In the semi-sort-of spirit of the bloggers out there who spark our creativity (or at least ensure we have an increasing supply of new ways in which to blow entire work days) with such things as Mute Mondays and Friday's Feast I would like to declare today: Unabashedly Optimistic Friday.
(Yeah, yeah, it's one day only, but hey. Kinda hard to be that optimistic every Friday of one's life. But let's at least give it a go for today, shall we?)
Today's optimism theme was actually inspired by a sign in the margins of The Two Dog Blog that reads:
LAUGH HARD AT THE ABSURDLY EVIL.
(Don't you just love that?)
The Two Dog Blog is a recent discovery of mine. And I love, love, love it. Not only because it's written by Landis Smithers, the über cute (le sigh) creative director for Old Navy Stores who lives with his husband and two pit bulls in San Francisco, hence combining two of my loves - bull dawgs and well made but inexpensive basic fashion - but also because in everything he writes, Landis projects such a wonderfully sunny, optimistic attitude towards life, you just want to jump right through the screen and join him.
So tell Moi: What, if anything, makes you think that life is not meant for misery and pain and badly made shoes, but instead for enjoying its great big fat bowls of cherries in all their variety. With whipped cream. And sprinkles.
(Oh, and don't forget to tip toe over to Da Baking Blob for a bit of end-of-week fun.)
