...when Annie not only came home from her Library Teen Advisory Board meeting in high spirits (she'd had a really down day), but related this amusing story. One of the events the library is sponsoring next year is fashion show in coordination with the local Goodwill store. The teen librarian asked for volunteer models, and apparently a few kids thought it would be "gross" to wear clothes from the thrift store. Yeah, whatever. Anyway, when Annie said she'd be happy to do it, the woman said, "Oh good, Annie. I was really hoping you'd do it because you have such a fun, unique style." She went on talking before Annie had a chance to tell her that 99% of her clothes really *do* come from thrift stores. :)
...at the sweet joy in Gray's voice as he sat alone in the living room reading one of his brother's Garfield books. "Oh Garfield, you never fail to make me smile," was uttered with what could only be interpreted as true love.
...when I got to read Chris's NaNo chapters so far. OMG. I am so in love with his book so far...I swear I'm not going to want him to take the weekend off from writing. In just two days I think I've become a junkie and will go through withdrawal without my morning fix. :P
...when I finally got to crack open the cover on the Jericho: Season 3 Civil War graphic novel last night. Of course, along with making me smile, it also made me sad because I so wish that show had lasted.
...when Aldo jumped up on the table trying to get at Gray's waffles. Okay, so I really shouldn't be smiling at a cat on the kitchen table (and I didn't allow her to stay), but her waffle obsession totally cracks me up.
...when I realized how very little of the leftover Halloween candy I've eaten.
