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

thinking of VW when i was on the toilet also made me smile.

Over the weekend I ate a minimum of six pounds of blueberries - and stopped pooping.  It might have been fiber overload.  Last night I finally had a poop and thought of vegweb.

Oh, and I'm smiling about the fact that Urban Dictionary has the following definitions for...
Whargarbl:
(n.) A useless or unproductive excersize.
(v.) To waste time and effort.
(n.) The noise made by a dog's mouth as it bites the stream of water coming from a lawn sprinkler.

:D

and I'm totally not kidding, hehe...

ohhhh... nevermindthen. :D
.....unless You want to be considered scandalous for mentioning such things in THIS thread...heheh

OH! I almost forgot:

I made chocolate PB pie and bp's carrot cake this morning and brought it to work.... Everyone in the bakery who tried them LOVED it! ...I mean, they seemed genuinely impressed with the deliciousness of them both, not to mention the fact that they're entirely Vegan.

It turns out that the lady who owns the place is a vegetarian, and she is really good about recognizing special dietary needs and meeting the needs of the customers. The pastry manager I worked with today indicated that I could very well help with new recipes and/or veganizing existing ones for future custom orders. :D
sweeeet!

I have a huge reason to smile this afternoon, just received a text message from my husband, and instead of being laid off tomorrow, as he was warned he would be, he's got a permanent job and offer of an apprenticeship :-D  That's just such unbelievably good news right now, I've been so stressed about him losing his job, and this came through just in the nick of time!!!

Seeing this picture pop up here made me... well, more ROFL than smile, but smiling was a part of that. :-D

I'm writing assessments, and I found a custom bubble-sheet generator!  :)

Huh?  What's a bubble-sheet generator?  Is it like a scantron?

Well, no, you can't scan it and have it graded for you, but similar.  Like, if I have a test with 62 questions and I want it to be specifically A-E bubbles or whatever the case may be (or <, >, =,  or numbers instead of letters, etc), then I can custom make the answer sheet.

Sweet!  So I was close.  I first thought bubble wrap and then I thought bedsheets and THEN I thought I should think of something that actually makes, you know, sense.

Reason to Smile:  My desktop crashed last night, but before I went to bed I printed out my Iron Chef recipe.

I need to get it fixed, but first I'm going to think good thoughts and see if that works.
