if you're happy and you know it clap your hands

So, dear internets, I'm in a funk. So much sad stuff has been happening simultaneously on several blogs that I read, and my heart has been cracking into a million pieces for people all over the country. In addition, I'm in a funk for other, more personal reasons (nothing major, no worries). So, in conclusion, I've been crying a lot (sorry, Shane).

Anywho, because of this, I want to know what's making YOU happy. What's putting a smile on your face? Please tell me all about it. Especially if you think it will put a smile on MY face. Because really, isn't it all about me?

Crying is unacceptable, and I will not allow it. If you must cry, take your crying elsewhere.

i deleted my joke b/c i had no intention of delivering the punch line, as it was a wildly inappropriate joke. And an unfinished joke will just make you sad.

I did however just (literally, moments ago) read an article in a man magazine about how to deal with a woman who is crying. Apparently it involves approaching her as if she were a small wounded animal and delivering a clean white handkerchief. There was also something about calling the cops.

If you ever need to cry, know that I am well prepared to deal with it. Just give me some warning.

Are you crying because Audrey is in the UK? Don't worry, she'll be back soon and then she'll be crying because she's not there anymore.

Let's see... what makes me happy? Well, laughing at other people, for one:

Then there's always, OK I guess this one's laughing at other people, too:

This cracked me up, too, which -SURPRISE- is a video making fun of people:

I guess I'm a terrible person. A terribly happy person...

I hope your funk dissipates soon.

I was wildly happy to ignore all posts that talked about dead babies and delete my Twitter account, which had just become a constant stream of dead baby notifications.

For the first time in my life, the blogworld has broken my heart. Sometimes our world just isn't supposed to be so big. I can barely deal with the tragedies in my own life, let alone with those of people who I've never even heard of. The compassion and outpouring and all that is just amazing, but I can't deal with it. I can't deal with seeing pictures of these kids all over the place. Seeing the stories again and again. Seeing the mothers.
I have real-life stuff that I'm dealing with. I can't handle internet-life stuff too.

So I was wildly happy to not deal with the internet sadness, and focus on how lucky I am to have my son in this exact minute and all the other minutes he has been in my life. Sometimes backwards thinking and rumination is a very good thing.

Aw! Don't cry because you miss me! I'll be home very soon, I promise.

But until then...some happy thoughts...

It's Thursday...which means tomorrow is Friday...which means the weekend is almost here!

I am, indeed, bringing home chocolate to share with my dear fourth floor friends because I think you guys are great and you make me smile. I feel very lucky to work with you. Never before have I actually missed going to work. I just hope the chocolate doesn't melt in my suitcase...

I got a brand new cupcake cookbook today at place that's name will make you's called the Humming Bird Bakery. I kid you not. Of course I thought of you and Alan. Sometime soon I will have to bake some cupcakes and bring them in for everyone.

And you shouldn't listen to Shane even a little. Crying is perfectly fine and it often makes me feel better when I'm upset...even if it's a few days in a row. ITt helps me get the bad feelings out of my system. Certain people just can't handle normal human emotions (ahem...SHANE...).
