I like the Plain and Simple things.

This might be a little strange, but have you ever looked at things through a water bottle(the ones with ridges make it more interesting)? Or maybe when underwater in a pool, opened your eyes and looked up through the water at the sky? It is kinda cool. I also am fascinated by the way light comes through the trees and makes little circles all over the wall (or whatever other surface it might be casting dancing shadows/light upon). Anyway, this got me thinking of all the simple things that make me happy:
  • Gilmore Girls reruns right after work
  • Tart frozen yogurt
  • pens that click
  • night swimming (I think I need to do that tonight)
  • mix CDs from dear friends
  • singing loudly and dancing in my car
  • big earrings
  • reading by the pool
  • surprisingly shopping(well, if I find 4 cute shirts in one trip)
  • currently Mates of State's song "So Many Ways" is the greatest song ever written.
  • The smell of rain (Vegas has been wanting to rain all week)
  • cream cheese on triscuts
  • google talk/chat
  • riding down the stairs on an air matress
  • skinny dipping
  • emails from good friends
  • saying random things to Tess
  • comments on my blog(nudge-nudge wink-wink)
  • popcorn
  • Fresh n' Easy
  • Finding new blogs to read at work
  • long showers
  • painting (I have lots of ideas in my head for paintings so it is time to start doing that again)
Ok now it is your turn. What are some simple things that make you happy? They can be random, because we all know some of mine are.

P.S. I don't like that my bullet points are flowers on this blog template, but I don't know how to change it.

Lately singing this at the top of my lungs makes me feel better:

"I am likely to miss the main event if I stop to cry or complain again. So I will keep a deliberate pace, let the damned breeze dry my face."
Thanks Fiona. I think I will name my first born daughter after you.

Some People Choose Delusion Over Despair

Can you be in love with a fictional character? Oh, because I think I am. Jack Shephard is his name. Do you guys know him?

"At last, my love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song
Oh, yeah, at last
The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clovers
The night I looked at you
I found a dream that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to rest my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known
Oh, yeah when you smile, you smile
Oh, and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine
At last "
