Pretty girls carrying cellos on their backs.  *melts*

Pretty girls that sing.  *melts*

Because it has to be said:  Pretty girls!  *melts*

Pretty girls playing cellos.

Also Bliss Body Butter in lemon & sage. It smells like fresh.

No one has said orgasms yet? I -know- I'm not the only sex-obsessed person that plays ARM.

Even better: Afternoon sex, then a nap.

Kissing that spot between the temple and the cheekbone repeatedly...and nibbling it...on my husband or my kids.

My daughter's delight at her new bright aqua-blue swimsuit with the ballet-style skirt, and her pride at the fact that it's "five year old size!"

My younger son showing me his new Lego spaceship creation before I go to work, and demonstrating how it flies in hyperspace, and how it adjusts for a planetary landing.

My older son going to a Superbowl party at the home of the girl he's crushed on for two years, then coming back and telling me what all the sixth-grade girls said about "who likes who."

Making pocket money by giving my mom voice lessons at her request, and watching her enjoyment and excitement in the singing. Coaxing her into the harmony and supporting her learning.

Sleeping in late. Staying up REALLY late.

Coffee, because it just can't be mentioned enough :)
I'm gonna go all Gimfalisette on you guys and lay down some numbers.

My family.

Having a safe place to sleep at night.

Being able to provide 100% for myself and still have a little extra left over.

Coffee and Cigarettes (no, not that black and white movie with Bull Murray and Wu-Tang clan in it- but you should see it anyway.)
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

That's what I'm thankful for.
Arm is evil.  And I love it.  It's like the softest, cuddliest, happy smelling teddy bear in the world, except it is stuffed with meth needles that inject you everytime

Well, yes. With intonation.  *melts*


Bah, humbug.  You married (and, I suppose, Alternatively Mated) people disgust me.  <--- sour grapes
The sword is sharp, the spear is long,
The arrow swift, the Gate is strong.
The heart is bold that looks on gold;
The dwarves no more shall suffer wrong.

Gimf, just intonation is better than orgasms, I shit you not.

mundane sex, mundane booze and mundane guillotines.
“When I was a fighting man, the kettle-drums they beat;
The people scattered gold-dust before my horse’s feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.”

I like to sniff soap boxes. Especially Lever 2000.
Good moisturizing hand soap, as well... :)

Laughing until my face hurts.

Buying a really cute new hat.

Trying out a new restaurant and discovering that I really, really like it.
Out of all those kinds of people, you got a face with a view
I'm just an animal looking for a home
Share the same space for a minute or two

Hanging out with a small number (<10) of good friends and just fucking around. Playing Rock Band, COD4, fucking around in Wal-Mart, breaking into abandoned factories, shooting things, burning things... just... doing nothing.

The smell of girl.

Probably my favorite feeling of all time? Making other people laugh. There's just something beautiful and awesome about laughter - true, unadulterated, raw laughter, the kind that makes it hard to breathe and hurts your cheeks. I love seeing people laugh, and hearing it. In fact, I think "pretty laugh" ranks higher on my list of qualities in a potential mate than "pretty."

True.

Um...the smell of a new wallet? Just a little thing I love, that new leather smell.

Taking that first refreshing gulp of a cold drink after a long day of hard work outside.

When my soul mate tells me he loves me.
the endless comfortable sleep that can be achieved with NyQuil.
Meeting new awesome people
Man.. who can beat cold sheets? That's like the best.
The smell of cedar chest that clings to my grandma's bed sheets
My first boyfriend that I 'loved' always wore Arrid X Dry deodorant and that smell still fucks with me.
When my daughter snuggles up to sleep with me, despite the fear of being peed on.
You know you've raised a nerd when your five year old answers the question "Do you know what gymnastics are?" with "Dungeons and Dragons?"

It's never too late to live happily ever after.

Living in an area so remote that I can walk outside and piss off my front porch unflinchingly.  Technically, I can still do this, but unfortunately
I live in a slightly more civilized area now, one block away from a police station, and I and regret the loss of such a luxury.  Oh, the
simple things we take for granted...

When I successfully teach someone something and they get that CHA-CHING look on their face.  the novelty hasn't worn off yet.

Dude, nutri-grain bars and diet coke.

Red heads.  rawrrrrr   ;D

The deliciously distinct smell of burning delectable plant matter.

Times when my motley crew of comrades and associates gather round for righteous debauchery.

Hearing/running into people from your past.  Not all the time, but a lot of the time I appreciate this.

Bic lighters.  The competition pales in comparison.

And, last but not least, those special days I set aside to lather myself with oil and do push-ups in front of the mirror for hours
and hours and hours.  With one hand, so I can still play Arm.

This man has the coke pinky nail of all coke pinky nails.  Nough said.
Karma police, arrest this man...
