Re: I smiled because...

Because I went shopping for clothes and discovered I've actually shrunk despite taking cortisone AND found a gorgeous bright yellow fifties summer dress. Now for the courage to actually wear it...

Re: I smiled because...

I'm smiling because I just got promoted, I have a long weekend, and my vacation request for the summer holidays was approved. Yes, my smile is so big at the moment you can probably spot it on Google Earth. <smileysize=1000></smileysize>

Congratulations!!! That and seeing the number on the scale go down are definitely reasons to smile.

I'm sure you'll look lovely in your new summer dress, too

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled the other day because one of my best friends in Belgium went to see Sebadoh there the other day, a band we both adore. In the middle of the concert, he thought of me and called me up on my cell so that I too could enjoy a few minutes of the concert. So far away, yet so close, that made me smile!

Didn't he really annoy you by asking how-you-were, right in the middle of their main chorus ?


Enjoy your weekend,
