10 Things Thursday

10 silly things that make me happy...

1. Glee (And when you read that, you must sing it!)--I love Glee. Laugh if you want, but I do. It's silly and fun. There's singing and dancing. And even though I do not yet have a tee shirt with "Gleek" bedazzled on it, Glee makes me happy. It's like a mini-musical every week.

2. And speaking of musicals, they make me happy, too. Grease, Hairspray, Mamma Mia, Oklahoma, The Phantom of the Opera, The Sound of Music... What's not to love? Great music. Cool costumes. Endearing characters. And did I mention the music?

3. Werewolves--Especially giant, hairy, vampire chasing werewolves.

4. Historical novels--I can't begin to count how many books I've read, but my favorites are historical. Castles, horses, knights in shining armor. And if it's based on actual people or events, I love it even more.

5. Julianna's songs--She loves to sing and dance and makes up songs all the time. This morning the title of her original composition was "Be the Yogurt." And yes, it was accompanied by a dance.

6. Clearance sales--Finding a great deal makes me happy. If it's on something I really need, it makes me really happy.

7. Coconut cream pie. Need I say more?

8. Music by Jason Mraz or Mandisa or Rascal Flatts or Hootie and the Blowfish.

9. Naps. On those very rare quiet afternoons when I can lay my head on the pillow and drift off to sleep without a care in the world and wake up refreshed and ready to take on the world.

10. And last but certainly not least, butterflies. Butterflies make me happy.

Have you read The Other Boleyn girl? I'm sure you have because you are on top of things. Anyway, it's semi-kinda-true and knight-y and great!

Julianna is so Zen... BE the yogurt..

No wonder we're friends. (Except for the coconut cream pie.)

Katrina said...

Don't you mean giant, hairy, BAD vampire chasing werewolves? ;)

Love your list! I am a 70% match to you on the happiness index. I think that means you're stuck with me!

Ada said...

1 Um, Glee is incredible and any that do not think so are clearly lacking in any kind of taste. Geesh.

2. You didn't mention Rent, Wicked, Evita or Annie.

3. You realize you're old enough to be his mother, right?

7. Gross. And I know for a fact that german choc cake make you smile.

9. I love myself a nap.

Alyson, I just finished it over spring break. LOVED it!

Marci, pie in general makes me happy.

Katrina, of course the ones who only chase bad vampires...and the vampires who are mean to the girl they love.

Ada, I've never seen Rent or Wicked! Do you have them? And I'm not sure who you think could be my son. I was just speaking of werewolves in general, of course. :) And yes, german chocolate cake makes me happy, too.
