Slices of happiness

Here's a spontaneously created list of few things that brought me happiness this morning: Sound of a coffee maker. A surprise package from Norway. Airguitar. Ticket to Suzanne Vega's concert. Getting finished with full English draft of my first book. Creating a gift. Engrish. Shamanistic workshop I'm creating for an international school's camp. Sunflowers. X-ray photo of my skull. Lihat Puntarissa 10/16-cartoon.

What would your spontaneous list be like?

My list (parental advisory: v/ spontaneous): Only 4 days untill Lordi rocks the socks off from grandparents all around europe, new coffee mug w/ garfield on it, I have a sense that something remarkable will happen soon, I'm alive, I think mine is bigger than yours

Dear anonymous,

thanks for a smile :)

I think Lardi is utterly boring when it comes to music and the rest they have to offer but I also think it is interesting that a group like that is going to be playing at ESC.

I would prefer seeing Dead Kennedys playing "Macho insecurity" instead of Lardi there, though :-)

Less happy thoughts and more black magic to this blog!

Dear anonymous,

can you tell what separates happy thoughts from black magic? :-)

If you want angst with black magic imagery some black metal forum would do better than my generally quite happy blog :-)

The prince of darkness that I know laughs, smiles, and enjoys existence :-)

Dear anonymous,

now we are talking, Cartman has brought me almost as many slices of happiness as that big boned guy has enjoyed slices of an apple pie :-)

I didn't add my list the first time I read this post and have regretted that decision ever since.. so I'll do it now (no preparations made, though):

Laibach's version of 'The Final Countdown', particle acceleration, sleeping, women, witty quotes, dogs, free speech, adding my list after all, privacy, cheese, hobbits and Hunter S. Thompson.

Laibach's version of the song is so much better than the original one in my books, but I think your karaoke version of it was even better! :-)

I'm with you on the 'happy thoughts'. For me, 'Dark side' doesn't mean miserable and gloomy. It's that 'lust for life' and 'pride of life'.

I like your list. For me, the greatest spontaneous fun is when I decide to have a try with a blank piece of paper and get something I like. Creating art is what's fun for me. Oh yeah, and pie. Apple is good, but blueberry is even better!
