In response to the "pet peeves" thread that's been so popular here, I thought everyone might appreciate a bit of optimism. To quote the great John Connor, "I think we need to be a little more positive here." What are some things you really, really love? This doesn't have to be anything really deep, like "My wife and kids" or "Achieving a goal like graduating from college." Just the little stuff that makes you smile. Here are a few of mine: Getting a rebate check in the mail after you'd forgotten ever sending away for it. When you're looking for a parking spot and you see the reverse lights of someone pulling out right in front of the office/store, opening a spot for you. When the stoplight changes from red to green so you can coast right through the light. Getting the last copy of a movie/game/book at the store. When someone still has the courtesy to say "excuse me." Being truly surprised by a twist in a book or movie. When pre-orders are finally available! When something makes you laugh so hard you are in tears, and just thinking about it makes it hard to stifle a laugh. Experiencing something truly spectacular that makes you proud of what humanity is capable of - a glorious piece of art or music, a magnificent example of architecture or engineering, a profound book, etc... Okay, that one is a little bit deep. Feel free to share!
