Re: I smiled because...

my little baby boy (8 months) always has to give me his pacifier before i take him out of bed after his snooze,when i went to pick him up earlier he handed it to me deliberatly,and with a beaming smile :-)

That will probably keep me smiling for a fortnight

when they are not crying or keeping u up at night they can be sooooo cute.

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because my holidays are round the corner and many colleagues look at me with remorses, because they still stay behind. Bye, bye stuffed office for 7 days

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled yesterday because - out of the blue - the penny dropped and I finally understood why Dog units are called K9's ..... ouch!

Today I smiled when I re-read this thread - always good for a smile in the morning

Re: I smiled because...

I can't stop smiling at the moment, my life is pretty cool indeed. And I'll do my best to remember that when, as it is normal, things take a dip in a while. Everything goes in circles...

I'm smiling because girly goes back to school on Tuesday. Nine weeks is far too long for a school holiday.

Sorry for going off topic, but 9 weeks, mine only had 5 weeks.

Ok back on topic i smiled because my daughter came home from school, and i was sorting some photos out, of my daughter, and son (Jordan), she was looking at a photo of herself, and asked me where Jordan was so i showed her a photo of Jordan, when she asked me again where is Jordan, where again i showed her the photo of Jordan, and said look here there he his, then she said no mummy where is the REAL Jordan, where upon i burst out laughing, said sorry sweetie, he his playing in the garden.

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because my visitors have just left for the airport. I never thought I'd see my brother so healthy and capable, it was a pleasure having them and a pleasure to see them go.

Remember how you bought me a drink on the night I found out I passed?

I smiled because I got to whizz around in one of my all-time dream cars, an Aston Martin DB9, on Saturday. And because the company I had was so lovely I wouldn't have cared if it had been a Fiat Cinquecento instead...

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because we (the GAOS choral group) were rehearsing Carmina Burana yesterday in Founex and some neighbor complained that we were making "noise" on a sunday. And then proceeded to play mexican music in retaliation "à fond".

Guess he won't be coming to the concert! LOL!

Re: I smiled because...

I'm smiling today ( a bit lopsided mind but...) because Sutter has invited me to dinner and has encouraged me to be brave and get a tattoo done!

Also, I've got to smile because this morning when I woke up, Lilly stuck her head out from under the duvet and proceeded to give me morning kisses! And she's just so cute!!

for those of you who don't know Lilly is a dog not my lesbian lover...

Re: I smiled because...

I am smiling because I am not sick anymore (was out due to some stomach flu) and because my friend called a USB port a UBS port, so I told her I didn't have any of those as my PC only came with Credit Suisse ports...

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because I watched an episode of Family Guy season 6 yesterday where Brian sold Stewies teddy Rupert in a yard sale.

Stewie was distraught and worried about what might happen to Rupert. Cue a fantastic parody of Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan when Spock is ejected out of the enterprise to the Genesis Planet.

Stewie is dressed as Kirk giving the Eulogy... "Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels.. his was the most... (quivering lip, voice breaking)... Human!"

Well, you had to be there.
