Reasons to smile

I guess not everyone needs to find a reason, but... What made you smile and/or laugh today?

My first LOL of the day was caused by this LOLdog.

I went to the uniform laundry room at work yesterday, to ask if I could try on a size smaller in my trousers. And they fit! The laundry lady asked me if I needed a new shirt, too, so I tried the next size down in that, too. And it fit! Wow. My pants had been slipping down my hips a little for weeks, but last week they got ridiculously slippy. So happy to have confirmation that my body's changing shape/size a little. :iloveyou:

Humming along to the occasional good song at work... it's amazing how much it can lift my mood. ;)b

Overhearing customers' reactions when they can't decide whether flowers are real or not. It's hilarious either way - when they think fake are real, or real are fake. ;D

Sirdidymus - PLEASE tell me you have more pictures of Loki that you'll post.  That'd make me smile.

Hey - ask and ye shall receive - warning though - there's ~a lot~ of pics....enjoy :)

thepictires of sirdidymus' cats made me smile....they're all so so beautiful!

I love the pitures where it looks like Loki is singing or smiling and Ariel's 'pornstar' posing and how Kali sits with her tongue poking out.

All just so so lovely and cute!

PS by the looks of all the cat toys, I think I know someone who spoils their cats! :)

this reminds me of something.  i love using sesame seeds.  the problem is they're so expensive.  when you buy them in the spice section - they're generally about $3 to $4 easy, for a small bottle.  when i was in my local asian market the other day - i came across a big bag of sesame seeds for $7 - score!!  I didn't buy it as i don't need any right now, but now i know where to buy them on the cheap in the future!

things to smile:

- i woke up today w/o too much effort (i'm so ~not~ a morning person)
- someone at the job acknowledged some work i did for her and in the process, copied my boss on the email.  i'm just doing my job but all the same - that was a cool/nice thing to do
- while listening to "Slacker" radio on my Blackberry, i heard the song "My Blue Heaven" - cute, zippy little tune....
- the green beans and artichokes that i made over the weekend and brought for lunch - didn't spoil and were very tasty
- i remember that i have peppermint candy in my jacket pocket - score!
- i'm giving myself the day off from cardio - my achy breaky body thanks me :D

thank you  ;D they make *me* smile too  ;)b.  I was glad that HH asked for the pics - gave me the chance to revisit them.

Sadly - you're not the only one that looks at Ariel and sees "porn star" .... bad boy Loki, bad bad bad boy  >:D.

I am just *so blessed* to have these furry companions though!

Something trivial happened today which resulted in a crashing realisation that I actually do care about K. After the shakes had passed, I spent some minutes grinning like a loon.

I ate almost nothing but fruit today, except for some coffee, and I think I'll be able to give that up. I'm feeling positive and able about improving my health. Now if only it were as easy to give up the drinkies...

Hearing my favourite new song several times today.

Sounds like he comes from a first-generation Wall Street brokerage family. They carried "discounted paper" (stock transactions) in their hats, and the more business they did, the higher their hats rode on their heads.

That's very interesting Yabbit!  Here is my contribution for today:

Coworker:  "I've never heard of Primus.  What did you say that guy's name was again?"
Me: "Les Claypool."
Coworker: "Let's play pool?"

;D
