#36. Fits of serious laughter. I'm talking pee-your-pants laughter. Good, honest laughter that is highly contagious to others even if they have no idea why your having a spaz attack. (Besides the obvious fact that you can't breathe because you're laughing so damn hard). Laughter is one of the best sounds on earth.
#37. Country life. Sticksville is 3 hours from anything - in any given direction. The closest thing to a chain store is the pharmacy and a couple sandwich shops. Life isn't easy in a place where agriculture is the main source of income, but I enjoy living here much more than in a city.
#38. My job variety. I may complain about my job(s) or the people I deal with in them, but overall, I enjoy all of it. Even people who enjoy their jobs have complaints and bad days, and that just makes you appreciate the good days and nice people that much more.
#39. Reading. Now, I know I mentioned this in an earlier post, but really, it's something I truly enjoy. I find myself forgetting the TV in the evenings in favor reading. Besides, there's never anything on TV, and anymore the only time the TV is on is when I'm watching a movie from Netflix. So, from about 4 or 5pm (depending on the day) until I turn out my bedroom light, you can find me with a book in hand. I admit I take liberties on Sundays more often than not to spend my day reading after house cleaning and during laundry. Recently I've been reading the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. I seriously can't get enough of them; I love the family because they are so ridiculous and funny. And that Grandma Mazur is a freaking hoot.
#40. Netflix. Seriously, how did mankind survive before mail delivery of movies? Actually, I will admit when I first heard of Netflix years ago, I was like, "People are so lazy they can't even go down the block to their local Blockbuster to pick out a freaking movie!" Open mouth, insert foot. A few years later, I signed up for it. Mostly because there were a lot of TV shows I wanted to see and any time I rented one from Blockbuster, the guys behind the counter looked at me funny. I got tired of that and never looked back. I was not happy about their recent price increase, but the service is still decent. Although, sending me a cracked DVD did nothing to improve their image last month.
