    I have noticed that in my life there are certain things that make me smile, fill me with joy and happiness. A few examples:
    The opening music for the Star Wars movies,
    The first bite of a Reeces peanut butter cup,
    The THX sound
    Kirks "To boldly go..." speech in the opening of Star Trek
    my moms lasagna
    the smell of money
    lots and lots of sex[​IMG]
    acceleration, like when a jet takes off
    the sound of a Harley
    Neil Young's "Cinnamin Girl"
    did i mention sex[​IMG]
    the Three Stooges
    plants that expand the mind[​IMG]
    the sound of my Dad's canon (it is so loud that when he shoots it off you feel a thump in your chest)
    Jay Leno's wacky newspaper adds
    So what makes you smile?

    I would honestly have to say that the #1 thing that makes me smile is the smiles and laughter of little kids. This has actually led me to becoming a teacher, well in 3 semesters! [​IMG]
    Other things that make me smile:
    Beautiful women
    Sex, doesn't have to be a lot [​IMG] Just any.
    Other people smiling
    Nearly any, even rather bad, DD/DTS home theaters.
    That "rush" you get when on a roller coaster.
    An Egg McMuffin [​IMG]
    When I start gettin' a "buzz" from alcohol
    When others acknowledge things I have done...only good things though!
    Many others, but it's 3:14 am. Too late, or early, to think.

    I don't smile. [​IMG] Yes, I've heard that it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile but I need the exercise... [​IMG]

    Gut munching zombie movies.

    Stuff like the recent discovery of a new type of giant squid or evidence that the fine structure constant may have been different at one time.

    Thunderstorms.

    Critters with hooves.

    Tasty critters.

    A successful launch.

    Cats.

    To name a few.

    Looking at my DVD collection.
    Looking at my cat sleeping on his back with his feet in the air.
    Looking at Sandy bending over to pick up her slippers wearing only tiny white panties (oooh you sexist bastard Steve).[​IMG]
    Browsing the HTF always makes me smile, yawn, grimace, fume, drink, belch, yodel, laugh, drool and finally pass out in a drunken heap on the carpet.[​IMG]

    When a current HTF member who happens to be on my bowling team, "lets one go," and people half way down the alley hold their noses and run for fresh air. [​IMG]
