I have a list of cheap thrills and I'm not too good to admit it. I don't think this is going to be reduced to a 'top (insert#here)' because I'd like for it to be the on going itemization of appreciation.
-I love love love seeing my name. I get a thrill out of seeing my name on just about anything (except for maybe bills). This extends to my initials or the appropriate representation of the almighty 'M' as well. Sitting on my couch- there are 4 visible 'M's. That's a success!
-I get so excited when I find money. Money truly found is nice but one better is the money left in clothes. It's thrilling because it's actually yours and it's like a bonus.
-I find exceptional joy in hearing someone, anyone say something that I say. Those sayings that weave their character into the daily fiber of your jargon. All of mine are admittedly borrowed from someone or something else so I most certainly don't mind hearing a bit of myself coming from the head of another.
-I love dusk. It's the hottest part of the day, the sun tries it's hardest when it succeeds at being too low for the sun visor and too high to be below the horizon which makes driving hazardous- but I think it's a reminder to slow down. It's just a slower part of what is normally a quick paced day.
-I like getting emails. More often than not they are a pain in my over worked, worked over ass that require me take my short attention-span from other things. I still like getting email. I like that it keeps me in contact with people that I would otherwise not be able to stay in touch with. I like that it forces me to sever those same ties when it's necessary. I like that I can sometimes hear your voice in my head. . . or my heart.
-I like that I've gone 2 (TWO!) weeks without hitting a squirrel.
-I like reading bumper stickers and figuring out personalized license plates.
