Indisputably Good Things. (Cheese is an indisputably good thing.)

(In no particular order)

*Taking a walk in a park you've never been to on a nice day. Especially if said park includes a pond.

*Baking something that actually works out and sharing it with people who are subsequently impressed.

*Being so "in the zone" whilst creating something (be it a play, a drawing, an essay or a mix tape) that you forget to eat.

*Whatever your friend cooked you for dinner (or lunch).

*Whatever your flatmate cooked you for dinner (or lunch).

*When a person in service (at a restaurant or shop) likes you so much they give you a discount or freebie. (However small.)

*Dancing alone in your room in a ridiculous manner.

*Photos of your friends' baby and/or wedding.

*Cold and delicious fruit juice.

*Having no plans, then running into someone you like very much by chance and spending the day with them.

*Getting excited about your friends' successes and general awesomeness/excellence.

*Improvised competitive party games that seem to come out of nowhere. (Best recent improvised party game - for the era of Facebook and the Digital Photo - Who can take the best band photo. Not only does everyone get to posture as a band member, everyone gets a turn of posturing as the super conceptual photographer!)

*Drinking wine whilst eating excellent cheese (not at a party - do this at a dinner or by yourself. If by yourself, limit it to one glass of wine, and one type of cheese.)


*Dreams where you are flying.

*Being introduced to new music in a non-pressurized fashion - this is where the beauty of the mix tape/ cd comes to the fore.

*Compliments on your work from someone who did not know you were responsible for the work. (AKA - "I liked that play, I can't remember who wrote it. " SO super sweet.)

*Free and unexpected gifts in the mail - best when they consist of a trinket, a new book, a new cd or a hilarious photograph of your friend.

*Record players playing something swoony and old timey.

*Fresh flowers.


*Good art, music or writing made by your friends and people you have met.

*Long fluid Car rides with good music (vital) and good scenery (Not as vital.)

*Long and informative Emails (Facebook does not count) from estranged friends.

*Funny postcards sent unexpectedly.

*Nerding out over any one of the following movies: Wayne's World, The Big Lebowski, Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Clueless, Rushmore, Annie Hall, Kindergarten Cop.

*Any one of the following movies: Wayne's World, The Big Lebowski, Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Clueless, Rushmore, Annie Hall (and less fun to nerd out about but very wonderful to watch) anything by Truffaut but especially Jules and Jim, Manhattan, Ratatouille, Beauty and the Beast, Swimming to Cambodia, Harold and Maude, Being There, The Jerk, anything by Wong Kar Wai but especially "Happy Together" and not necessarily always Kindergarten Cop.

*Old Episodes of The Simpsons and Seinfeld.

*Giving someone a present you bought them whilst on vacation.

*The Perfect Temperature Shower.



*Cuddling. (Aw...)

*Memory. (Also a bad thing.)

*The perfect dive.

*The sky.
