Yesterday was September 21st. More importantly, last night was the 21st night of September. So you know what that means; I have not been able to get my most favorite song in the world out of my head these last couple of days! Oh, you know what song I mean... September, by Earth, Wind & Fire! In celebration of my favorite song, I (literally) drew an Earth, wind and fire hug of the day! I also read a really interested article about the back story of the song and why the song sustains so well in movies, media, and most importantly, wedding celebrations (such as my own, where it was the unofficial first dance song for my husband and me!). So Ba de ya, here is your Hug O' The Day!

If you were one of the lucky people in LA over the weekend who got to see The Simpsons Take the Hollywood Bowl, then congrats, you lucky dog! Those of us who couldn't make it are insanely jealous!!
Since my hubby and I couldn't swing it into our schedules, he requested a Simpsons hug. Specifically, Sideshow Bob (complete with knife). Happy Sideshow Bob hug, everyone! This is one hug that definitely won't backstab you...it'll do it while you're looking! =0P

I first became a Yankees fan in the summer of 1993. I was 7, going on 8. Don Mattingly was my favorite player. The Yankees did not make the playoffs, but I fell in love with the Bronx Bombers in Pinstripes. A couple of seasons later, Derek Jeter joined my beloved Yanks. So I only had 2 seasons before Jeter led the Yankees dynasty to win 5 World Series. 5! As any sports fan knows, getting to see your beloved team win one championship is a dream come true. But I, a fourth-generation Yankees fan, got to see my favorite team in pinstripes win 5 times. I barely even remember a time that that Yankees were without Jeter. And after this season, there will not be another time that I will get to see him play for them.
Yesterday was Derek Jeter Day at Yankee Stadium. When this season ends, we're all going to need a big hug to fill the void of the most respected player in baseball (and arguably all of sports). Jeter, our captain, we're going to miss you! <3

If you're not watching ABC's The Quest, then you are missing out on some FUN television. I first heard about it from my husband, whose friend Bonnie Gordon happened to be on it. But I first fell in love with the show when I saw the promo for it during Comic-Con at the ABC booth. It's "Lord of the Rings" meets "the Amazing Race" and is just fantastic Reality TV unlike anything I've seen before. Not only is there an ongoing storyline (The Quest to save the land of Everealm from the evil Verlox), but it really is a feel-good competitive show. The point of the contestants is to be the One True Hero, and a hero must know how to work well with others. It's been fun to watch contestants grow and work together, and really decide who is eliminated based on who is qualified to help reach the final goal of saving Everealm (not simply eliminate those who threaten one's chances of winning it all).
Since Bonnie is truly the contestant with the biggest heart on the show, today's Hug O' The Day is for her. Good luck, Bonnie! We're rooting for you!

"O-o-h, Child"... I'm "Hooked on a Feeling" that if you want to "Come and Get Your..." Hug O' The Day today, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" to stop you!
If you are one of the many, many, MANY people who "Fooled Around and Fell in Love" with Guardians of the Galaxy this summer (like me, in case you couldn't tell), then there's nothing that you'd want but to "Go All the Way" and get a big ol' group hug from our new favorite rascally heroes. Come on and "Escape" with us and our "Space Invaders...in a Moonage Daydream" for a few glorious seconds of spaced-out hugging-ness.
And if you think that this hug is da "Cherry Bomb", feel free to share it with others and to check out our other hugs on this site. Please feel free to return for more, because "I Want You Back" to check out, comment and suggest future hugs for me to draw! ^_^
And also in case you can't tell, "I'm Not in Love" with *just* the movie. I'm slightly (read: COMPLETELY) obsessed with its soundtrack! If you are asking yourself if I referenced every single Oldies song in its soundtrack in this post, then yes, I did. Well, except for "Spirit in the Sky", which I did just now, so there. =0P
