Wednesday Smiles

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 squeeing over Bones.  Same goes for other people, of course.   So I'd like to take a minute to acknowledge our humanity.

Please tell me something that made you smile this week, no matter how small.  Could be the excellent latte you had on Monday, the song you discovered on Tuesday, or the way your significant other smiled at you today.  I'm going to try to post this every Wednesday for myself, and 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.  :)

If you feel weird about doing this in public, please comment anonymously.  I'm setting this entry to screen anon comments; I won't unscreen any anon comments unless you give me permission.  And please feel free to comment even if we're not "friends." 

I'll be back with my response.

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.

I have finally lost my mind.

Why else would I be listening to Britney Spears' Piece of Me?   *cries*

Somebody save me, please.

ETA:  Thank you for the intervention.  Who knows what would have happened if I listened to it BACKWARDS!?

Edited again because I iz a whore for music--even if it can only loosely be termed "music".  And no one ever accused me of having good taste. 

So I'll be honest:  I like Piece of Me.  And Toxic. 

*sigh*  There goes my street cred.  Ok, so I didn't have any to begin with. *g*

Ok, so if you've read Things That Never Happened... the first chapter of this will look familiar. I warned you in the notes for that that I was tempted to continue this story.  Well, I lost the battle.

Comments are always appreciated, and though it usually takes me a while, I try to respond to them all. :)

This is for everyone who's listened to me vent. You know who you are. Thank you.
