happy things for hump day, 2012.05.30

It’s Wednesday. I know that it’s a short work week for many in the United States, given the Memorial Day holiday, but I still need some happy things to get me over that hump in the middle of the week. I thought you might, too; so, some of the things that have made me smile recently:

  1. Listening to Janelle Monáe.  Check out one of my favorites:

  2. Considering undertaking an epic instant ramen tasting adventure, inspired by The Ramen Rater blog.  Who knew that instant ramen could be so varied, tasty and versatile?!  I might start by seeking out some of the noodles on The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten List.
  3. Watching videos by YouTube user RRCherryPie.  This guy(?) makes videos of him constructing crazy, intricate Japanese candy kits.  (To be honest, he has other types of videos that show miniatures and food-related, clay-based crafting projects, but the candy ones are my favorite.)  The detail in this particular one blows my mind:

That’s it for now! Happy Hump Day!! Hope you too find something that makes you smile.
