Zip, zip zippy....

Zap zap zappy...
H-a-p-p-y, we're happy!*

Stole this from Dzer, who makes an exellent point about the nature of happiness.

So here, in no particular order, are some of the little things that make me happy...


The sound of a cocktail shaker

Hearing a friend laugh

Unintentionally hearing a favorite song... especially when I'm stressed out at work, and go out into the hallway, and our sister station is playing something I love

Freshly-laundered sheets

A smile from a cute, random guy

The second kiss

Holding hands

Snow, particularly if I get to see it fall

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert

A great meal

My mom's annual day-before-my-birthday phone message, describing how she was on her hands and knees, scrubbing the kitchen floor in 102 degree heat the day before I was born

Amusement parks


Pulling my Entertainment Weekly out of my mailbox on Fridays

Going to bed without setting my alarm

Browsing endlessly in a good bookstore, especially this one


Wine country in the spring. Or the fall. Hell, winter's nice long as there's no flooding

The ocean

What about you? What makes you happy?

*this one's for you, Gup!
