted me, then finding out that J.K. Rowling is even more of a genius than I already knew she was absolutely made my night.  Sirius a.k.a. “The Dog Star.”  Hello.  Also, Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky.  Booyah.  I think that just about does it for my nerd allowance for today.
