Feel Good Friday: The days of our week edition

Photo: flickr/ Dafne Cholet

Hi all, happy Friday, if Friday is indeed your last day of the week.

And for the non-Monday-to-Friday workers, I feel that pain. But happy Friday nonetheless!

This week has been an odd one for me. Unsurprisingly, I have already failed rabble's Vegan Week Challenge, though not as in such spectacular fashion as years before, so that's something. Surprisingly, I was in New Jersey. And predictably, I watched The Fast and the Furious.

I also wrote Feel Good Friday for you to enjoy. So, I hope you do.

Feel Good Friday: Be serious edition

Photo: flickr/Edwin van Buuringen

So we meet again. Another Friday, another great list of hilarious and feel good linkage.

Don't believe me? Canadian celebrity news? Check. Bad ass young girls? Check. CATS? Oh that's a check.

And yes, there's some serious stuff in there as well. Geez. Why so serious?

Though I do refer to myself as a "Gollum-back" this week, so, point taken about perhaps being more professional...

On second thought, here's your lead story about a bobcat catching a shark.

Feel Good Friday: We need to talk about The Fast and the Furious edition

Photo: Michelle Reid

I think it is a well known fact that I love terrible movies. And by terrible I mean amazing.

Therefore, I'm not embarrassed to tell you all that I saw Furious 7 on the opening weekend and then proceeded to talk about it all week at work and tried to rope some of my colleagues into a Fast and the Furious 1-7 marathon.

None of this is really related to Feel Good Friday. I just wanted to say that in case anyone wanted to talk about Fast and the Furious with me, specifically Furious 7 and the scene with The Rock and his arm cast, in the comments section.

Feel Good Friday: I'm here for the candy edition

Photo: flickr/ dotpolka

Happy Friday all!

This is not the first time I have talked about candy here, nor will it be the last, but it is my tied-for-first favourite candy time of the year: Easter. Or really, the day after when everything is discounted.

Creme eggs, malt balls, peanut butter eggs. Don't talk to me about mini eggs though. Really. Don't.

But if you don't like candy (WHAT), I've got something else sweet for you: this week's Feel Good Friday!

So grab a creme egg, or an apple, and sit down and let the goodness wash over you.

Feel Good Friday: It's Frie-day! edition

Photo: flickr/J R

Hello everyone and happy Friday!

Full disclosure: I stole the joke "It's Frie-day!"

It's so funny! How could I not?

And because I did, there's lots of delicious feel good news here for you.

Now that joke is a Kaitlin McNabb original.

Feel Good Friday: How tired are ya? edition

Photo: flickr/ Umberto Salvagnin

Wow. My non-rabble life is seriously kicking my ass right now. Well, let's be honest, my rabble life is probably kicking my ass right now too.

You probably feel me on that. How tired are you?

I'm so tired the bags under my eyes have become suitcases.

I'm so tired I thought today was spring when there's a snowstorm outside my window.

Feel Good Friday: Lookin' good edition

Photo: flickr/ Clay Gilliland

Ah, you know. Things are looking up these days!

The big ball of fire has come out in the east coast, I found two packages of dried cheese in my macaroni and cheese box and Shad was named the new host of CBC's Q.

There will also be national protests against Bill C-51 this Saturday to send a big old message to Harper.

So kick back this weekend, put your sunglasses on, grab a marker and scribble "stop Bill C-51" and hit the streets with your community.

Happy Friday!

Feel Good Friday: This one's for the ladies edition

Photo: flickr/ Nick Harris

This one goes out to the ladies this week.

It's International Women's Day this Sunday March 8, so let's celebrate some of the amazing work women are doing to help improve lives of other ladies and people in this world.

And there is also the requisite cat link too.

Happy International Women's Day and Happy Feel Good Friday

 

  • We're going to start off by playing this video in the background to set the mood

Feel Good Friday: I'm so excited! edition

Like this article? Chip in to keep stories like these coming.

This week. Well, this week is the week activist dreams are made of.

In one fell swoop we saw BIG WINS like Vancouver transit police cancelling its Memorandum of Understanding with Canada Border Services Agency, Shell cancelling the Pierre River mine project and Obama vetoing the Keystone XL pipeline.

This week is one to remember always and bring out on those drier days.

Feel Good Friday: We get it. It's warm edition

If one more smug BCer *cough* rabble's west coast people *cough* smugly talks about the smug cherry blossoms and their smug blooming or the beautiful smug biking in the warm smug weather, I'm gonna scream.

We get it : You live in the Pacific Northwest where winter ceases to exist and snow is this funny little thing you tell hushed stories while reminiscing about your non-west coast lives. Great.
