Fall in the Beautiful Shenandoah Region

sunlight playing with leaves

Am away at a work training in the beautiful Shenandoah region of VA this week (hence the lack of posts) and it is the most beautiful time of the year to be here! This is a pic I took on UVA’s campus.

One of the Greatest Philosopher-Actors of Our Time

Let’s celebrate Jean-Claude Van Damme’s birthday a day late with this tribute to some of his greatest and most philosophical reflections.. click on the pic for his top ten, with sources listed, lest you think they are made up ;). Oh Buzzfeed, you make me so happy.

Fall = Best 3 Weeks (or So) of the Year

Man I love fall! Don’t know if you’ve noticed (perhaps so, if you found yourself here via a search engine) but for whatever reason, while there are many sites that talk about fall foliage and where to find it, most of them don’t have pictures! Does not make sense. Anyway! I did find this one great, short article on 5 beautiful fall foliage spots across America (click on the link or pic to go to there). While I do love the beautiful muted and golden shades of leaves here in Virginia, this picture from the White Mountains Trail in New Hampshire took my breath away.

Men Have Feelings Too

I inexplicably woke up with this in my head this morning. Wherein I identify myself as a child of the 90s :). Thought it might bring back some nostalgic LOLs for you too :).

I Don’t Even Watch Awards Shows, But I’ll Probably Watch This One

 

Saturday Night Live may not be funny anymore, but these two alum are great together! And they’ll be co-hosting the Golden Globes this year, on Sunday Jan 13th.  Which reminds me, didn’t Seth McFarlane get tapped to host the Oscars? I don’t know if he is as funny as his characters, but looks like I’ll be checking out some awards shows this year! This also reminds me I still need to check out Tina Fey’s book from a few years ago *moves to top of reading list*…

I’m Liking It Turns 1 Today!

…or as I’ve come to affectionately call it, my blog’s blogiversary.

By the way, interesting process thinking about “what picture best represents a blogiversary?” I went with this one of my lil dog through her ball cuz it’s all about what makes you smile over here, and this does for me!

About that, I’m just an 8-to-5-er who likes a smile to start my day, and something to laugh at during the middle of a long work day, and occasionally something that gets the gears in my mind cranking :P. And I read a few websites pretty regularly and figured there’s probably people out there who don’t want to sift through blogs to stumble across a good laugh or inspiration, so I decided to try to write a blog that would be the reader’s digest version, highlighting the best light entertainment out there :). And it’s done alright for itself! Coincidentally, today the view count will hit 5000 views! I know some sites get that and more in an hour, but in little old moi’s little old world that’s a lot, and a nice blogiversary present :).

Thank you to all of you for stopping by to check it out! I’m having lots of fun writing it and am curious to see how it will grow over the next year! And thank you to my favorite sources for material, dlisted, nbcnews.com, and youtube, and to all my friends who are doing cool and creative things that I was able to profile.

Couple  quick stops on memory lane:

Here was my first blog post (other than just intro to the concept of the blog)

Did you know I’m Liking It‘s busiest day so far was actually way back last November 22nd, because this was a funny little gem

And looking forward to the next year! Thanks again!!

 

Blog Appreciation Week, Day 5: Forcing Myself Happy

Ok, I’m not totally in love with the title of the blog I am featuring today, Forcing Myself Happy,but I definitely dig its purpose: to be intentional every day about actively doing something in the name of happiness, and enriching your quality of life. It is her 6 month journey of doing this and seeing what results in terms of her own happiness. I just started checking in on this one recently, so am curious to see how it goes.

Her blog is sometimes like mine, in that it shares cool stuff that other people have done more than something original by the author. The author serves as the eye, not as the artist. Below is a video that was featured on her blog, but that wasn’t created by her. It’s super cute and positive, and I’m glad she brought it to my attention, and that I can bring it to yours. But if you want to check out more of her original thoughts and experiences, click here to go to Forcing Myself Happy.
