What makes you happy

  1. Hey everyone!

    Since we have a 'what makes you mad' thread going and since IBN suggested it, we need a 'what makes you happy' thread.

    What makes me the happiest is playing with my 4 year old son. Doesn't really matter what we are playing (baseball, legeo's, spray daddy with the hose...) it's just so much fun to be with him and see his energy. :bounce:

    Another thing that makes me happy is reading. It allows me to escape from what ever is bothering me.

    Things that make me happy.

    Techspot when it`s running smoothly.

    People who post in the correct forum.

    People that give their threads a proper and descriptive thread title.

    People who don`t post their problems in someone elses thread(particularly in the security and the web forum). :p

    People who read the stickies before posting.

    People who use the edit button effectively, rather that making a new post.

    People who don`t flame others.

    people who don`t spam.

    Bacon and eggs.

    A few pints of beer in my local pub with friends and family.

    Watching Liverpool FC play football.

    Taking the dog for a walk in the countyside.

    Peace and quiet, when I can get it. :p

    Regards Howard :)

    Techspot makes me happy, and sleeping nearly 12 hours makes me even more happy :)

    Also, my LCD makes me happy, my AMD CPU, and my internet too (just upgraded from 512kbps to 1Mbit :) ).

    what makes me happy is kind of similar to what Howard said.

    Whenever everything at school and home goes well, then i can go to sleep at night not worrying about something that happened the day before.

    Walking down the road to the potmac and fishing. Relaxing as hell.
    Hanging out with buddies
    Fall mornings where you walk outside and see the trees that have turned.
    TS threads like this in the meeting spot. (opposed to the flames)

    A woman is a thing of wonder and beauty.

    But sometimes just wonder, or beauty, and sometimes just a thing :)
