The Blog Hop Of Joy





Before I write anything I just want to get this out there: Kyra Lennon is going to be famous. Just you watch!

Now back to our regularly scheduled blog post...

Kyra and the equally amazing Clair Dugmore came up with this pretty exciting blog hop to kick off March. All you have to do is list five things that bring you joy. I'm sure we all can list more than five but for the sake of this event I'll resist the urge. Just this once.

And we begin with: 

My Family. They drive me crazy sometimes but I don't think I can live without them. We've been through so many downs that our bond is near invincible.

The Internet. This might seem geeky but I absolutely cannot live without the internet. Sure, I survived without it for, um, sixteen years but now that I have it I'll never go black -- I mean back. Yes, I absolutely meant to say back.

Shameless US. I. LOVE. THIS. SHOW. I don't watch TV but I make it my duty to watch Shameless every Sunday without fail! They bring me so much joy because their attitudes and living circumstances remind me so much of where I grew up. It was never pretty -- or easy -- but me and my family made it work as a team. And we made it out.

Go team Gallaghers!

And finally, the thing that brings me the most joy is The Prospect Of A Brighter Tomorrow. Yeah, yeah.. it's gooey and full fo crap but it's true. For me, this means so much more than that -- it's about my ideas, my stories and my art. Every time I write or brainstorm an idea, I imagine what it would be like if it came true; what it would mean for me to be a success. That always, ALWAYS, brings me joy. I guess it's just that people and technology don't always bring you satisfaction but your imagination is infinite -- it will never disappoint.

At this very instant, I'm imagining myself at a book signing with a crowd of five hundred people eagerly waiting to reach my table.

Tell me that isn't joy.

I haven't been by here in forever *holds head in shame*
I love your plug to your girlfriend! So cute.
I haven't watched that show but I've been tempted!

It's so good! Emmy Rossum deserves an Emmy. She was in Beautiful Creatures but that movie flopped.

It's so good to see you again Dani.

Hope you enjoy your weekend. ^_^

Glad to see you back! I was worried you had thrown in the towel (like I myself did).
Solid list. Sometimes the cheesiest things are the truest!

What a sweet list. My family drives me absolutely bananas, but I could not survive without that crazy lot.

And yep, I totally agree, Kyra is the shiz. She is going to be famous one day, for sure.

I haven't been by in a whole either. How are you doing?

Mandy sounds like me. Don't do laundry or clean and I *might* be able to burn water. ;-P

Adriana Dascalu said...

Oh, the internet... Brings me both joy and frustration!

Kyra Lennon said...

First of all, thank you for the ego boost - totally makes up for you calling me grandma!

You have a girlfriend? I better quit flirting with you! :p

This is a great list, thanks for joining in with the hop!

Elizabeth Seckman said...

I agree; Kyra is extremely talented!

Mandy must be a special lady! And that whole being able to boil water is such an over rated skill!

Neil said...

The Prospect of a Brighter Tomorrow - with you all the way on that one! It would be a pretty grim world without it wouldn't it? We should cling onto that thought! Great list by the way :-)

Trisha F said...

LOL. I was a bit worried for a while there till you clarified things about Mandy. She sounds like a woman I can relate to! hehe

Well, I can cook but I find it one of the most boring things on earth to do, so I try to minimise how much of it I have to do. Thankfully it's only me I have to feed, at least except for my cats!

Nice things to be joyful about :)

Clare said...

Thanks for taking part in the bloghop; great list. What you said about your girlfriend was so sweet. <3
I'm with you man, couldn't live without the 'net.

I watch Shameless U.K - Love it. I'm Team Maguire, myself. ;)

DEZMOND said...

Yep, I couldn't live normally without Internet either!
