Smile smile smile!

Okay, I may be a big girl at 20 years old, but I am not ashamed to say that I just love the show My Little Pony, Friendship is Magic. There are dozens of reasons to love it, from the many wonderful characters, to the high-quality animation, to the delightful songs, to the brilliant and very valid morals at the end of each episode. Funny, cutesy, zany, epic, and awesome! Maybe it's targeted towards children, but it doesn't talk down to anyone and is perfectly entertaining for anyone who is young at heart.

Anyway, I just saw the latest episode of MLP, A Friend in Deed (link to the entire episode here) and heard... this! I DARE you not to crack a smile for 3 minutes! You will find it impossible! ^_^

Even if you've never seen, and/or never plan to see My Little Pony, I promise that this song WILL make your day. It sure made mine.

LYRICS:
My name is Pinkie Pie (Hello!)
and I am here to say (How ya doin'?)
I'm gonna make you smile
and I will brighten up your day

It doesn't matter now (What's up?)
if you are sad or blue (Howdy!)
'cause cheering up my friends is just
what Pinkie's here to do

'Cause I love to make you smile, smile, smile (Yes I do)
it fills my heart with sunshine all the while (Yes it does)
'cause all I really need's a smile, smile, smile
from these happy friends of mine

I like to see you grin (Awesome!)
I love to see you beam (Rock on!)
the corners of your mouth turned up
is always Pinkie's dream (Hoof-Bump!)

But if you're kind of worried
and your face has made a frown
I'll work real hard and do my best
to turn that sad frown upside down

'Cause I love to make you grin, grin, grin (Yes I do)
busted out from ear to ear, let it begin
just give me a joyful grin, grin, grin
and you fill me with good cheer

It's true, some days are dark and lonely
and maybe you feel sad
but Pinkie will be there to show you that it isn't that bad

There's one thing that makes me happy
and makes my whole life worthwhile
and that's when I talk to my friends and get them to smile

I really am so happy
your smile fills me with glee
I give a smile, I get a smile
and that's so special to me

'Cause I love to see you beam, beam, beam (Yes I do)
tell me, what more can I say to make you see that I do?
it makes me happy when you beam, beam, beam
yes, it always makes my day

Come on everypony smile, smile, smile!
fill my heart up with sunshine, sunshine
all I really need's a smile, smile, smile
from these happy friends of mine!

Come on everypony smile, smile, smile!
fill my heart up with sunshine, sunshine
all I really need's a smile, smile, smile
from these happy friends of mine!

Yes a perfect gift for me
is a smile as wide as a mile
to make me happy as can be
smile, smile, smile, smile, smile!

Come on and smile!
come on and smile!

The Little Prince tames the fox

I've been wanting to post one this for a while, and now I finally got around to it! I gave a speech at Toastmasters on the 6th (yeah, I'm back in the Toastmasters game) and I really wanted you guys to see this! Even though it's supposed to be from an advanced manual, this speech was quite easy for me, because I'm doing Interpretive Reading, so all I had to do was read from a book, and I love to read out loud. So here you go!

Little Numbers

I came across this fan fiction early this morning and couldn’t stop reading it until I got to the end!

For those who know me well, you are well aware that, Glee is my favorite tv show ever, and my favorite characters in it are Kurt and Blaine. I absolutely love reading fanfics about them, because they are the sweetest teenage gay couple in the world!

Anyway, this story is, in my opinion, simply incredible! It’s written almost completely in text messages, sometimes in phone conversations. It’s so creative, and really makes it fun for the reader! I love it all the more because it reminds me of someone with whom I share a similar friendship… that's lasted for more than 3 years...

Check it out! There’s 14 parts to it so far, but it’s still ongoing. You don’t have to read it all, of course, but here’s a link to the first chapter.
