Friday favorites

Hopefully today begins the recovery. My doctor prescribed an inhaler yesterday that -- while it's like taking speed and it kept me up all night -- really helped my breathing. And BOY. It's nice to be able to breathe again ... you guys (except Laura) probably all took it for granted all week, you know, the fact that you could breathe. Now that my sats are back up near 100 again, I'm feeling good about my prospects.

Nonetheless, I wasn't able to miraculously whip up a pithy post for today, so I thought I'd treat you to some of the things that made my Week from Hell slightly better than it would have been otherwise:

1. Laura, the Hollywood Housewife, just wrapped up the story of how she and her husband met and fell in love. I was captivated.

2. A goody from Fail Blog, a perennial favorite ... what were they THINKING?

3. The best automobile ad of all time, which no fewer than 14 people sent me (after I Tweeted it two days ago so WHO WASN'T PAYING ATTENTION?) because the entire planet knows of our undying love for all things Star Wars (and I use the term "our" loosely):

4. The 15 Most Popular Auto-Corrects of the Month from DYAC, a new favorite, including:

5. And last but not least, from another new favorite, When Parents Text, which is packed with gems like this:

MOM: I read your blog today. I was going to post a comment but I don’t know how to. I have chosen different possibilities…this time I chose URL (after googling “what the hell is URL?”). I typed out my comment and then tried to send it and a red bar showed up saying I was using illegal URL symbols or something…for God’s sake, I was using our alphabet…so I quickly deleted everything in case I was arrested or something.

Paige, I don't know why, but this reminded me of your relationship with your mother. And I've never even MET your mother.

Thanks for the giggle! :) I can't get enough of that commercial. I hope they play it during the Super Bowl.

Laughing so hard right now. I thought of my mother before I read your comment about it seeming like her.

Btw, Barry and I are both completely addicted to DYAC now because of you.

Those are great - I am dying laughing! Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend!!

Laura and family said...

So glad you are breathing better.

Loved all the laughs! My mom texts me and often has autocorrect moments. I'll have to post some of my favorites.
