Wednesday Smiles

If you have it in you to do so, please tell me what's made you happy or grateful lately. The world can always use a little more sunshine.(If it can't I definitely can!) I see some ppl lurking here; don't be shy. Feel free to share something, even if you never pipe up again. :)

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 2007. 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. :)

The Mindy Project

Please tell me someone else here watches The Mindy Project. I only discovered it recently, thanks to a friend. Nasty cold sweeping through my house, personal problems, etc., and I desperately needed a distraction. The show's got heart, and it makes me laugh. And you guys, there's a 'ship that makes my heart glow almost as much as Booth and Brennan used to. I am so predictable:  give me a dash of chemistry, a smidgen of bickering, a rock-solid male/female friendship that endures while boyfriends and girlfriends and one-night-stands come and go, competent but quirky people who have been hurt and at least think they're hiding that hurt under a crusty exterior, a little pining, and characters who do ridiculous things for each other purely because they know it will make the other person happy, and I WILL BE PUTTY IN YOUR HANDS.
