For those Twilightaholics out there (besides myself - DUH!) the Eclipse soundtrack is available for purchase TODAY.  I'll be making that purchase once I'm at home later and so should you & you can do that here.

On a completely different note, I recently starting doing the "Hip Hop Abs" workout DVD program.  One week down.  I've done the first workout video part called 'Fat Burning Cardio' almost 10 times now and I'm kinda irritated.  The videos are instructed by Shaun Thompson, he's awesome, but there is a girl named Tania who is in the majority of the workouts... long story short - she smiles.... and she smiles A LOT.  Don't get me wrong, I'm all for smiling, but seriously... I don't care to see you smile while I'm suffering through it all...

(And it really does last the entire workout...blimey!)

So it got me thinking... maybe the workout would be better if I smiled... sooo, I smiled and it is better.

I'm here to attest to the power of smiling.  Smiles are contagious and smiling in a moment of irritation and/or suffering really does make it a little better.  So, smile and smile A LOT, y'all!

Happy Tuesday -- tell me about your summer plans so I can be jealous! :)


PS. As if I haven't already name-dropped enough in this post, head over here to see my most recent design blog-post, featuring :: The Duh Family, what a lovely bunch.
