So Adam Heine's got a Positive Waves Week going on over at Author's Echo, and I figured I'd join in with passing along what makes me happy.
For starters, my wife and I are entertained by this hotel in North Conway, NH. How can you not want to stay at a place where one of the rooms is set up like a treehouse? That's some awesomeness right there.
Then we continue into some of the smartest sci-fi shows floating around the airwaves: namely Torchwood and the new series of Doctor Who. Hi, my name's Matthew and I'm a science fiction nerd (and now we take this moment to pause for the shock that's not coming). Moving on with the moving pictures, we have films that star Bruce Campbell in the leading role. Yes I know they're horrible, but they're that good kind of horrible. Especially when the lead actor knows he's in a B movie and hams it up accordingly ("Did somebody order a LARGE HAM?")
Terry Pratchett's books tend to make me happy. Reading fantasy novels that are brilliant in their skewering of every sacred cow in fantasy fiction is a good pastime to let hours slip away.
And, as I'm sure she'll say, I saved the best for last. My wife is perhaps the wittiest person I know and has stated that it's her job to make me laugh. Something she takes quite seriously. Oh, and she lets me be a geek. Always important, that.
