Little things that give you joy.

Sometimes it's the little things in life that make me happy. Little stuff that I usually take for granted. Things like:

Hearing the beginning of a U2 song right as I get in the car
Water pressure
Soft pretzels with cheese dip
Ordering a medium rare steak and having it come medium rare
New battaries for the remote
Being full but not stuffed
Getting weird looks from wearing a Jar Jar Binks T-shirt
Clean socks
20 oz. bottles of Cherry Coke for only $.83
When the kickass "limited time only" sandwich takes a permanant spot on the menu
Catching a Simpsons rerun that I haven't seen
Sculpting something and getting it right the first time
When people take a cue and follow suit without me having to come out and say anything
The smell of a newly opened vintage Star Wars action figure

A nice warm turf fire for extra warmth when its frezing outside

The smell of new books

Being healthy- Health is Wealth.

Putting on clothes just out from the tumble dryer

Having a good family

Just A Few For Now...

~when I walk into my dark bedroom and turn on the light, and my hamster Benny just freezes and seems nervous like I caught him doing something wrong *lol* That makes me smile and go "Awwwwwww" every single time.

~gettin' phone calls from friends...especially the goofy and/or drunken ones

~when I'm sittin' at the computer, and I look down to my side and see one of my kitties watchin' me

sleeping late
my morning cup of tea
a hug or kiss from one of my sons
an unexpected email from a special friend
seeing my grandma
memories of my grandpa and my dad
when my size 8 jeans fit
turning on the TV just as the Electrical Storm video starts
spending time with my sister
my God-daughter's silly jokes
holding a baby
looking at old pictures
getting a package in the mail
the blue sky in the desert
Bono's voice
my house when all 4 of my kids are in it
my house when I'm home alone

I have more.

The smell of Sharpies
Having both my parents alive and married to each other
Hats
The mental image of a baby penguin wearing a penguin backpack
Having everyone greet me at the bookstore (like Norm on Cheers)
My cats
My memories of Frank
Seeing the lights on at my apartment when I pull in, because that means my wife is there
Catching the cowball
Elephants
Gir
The realization that high and mighty, pretentious, self-righteous, important people have to wipe their bums, too
Finding the last one of whatever I'm looking for
When people enjoy my cooking
Bubble wrap
Wah-chicka music
Good stop-motion
Driving home and getting all the green lights
Beer
Movies in widescreen format
My parents' house at Christmas time
The word syzygy
Horribly inaccurate fortune cookies

Looking at pictures of Larry
Getting a satisfying meal from the cafeteria
Getting mail from my family
Having a message on my door when I get home
Knowing an answer that snotty bitch doesn't know
Finding a picture that brings back great memories
Making everything into a quote from a song

*singing and dancing in my car and getting strange looks from other drivers
*having uncontrollable laughing fits
*talking on the phone with a friend I haven't talked to in ages
*how my dog is always happy to see me
*painting my finger and toenails
*Thanksgiving dinner
*curling up on the couch with a blanket and a warm drink
