I'm not sure why but I love carwashes, most of them anyways. It reminds me of the late summer time in southern California when I'd go to this small carwash and they had this big pond stocked with different colored goldfish and there was this little Japanese style bridge that crossed over it. Hey at five that was pretty cool. [Big Grin]

So what are some silly little things that make you happy?

Outdoors: Just a small walk in the field or 30 minutes kicking the soccer ball around in the back yard. When you are stuck inside all day because of school or homework those little breaks really help.

This week I downloaded the 1970s classic "Fish Heads" from iTunes, it always brings a grin to my face. [Big Grin]

Hehe, I guess I have to agree with Oz, Macintosh System 7.5.3 makes me giddy and pine for a time when computers and OSes were so much simpler and :gasp: just worked!

But, for the main thing that makes me happy, I only have 4 words: My 1978 VW Bus. [Big Grin]

My fish. He's a very handsome betta. I keep him above my desk in the lab. I did not tell my boss I was going to get a fish. I just went and did it, and so far I've been getting away with it (it's hard to argue against a small fish in a small bowl in an out of the way location). When I first got him he was terrified of his fish flakes and wouldn't eat for days. So I named him Killer.

Saying something really funny in the office and seeing someone snort coffee all over the place. I feel good all day after that.

Prom Dresses.

Right, I'm young. But every now and then I'll just go onto the web and look for prom dresses to show to my friends, or to mentally put my friends (of the female persuasion) into. It helps when the homeworks attack... I also get a kick out of sticking that special someone into this bad boy.

Sexy Tux *totally worksafe btw*

I just can't wait until I'm old enough to go to geekprom! [Big Grin]

It's really rude to hate muffins when they so like you! Muffins are quite fond of people, why don't you like them too?

I love eggs. It is a Japanese webpage that has singing egg adventures. It is too goofy for words.

Really round chunky Mary-Jane shoes in bright colours. They make me feel like a schoolgirl space-cadet, and my boyfriend calls me Miss Teen Wordpower when I wear them [Smile]

Listening to the Glider Pro theme song. Reminds me of Microsoft BOB too. It's quite irrational, really, but who cares?
