Wednesday Smiles and fic pimps
Perfect Imperfections - unexpectedbox

My smiles:

Had dinner with friends on Saturday night, and there was much laughter. So my smiles this week are friends and laughter; they're among the best life has to offer.

ETA:  There's doc_3  & tempertemper  fic to be had this week, and while I haven't read either yet, I'm confident I'll be thrilled by both.  I would never have known either of them except for fic, and that would mean I was two friends poorer.

Friends and strangers alike, "May you live all the days of your life." (Jonathan Swift)

I mostly post fannish things in this journal, but I think it's easy to forget that there is a real person behind the fic and the Bones commentary Same goes for other people, of course.   So I'd like to take a minute to acknowledge our humanity.

If you'd like to do so, please tell me something that made you smile this week, no matter how small.  Could be the snuggle your dog gave you on Monday, the song you discovered on Tuesday, or the way your significant other smiled at you today.  I've been posting these since December.  If you feel up to it, please respond—here, in your own journal, or elsewhere.   Feel free to post more than one thing and/or respond to other comments.

Why am I doing this?  Because I think it is far too easy to get caught up in the stresses, big and small, that we all experience.   Being able to focus on one positive thing, however small, can give one a valuable sense of perspective.

Why Wednesday?  I figure a little mid-week cheer can't hurt.  :)

Please feel free to comment even if we're not "friends." 

P.S. 
I don't always get a chance to respond to all your smiles, but I read every single one.  They all leave me feeling a little bit lighter than I did before.  So thank you!  I hope you're all having a good week, my friends, and if you're not, I hope it improves.

Your new header just made me smile :)

And Joe is poorly today - he woke at 3am and has been sick every half an hour until a couple of hours ago when he drank some flat lemonade and went to sleep feeling much better - that makes me smile :)

Thanks, honey. They're pretty even when they're in pain. *g*

Re: Joe
Oh, your poor dear. :( How horrid for all of you. I'm glad he finally fell asleep, though. Stomach bugs are awful. *hugs for you both*

Thank you, sweetie *hugs you too*

I;m just hoping the rest of us don't come down with it! And now I feel bad as I should be in work. Life!!

Ugh, family sickness is so painful. Here's hoping the rest of you steer clear of whatever's hit poor Joe.

And now I feel bad as I should be in work.

And if you were at work, you'd feel bad you weren't home with Joe -- even if someone else was keeping an eye on him. So it goes; damned if you do, damned if you don't. Basically, we're all just damned. *g*

And if you were at work, you'd feel bad you weren't home with Joe -- even if someone else was keeping an eye on him.

Oh so true... you are so smart to know that going in! lol

This is so true. That baby of yours is lucky to have you as a mom you know :)

Awwwwwwws.... I know! I often think about what a difference clicking on that freaking blessed site ff.net has had on my life.. all you wonderful friends!

And thank you, for the pre-read review *g* I hope you do like! :)

Oh no...I hate it when the kids are sick. You do everything that you can for them, but you still feel awful when they feel awful. Hope he's feeling better soon!

And hurrah for the TT and Doc fics. So good...

Aw, thank you hon - both for sympathy and fic love *g*

Joe is a lot better now.. he really tried to fight being sick which was horrible as he kept crying and yelling at me, "No! I'm NOT going to be sick!!" and then.. bleurgh! Poor boy, it was his first real bug :(

Awww, poor thing. I hope he's all better now! :)

1. I had a wonderful weekend in Dublin. Great city, friendly people and nice weather.
2. "The Con Man in the Meth Lab". Lovely episode ♥

Besos

Oooh, Dublin. Haven't been to Ireland, but I bet it's lovely. How wonderful that you spent some time there! :)


My smiles:
- Margot & the Nuclear So and So's-Quiet As a Mouse

My tune of the year - fantastic album!

- ETA: There's doc_3 & tempertemper77 fic to be had this week, and while I haven't read either yet, I'm confident I'll be thrilled by both..... Life has got in the way of me seeing Bones, let alone me reading fic - I am so excited to see my fave authors publishing and can't wait to enrich my life with reading your fics too!

- anyone who has been paying even passing vague attention might remember I've had a "nearly" thing with a man for a while. We recently sat and chatted the whole thing through and we now have a thing :) I am trying to be sane about it - there are still things to figure out, but I have a smile on my face a lot of the time at the moment, even if work is fecking horrible.

So happy for you, hon! :)

Ooh, exciting! I hope that goes well! Sorry about work, but who care about work when you've got a great personal life! :)

♥Just got some new tunes...

♥Just ordered my Christmas presents from my hubby (he's so spoiled that I buy them for myself)... Bones S3 DVDs FTW!

♥But most of all, and the thing that kept my sanity yday - I actually carved out time to sit and write. It felt really, really good.

Reasons to smile...
-Today is Wednesday, so we have a new episode of Bones.
-My season 3 of Bones arrived in the mail yesterday.
-Yesterday, I purchased my tickets for Twilight for Friday.
-Only one present left to buy to finish off my Christmas shopping.

looked over the new Bones DVDs for Season 3. While I am very disappointed that there isn't a commentary on any of the episodes, I am delighted that the extended episodes expand on the B/B.

It's bitterly cold here for November - and the sun is shining and it's beautiful: good day, that.

::hugs:: for you - how are you doing these days?

Where to begin?

I am almost a television personality having been filmed several times this week.

I had a lovely day away from work with lovely people yesterday in a smart hotel with proper haute cuisine.

My Bones Season 3 boxed set arrived today and there are 5 discs to wade through.

I am ignoring everything and have 4 football matches I can watch tonight.

I have decided to get a new phone for Christmas and will enjoy choosing which one to get.

Dido has a new album out. I haven't bought any music for ages so I will smile while listening to that.

I am up to November 19th and have managed to post every day so far this month.

Snow is forecast for this weekend!

I'm still snowed under at work, but I managed to book Monday off, so I've got a long weekend to look forward to.

Plus I've done some xmas shopping, so I feel more organised than usual!

I got a free birthday gift when I bought lip gloss at Sephora today!

I'm currently watching "Two Bodies in the Lab" with DB & ED commentary and cracking up.

There was lots of new fiction in the past day that made me smile. Specifically, yours and tempertemper's.

Looking at a picture taken a while ago and realizing how much weight I already lost. :)))

Your edited comment is my Wed. smile, because like you said, without fic I'd be several friends poorer. If for no other reason, Bones is my favorite show for everyone it has brought into my life.

*hugs*

Bones! Booth tried to get Brennan to play Sexy Librarian. Ha ha!!! I love that show.

I started therapy today. I've been to scared to go and i think i might get better now.

Late smile, but oh well...

+Bones this week (while not amazing) was fun :)

+It's finally the weekend!

+Thanksgiving next week means good food, family & friends, and a break from school! All things to look forward to! ♥
