I knew the day would come when this sign, from Austin Kleon’s blog – always a source of inspiration – would come in handy. It pretty much says it all about the mood on this side of the sofa. To fight off emotional tiredness, I have been revelling in things that make me feel good.
One. Once a diva….Can you think of many contemporary divas that aptly fit the definition? Lady Gaga? Nah…Madonna? Not quite. Not even Beyoncé and her too many selfies come close. But watch this video of Aretha Franklin at the Kennedy Center Honors and you will be reminded of what a diva looks and sounds like: the floor length mink coat nobody wears anymore, the little sparkly clutch, what she does with that coat….it made me smile. And then there is that voice….
I am guilty of quite a few.
Three. Two monks walk into a bar…sort of. This is a hilarious pictorial joke from the folks at The Toast. For everyone who has admired medieval miniatures and wondered…
Four. Funny animals on the internet are always a good way to cheer oneself up. These photos, by professional photographers, competed in the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. The first prize went to the rush our rodent but they will all make you smile.
Five. In the interest of keeping my skin from being completely fried by radiation therapy, I have been trying all kinds of lotions, specific to the treatment or otherwise. Udder Smoothly has so far come up the winner. Because it’s fragrance free, it makes the skin “udderly” smooth, it has a reasonable price point and a fun packaging, this one is going to stick around long after radiation is over. Highly recommended.
