Happy?

What does happiness look like?

McDonald’s says this:

He’s the new mascot for their Happy Meal.

New to the States, I should say. He’s been repping the kid’s menu in France since 2009, and Latin America and Europe since.

I think he looks a bit like the Kool-Aid mascot who crashed through walls when I was a youngun. But many online  find the meal mascot a bit scary…and are creating memes to prove their point.

Yeah, I feel you.

I should have gone to bed early last night. I mean, I had to get up at 4:45am to make my flight to Orlando.

But once Twitter exploded with the news that Craig Ferguson announced his retirement while taping last night’s Late Late Show, I had to stay up and watch.

To mix metaphors, misery loves rubbing salt in the wound.

I love Craig Ferguson on Late Late Show.  Who else could even conceive a robot skeleton, dancing horse, and invisible band…and turn them into such irreverent, hilarious TV night after night? Craig’s segments are improvised and spontaneous —  and probably every publicist’s nightmare — and that’s why they are so much fun to watch.

I was truly heartbroken at the news.

Then I watched the show. Craig seemed lighter and happier once he has made the announcement. I think keeping the news to himself all these weeks has been wearing. And a future full of new possibilities has him all excited.

I understand that lust for change. So I can be supportive as he chooses this new path.

But I won’t lie and say it doesn’t hurt.
