A Few Good Things (And One Very Good Man)

Hey there Friday, I like your shoes. Did you get a haircut? Because something about you looks different. Not that you didn't always look good, but, you know. Today you're looking particularly swank.
Perhaps it is this snippet of genius: The Bright Side Project where Sunshine is Delivered Daily.

Tristan of the lovely Blah Blah Blahg hatched the idea as a way to stay positive in these dour times. Don't you just love a girl with a little get up and go? Every day she will be giving away something for free. That's right Friday, I said free. Pretty baubles, beautiful art, coveted home decor, maybe a mortgage payment or two if all goes well. All you have to do is visit and answer a question formulated to get you thinking about the bright side. Don't believe me? Check it out for yourself. No catch, I wouldn't do that on this, the beginning of the weekend.
Oh Friday, you with your happy hour. You'd think that being unemployed I would not be as affected by your charm, but you'd be wrong. Friday: job or no job, you still make me want to dance. Which makes me all the happier for finding this DJ Lance Rock Motion Activated Dance Hat that I will officially buy Zoey for her birthday and then wear every night after she goes to bed complete with glasses (included) and fuzzy orange socks to keep my feet warm (not included):

Just think Friday! I can have a party in my tummy (So yummy! So yummy!) every You night from here on out. Break it down, now.
And then there's this:
Dear Friday of a lost weekend, behave. How I have always loved me some James Franco, from greasy bad boy in Freaks and Geeks to slightly greasier stoner in Pineapple Express, grease has never looked so good. And now I hear that my celluloid lover has just signed a book deal for a collection of short stories? That all this time he has been going to graduate school for a degree in Creative Writing? That he is slated to star as Allen Ginsberg in a biopic centering on the obscenity trials for "Howl"? Push me over with a Smith Corona, Friday, and do not hit return: you are too, too good to me.
So Mr. Friday (for some reason I feel you are a man), casual You in those sexy ass jeans: Thank God It's You.

The panda was bad enough, but James Franco? Pushed me over the edge. TOO MUCH.

You seem awfully spunky today and I like it! Happy Friday to you!

Vanessa said...

Ummm... stop your creepy mind reading! I was just going to post about James Franco and his new book. I thought he couldn't get any sexier but he has shown me how wrong I can be. I think you and I may have to battle to the death over him.
Happy Friday! I'm going out to a swanky tapas restaurant tonight. What's less cool is that my Dad is taking me and my mom. I'm soooo glamorous.
Have an awesome weekend!

No worries Vanessa--my mom is spending the night at my house tonight. Zoey, my mom and I are going to paint our toenails. Watch out!

James Franco is mine mine mine except I am happily married so yeah, I'm selfish in my fantasies.

Happy weekend everyone!

Lolo said...

I'm so glad that I found your blog. You're an inspiration wrapped up in a wrapper of amputated piggies and served with a side of ginormous labia with a chaser of fizzy, little girl giggles.

Chicken! Yeah! In my tummy!


I'm going to buy that hat/glasses combo for Jeff. I think he would make a great DJ Lance for Halloween.

Lara said...

Great post! James Franco's mom is a children's book author. Just a little fyi...
