Whatcha got? I'm ready. Hit me.  

Just deleted a long, whiny post, which would have done no one, the least of all ME, any good.  I can't gripe today.  I just can't do it.

So I'm going a different way, and I'm asking the f-list (and lurkers, too - come on!  De-lurk!) to play along.

I need good stuff.  It could be a story in which you tell me about something good  that happened to you, a picture you think is awesome, something you read that you liked and want to share...  any of that?  Leave a comment.  Or a link.
  It's a win/win.

I'm gonna dig my way out of my bad mood if it kills me. (Not really.  That was metaphorical hyperbole, if there is such a thing.)  It's one of the perks of being stubborn.  This is GOING to get better, and I'm going to force it to, come hell or high water.

I hear:: nothing

*hugs* Please to enjoy a cracked.com article entitled "The 6 Cutest Animals That Can Still Destroy You." Not only is it fun and educational, but it also completely validates your hatred of dolphins.


And for good measure, one of my favourite Jam fics from the earlier seasons: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2883156/1/

'mangled in unexpected ways.'

Uh huh.

These were HYSTERICAL. SO funny. Thanks for sharing.

And after I read that Office fic, I spent another hour and a half just reading other Office-y JAM-y stuff. Good times. Thank you. :)

Go to you tube and search for "laughing baby". You will get about a million hits and it will make your day. I especially love this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXXm696UbKY but they are all heartwarming. :)

Hrm.... I'm down with a headache, so I'm seriously NO fun today - but yesterday before it hit I found a WAY fun site that is complete craziness, but kinda adorable.


Other things that make ME happy (that I hope make you smile a bit)...

OOOh Tracey and Greg babies: http://fc01.deviantart.com/fs22/f/2007/347/6/1/Kiss_by_BeKa15.jpg

A Fabulous Pride and Prejudice AU story

A very fun music video

Spiritual Story

Song that makes me smile - especially when he bumps into the shower.

Fun Toys - I was So going to send my 'father' the hep C one... but Jay said that would be in bad taste. I personally want a black plague one.

THE BEST Chocolate-Chip Banana Bread Recipie - I have made it too many times to count

hrm... I have to go lay down for a bit, or I'd think of more things to make you smile. I KNOW you are much stronger than any bad mood. You are a good friend and an even better person and if I had you really here, I'd hug you till you couldn't breathe. I hope your day gets better.

Funny teen moments...
Tori called me into look at the computer screen a little while ago. She had Face Book open to a gift page. The Twilight cast were on the gift page, so she asked me who I wanted. She said it a little weirdly, so I asked her what she meant.

Tori: They’re gifts. Who do you want? But you can’t have Edward or Emmett, because I’m having them.

Me: You don’t get the man, just the picture.

Tori: No, they’re gifts! I want the man!

Hubby: *whimpers*

Me: *sniggers*

(I didn't tell her who I wanted, because I don't think hubby could have handled the argument that would have ensued *smirk*)

Oh, did you know that teenagers are allergic to their parents using the word ‘naked’ when referring to themselves running around the house like that. It causes the most awful scarlet rash starting from the neck and creeping up into the face *g*

Since I don't have cute kid stories like you, I posted a stupid animal story. ^_^ Read my post to the http://community.livejournal.com/dachshunds/ board dated today, and then laugh (if only because it didn't happen at your house).

Yeah. True story.

Kerry deserved some sort of medal for having dealt with that right out of sleep. AND ICK to the poo on the wall.

Aww! I hope your bad mood is getting better, Carrie!

Let's see this always makes me laugh. This one as well. Actually, all of them make me laugh. ;)

Ohh! Greg and Tracey happy scene today! *grins*

*hands over some double chocolate muffins* I hope I helped you, at least a little bit!

Well, I am not at home and cannot share any pics of any kind, but I can send you lots of lovin' and encouragement and remind you how awesome you are and how happy you make me with your Pansy and Rosey. I have some great pics to share when I get home. I hope you will be feeling better by then, of course, but you will still get a kick out of them. ;)

*huggles you tight*

Carrie Leigh: Si Muove Characterscarrie_leigh on October 18th, 2008 02:01 am (UTC)
I really am glad that you like Pansy and Rose. They're both sweet and vulnerable in their own ways; drastically different, and each a lot of fun to write.

Thanks, Urs.

WolfStar: memorieswolfstar07 on October 17th, 2008 06:13 pm (UTC)
I think I'll tell you about my favorite memories from Hawaii. Please DO NOT let the particular subject matter get to you. And keep in mind I was 7, and it was magical.

Anyway, I did Girl Scouts for 10 years. One year my brownie troop decided we'd go to Sea Life Park on the other side of the island (it's like Sea World). It was a lock-in really. I believe we got there after closing and had an evening scavenger hunt and other games. We slept in the dolphin stadium. It was rather difficult for the adults since we slept in the foot space between the seats. The following morning I'm fairly certain I was the first one up. This was sort of odd, but the reason I was up so early was because the sunrise had woken up the dolphins and they were playing in their tank. I thought that was the most amazing thing, to wake up to dolphins playing. And the sunrise was just gorgeous. Eventually everyone else got up and sort of took the magic away. I also ended up feeding a killer whale later that day. It sounds cool, but I don't like fish, and I had to put the vitamins into the fish gills and get fish blood on me that I never got a chance to wash up. Quite disgusting. But the whale was a huge hit with the island children, and so freaking huge, so it was neat to get chosen to feed her. It was a pretty awesome experience.
Carrie Leigh: Vengeful Dolphinscarrie_leigh on October 18th, 2008 02:04 am (UTC)
It's nice to hear a good dolphin story every now and then. I sometimes forget that they can't all be horrible creatures. ;)

I kicked ass on my first law school test. I'm going to see Wicked tonight. I share the soundtrack with you here:


I left love for you on [Unknown LJ tag]'s meme the other day in case you haven't seen it yet.

The 1st deleted scene for last night's Office is here:

It's been about 5 years since I've written anything D/G. Give me a prompt and I'll write you something. We can see what law school has done to my creativity.


Carrie Leigh: Jim and pamcarrie_leigh on October 18th, 2008 02:10 am (UTC)
Congrats on making a great grade! But then I knew you were brilliant...

I LOVE Wicked! I've seen it three times! Thanks so much for the musics!

And I hadn't seen the love. I need to go over there and spread some love of my own. :)

I always forget about those clips! that one was very funny.

And as for a prompt?
a blanket, a hairbrush, and a picture frame.


*loves you, too*
