Name 10 things that bring you a moment of joy, and tag 4 friends to do the same.

First of all. What are these "memes" and why do everyone keep posting one?
1. Last weekend, sitting and watching the lake and the morning sun, with the trees and the breeze and the nice chilly weather.
2. Getting my iris last weekend, with the lovely promisory scroll from antoniseb.
3. Seeing my cat curled up, sleeping, at peace on my bed.
4. That thistle at Pennsic with my very own court was very nice too.
5. The morning after, watching the form or face of your lover as he sleeps.
6. When it's somewhat chilly, and you crawl into your covers and feel all snuggly and comfy.
7. At night, the sight of a snow covered field, with snow on pine trees in the dark.. with the shadowy glow of the snow.
8. In a ballroom dance, like lindy hop, when you have a very good lead, and you can just let yourself get into the zen of dancing in perfect response to his body.
9. Despite all my liberalness... sometimes, I get moments of joy from remembering God, my Father.
10. When my code works right the first time. (Or at least the first few times)
11. Really good sushi. Really good chocolate. Really good port. etc.
12. Good, excellent, intellectual conversation.
13. Running in the morning.
14. Realizing I have friends who love and care for me like a family. Or better.

tag: anyone who wants to do this.

Because we are sheep and/or procrastinators. Plus, they often have pretty pictures. :)

Speaking of having friends who love you, we should get together sometime soon. It's been AGES!

Those are all great. Basically, one reason that we do these things is it allows our readers to build up a sense of what we are like based on seeing a collection of mostly harmless intimate memories and thoughts.

Ok, so catching up
Ok, so I see this is from October 2005. Means I've got some catching up to do. But ok. I'll bite. In no particular order by the way.

1) Getting up above the treeline. The world opens wide. You feel on top of the world. You start *breathing* differently, and provided you stay for a while, time itself starts ticking in a different rhytm.

2) Seeing the sun rise on my way to work. Ok, so at my latitude this only happens like in march and septhember (in summer the sun is up like at 4am, and in winther like at 10am, so neither of those will work)

3) My friends. You are one. Which is strange, sorta, I never met you and it's sometimes literally years between contacts. There's people I've spent much more time with which *aren't* friends, just aquaintances. Don't ask me how this works, it just does.

4) Music. Music brings back memories for me.

5) My wife. My kids. There's a lot surrounding these too, but that'd make the list a family-list which is boring.

6) Your 5,6,10,12,14

7) Food ? Tricky. Moussaka ? Bifteki ? Chili ? Reindeer ?

8) Traveling. New experiences in general.

9) A really good book and a cup of warm chocolate in front of the fireplace, preferably on a day with *really* sucky weather.
