Shiny Happy People Part 2

Last week, I wrote a list of ’25 Things That Made Me So Happy I Want To Pee My Pants!’ – and the feedback that I have received from so many of you has been so sweet and funny – thank you! 🙂 When I wrote the original post last week, I had such a good time that I joked about doing it weekly – I don’t know if I will keep up that pace, but I’m certainly going to do it more often…thinking about things that make you happy is the most beautiful, refreshing change from the shit and drudgery that seems to dog my existance these days – I’m all about brightening things up! 🙂

So….without any further ado – here are this week’s ’25 Things That Make Me So Happy I Want To Pee My Pants!’:


Skinny Caramel Macchiatos (because they taste like heaven should taste)

Goats (those crazy kids)

The writing of Caitlyn Moran

Marina Franklin and her standup (I had never seen her before until her appearance on the special ‘Women Who Kill’, which also featured Amy Schumer, Rachel Feinstein and Nikki Glaser – and Marina was AMAZING!! LOOOOOOVE her!!!!) 🙂

These Minna Parikka shoes (seriously, I DIE – they come in heels as well)

I Dream Of Jeannie’s bottle-apartment (the coolest place EVER)
