Headlines! Homo Floresiensis!

Homo Floresiensis, the "hobbit" of Indonesia, is the coolest paleontological discovery ever, and that's including megafauna.

I read my new DWJ book, my husband's picking up the car after three weeks in the garage and will use it to pick up our backlog of comics at the comic store, the new dishwasher is installed, and I get a hobbit news story. Could this day get any better?
