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.

I've got one, I listen to ambient music, usually called "Space Trance". I have a very specific track I listen to. Then I think about the universe that is, and try to comprehend the vast size of it... such tranquility...

Unfortunately my mind is simply unable to understand the size, and thinking about the diversity of different that must exist in exotic places.

Now that is what makes me happy.
Tea. Black, white, green, red, I drink several cups a day.
Dream Theater.
Drag queens.
Men kissing.
Ragtime piano.
