Seeing a wild stork walking on a piece of grass fairly near my metro station on my way to work today made my smile
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

Finding some cousins who live in Croatia that I'd lost contact with a few years ago are now on Facebook made me smile this morning. :D

As I detailed on the Happy Star Wars Day thread, coming across the webcomic Darths and Droids. For the uninitiated, it's a webcomic set in a world where Star Wars, as a movie, never came about, but ended up becoming a tabletop RPG. The story of the film develops (initially) because one of the players goes increasingly off the script of the Game Master. Hilarity ensues. Where else can you have Qui-Gon Jinn saying "Jar-Jar, you're a genius!" sincerely?

The archives of the webcomic are here: http://www.darthsanddroids.net/archive.html

This made me smile!!

His Lordship was in the study at Downton Abbey when the butler approached and coughed discreetly.

"May I ask you a question my Lord?"

"Go ahead Carson" said his Lordship.

"I am doing the crossword in The Times and I have found a word I am not too clear on"

"What word is that?" said his Lordship.

"Aplomb" my Lord.

"Now that's a difficult one to explain. I would say it is self assurance or complete composure"

"Thank you my Lord, but I'm still a little confused".

"Let me give you an example to make it clearer. Do you remember a few months ago the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived to spend a weekend with us?"

" I remember the occasion very well, my Lord. It gave the staff and me much pleasure to look after them."

" Also", continued the Earl of Grantham, "Do you remember Will plucked a rose for Kate in the rose garden? "

"I was present on that occasion, my Lord, ministering to their needs"

"While plucking the rose a thorn embedded itself in his thumb very deeply"

Carson replied, "I witnessed the incident my Lord and saw the Duchess herself remove the thorn and bandage his thumb with her own dainty handkerchief."

"That evening his thumb was so sore, Kate had to cut up his venison from our own estate even though it was extremely tender."

"Yes my Lord, I did see everything that transpired that evening."

"The next morning while you were pouring coffee for Her Ladyship, Kate enquired of Will with a loud voice," "Darling does your prick still throb?"

"You, Carson, did not spill one drop of coffee. That is aplomb!"
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.
