This story is probably of very little interest, but I'm linking it because I have a cat (which I named Cat Mandu) who would also be a serious contender for this record. Not only does his whole body vibrate when he goes into full purr mode, but he purrs all the time. He just might be the happiest creature on the planet.
Why am I linking this? Three reasons: I saw it at Ace of Spades, and was surprised they interrupted their normal programming of sophomoric humor spiced with occasionally brilliant political commentary to introduce this new feature. Second, my wife and I are the proud owners of a Shiba Inu, and it is a non-stop source of mystery and amusement. Three, it's just plain cool. Check it out now, the pups are nursing...
Getting hit by an SUV (twas true - no worries I am relatively fine - but that sucked)

Ok, so maybe I'm pathetically busy and wouldn't go to a concert if not for Allison so is it any surprise we concur: Lykke Li at 6th and I Synagogue. LOVE that venue and Lykke Li ROCKED.
Zombieland - I don't know about you, but I like me some good ole' fashion entertainment and escapism when I go to the movies. And Zombieland delivered. It was the most enjoyable movie I've seen in a while. It delivered in terms of laughs and jumps and wholehearted entertainment. Allison's review is here.
