All I want now is happiness for you and me


What makes you happy?

Many things can make me happy. Accomplishing a long, difficult task that challenges me, hot sand sticking between my wet toes, playing music or having someone I care about tell me that they were thinking of me....just to name a few.

And saying the word schnitzel.

Extra credit: Elliot Smith- Happiness. His sound always reminds me of the Monkees for some reason. Isn't he dead?

Well, that was quick. Yes, Elliot Smith is dead. :(

Since I'm writing, I'll list some of the things that make me happy:

1. Music
2. Being outdoors surrounded by nature.
3. Sour Patch Kids
4. Being in love
5. Playing with a toddler
6. Napping next to an open window on a cool crisp autumn afternoon
7. Hugs
8. Seeing an old friend
9. Hallmark commercials (I know, I know, I can't help it!)
10. Walking in freshly fallen snow under a moonlight sky
11. Oatmeal raisin cookies
12. Kindness, both given and received
13. An unexpected email from an old friend
14. Giving blood
15. Laughing
16. Singing
17. Driving on a gorgeous day on winding roads along the shoreline where I live.
18. Feeling loved
19. My cats
20. My life

A giggle from my son.
A smile from my wife.
Accomplishment at work.
A beer and a laugh with good friends.
Sleeping in.

Thanks to Graz for getting the quote - that year's supply of Ring Dings (estimated at 2) is well-earned!

where to start...

my neices and nephews
my kitties
my adopted puppies
my friends and family
my handsome
the smell of cigars
mint chocolate chip ice cream
seems so simple - but having enough money to pay my bills every month
the smell of a new car
the smell of spring and summer
the smell of fresh cut grass
the smell of the first fall fire
girls nights

What are Ring Dings??

What makes me happy:
- being home alone!
- puppies!
- kitties!
- books!
- cleanliness!
- doing things right!
- but above all: legitimately happy people! (contagious!)

Ahem, the answer is...Rush--Freewill.

I WAS the biggest Rush fan around in highschool. and i rock at memorizing lyrics to songs that mean something to me.

actually as soon as i saw the title i sang it to myself in my head.

I WANT my ring dings. What are they?

okay, so having read all the comments i realize that i didn't actually answer your question, just the extra credit at the bottom. as much as Rush make me happy in their own right, they're not the only thing.

you know what makes me truly happy--peace, health and unconditional love from my kitties, mom and michael.

being independently wealthy would help but i'll find happiness without that for now.
