But to keep myself from bathing too deeply in self-pity (and to keep myself blogging), I am starting a new project, called "What's Making Me Happy This Week." I am blatantly stealing the idea from my favorite podcast, NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour. If you have never listened, DO EEET. NOW. You will be a happier person for it.
It turns out, even if your week has been a fetid poop-storm of legendary proportion, you can still find something that's making you happy. If nothing else, the Internet has cats. Check this out:

Maybe domestic pets aren't really your thing. Maybe you prefer to spend your time complaining about how stinky/hairy/ungodly people in every country but yours are. I have the thing for you! Thirty-one maps celebrating gloriously awful stereotypes of every nationality. (Or enough of them.) Here is one of my favorites:

(Is it too late to point out that these last two are not for those of delicate sensibilities? It is? Oops.)
What's making YOU happy this week?
