I couldn't give you a post with that title and NOT throw this vid in.... *wink wink nudge nudge say no more* Monty Python's "And Now for something Completely Different" is hilarious, For those of you who like Monty Python and knew exactly what my title meant when you read it, you get a prize. What's the surprise you ask??? uh.....well let me get back to you on that!
Monday's are usually for "My favorite things" and this is just that only a little bit different... I'm finding it difficult to keep up with My favorite things....I mean in theory it's easy...but after a few times doing it, the way I do it, with pics/vids/sound bytes what have you, its getting to be time consuming... and I woke up late this morning...long story short I'm not doing a full blown My Favorite things, but a modified one...and for those of you who linked up last week ( I think there were only two, Thanks Jimmy, and FP mamma) or for those who where thinking about it, I may or may not cut the lists down to 5....I don't know.... we all know decisions are tough for me.
One of my favorite things to do with Trevor is take him to where my mom works....yup, sounds strange, but my mommy works at Armstrong garden Center, that's right....I, the bonified "plant killer" have a mother with a green thumb.... I can remember growing up in Middle school and all through highschool, with a garden in out front yard that people would literally stop and take pictures of....our front yard looked like the Botanical gardens at 33965....yet I cannot keep a plant alive for the life of me....and being that my mom works at a nursey, plants are a fairly normal gift or surprise....always with the disclaimer "Ok, you won't need to water this plant for at least a week, lets see if you can keep this one alive" I even kill cacti. I digress. I take trevor there not only to see his Grams, but to run around...its out doors, theres TONS of beautiful plants for him to look at, water fountains etc. He loves it. And so do I. The last time I was there, spring had totally sprung. There were, happy, perky, beautiful and very colorful flowers EVERYWHERE. I LOVE them. I guess my green thumb mama rubbed off her appreciation for the beauty of plants/flowers on me.
Ahhhh....they make me smile! And hopefully they did the same for you! I love making people smile...it's like my job or something. If i can make someone smile by putting on a mokey suit and dancing the Macerena with a cowboy hat I'll do it if thats what it takes! Don't get any ideas! I will only take drastic measures if neccessary. Making people smile is another one of my favorite things. I like to turn people's frowns UPSIDE DOWN! I guess I know how much I appreciate someone making me smile when I need it the most. Or when I'm just having a disgusting day, and a gesture or a few kind words from someone just totally turns it around... I love that. Or even better, laughing with a total stranger. Its great to find someone you don't even know who just randomly has the same sense of humor as you. Or turning something that makes you just smile into an all out, balls to the wall giggle attack... the kind that make you pee your pants.....yes, I pee my pants if I laugh too hard, what of it? I try to do little things for people to put a smile on their face... sometimes it's a big cheesy smile from myself....or if I'm at work I do this:
Just TRY to tell me that you would NOT smile if you saw that on the top of your smoothie!
So tell me....did YOU smile reading this? Please don't make me take drastic measures, just SMILE already!! :)
One last attempt:
Did it work?
