What's making me happy this week V

Mostly what is making me happy is that I learned about the following three things by spending way too much time on the internet:

The Dionne Quintuplets - the first set of quintuplets to survive became quite the celebrities in the 1930's. Quite interesting.

Egg Creams: No egg, no cream. (Still, I don't like chocolate milk so it doesn't sound good even though I finally have my facts straight.)

Cafe society - What a life! (I actually came across this term while reading Breakfast at Tiffany's, but even though it might seem like I deserve credit for spending time away from the computer, I have to confess that after wandering away from my book to investigate what the cafe society was, I never returned.)

You should read The Paris Wife if you'd like to learn more about cafe society. It's about Hemmingway and his first wife in Paris in the early 20th century. Very well written.
