Happy Hour Friday

If you've been hanging around for a while then you know that Otie and I host a Happy Hour every Friday. Otie has the Mr Linky at his site (yeah, I let him have control of it, kinda like the remote, you know the guy has to hold it to feel manly).

I'm happy that my theme thursday post has been so well received. It was a little different for me, but I kinda liked it. Maybe I'll keep going with it. After all, my NoMoSlackMo story was lacking a bit and needed a bit of life (hahahaha) infused into it. Do you know what I'm talking about? If not, go see the post before this one (here).

I'm happy that today Gray's Anatomy was on again. Yippee. I love it. I'm hooked. I actually didn't start watching at the beginning, I started watching second season (with Denny). I think had I started earlier I may not have gotten hooked. But I am. It's my one vice. Well, along with wine. And chocolate. And wine.

Do you flickr? Well, I do. And one of my photo's went Explore! I kinda don't really understand it, but if your photo goes Explore it means that lots of people like it and lots look at it. This is the one that went Explore:

I call it melancholy. I may have posted it before, but there it is anyway. If you're into photography be sure to check out flickr, it's pretty cool. Here's the link to my photostream.

Umm, hmmm. I'm trying to think about what else makes me happy.

Oh sushi! I forgot, Bob emailed me at some point this afternoon and asked me out on a date to Wasabi. They have got the best sushi I've ever had. It was so-o-o-o good. My new favorite is the -- wait for it -- wasabi special. I don't have a clue what it is but it was awesome. And it had some crunchy stuff on top.

I'm happy that my workouts have been going well. I've increased my running distance by a mile so I'm up to... well more than a mile. No, I don't really wanna say what I've been running. Let's just say that I'm about where I was in high school, which makes me happy since now I'm some old broad that I hardly recognize and there's wrinkles and sagging and gray hairs popping up.

Okay, I think I just crossed the line from happy to depressed. Crap.

Well, be sure to go see Otie and find out what he's happy about. Then click on his little Linky and find out what everyone else is happy about too.

Have a great weekend!

Hey, you are FUNNY! And that's GooooD! The piano picture is outstanding, will bring a flood of memories to many...and me. Thanks!

blueviolet said...

I can see why that picture was so popular! Wasabi, huh? That's spicy!

otin said...

Sushi with crunchy stuff? Maybe they forgot to cut the fins off!? I would stick with the wine and chocolate!

Why work out? It only takes away from the wine and chocolate time.

You should keep doing Theme Thursdays.

Brian Miller said...

you really should keep writing on theme thursday...that rocked!

sushi is the bomb!

and the pic is nice too. smiles.

Lisa E said...

I love Sushi. I made it this week and it was fantabulous. Uhm, you scared me yesterday darling. I didn't know you had it in you. Very good and twisted!

AmyLK said...

Love the pic! No wonder it went Explore. I don't like Sushi. I tried it in Hawaii (can't get any fresher seafood!) and at Morimoto's in Philadelphia. Just can't get past that its RAW fish. lol

McGillicutty said...

Sushi is for the birds... they're the only ones who should eat raw fish!!!
Happy that you're happy! love the pic, discovered something way cool on Flickr, click on archive and then a month and it pops up a little calendar... and guess what?? your face was in Sept when we were at blog camp... it made me teary eyed!!
not really but it did make me happy!!

Doc said...

I think you should keep doing the theme thursay too. Yours was great and like I said, a start of a great novel. :)
I love your list of happy that picture of yours...very nice....glad your work outs are going well. My plans are to start working out again, next week. I ususally love working out but have lost the desire over the past 6 months in dealing with my injuries and pain but I am tired of making excuses. :) Happy Friday! And happy weekend! :) Cheers!

I agree with the others: nice piano pic.

Matty said...

I have a Flickr account too, but I haven't done much with it since I started blogging. I do have one photo that got a lot of attention that I took at St. Thomas. Your picture of the piano keys is awesome. I can see why it went Explore.

tori said...

I've missed you so I have some catching up to do. love the picture no wonder it gets so many views!
going to read some of your older posts now!

Joshua said...

Yeah, you can keep the sushi. I'll take the wine a.d chocolate though. And some cheese.

What's your poison with wine? Red or White? Which maker? I'm always on the lookout for good wine.

Jaime said...

gray's anatomy is a good vice. as is chocolate. and wine.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Congrats on your picture going Explore. I have no idea what that means but Congrats, Congrats, Congrats!

Little Ms Blogger said...

LOL - I love that you started out happy but the post turned to a depressed one.

Repeat after me: I will never look in the mirror at the gym while running on a treadmill.

This way you have the highschool image of yourself planted in your mind.

Your picture is fabulous! I can see why it's so popular. (I would hang it in my house somewhere.)
