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 snuggle your dog gave you 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.

1. This.

2. I started running again -- and I didn't die.

On Wednesday morning last, I recorded a full commentary for Underworld with my two best friends. I just listened through the whole thing this morning, and we are awesome.

As I was reading a Bones fanfic, a Bones commercial was on TV.

Also, I was lost in some town were I've never been before, a friend of mine was lost too, but somehow we ended up in the same bus... Without the use of a cellphone! :)

What a neat little coincidence. ;)

*g* Those pics are amazing, aren't they?

Oh, those eggs sound GOOD. I might have to pick up some.

- My niece was asking for me every day when I was on vacation.

- My friends, the ones I was with last Easter. The tv shows we watched, the songs we danced, the games we played, the alcohol we drunk, the discussions about who's hotter --
Brennan or Maddie Hayes (BREN FTW, LOL), everything about those days makes me smile even today.

- My new T-Shirt of Agatha Ruiz de la Prada arrived today, just got to pick it at the post office, can't wait!

I have --want to comment on your other entry, the one about your writing, but I have no time right now. Damn job!! ;)


You have a lot to smile about. I'm glad! *hugs you back*

Don't worry about my other post; it's nothing urgent.

*g* Nope, not at all. It was my #1, too. :D

I used to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer when I was really little, but haven't seen in since I was like 8. But thanks to DB, I rented it the other night and I am TOTALLY IN LOVE! So that has made my week.

Buffy is AWESOME. I still miss it. That show & Buffy/Angel will always own a piece of my fannish heart.

1. The Amazing A was home on the weekend (to go to the auto show).

2. Doodle made me laugh hystericaly yesterday.

3. I am going out for Vietnamese food at lunch.

How sweet that your kids are responsible for two of your smiles. :) And your lunch sounds delish.

I bought a gorgeous and most awesome baby bath for my best-friend today. She's expecting her first child (a boy) at the end of July. I sent her a picture message on my phone to show her what it looked like and she replied saying, "Omg! That's awesome. Do they come in adult sizes?"... just like I knew she would. :)

Awww... How sweet. :) So you'll be an aunt.

Yes, quite literally. My best-friend and her partner are only children, so I'm the only Auntie this kid will have. And that's cool, I've been getting practice with my Niece, she's about 16 months old now.

I read 3x09 sides that I don't know why I missed back then when they where out and I laughed so hard with a particular scene between Brennan and Andy, the baby. I'm laughing right now just by recalling the scene in my head. Just amazing.

Thanks for the reminder; I downloaded the sides but haven't actually read them yet. :D

1. My birthday! \o/ (it was Sunday, but whatever)
2. Awesome new coat as birthday gift.
3. Spending quality time with my brother, our cousin and her boyfriend that did not involve some major family commitment.
4. UCLA and Tennessee (barely) managing to NOT completely torch my NCAA brackets. I'm still in the running!

Happy belated Birthday! I'm sorry I missed it. Hope you had a fabulous day. :)

A coat, QT with the fam, and March Madness are all pretty good reasons to smile. ;)

My boyfriend got me a Remy-the-rat from Ratatouille toy for Easter, which is filled with sweets. It is very, very cute and makes me smile whenever I look at it (I would recommend Ratatouille if you haven't seen the film - it's really funny).

I finished the first assignment for my Latin course. Hurrah!

I smiled when I have seen your new header. Oh-my-god, it's gorgeous!!!
This man will kill me *sigh*


1. like everyone else, I got reaffirm my love for DB and spout off to my roommate about his sexy!factor (with magazine scan visuals, of course)

2. I have tickets to watch UGA's gymnastics team totally kick ass (hopefully) at the SEC Championships this Saturday!

I ran six miles yesterday. Six miles! Yeah, I know it's only six miles, but I've never run that far ^.^

1. New pics of my nieces taken during their Spring Break.
2. The View from Castle Rock by Alice Munro.
3. at work we were able to tease Gullible Gal - who took everything in stride and it appears there won't be any scarring. ;-)
4. My brother made biscuits for dinner on Sunday. They tasted just like Mom's.
5. a mini shopping spree at Steve & Barry's

1. The continuing wonderfulness of Wednesday smiles :)
2. Getting a new cat on saturday - meow! He's a beautiful black rescue cat we are calling Vince :)
3. Listened to that Dykeenies song on YT. Loved it :)
