Okay, what is happening in my life when a Luna bar wrapper makes me cry? I always like to read the "Who Inspires You" box on the back, and the one today on my Chocolate Peppermint Stick Luna Bar (um, YUM), said this:
Anne: There was nothing better than having a little sister except having YOU as a little sister. You redefined a mother's dedication and strength while inspiring all who knew you. I miss you so much.
- Claudia

Sheesh, Claudia - way to bring me down when I'm enjoying my afternoon coffee and snackity ack. Now you've forced me to go find this photo to cheer myself up:

Because HOLY MARGE SIMPSON HAIRDO, what is UP with that?

You know what else would cheer me up? If I had actually pulled my phone out and taken a snap of the dude I saw at Target yesterday, with long white hair and a long white beard a la this guy: 

who was dressed in a dark pink tee shirt to match his dark pink plaid kilt, whilst shopping for a hot pink ladies' blazer. I ain't lyin. Not even a little.

You know what else cheers me up? This does:

"They wouldn't have to imagine each other if someone turned on the lights."

Seriously peeps, I almost had to go to the bathroom and collect myself after I saw that on Awkward Family Photos. Methinks I need to stop looking at it while I'm at work.

So what cheers YOU up when you're feelin' blue? And I don't mean just a little smile, I mean a full-on belly laugh? Give it up, homies.

First, LOVE the camo! Going shopping tonight for my b-day and I may just have to look for some myself.

Second, even though this make me sound like a lame-o dork, Disney songs always cheer me up. No, I'm not 4 years old.

Welcome back from vacay!!! I have seriously missed my daily dose of shannanisms or shannan crack... you pick. And for a good belly laugh, well folks, I just wander across UMKC's campus and amuse myself with what the kids are wearing to class on any given day. Let's just say spandex was never intended to stretch that much!

Karrin - happy late birthday, I hope your camo wish was granted!!

Paula - Awwww, thanks! And thanks for the tip on the UMKC campus. Mental note - if I'm ever down in the dumps, visit the campus for Spandex Watch 2012.
