flying into the nothing…


And we’re doing a Friday Happy Dance of JOY!!! hour with Lisa Kessler, aka @LdyDisney. Welcome girls and boys. Haven’t done this for a while.

But I’m in the mood.

I’m in the mood because I am up and running — and I use that phrase loosely — with the new notebook and Windows 8, and today is going like this:

Where are my files?

Where are my pictures?

Ooh. Shiny!

What is that beep?

Why does the Skype box keep popping up?

Ooh. Big screen!

I’ve either fallen down the rabbit hole, or I’m flying into the Nothing on the back of Falkor the luckdragon.

It feels intense.

So let’s just do some Friday joy.

Here are Of Monsters and Men, an indie folk/indie pop band out of Iceland. You can find them on Facebook, Twitter, and… oh, just Google! I love how the drummer is finding his joy. This is Mountain Sound.

A shout out to my good friend @KeziahFenton for sharing her love of Of Monsters and Men. She finds the best music groups ever.

TGIF, baby!


Why, yes. Yes, I did change my header. I like it.

Goin’ up…

It’s Friday Happy Dance of JOY!!! hour with Lisa Kessler, aka @LdyDisney. Welcome girls and boys.

Today, We’re throwing down a little Canadaland with the Canadian folk-rock band out of Newfoundland — Great Big Sea. It seems only right, as we head into the long weekend celebrations for Canada Day on July lst.

Goin’ Up

I know you want to be in this video, Lisa!

A shout out to my good friend @KeziahFenton for sharing her love of Great Big Sea on her Facebook page with their Run Runaway. I’m pretty sure she listens to them while she writes.

Goin’ Up gave me a good dose of FHDofJ.

For Cheese Freaks Lovers Everywhere ~ @ Cheese and Toast, Curds and Eh eps 2: Quebec (get ready to change your summer vacation plans) by guest blogger, Kelsie Parsons. I see a Quebec field trip in our future. There isn’t anything I don’t love about this blog. Clickety click.

For Garden Lovers Everywhere ~ @ The Soulsby Farm, Dan Soulsby’s 10 Useful Tips for Every Gardener. I recently discovered The Soulsby Farm blog on sustainable farming and gardening, and I cannot look away. Click on over.

The big question I see on my Twitter and FB feed today is… Are you going to see Magic Mike this weekend? Who is going to see Magic Mike this weekend? And variations on that theme.

Sadly, I am not. No one wants to sit next to Super Viral Crud Woman and her haaaaaack! Although, I’m wondering if the audience would even notice.

Will I be going? Why, yes. I will.

FYI ~ I had to agree to go to some live musical production of I don’t wanna with Mr. G, honey in order for him to agree to go with me to see Magic Mike. I’d probably be smarter to just go alone.

Just sayin’.

TGIF, baby!
