Thursday, January 8th, 2009

Via reddit, I found youtube faceoff, which is a great idea. But via this site, I found these two AWESOME videos!



Powerthirst 2: Re-Domination

Vote here!

I was made uncomfortably giggly. I literally laughed until I cried. I was like, “How do I justify putting these videos on the Made of Happy site?” when I realized that if I’m laughing until I’m crying, then I’m pretty happy, at least momentarily. So today, it is I who is made of happy!

New Homes For Katrina Victims Are Made of Happy

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

Leonard Riggio, the chairman of Barnes and Noble, made a $20-million contribution. WOW. This story came out right around Christmas, but it’s still awesome. I will break my resolve to spend less money and buy a book from B&N this week. 🙂 Thanks, Mr. Riggio, for making Katrina families so happy!

Martha Stewart + Snoop Dogg?! Is Made of Happ…izzle?!

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

I have no photo or video with the right copyright to post here. I also have no words. I am not a particular fan of Martha Stewart or Snoop Dogg. I am, however, grinning from ear to ear at the strange camaraderie they show on this clip. Featured are: letters from Snoop to “MS”, comparing “posses”, and a cognac bottle shaped like a woman. You’d think this would be some sort of ill-natured, “ha ha, look how stupid they are” kind of trainwreck video, but instead, this is simply charming and adorable.

Snoop Dogg And Martha Stewart Laugh, Cook, Compare Posses (VIDEO) on The Huffington Post.

Thursday, January 1st, 2009

From the TEDTalks website, the description reads:

Humorist John Hodgman rambles through a new story about aliens, physics, time, space and the way all of these somehow contribute to a sweet, perfect memory of falling in love.

Remembering falling in love with your life partner is made of happy. Happy New Year to my own wonderful husband! 🙂

Giving Unemployed Workers Their Jobs Back Before Christmas Is Made of Happy!

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

Look, I used an exclamation point in the title. This should tell you how awesome this news is! The baking/cookie company, Archway, in Ohio had shut down abruptly back in October, leading to 300 people losing their jobs. The method in which they did it was particularly hard on the workers: they had changed their locks overnight and people found out when they showed up for work and tried to get inside.

“Wait,” you say. “Gladmin,” you say, “this isn’t made of happy! This is made of crappy!” Hmm… a new idea for a blog shows up in my head… *shakes head* No, no, this IS made of happy, I swear. Bear with me! *growl* Sorry, dumb pun.

But then Lance Inc., a Charlotte, North Carolina-based snack food company, purchased Archway at a bankruptcy auction. And last week 60 workers were asked to return immediately, with perhaps more coming back in the months ahead.

That’s wonderful. But wait, there’s more!

When it promised to reopen the bakery, Lance gave all 300 former Archway workers a $1,500 prepaid debit card.

“I was crying,” Devan says of the gift. “I am like, ‘What are these people doing? They don’t know me. They don’t know us. They don’t know any of the Archway people. And they are giving each and every one of us $1,500.’ ”

Sexton — the woman who’d been preparing her kids for a meager holiday — says of the $1,500 gift: “It was awesome. My first thought was, ‘I can give my kids a Christmas.’ ”

David Singer, CEO of Lance, says the gift cards were a way of letting Ashland know the new owners are different. “We wouldn’t do it willy-nilly,” Singer says. “We do want to make money. But this is the pool of folks that we intend to hire. We just wanted to let them know who we were.”

The 60 workers rehired so far are earning their previous salary and retained their seniority. They also were provided health insurance from day one.

Via Shuttered bakery reopens, rehires workers – CNN.

I am totally going to buy a cookie from Archway and Lance! You are such awesome employers! Like Sears, David Lance & his company are doing right by the people who make up their business, even though they don’t know them from Jack. You guys are so made of happy! And so are the employees and their families!

Imagine Being Made of Happy

Monday, December 29th, 2008

Imagine, by John Lennon, almost always brings me to the brink of tears, but fills me with a sense of hope as well. John, your memory will always be made of happy for me. Thanks for making my teen years better than they could have been. Your music still changes people.

Cute Things Falling Asleep Are Made of Happy

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

OMG. OMG, I tell you. I cannot believe that there is a blog called… wait for it… Cute Things Falling Asleep.

Truly, this is a wonderful world.

This little pup was featured as “Sleepy Puppy 13” with a cute rating of 4 and a sleepy rating of 4.

Why must this puppy put his head on the step/ledge/shelf/whatever that is?? Why? Is it because he knows it’s more adorable this way? Can I cuddle him already?

B-Boying Fingers Are Made of B-Happy

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

You don’t know this yet, since this is my first time mentioning this on my blog, but I LOVE b-boying/breakdancing. I mean, I can’t do it, but I love watching it. Heck, I love dancing in general.

This breakdancing little hand was just so charming that it put a big old grin on my face.

I hope you enjoy it too! Where did he get those tiny shoes to fit over his fingers? Totally made of happy, yo. *crosses arms*
