With all these unfortunate and negative threads (not a personal attack on anyone) I think we could all use a happy thread. List 5 things that make YOU happy.

1. Guitar Tricks
2. Not having a Myspace
3. Steam Whistle
4. The Greasy knots/Sigma tour
5. Pinky and the Brain


This has got to be the dumbest thing i've ever done :rolleyes: :p
For life is quite absurd and death's the final word, You must always face the curtain with a bow
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

Hmmm. 5 things that make me happy? Well,

1) Family (including friends and my bud, the Wonder Dog)
2) Faith (we'll leave it at that...)
3) Music (That would be a given, right??)
4) Books (can't imagine life without them)
5) Good food and drink (when done right, it's a feast for the senses, plus good drink can knock the fuzz right off the peach...) :)

I don't know about "happy", but these are some things that make me feel good.

1) Listening to depressing music
2) Watching movies with sad endings
3) Getting a compliment
4) Being good at something that nobody knows I'm good at
5) Having something definite to look forward to and knowing when it will happen
6) Finding out that somebody said something good about me when they didn't mean for me to find out. Actually that never happened. But if it did I would like it.
You go outside and practice screaming. We'll play music while you're gone.

things that make me feel good/relaxed... i'm very composed, i do't get angry/sad/mad often. No particular order.

1. Playing guitar and having a beer
2. drinking beer number 10 and having a fine cigar
3. John Mayer's new album "Continuum" while having a beer
4. The feeling you get when you finally lie down after having 3 long work outs for baseball in one day... I welcome the aches and pains... then having a beer.
5. Watching Notre Dame, Purdue, Chicago Bears, Indy Colts, and Chicago White Sox games while having a beer.
