Friday Soapbox

It comes very naturally for me to be ragey and cynical. But I saw on several other blogs where they were listing their simple pleasures, and thought that in light of how ragey and cynical I've been lately/always, I'd make that today's soapbox. A few of my simple pleasures are:
  • When a metro train pulls up right as I get off the escalator.
  • Anything argyle
  • Huggy sweaters (Sweaters that make you want to hug someone/be hugged.)
  • Fountains, chandeliers, tiaras, and pearls
  • Scalding hot showers
  • When my bank account has more money than I thought it did.
  • Finishing a book in a day because I had the time and it was just that good.
  • Lounging around in a pair of jeans and a Carolina hoodie.
  • Bebe chapstick from Germany
  • When things match
  • "I look at you, and I'm home." (Finding Nemo)
  • Exclamation points
  • Anything Carolina blue
  • Being warm.
  • When my friends just "get it."
  • Reading a book or article and thinking, "I could do better."
  • Anytime there's a new episode of a favorite TV show, especially when I thought it was going to be a repeat.
  • Obama
  • Every time the space shuttle lifts off.
  • Center Street at Christmas, The Old Well, Big Ben, and The White House
  • "If I could just find a place that made me feel like Tiffany's, I'd buy some furniture and give the cat a name." (Breakfast at Tiffany's)
  • To be continued...
