    We've had two negative, pessimistic, naysayer threads. "Pissmeoff" and "annoy". But, there's a flipside to every coin, right?
    So... what cheers you up when you're put down by the world, eh?

    1) Good music:
    Nothing like a peaceful song or instrumental to cheer me up.
    2) Friendly people:
    For every asshat and buttmonkey out in that mean nasty place we call our homeplanet, theres a nice person. The polite people. The people who say "Please" and "Thank you" and are courteous to others. The people who, in general, restore a little faith in humanity.
    3) Mentos and Mtn. Dew:
    I could be angry, disillusioned, depressed, mopey. But a few fruit mentos and a cold can of Mtn. Dew, and I'm good as new.
    ~
    I'll add more later...
    So, speak out folks. And try to think cheery thoughts!



    (In regards to the thread title, get your minds out of the gutter...)

    Any time spent wth my lovely woman.

    Going to car boot sales with a pocket full of ready cash and finding something rare for very cheap. But just going and browsing is nice too.

    When the mail arrives and there's nothing bad in it.

    Enjoying a really nice meal and yummy drink.

    Having an awesome kip that leaves me fresh and full of energy.

    A nice relaxing shower.

    Listening to a storm, preferably as it hammers down on my conservatory roof.

    Playing games with my dog.

    And the bestest thing of all is all those things can and have happened within the span of a single day. :)

    Probably will post more as I think of them, but for a start:

    - Riding my bicycle into work on a day like today, when the traffic is quiet, it's still dark out, there's a nice breeze and the weather is a little cool, but not cold.
    - Being alone. I'm not very social and don't like having other people around, so I only relax when I'm on my own.
    - Depositing money into my personal Roth IRA and seeing the automatic transfers from my pay cheque to my work IRA. Sure, the market sucks right now, but some day that money is going to allow me to retire and have (virtually) complete freedom, so it makes me happy to see the accounts grow.
    - Enjoying my favorite foods, especially pizza or Cadbury Creme Eggs.
    - A good shower.
    - Dusting and rearranging my toys every few months.
    - Finding a great deal on an item on my "want" list.
    - Listening to good music.

    - good music, especially if it makes me dance
    - making someone smile
    - meet friends
    - great parties
    - a good meal
    - when the sun shines and it is warm
    - Payday when there is money on my bank account again (why is there always so much month left at the end of the money?)

    The secret to happiness is low expectations. You're never disappointed and every once in a while you're pleasantly surprised.

    I am consistently amazed with how happy waking up with a sunbeam splashing across my bed, and then closing my eyes and sleeping in even more makes me.

    Family
    The family of cats (headed by the brother/sister duo of Anya and Loki Bear!)
    Chocolate
    Rain, especially when Liverpool are playing at home and it's absolutely throwing it down. My mobile and broadband signals disappear when they are, so this is what I like to think of as payback - soaking wet football fans make me very happy.
    The end of the football season, because I hate football.
    Taking my socks off.

    oh yes food. i didn't even know it until the wife pointed it out but if i miss any meals of day i get cranky. snacks don't count it only makes me even hungrier.

    - any seafood will do.
    - steak medium rare please
    - 3 packs of ramen noodles with one egg
    - any filipino food minus liver
    - actually any asian food minus liver or fung zhao. take me to dim sum and i'll be your best friend.
    - my mom's cooking minus her dry pancit. everything else is awesome for the tummy.
    - the wife's cooking.
    - ethnic food. any. thank god i live in montreal anywhere else my taste buds won't agree. it has be cooked by someone from that ethnic group. it has to be authentic or else i'll point out what's missing. name the ethnic group he or she is my neighbor or co-worker or was a classmate. fair warning to restaurant, i've been invited to eat the homecooked ones and like any good immigrant familly the grandma is there to cook.
    - spicy food. a thousand apoligies to my caucasian brothers but white people spicy don't count. want spicy?
    - italian food. half the family is italian. so yeah i grew up with it. i'm picky with my italian restaurants. make it like nona carmella's cooking and we're good.
    - bagels and smoked salmon. mmmmmm.
    - tomalley if you don't know what this is that's bad. if you don't like it that's just sad.
    - cheeks are the best part of any animal. on fish, it just melts in your mouth. mmmmm!

    too many to mention, i can keep going on about this.
