Nice Thoughts Challenge

Nice thoughts challenge!

Nice thoughts challenge! Say five nice things about yourself and send it out to/tag 10 people.  I was tagged by lilone1776 (OMGLOVEYOU!!!)

1. I generally pick up the tab unless beat to it by friends when we’re out

2. I give my all to my children, even when it exhausts me, because they deserve it…and probably more

3. I try to reach out to each and every person who does something nice for me and personally thank them

4. Sometimes my entire day’s goal is to just make someone else happy, especially when I know they’re havin’ a rough time

5. I like to think I’m a good person— and i take being called ‘mean as a rattlesnake’ as a damn compliment. 

I tag: quodl, jennifercaryolyn, minnelli-pants, teamgleggie, thelonliestbeachcomber, hoovesmacaw, raicodoll, laur-n-peace, world-of-daryl, and andyobjectified Because you’re all amazing. 

And if you’ve already done this, or just don’t wanna, that’s cool. I’m a bit late to the party because of my lack of ability to actually be able to sit down for any length of time to anything on the computer. 


It’s the Birthday of LBJ!

Lyndon Baines Johnson was born on August 27, 1908, in central Texas, not far from Johnson City, which his family had helped settle. 

In 1937 he campaigned successfully for the House of Representatives on a New Deal platform, effectively aided by his wife, the former Claudia “Lady Bird” Taylor, whom he had married after a whirlwind courtship in 1934. 

During World War II, Lyndon Johnson served briefly in the Navy as a lieutenant commander, receiving a Silver Star in the South Pacific. After six terms in the House, he was elected to the Senate in 1948. In 1953, he became the youngest Minority Leader in Senate history, and the following year, when the Democrats won control, Majority Leader. With rare legislative skill he obtained passage of a number of measures during the Eisenhower Administration. He became, by many accounts, the most powerful Majority Leader of the twentieth century.

LBJ’s “Great Society” program included aid to education, Medicare, urban renewal, beautification, conservation, development of depressed regions, control and prevention of crime and delinquency and removal of obstacles to the right to vote. Read More

Reminder that when Robert Kirkman killed Glenn in the comics, Steven Yeun sent him this letter.

In re-reading this and remembering Season 4 Glenn’s sickness, can we all appreciate one line though…

"…pool of your own sweat and spaghetti cough residue from a mild to mild severe case of Tuberculosis."
