Hump Day Happy

How does Wednesday keep showing up so quickly? I’m about to turn in(to a newt), but if you want something from among 14,000 things to be happy about:

please give me a page number from 1 to 612 and another number between 1 and 30, and after I get a few hours’ sleep, I’ll tell you what the book says.

My own thing to be happy about: Mercury has gone direct. It’s NEW STOVE time for The Compound.

Hump Day Happy

I’m sad because Mark G. Harris and Lisa will be returning to their respective wintry homes today (following a photo shoot, of course, though I’m about to endure a surly Mr. Harris when I tell him that).

So today, I NEED to read your things to be happy about to make me happy, too. If you want something from among 14,000 things to be happy about:

please give me a page number from 1 to 612 and another number between 1 and 30 and I’ll tell you what the book says.

Time to get your Hump Day Happy on

Good grief, it’s Wednesday again. So here’s the drill. Give me a page number from 1 to 612 and an item number between 1 and 30 (if your number is too high, I’ll just keep counting to the next page), and I will give you something to be happy about from this book:

Let me thank you all for your concern after my post about the loss of my friend Riley. I’m okay. And sometimes I’m not. But in honor of Things to Be Happy About, here are some things that make me smile when I think of Riley:

The night he got clotheslined (literally) while running from my house, a story that made me laugh hysterically whenever he told it for the next [number redacted] years.

The rock he found on the ground and gave me because it’s shaped like a heart.

Forcing him to sing “Rocky Raccoon”–AGAIN.

His Bob Dylan story.

The way he pronounced certain words, for example, “leak” (I gotta take a link.).

The time I hid in his closet.

I’ve got way more than 14,000 I’ll bet, and I’m grateful for them all.

Hump Day Happy

I’m sorry that I’m such a dull LJer lately. It will get better, I promise. Meanwhile, I figured why not add a new feature to Photo Friday and Button Sunday. I’ve decided to call it Hump Day Happy in honor of Wednesday, and you get to play along. Here’s how.

Years ago, when I was an assistant manager at a bookstore, I picked up this little item:

I recently rediscovered it when shifting books around. It’s 612 pages long, and every page has a list of 15-30 items to be happy about. If you want something to be happy about, in my comments, give me a page number between 1 and 612, and an item number between 1 and 30. I’ll locate that particular “thing” to be happy about and tell you. It may be silly. It may be something you’ve never thought of. It may give you an idea for a story or a post or a blog entry. Or it may just make you giddy with happiness on a Wednesday. If not–what the hell is wrong with you, do you just LOVE MISERY?

Comment if you please.
