Default Irrational things that delight you!

They don't have to be irrational, I just thought it'd be nice to have a companion thread to the annoyance one.

Share lovely things that make you smile or squeal or giggle or just give you a warm fuzzy glow.


Knitting while my cat snores on my lap.

Being kissed on the forehead.

The glugluglugluglug of pouring the first glass from a bottle of wine.

Waking up to the smell of brewing coffee.

Bunnies! Everything to do with them makes me a big ball of goo.

Finding pop songs that annoy me and changing the lyrics to be about nice things.

Food shaped like animals

Stuff shaped like TARDISes

Looking up a word I didn't know in the dictionary

Libraries

Walking in the middle of nowhere and being able to hear silence.

The first cup of Tea of the day

My cat lying on her back wanting belly rubs

Teddy bears (and other assorted stuffed toys).


That's a starter of 10.

The Mutant Enemy 'Grrrrrrr! Aaaargh!' springs to mind. Always makes me chuckle.

Being so ill that I get to laze around all day, guilt-free -- totally worth the displeasure!

Hmm pretty sure this list might make me seem slightly odd...

My cat
Climbing into my car after work/ uni. Sticking my ipod on and knowing for the next 30-40 minutes I can have some time to myself when I shouldn't be doing a million other things. (Well other than driving of course!)
My Charmed/ Gilmore Girls DVDs (what can I say I love crappy TV shows!)
Pyjamas
Baking
Fabric shops
And finally finding out that McBusted and the Backstreet Boys are going to be performing locally. Teenage me squealed in delight (ten year old me was even going to marry Nick Carter. Having said that 24 year old me probably wouldn't object :P)

Can't find it now but there used to be a website giving his CV, other credits and his name Gordon Abrams.

Spending an entire morning reading a good book.

The way babies just look at you.

That shade of red when the sunsets.

Tesco lemonade, the really really cheap stuff which I think tastes better than the expensive stuff.

Eva green in a movie.

Rosslynns smile.

Being in an empty house by yourself and everybody else has gone out and the door is locked

When a song you haven't heard in years comes on the radio.

when you notice everyone from Teenage Scottish women to German Mormons is singing Sitting on the Dock of the Bay.

GIFS!

Especially these. And especially the Dean ducklings. I kept thinking of them yesterday at random moments and smiling. http://downtown1994.tumblr.com/post/...mlittlefairies

Also, lego. And that new comic/book smell. Re-reading stories from my childhood. The sound of tea being stirred.

Finishing work, popping in my earbuds and listening to an 80s playlist that takes me back to simpler times!
