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

my babies make me smile.  tiger is so laid back.  he even loves doing "YOGA KITTIE!".

hard to explain, but i basically pick him up, upside down, and fold him in half in a yoga pose.
then i shout, "YOGA KITTIE!" and he purrs SUPER DUPER LOUD!
ivan and zoey hate it but tiger absolutely.loves.it!  he's so funny.

if i had little kids here that wanted to hold a kittie, it would definitely be him. 
it's impossible to piss him off.

:)>>>

(ps, because ivan and zoey hate it, they don't get to do YOGA KITTIE, of course.)

awww, your reason to smile made me smile! :)>>>

having that feeling that you are truly part of this earth and all of its wonder.  I'm not sure that it is the right way to describe it but if you have felt it you know what I mean...I hope. :o I love feeling that. :)>>>

Reminds me of my beloved Saul. I would stroke his head, drawing his ears back, which made him go all slanty-eyed, and yell, "Chinese cat! Chinese cat!" This became a running joke because Saul was an albino Siamese. Even my vet (a feline specialist, the why of that makes an interesting tale) referred to him as "el gato chino."

Nothing says "let's be friends" like a drunk late-night phone call!

My wireless internet connection is working!  Once I figure out how to pee in bed without getting my sheets wet, I'll never have to get out of bed again!

hh makes me smile!  :)>>>

that reminds me of the episode of simpsons where homer went into the nursing home and he thought it was great since he didn't have to get out of bed.  he saw someone on a respirator and he was like, "hey!  how come he's over there with a breathing machine and i have to do it all by myself?!!!"

:-D

The word you're looking for is "bedpan." ;)
That and a mini-fridge near the bed, with icecold drinkies and a few nibbles.

Finally finding clay planters for my cacti/succulents that are short and not tall!  Have been searching for ages.

Today, I will plant 3 to 5 cacti/succulents in each pot and make lovely little garden displays (for indoors).

That way, it won't look like I have over 25 plants.  Will look like I have 5.

Of course, that doesn't help me with the larger ones.

Found a website with obscure online texts to do with my private hobby (obsession)--see the "What are you reading" thread. They offer a CDRom with boocoos of books on it, BUT the website is Swiss and you have to pay in Swiss Francs. Bummer, cuz you know darn well they accept Euros in Switzerland. I guess Carmelites don't do online credit transactions.

my reason to smile today:  sending my dad the PERFECT father's day card.  (yes, he'll get it late)

it's garfield and it says on the front, "dad, a million dollars wouldn't be enough to repay you for all that you've done for me, so i hope you'll like what is inside this card"

and you open it up and it's garfield holding a check that pops out that says, "bank of gratitude", "father's day" (for the date), "pay to the order of ONE TERRIFIC DAD", "in the amount of ONE MILLION THANKS", "1,000,000", (something in the memo line, but i don't remember), and a blank line where you can sign that says "signature" under it.  it's set up just like a regular check.

under that it says, "it comes with a million hugs, too!  thank you!  happy father's day!"

it was absolutely perfect because just three days ago he gave me $900 to fix my car.  (my car was completely unusable and wouldn't start at all... that's bad for a delivery job!)  my dad does not part with his fortune, ever.  i was totally floored.  and he did it right before father's day and although i looked at a lot of cards this was the first one i looked at and it was absolutely perfect!

i love you daddy!  happy father's day!

You are a woman about town these days!  Look at you!  Three nights away....

Let's see.  I bought 16 pairs of new underwear this week.  On different occasions, for no other reason than I saw them and liked them.  I probably have a problem, but it makes me smile.

Heheh. :D The main reason I'm home tonight is because this week is K's exam, and he's taking time off to study. My parents were bugging me about taking up his time this weekend past! :lol: I told him, if he had things to do - needed to begin studying - he could just ask me to leave. But he didn't seem to want me to go. Go figure. ::) ;D We made us some nice vegan foodz.

eta: Oh, and new underwear kicks ass. (Or, uh, covers ass? ??? ;D)

before i had to start paying rent i easily kept victoria's secret in business.  i imagine they miss me now.  i have this obsession with cute undies.  at one point i had SO MANY that i had an entire dresser devoted just to underwear.  i could seriously not do laundry for a year and still have clean underwear everyday. 

i got rid of most of my stuff when i moved to washington.

now i'm down to only about thirty pairs.  haha.

every year i'd get money for christmas (oh, i miss those days!) and since i had no major financial responsibilities, i'd just spend it all at victoria's secret (in the store and online).  i remember spending about $400 one year just on underwear. 

not anymore, though.  i don't believe i've purchased cute underwear in the last two years.  :(
or even not cute underwear.
