I may have said this somewhere before, but I am known for being very emotional -- I just can't keep it in, whatever the emotion I am feeling. Usually it is laughter (I am very lucky!), but sometimes it is sadness, and believe me I can cry at the drop of a hat. Well, not literally of course, what's so sad about dropping a hat, after all?... but I digress. Even a commercial can make me sappy! So when I watch a sad movie, there had better be a lot of kleenex handy! (I know I should say tissues ... oh, nevermind!)
Fast forward a few years and there's me with my husband again. I was telling him my problems, after a bad day at work (or something). There he goes getting all upset again, and giving me all kinds of unnecessary advice, that just ended up making me feel annoyed and then pretty soon we'd be arguing! So I figured out I should tell him, it was okay really, that I just needed to vent, and he didn't have to feel like he had to solve my problems. Perhaps I just needed a "Zah-Zuzz"? So he filed that piece of information away. Then the next time I started ranting about my work issues, when I was finally done and took a breath, my husband looked at me with a very sad and forlorn look and said, "Awww! Zah-Zuzz". Well, it just broke me up and I started laughing so hard, and so did he and suddenly it was the best day ever!
So here's to everyone out there who is going through some bad times... I can't really help you, but I hear you and I do care, so here you go....
This song isn't exactly what I was talking about, but the silly lyrics themselves and the upbeat rhythm might cheer up someone with the blues.
Zaz Zuh Zaz / Cab Calloway

This is one of my favourite songs that never fails to make me feel better. The Kinks are always a lot of fun and even when serious they are still very upbeat.
Dr. Seuss has a lot a good sayings that could possibly make someone feel better. They don't call him "Dr." for nothing! Here are a few I like:
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.”“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”
Well, nothing makes a Richard Armitage fan feel better than ogling another picture of the wonderful man himself. A little "Armitage Therapy" anyone?
Here is Dr. Alec Track from The Golden Hour to the rescue.
What's that? A phone call for me?
You're hurt? I'll be right there!
I'm on my way!
Now let's have a look here!
Well, it's just what I thought.... the worst case of Armitagemania I've ever seen!
