Things that make me sad:
The Party of Hell No! – Republicans who like to look tough when they’re grilling Goldman Sachs executives, but who vote no to discussing Wall Street Reform.
The new Papers Please law. Thank you, Arizona, for your cultural sensitivity and legal logic. From Jon Stewart: “”It’s not unprecedented, having to carry around your papers. It’s the same thing free black people had to do in 1863!”
Oklahoma’s new limiting-your-choice abortion laws.
Things that make me happy:
Zooey Deschenel’s She and Him.
My favorite books. Not too long ago I had to submit a Top 10 list to the bookstore for a “Our Employees Suggest” display. This was the original list – before I had to chop it down – who only gets to pick TEN favoriate books?

Things that make me giggle:
