I'm doing a list of 100 Things That Make Me Happy. Of course, at the rate I've been doing these it'll take me forever. But I'm killing two birds with one stone, because my 100 things can fall under "H" for happy. If you'd like to play catch-up, click here. So, in no particular order, I continue!
#21. Being able to load hay on the feed truck. K's brother can actually lift said bales, and K or Papa D often times finish loading with the tractor. But today, Papa D and myself did it. The bales are still a bit heavy, but I was able to stack them. Last fall I did it a few times when our tractor was in the shop. It's actually quite exhilarating to stack those hay bales. Especially when those bales start tipping 100 pounds.
#22. Going to the movies. I know it costs a small fortune to go these days, but as long as the movie is good, it's always worth it. It also helps when you have a good audience that actually laughs (aka has a good sense of humor), or claps when something happens (like in Titanic when Kate spits in abusive guy's face or when someone shouts "DUH!" at the end of HP5 when the Minister of Magic says, "He's back!" and the audience laughs). Sometimes it's the audience buzz that makes a great movie even better.
#23. Sticking with the movie theme, I love when a movie on DVD has great special features. I love a good gag reel that's genuinely funny, good "making of" featurettes because I'm a dork and I like to know how they made movie magic. There's no excuse for any DVD to be released without any special features (I'm looking at you, makers of of Australia). I'm looking for something akin to this:
#24. The Draw Something App. I finally got it to download after several attempts. I only have two "games" going at the moment, but this stuff his hilarious. I'm like the world's worst drawer. Seriously, I drew a reindeer and it was a stick figure reindeer with antlers and a big nose . . . I figured that might help someone guess . . . Yeah. I suck.
#25. Watching Ghost Hunters or Ghost Hunters International. It's a guilty pleasure of mine. Sometimes they catch some really cool stuff. And I laugh so hard when the ghost hunters get all scared and scream when bats chase them.
