Cute kitty cuddles and the coolest Halloween nail designs

Good Things Utah
  • On the second hour of GTU this morning – We take a look at the first night of Dancing With The Stars on ABC, and while it’s fun to see the celebrities and pros – kids dancing is one of the best, purest things on the planet, no matter what their skill level! But when a tiny little human has actual moves, the cuteness factor shoots way up. That’s why a video of 3-year-old Liang Liang dancing alongside a group of uniformed, choreographed dancers has gone viral. It’s not the first time we’ve seen this little fella—videos of him dancing first went viral in 2019—but it’s definitely worth another round of virality for those who missed him the first time. Three years old! His mother has said that they noticed his rhythmic talents early on, when he would rock back and forth to the music sitting on the floor at six months or standing and holding onto the wall at nine months. You just have to see this video!
  • Plus, we’ve all learned the importance of being a little more understanding during the pandemic, and one manager is hitting the nail on the head about being flexible at work in a LinkedIn post that has gone viral. And it’s resonating with working moms, big time. Raise your hand if you’re a woman and you’ve found yourself apologizing to your colleagues and supervisors about having to duck out of work or call off because your kids are sick. How about going into immense detail to “justify” why you need to take time off for your family? Yep, I see you’ve all got your hands raised! Though employees, women in particular, have basically been conditioned to do these things, this LinkedIn post basically gives us the validation that it’s OK to not be a machine—because life happens. Megan Witherspoon, the Vice President of Communications at Altria, wrote about flexible working hours from a manager’s perspective and it quickly went viral.
  • And what’s in a name? Sherri Suzanne, founder of My Name for Life, a professional baby name consulting service, believes we name for two reasons. The first is identification and differentiation. The second is to create familiarity and intimacy. “Names are a special part of language,” she says. “Anthropologists have not identified a society that does not use names in some form.” To read more on why Utahns are so creative with our names click here:
  • Finally, a two-year-old’s insistence that she and her family’s pet cat be given some peace and quiet for a nap was captured on camera by her mother. Erin Merryn of Elgin, Illinois, shared footage of the adorable moment to YouTube, and told Storyful that her daughter, Claire, and pet cat Carrot are “best friends.” This is so cute you will grit your teeth!
  • At the end of the show – These are so cute! Halloween might just be one night of the year, but that doesn’t mean your themed manicure has to be. Whether you like to go all out with your costume with a coordinating nail-art look to match, or you like to keep it fairly low-key and let your digits do all the work, we’ve found some of the best Halloween nail designs you can wear for All Hallow’s Eve and beyond. Hope you join us for these Hot Topics and more on a Tuesday edition of GTU Hour 2.
