Little things that make you happy

Since i am feeling a little blue right now....

I would like to make myself happy by starting this post, and possibly make others a little bit happy too.
The rules:
1. You are allowed to post one thing that you experienced that made you smile, jump for joy, etc.
2. You are allowed to post again as long as there is someone who posted above you.

Now i'd start.

It is great to get 2 stuffed toys from your first try at a ufo catcher.

Years ago I remember reading my issues of EGM and seeing the Parodius games in them, and I told myself one day I'd like to own the entire series.

Flash forward a decade to 15 years later, lo and behold, I do.  :D

The Seahawks predictably losing and giving me an opportunity to make my own Slowpoke meme:

Your mom has had more floppies put in her than a Commodore 64!

Being able to go to bed while it's still dark out & waking up at a reasonable hour. That's becoming increasingly hard for some reason...
Damn. It's as if your life was geared to prevent you from enjoying it. And I'm sure it's not fun either.

Ironic that Slowpoke was brought up.



I woke up to this on Tumblr and I can't keep a straight face.

A hot cup of tea, usually black but sometimes herbal or green on a cool day.

Seeing my team socialize outside of work without my intervention. Brings tears to this CEO's eyes.

There is a certain place in my hometown, which always makes me happy. It's not far way from the sea - you can't see it, but you hear it. Long trees, the big road, no people and strangely no animals too (it's deep in the forest, so people rarely go this far - that's why it's so calm there). I usually buy myself one or two bottles of white wine, call a friend and when our quest to the calmest place of the world begins..
