things i learned (& in some cases, re-learned) this weekend

this weekend's education:
1. emma stone is precious, hilarious, thin as hell, and FANTASTIC in 'easy a.' go see it immediately.
2. it's totally fine to dance around in the movie theater while the credits roll.
3. it's also totally fine to laugh out loud and uncontrollably in the theater (in fact, i think it's encouraged by most -- well, the cool people, that is).
4. going to the gym just feels good. watching ben stiller on the big screen while at the gym feels GREAT.
5. who needs sleep? everything interesting happens between the hours of 'i'm exhausted,' and 'my eyes feel tired.'
6. jimmy eat world has done it again.
7. dirty hair makes the best funny bangs.
8. the popsicle i got from geauxsicles tasted like coffee on a stick. and for those of you who know me, you know that this was a wonderful, lovely thing. read more here.
8. there are little to no billboards between shreveport & alexandria, louisiana. the billboards that exist are in natchitoches. this makes for a pretty terrible drive at night.
9. the volcano roll at hana in alexandria is hot. h.o.t. H.O.T. we're talking guzzling water, sweating, eyes watering, nose running, freaking out hot. never again. the teriyaki sauce there is YUMMY though.
10. knitting is not just for old ladies.
11. facebook is a lot cooler than i thought (and i thought it was pretty cool to begin with). reading this as soon as is possible. this and this are fun to read about, too. oh, and watch this to prepare yourselves:

also, for your viewing pleasure:
