Today’s Love List

August 5, 2010

I find this to be a very calming exercise, and since I’m feeling anything but calm right now (my anxieties are off the charts, completely of my own making), here we go:

10 Things I Love

  1. I love that in a world focused on negativity (war, recession, crime), there are still some journalists out there who report on the most ridiculous things, putting a smile on my face. Read this article on fancy shmance washrooms
  2. Parcels. First you get the notification that something has arrived. You wonder: who’s it from? What could it be? How big is it? You make your way to the post office and stand in an insanely long line. You hand over the slip and watch as the attendant browses through the parcels out front. Is that one it? No. That one?? OMG, she’s going to the back, it must be HUGE!! Finally, she walks out carrying YOUR parcel. You quickly show your ID and sign your name and voila! It’s all yours. Carrying it out to the car, you ask yourself if you can wait until you get home to open it. Deciding to put aside your selfish desire to rip into it, you manage to restrain yourself, but once you’re in the door you make a run for the kitchen to grab a steak knife to open it up. There’s no time to find scissors! Cursing the one who packed it, you finally open up the top and lift out the contents. And bliss. Even if it’s something you already know you’re getting (thank you internet, for online shopping!), there is nothing like opening up a parcel.
  3. Coffee. I don’t even need to elaborate. Either you get it, or you don’t.
  4. The colour red.
  5. A really great sneeze. You know, the one that’s been just tickling your nose for the past hour that won’t come no matter how hard you try? My sneezes can literally rock the foundation of the earth, and sometimes they hurt, but once they’ve passed, I feel awesome! Apparently there are endorphins released when you sneeze that are the same released during orgasm. Huh. I found this joke online: A man and a woman are sitting beside each other in the first class section of the plane.The woman sneezes, takes a tissue, gently wipes her nose, and shudders quite violently in her seat.The man isn’t sure why she is shuddering and goes back to reading.A few minutes pass. The woman sneezes again. She takes a tissue, gently wipes her nose and shudders quite violently in her seat.The man is becoming more and more curious about the shuddering.A few more minutes pass. The woman sneezes yet again. She takes a tissue, gently wipes her nose and shudders violently again.The man has finally had all he can handle. He turns to the woman and says, “Three times you’ve sneezed and three times you’ve taken a tissue and wiped your nose then shuddered violently! Are you sending me signals, or are you going crazy?” The woman replies, “I’m sorry if I disturbed you. I have a rare condition and when I sneeze, I have an orgasm.” The man, now feeling a little embarrassed but even more curious says, “I’ve never heard of that before. What are you taking for it?” The woman looks at him and says, “Pepper.”
  6. That rare moment where all the clothes you own, with the exception of what you’re wearing, are clean. The outfit potential is astronomical!
  7. Falling asleep knowing someone out there is thinking of you
  8. Eating.
  9. Playing a really awesome song over and over and over and over…….
  10. The smell of a bookstore. I just breath in the knowledge.
