If there is a wrong side of the bed, I certainly woke up on it. I’m not entirely sure how this happened, since I always wake up on the same side of the bed, which, incidentally, is on the right. And despite that, it is, more often that I would like, the wrong side. Sigh.
So, to counteract my craptacular mood today, I’ve listed a few things fantastic things that I found this week. They might not pertain to travel all that much, but they made me smile. If they have the added bonus of making your Friday a little brighter, I’ll consider this already-lousy day saved.
A friend of mine was reading her 3-year-old son a book about pirates. When they came to the following page, he asked, “Mom, where’s Chunk?”
And speaking of Chunk, the town of Astoria, OR (of which I am a huge fan) is hosting a HUGE Goonies shindig to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the movie. As it’s only 20 days away, I won’t be attending, sadly, since most tickets are already sold-out. But I already had a magical Goonies-themed trip to Astoria last summer. And I don’t know if anything, even dinner with Mouth and Chunk, could top that.
If I had the ability (and the legs) to do this, I would. Every single time I was in NYC, I would.
My friend Vanessa recently published a book entitled “Marketing in the Age of Google.” Which, come on, is just plain cool.
This happened to me recently when I thought my usually chatty neighbor was talking to me.
Alvin and the Chipmunks singing “Livin’ on a Prayer.” It’s awful. AWFUL.
All the kids are getting stuffed narwhals for Christmas from Auntie Geraldine.
And finally, I had this brilliant exchange with my husband when he noticed my horrific mood this morning …
Rand: When you are happy, the world is a happy place.
Me: And when I am sad?
Rand: Men die.
Fortunately, there will be few casualties today, dear friends. Things are already turning around. 🙂 HAPPY FRIDAY!
