August Happiness Challenge -- Day 28

Look at my happy kitty
Sunday's happiness: Afternoon at the movies. I've been so Cubbie obsessed this season that I haven't wanted to miss a single game, and that has cut into my movie going. However the local theater has three movies I wanted to see, and my team was in LA so they had a late start time, so I was able to catch a matinee.

I saw Florence Foster Jenkins with Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant. Of course Meryl Streep was impressive, she always is. But Hugh Grant was a revelation. It's so seldom that we see him disappear into a character. Simon Helberg -- he of the Beatle bangs on Big Bang Theory -- is also very, very good.

Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world.

If you want to play along, just come back here (meaning to this blog, not this individual post) each day in August, looking for the happy cat. Every day I will try to have a post with the headline: August Happiness Challenge: Day [X]. Leave a comment and then post your own daily happiness, with August Happiness Challenge in the title to make it easy to find.

  1. Thanks for the movie review. I've wondered just how good it is. Of course, Meryl is amazing but it the rest of the cast and the story don't measure up....

    Glad you got to check one off your list!!

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
