"Happy Milk" and... Quidditch??!?

For the first time today, I discovered that milk does not only exist in just the forms of plain, chocolate, strawberry, and caramel. (Caramel milk? Anyone tried it? Just use caramel syrup... it's fairly good...)

The BYU Creamery is known for its ice cream. And it is also known for its Cookies 'N' Cream Milk. Until today, I had never tried it. It's like the ice cream. Only... in liquid form, without the little cookie chunks, and (quite frankly) much more appetizing than melted cookies-n-cream ice cream would be. (Believe me. I've had the ice cream when it's melted. And the milk is waaaay better.)


I thought my day was going pretty well when I drank this before my last class of the day.

Then I actually went to my last class...
Where my teacher informed us that we wouldn't have class on the Friday before President's Day and were moving the section activity that we were going to have that day to the next week.
That made me extremely happy.
And THEN four of my classmates got up to make a presentation about "play" analyzed as a performance...

...and THIS is what they decided to present on.

The nerd within me basically exploded.
I've heard of Muggle Quidditch before... love it.
Did you know they actually have an international Quidditch League that 4 different countries are involved in??!?
This guy named Alex Benepe was the man who got the ball rolling when he set up an intercollegiate league in 2008 and even wrote a 36 page handbook titled the Intercollegiate Quidditch Rules and Guidebook.
It is SO. DETAILED. Rules, equipment, penalties, international standard guidelines for the hoop sizes... it's all covered in the guidebook.
Riddikulus. (See what I did there? Eh? Eh?)

Okay. Nerd moment over.
And my day is only going to get better... because it's the weekend. Yes.
Happy Friday everyone!
