April Blog Challenge: H is for Happy (aka 100 Things That Make Me Happy, Part 5)

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.

  1. Hahaha, Draw Something makes me laugh every day because I am so rubbish at it! Glad I am not the only one who struggles to draw a good picture!

    1. I think there are times I sit there for half an hour trying to figure out how to draw the simplest thing. I can see it in my head, but I can't put it on the screen. lol There's a reason I'm not a famous artist! lol

    1. Someone mentioned it to me awhile ago, but I didn't really know what it was. Until I watched my mom play. Too freaking funny!

  3. Things that make me happy? Great idea. I love movies, too. And special features on DVDs. Plus, tacos, horses, hats, office supplies, Edgar Degas and Stephen King. Just to name a few.

  6. Oh, I love going to the movies and I also love a good gag reel on a DVD. I haven't played "Draw Something" yet because, until recently, I didn't have a phone that would support it. I'm looking forward to giving it a go though.

    1. You'll like Draw Something, especially if you're as bad of a drawer as the rest of us! lol

  7. Getting a good cinematic audience is very rare! Usually all I get are talking kids!

    1. What's worse is when you sit next to an old couple and one of them is practically deaf so the spouse has to keep repeating the movie. lol

  8. What a lovely idea to post about things that make you happy. I'd add fresh air, blustery days by the sea, snuggly dogs, and my gently ticking clock on the mantlepiece.
