Thanks to that one beginning sentence, this week's post over at In the Mood for Gratitude was written a little differently than usual. This post wasn't just a random list of the things I was grateful for in the last seven days, but instead I focused on my five senses and how they related to what I'd taken note of this past week.
And that inspired me to write this post!
My Short List of Funny, Cool, and/or Interesting Things I've Encountered This Week
1. Seattle Chocolates are EPIC.
My boss went on vacation to Washington State last week to visit her daughter, and she brought back a box of assorted Seattle Chocolates truffles. I decided to try a mint chocolate one and...well, I think my taste buds exploded. Seriously. If you've never tried them, you must. You absolutely must!
2. CVS likes Lindsey Buckingham!
I walked into our local CVS on Wednesday and immediately recognized the voice of Lindsey Buckingham singing his 1992 hit Soul Drifter over the sound system. Being a huge fan, I hate to think this was a coincidence, and yes, I fangirled just a little in the aisle (relax, nobody saw me). Out of the Cradle, the album that song is from, is my favorite Lindsey solo album, and I could just hum along with those songs for hours!

3. I discovered PaperBackSwap.com.
A friend of mine has been using this book exchange website to get rid of her unwanted books for awhile now, and although she's told me about it before I just signed up today. So far I've got 4 books of mine listed to swap; you earn 2 credits from the site after you list 10. And it's a 1 for 1 swap: each book of yours that you give to someone else earns you 1 credit, which is good toward 1 book of your choice (paperbacks, hardcovers, audio books, textbooks, and more)! I can't wait to start swapping; I hope that someone out there is looking for the books I've got listed!
4. I love this dog. Seriously.
It wasn't until the end of the video when the dog is walking toward the man filming, that I realize this dog is a Papillon, just like my "nephew" Mylo! I recognized the ears. Now I can't help but wonder if I can teach Mylo how to dance like that! Maybe I'd use Beach Boys music. ^_^
5. Comic strip creator Robb Armstrong must be a Beach Boys fan...
