It’s Friday, and while that usually means you get a post called I Don’t Care Enough About You to Write in Transitioning Paragraphs Friday, today is going to be different. Yes, different just like last Friday, but-cept with a theme:
A lot of people I care about have been facing some big, sad challenges. I am one of those people I care about. I’m tired of feeling sad and worried and afraid and unhappy. I’m not feeling better about any of the things that have made me sad, worried, afraid, and unhappy, but I need something that can make me smile. We all need those things, facing challenges or not.
First, a video that my BFF and favorite author Pamela Ribon posted to Twitter this week. It’s kinda long, but so adorable. It makes me wish I lived in France or my kids spoke French or I knew this little girl, because I would hug her and hug her and hug her every time she said “crocodile” and “giraffe.”
I suddenly have the urge to watch Amelie again. Now, there’s a feel-good movie for ya.
I want to wear this to an event someday:
My Facebook friend Dana (who’s also my cousin’s cousin, and went to the same high school as me but a little earlier, which makes us all awesome-like, even though we’ve never met face-to-face) “liked” this on FB yesterday:
I have PMS and a GPS... which means... I am a bitch and I will find you.
Confidential to my sister: if you have ruined tortilla soup for me, I promise, I am going to like you much less.
Simon’s cat has a new movie!
You can see all of the Simon’s Cat movies here.
I don’t care if it’s a staged photo-op to make Obama look all light-hearted and fun—which I’m sure many people will insist—it still makes me laugh.
My creed is that: Happiness is the only good. The place to be happy is here. The time to be happy is now. The way to be happy is to make others so. ~Robert Green Ingersoll
Puppies can usually be counted upon to bring about smiles. This little dude is insaaaaane.
Best wishes for a happy weekend.
