Winning Laughter

A great big CONGRATULATIONS to the talented Brian Miller of WaystationOne for winning my CSNStores.com $100 Gift Certificate Giveaway. I'm a big Brian Miller groupie and truly love his writing. Please stop by, checkout his amazing posts and send a congrats on his win.

But before you go, this video was on the local news last night and made me so darn happy that I wanted to share it with you. The laughter of this baby is contagious and reminded me that the little things in life can fill you with joy-- Or at least a fun case of the giggles.


Hope you have a good belly laugh today!

I really enjoy Brian's poetry and writings, too....I would have loved to win the giveaway but it couldn't go to a nicer man.

What a delightful video. You know, I rip up all sorts of bills but it doesn't fill me with that sort of glee. I guess I'd have to pay them in full ( which isn't going to happen since the job loss ) to elicit a real belly laugh! ).

Hilary said...

Oh yay! I love it when the winner is someone I know and like. I'm so happy for Brian.

This child is adorable. That laughter is so infectious.. I get a kick out of hearing the Dad's laugh too as he enjoys his daughter's glee. So sweet. Thanks for sharing.

I see a future in paper shredding for that kid.

Rebecca said...

Reminds me of when Joey was about 10 months old (maybe younger) and he laughed a big ole belly laugh when I put one of his shoes on my head. It was grand!

Christine said...

Brian Miller said...

awww...thank you...i wish you could see me dancing right now!!! smiles. that is awesome JJ...for those that dont remember JJ is one of the ones that shaped my writing so...

Jeanie said...

I saw the video and it was impossible not to laugh with that baby. They said the paper was a rejection letter from a job application the dad had sent....makes it even better.

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Life with Kaishon said...

Me too! A super big
Brian miller groupie! : )
Happy weekend to one of my favorite girls JJ.

Ana said...

A childs belly laugh is contagious yu have to laugh even if you are not in the mood. Children are also a window onto what is required out of life to make you happy, 'paper ripping' how simple is that!!

Boozy Tooth said...

Hi Joanna! Long overdue greetings from Casa Hice! Thanks so much for visiting me at Boozy Tooth and leaving such a funny comment. Made my day!

I have been so absent from the blog scene that it's a rush seeing you and reading about Brian Miller (who I also owe a long overdue visit!).

Saw the baby video today on another site and was so amazed by how pure joy is, you know? So pure a little baby has mastered it. How I wish we could all feel such unmitigated joy every single day!

PS: My son Jordan just moved into a new apartment in Hollywood. I don't have his address yet, but I hear it's a nice place and know he's very very happy there. Last Sunday, he texted me a photo from a very barricaded Hollywood Boulevard of the Kodak Theater while the Academy Awards red carpet activities were in progress! He said the noise was deafening from the media stand and all the screaming fans. How marvelous to be there, soaking up all that show business. Look him up if you're ever having dinner at Ruth's Chris in Beverly Hills!

Shanae Branham said...

Thanks for supporting Simone and thanks for sharing the video! I am always looking for a good laugh.

Mike Smith said...

My daughter told me about this video but it's the first time I've seen it - brilliant!

Colleen said...

Sweet video. There's something primal about rippage, which (I guess) explains the enduring popularity of farts!

Marla said...

Yeah for Brian! Is he not just simply amazing?

Reminds me of the day I ripped up my marriage license.
