I have to be honest, I am feeling the exact opposite of this photo regarding this year’s holidays — I am almost giddy with anticipation. But still, this dog (named Delilah), made me laugh with her look of defeat.
I am really looking forward to the holidays this year as a) it means more time off with family, which I have been really missing b) I love pie and c) I feel really thankful for everything in my life right now.
That said, I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’m pretty upset with the state of the world at the moment. I’m particularly bothered by the racial events in my city as of late, the Syrian refugees and the bombings in Paris. There seems to be turmoil everywhere, and frankly, it is bringing me down. Maybe that’s why Thanksgiving and Christmas are so appealing this year. Cozying up to the fire and eating delicious food and being with wonderful friends just sounds so blissful right now. I know the problems are in no way going away, but taking a break from the news and the internet for a day or two sounds pretty great.
But! If you want to stay online, I promise this will keep you smiling. C’mon! You have to laugh at Darth Vader brushing his teeth! That right there is internet gold!
