Hump Day Spamathon  
Beauty Like The Night link for anyone who clicked over from su_herald, it's in the comments. Thank you so much for reading!

So a lot of my flist are down in the dumps right now. I have no idea how widespread that saying is, it might be everyone uses it, it might be a UK thing, it might be a Scottish thing, it might be a tiny village on the west coast of Scotland not that far from Faslane sub base thing, it might be a Sho's mum thing, but hey, if it fits - right?

I know a lot of you are having spectacularly crappy times of it, I know that I have been, and I know that having friends around who I can go and see and hug in person has helped me more than I can say. I know I've maybe not been that supportive online lately, I know I've been closed off and a little abrupt from time to time. And I want to make up for it by hosting a Hump Day Spamathon.

It's Wednesday, the week's half done. It's almost Spring (if you're in the Northern Hemisphere that is... sorry to the Aussies on my flist, but Autumn's probably my favourite season if that helps?). There are lots of reasons to be cheerful and help other people smile or laugh.

So here's your chance.

The First Hump Day Make Someone Smile Spamathon


Fic, pictures, graphics, messages, comments, jokes, whatever you want - fandom or not.

Send a message, make someone smile, either post a link here or use the comments to post the whole thing.

Have fun, spread the love. It doesn't have to be just today, you can come back and comment any time.

There's no time limit, there's no rules, there's no pressure. Just make someone's day by making them feel loved.

This is not to make me smile (although that's an added bonus!), this is for you to share things with the people you care about, this post is just acting as a holding area.

ETA Anonymous commenting is allowed although they will be screened initially 'cause that's my journal's default setting.

Second edit Since there seems to be a problem with the embedded YT vids showing up in the comments, here's a link to the format=light version of this page in which they show up find. *is confuddled*

I don't know if you've heard about a site called Ravelry - it's an online organiser for knitters and crocheters and there's thousands of groups over there... well, when the Discworld group found out about PTerrys Alzheimers', they decided to do a patchwork blanket for him...

Some of the photos are here, some might make people grin a little, they certainly do me...

From time to time I can have a flash of inspiration. Doesn't happen often, but hey, when they strike?

monkey_matt just asked me to post a picture of an elephant being happy with his balloon. I don't have a picture of that, but a little while ago dodger_winslow found this video of an elephant on a trampoline on YT so I thought it might do instead.

Today is a snow day and therefore, EVERYTHING IN IT IS GOOD FOREVER.

And in celebration of snow and the city of Québec, that I love so very much, I present you one of the insane things we have every winter or so:

RedBull Crashed Ice!

Oh my god! That's insane! And awesome! How long does that course stay there for? I'm assuming it is just temporary, right?

I put my tale of joy and yay out there for anyone who hasn't seen it (or who has seen it but would benefit from seeing it again).

Ha! I've read it and recced it before, but it's just awesome!

Lovely idea!

BTW, down in the dumps is a phrase even we barbarians in the States use.

Awesome - I've not heard anyone else use the phrase for a while so I wasn't sure what the etymology was.

SPN/AtS Crossover Drabble: Beauty Like the Night (R rated for innuendo sake)
Fingers, once silken, now calloused and work worn, tremble in anticipation as they trail over her sleek curves, admiring her, mapping her by touch, worshipping her with his hands. She feels cool beneath his skin but the promise of heat, of power, is right there. Lindsey can't remember the last time his breath was stolen by such beauty.

A hesitant hand touches his arm and he looks into an anxious face aching for his approval. The implicit trust warms him.

"Beautiful." He whispers, and as Dean's eyes light up, Lindsey hopes he knows he's not just talking about the car.

DAAS - I Fuck Dogs
Here you go my lovely, I give you the Doug Anthony Allstars - better known as DAAS to us Aussies. If you've seen Jensen's appearance on Good News Week and heck, who hasn't! Then you will recognise the Paul McDermott.

Not safe to play out loud at work. Whoopsie, forgot to add that. My bad.
