Random Pleasures

98% | 5

(in no particular order)

-Driving a car with all your best friends, windows down, blaring your favorite songs and singing to them in unison.

-Having deep thoughts while staring out a window or airplane during a long ride, then snapping back to reality and realizing how wonderful that was and trying to go back to it because thinking is fun.

-Going to bed with your phone next to you after a long night of being sad b/c of someone (say, a boyfriend who's been ignoring you). Then getting a phone call in the middle of the night from him first apoligizing for calling so late then him telling you how much he loves you and asking what you had been dreaming about. Hey you might loose some sleep, but isn't that better than waking up grumpy in the morning, still thinking about why he hasn't called?

-The first and last days of school.

-Going to an amusement park with your girl/boyfriend or a large group of friends.

-Finding something you lost a long time ago or money in your pockets.

I will think of more and continue this. Anybody have more ideas you may post them here.

Id like to add a few things to your very accurate list :)

- Sitting with a tub of your favorite ice cream on the couch sharing a blanket with your significant other, cuddling and watching a really good movie

- getting free money/food/things/etc

- being able to say "i am paid excessive amounts of money to do what i love to do"

- knowing that someone you like likes you back

- sitting in front of your computer with a sobe and a great sandwich writing about whats great about life

^^;; just thought id get my thoughts in.

Most excellent list items except for the fact that they make me sad, but mainly because (especially during the summer), I'm a very lonely person. That, and I don't get paid jack squat for anything :P

Well, you're not alone in any of these areas. :-p I'm not going to worry about it this summer, just do whatever the hell I feel like doing (that doesn't require cash)... probably a lot of NAO...

Getting up early, only to realize you forgot about a holiday.

Getting up early, only to realize you forgot about a holiday.

How is that a pleasure? If you've already gotten up, that usually means you've already moved around a lot and would probobly have a harder time getting back to sleep.

Maybe you meant to say "waking up". In that case, I agree with you-it would be a pleasure to hear your alarm clock, realize it's a holday, shut it off, roll around in your bed for a sec and fall easily to sleep again.

I think what he's saying is, you get up so damn early thinking about how it sucks to have to do work, then all of a sudden you realize you have the whole day to yourself. You slip on a bathrobe, get a cup of tea and a magasine, plop yourself in a nice big chair and let the morning ooze by. Yeah... sweet...

On the waking up thread: waking up on Christmas morning, and fading randomly between consciousness and the un-

Finding a lost CD and, after listening to it, remembering how much you loved it

Knowing that, far away though my friend Eri-chan is in Sapporo, she's invariably thinking about me at least at the subconscious level right now.
