Inspired by Roxi Atomic's discussion, "What are your pet peeves?"  

I thought this needed a more positive word than "unpeeve".

Watching a particularly colourful sunrise over the mountains.

The first ripe tomato of the season.

Being understood without having to go into a long discussion of personal history, societal issues, world view, etc...

Seeing the first hummingbird of the season.

Meeting someone who it seems like you've known forever.

Intellectual stimulation.

Clever turns of phrase.

Being able to extrapolate.


Having a place like Atheist Nexus where I can hobnob with fellow non-theists.

Seeing the sun is out is a good day for me.
I'm with you there! I lived in the Pacific Northwest for a year, and I thought I was going to go crazy! I'm back in Georgia now--and enjoying the sunshine!

Being in Nexus makes me happy, I get to see others who think rationally and make me realize there is such a thing as intelligence after all.

Seeing my kids get good grades in their report cards

teaching my kids the truth (scientific, mythologic, etc) so they wont become victims to religion
Mango gelato and a tropical fruit smoothie after work. :D
I don't really know what the specific things that make me happy are. Usually socialising makes me happy and after that I just feel good and everything seems fun. And I love getting a compliment it just brightens your whole day even if it's something simple (and a bit shallow) like your hair looks great today. I love complimenting other people or making them laugh and brightening someone else's day. I love that accepting feeling you get when your happy, just accepting everything, life, death, happiness and sadness.
Aaaaaah... a penis.
Is that anything like that business from Last Tango in Paris:

Paul: [as Jeanne passes her hands over his pants] That's your happiness and my hap-penis.
making them or getting them?
A pen is mightier than a sword?
If it were true, philosophers would rule over warlords. Alas, as it turns out, Immanuel can't but Genghis can.
