Wednesday Smiles
My smile:  I just misread "vintage cookie recipe" as "villainous cookie recipe."

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." 

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.

May I repeat my last week smile and say again 'health'?


This afternoon an ex coworker (and friend) and I exchanged some SMS's. She told me she was fired from her 8 years job for working part-time due to her children. The happy thing is that a current coworker and I could convince our boss to have her back. I'm pretty sure we'd succeed.

Friends are the best thing in the world. :)

-Finally hearing that Jack's MAnnequin new cd will be out in September

-Hanging out with old friends. We're all in the same place for a change.

-My sister because she makes me laugh a lot.

I finished Serenity last night and began reading Firefly fanfic this morning. I was extremely pleased to discover a vast amount of very good fic, though it does always give me a shock to see that it was posted "November 1, 2004" and so on.

And my parents and brother are on vacation all week, so I simply had to finish my birthday cake on my own. It was so...tragic. And difficult.

- It has been pouring with rain since last Thursday, and it's freezing cold because there's snow on the mountains, so I'm really very thankful that I'm warm.

- A weekend away trip with 3 of my closest friends - we're hoping for snow and a fireplace, and hot chocolate :)

- 3 weeks and 2 days til the new X-Files movie opens here!!

1. I hurt my back last week - and today is the first day I've been able to go to the gym and have a session with my trainer. Lifting weights felt really good.....until the burn.
2. Weighed in today - only gained 1/2 pound due to back injury.
3. Your news from a couple weeks ago. Congratulations!

The fact that today is July 9th and is our Independence Day makes me smile because I don't have to do anything today. It's holiday :D

A week of sunny days. The kind where, as I walk home from work, I turn my face to the sky and am suffused with joy. Pure, complete, delicious happiness.

my smile for yesterday and today and tomorrow


oh, and i would MUCH rather have a villainous cookie than a vintage cookie. :)

Re: my smile for yesterday and today and tomorrow

oh my gosh, that video is amazing!! That's SO cool! :D ♥

My smiles?
-Your smile this week - so funny! I always do stuff like that, misreading things ;)
-My soccer team has just started practice yesterday! Yay! :)
-The Daily Show is on right now (John Stewart!!!)

- UPS was willing to redeliver my package on the same day after I missed it because I was still asleep. It should arrive soon.

- My major travel screw-up is being steadily resolved and I might still make my trip tomorrow.

- Music and LiveJournal. They distracted me and made me relax when I was stressing out.

- Pilots! in BSG season 1 before the angst completely swamped their relationship.

Rainy sunshine - my favorite weather :)

Background: I work for a NFP that helps children with disabilities, we run a camp during the summer.

Today they brought the camp kids up to our offices, and they sang us a couple songs in some really brightly colored choir robes. They were having a fantastic time, and so were we. Made my week.

LOL on the misread.

My Bones s2 finally arrived in the mail :)

I'm thankful for a gorgeous day, a dental check-up that didn't require dental work, a dental hygienist and a dentist who are "to die for", a goodly amount of work done,

and a husband who cooked dinner. TRA-LA!!

its mine and my g/f's first month anniversary today :)

a day off!! sitting indoors has become a bit of a novel concept, what with how much time i spend standing outdoors in the boiling sun. so just having time to park my ass on the couch and surf the web in the air conditioning is producing massive amounts of smiling!

also the little boy i baby-sat for @ mouse house the other day. teeny little asian boy with a mohawk named ollie. coolest kid EVER! we tried to play chutes and ladders, but all he wanted to do was ask questions about the cartoon characters on the board, then spent an hour playing chef with our big box of fake food. he's so intense and intelligent, i wanted so badly to just scoop him up and take him home with me!!
