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.)
