Subject: What Makes You Happy...

Written By: Badfinger-fan on 02/01/08 at 2:35 am

so what are some of the things that make you happy? sometimes for me, it doesn't take much to make me happy.  8)

...When my daughter Julie wants to talk and share what's going on in her life with me.  it doesn't happen too often, but when she opens up, I'm all ears and attentive and loving it.

...hot fudge sundaes

...when I hear people complimenting my skills and abilities at playing softball

Emergency meeting, going in for it, I hope you get paid for it. More money = makes you happy?

When Vaughn is well behaved (which isn't too often, lately)

When people tell me the truth (that doesn't happen to often either)

When I talk for hours on the phone, with someone who can laugh with me

When I go thrift shopping and find lots of good deals

When I am thinking about the past

Let me guess, it is a space alien who communicates though the light bulb on the lamp by your bed-but only if the moon is in the first quarter phase and if there is a rerun on Bridget Loves Bernie on t.v.


Did I get it right? Huh? Huh? Did I?  ;) :D :D :D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Beer.  In the words of Ben Franklin, it is the proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

Lyrics.  After weeks, months (and sometimes years) of listening to a track, you're randomly in the sort of mood that lends itself to hearing a confusing line in precisely the right way, and you finally know what that word really was.  (See "Beer".)

Try our political section. MOST people are reasonable-whether they agree with your position or not. We have had a few unreasonable people and they were banned.

I just might take a peek and see what it's about and if any 'zealots' are around. It's ok to be zealous about something as long as you don't shove it in somebody's face.  :)
