Subject:Ten of Life's Simple Pleasures (in random order)
Time:09:05 am
Current Mood:okayokay
1. Listening to George Harrison's guitar solos.
2. Writing in pink and purple and sky blue ink.
3. Food - it doesn't matter if I'm eating it, looking at it, reading about it, or talking about it, so long as it's food.
4. Taking a shower in the afternoon.
5. Waking up early on a Saturday morning and discovering that you don't need to get out of bed.
6. A cute flirty skirt.
7. Cute boys. ^_^
8. A conversation with a good friend.
9. Writing like the words are just flowing out of your fingers.
10. Glitter nail polish...actually, almost anything with glitter in it. :D

And I tag anyone who needs or wants to think about ten simple things that make them happy. :)

Glad you liked that item in my list :) I do love listening to his solos. I think they said a lot about the kind of person and artist he was.

In the same format:

1. Reading my friend Tamara's words of advice. Her emails have made me both smile and cry.
2. Drinking strong coffee and reading a book with nothing on my plate but a few months of summer vacation.
3. Slipping off my winter sweater to reveal the models-would-kill-for waistline I've worked so hard to achieve.
4. Before drifting off to sleep, thinking pleasant little thoughts about my fabricated Prince Charming: an idealized take on an old boyfriend.
5. Physical touch: hand massages, getting my hair washed, and neck and small of the back stroking are all high up there.
6. Playing a new favorite song on repeat and milking it for all its worth -- all the while lip-synching and dancing to it in ridiculous abandon. ("The laaast tiiiime you fall on meeeee...!")
7. Curling up with my teddy bear when he's cool and fluffy.
8. Flipping through the food advertisements (especially the meat pictures) when I'm eating alone.
9. Wearing a brand-new item of clothing for the first time. (I save my new underwear for occasions where I think I'll need a little happiness boost.)
10. That first night of beautiful sleep after you've gotten something stressful and/or thought-consuming out of the way.

What a great community - I can't tell you how often I need a little bit of positive thinking injected into my day. To celebrate, here is my list (again, in random order):

1. Walking to work rather than having to get the Tube or the bus
2. Bluebells. I love bluebells and they will be in season soon :)
3. A glass of red wine after a long, hard day
4. Curling up on the sofa with a good book
5. Unexpected calls from friends
6. Singing. In the shower, on the stage, doesn't really matter ...
7. Wearing something I have made myself
8. Stroking cats
9. Window shopping
10. Hugs
