Quick, say something nice!
OK, I'm sorry I've taken so long, but this week has been one big slice of crap on crap toast and I figured February is depressing enough for everyone without dragging the rest of you into my personal Suckfest '08. I am nothing if not thoughtful while bawling on my couch with a fistful of chocolate in one hand and an array of sharp objects in the other. (Ha.)
Moving on! Without any FURTHER ado, the winner of the CD is ... Stephanie! And because I can never pick just one, the second winner is ... Cecily! Send me your address, ladies, and I will send you merely the greatest CD ever created.
OK, speaking of bad days/weeks/months/lives, have you heard of the website Quick, Say Something Nice? This is a very cute website. You go there, and it gives you a quick compliment. If you don't like the compliment, you hit the thumbs down and it gives you another. If you need another (or 20), you hit the thumbs up and it keeps feeding your ego until you feel better. You can also submit compliments of your own.
Examples of some of the compliments:
"Stop being so awesome. You're giving me a complex."
"If you, me and my iphone were in a boat and it was sinking, I would save you."
"You are a saint for putting up with those people at work."
"It's impossible to be in a bad mood with you around."
"You never have a bad hair day."
"I dig you more than cheese. And you know how much I love cheese."
FUN, right? So for this, the last weekend of the shittiest month on the calendar (THANK GOODNESS. Hello there, pretty light at the end of the tunnel!), leave a quick, funny, awesome compliment you've given or received (or would LIKE to receive) in the comments and we can all read them and smile. Have a good weekend, everyone!
