It's contagious, and it's official (aka Tiny Little Things That Cause You Irrational Joy)

I, for one, have loved the 'Tiny Little Things That Cause You Irrational Rage' thread...
It's been a great place to get the irratations of life it 'off your chest' and onto the forum

However, as happiness is now officially contagious, shall we see if we can beat the negative with the positive?

First pint on a Friday.
Pizza
Seeing that guy from Haart (William?)on a bike
I've got a tiny little thing that causes me irrational joy. Doesn't seem to give anyone else any pleasure, though.




And I thought the piccolo was such a joyful instrument.
The achievement 'bing'
know the weekend is just about to start

whoopie...

Sunshine
Whippets
hearing squeeky "dada,dadda, dadda"s from my 18 month old when his mum says it's time to wake me up and he's toddling up to our bedroom door...even though it means I've got to stir....
Cricket in the sunshine
Driving at night in the rain on a country road listening to the stone roses or ub40
The glug, glug, glug of the first glass of wine.
Ive just poured mine and your right
Rain hitting off your tent.
Waking up on holiday with that split second "where the hell am I??? Oh Yeah" feeling feeling.
Tiny Little Things That Cause You Irrational Joy

Would it be in bad taste for me to mention Keira Knightley’s breasts at this point?

Telegram Sam. After the 'dry' sounding guitar intro.
Marc Bolan's scream of 'Oooh Baaabby'.
Never fails to introduce joy into my heart.

And on from there Quids, the sound of your child's voice, and your voice, throughout your lives.
My boy is an adult, but when I pick up the'phone and hear the words "Hello Dad" the joy of the unconditional love I gave him as an infant is right there with me.
There might follow a conversation of numpty banality, Swiftian wit or something in between, but we always tell each other 'Love you' on parting.

Absolutely not Brendan, well within the spirit of the thread, what ever makes you happy!

But which ones were you referring to though?
Little white ball going in the correct direction

Waking up with huge hangover about 10am, panic its a weekday and you have overslept for work and realising with great relief its the weekend

that was exactly my point, Mick Mac...
I know CC - sorry - quickly realised I was being a dope and was editing my post, but you beat me too it and now I am shamed in print forever.
Aw, thanks for the thanks about my "Tiny Little Things..." thread! I hereby return the favour.

Nothing beats waking up, turning over and looking at the clock and realising it's only ten past five and you can go back to sleep for another nearly two whole hours!

(Conversely there's not much more annoying than waking up half an hour before the alarm goes off. Not enough time to get back to sleep properly, but just long enough that you'll be yawning at your desk all day.)

I think you should change the title of the thread though - apparently you get more hits with a title that sounds like a Fall album!

Shouldn't the above go in the 'other thread' PinkyB???

Nah, tis there merely for comparison purposes. The first one is only such a pleasure because of the numerous times the second one has occurred instead. Wake up, usual sense of mounting dread, turn over - surprise! "free" extra hour and a half in bed!


But if you want an unconditional joy, how about when you're lying in bed in the dark, all cosy and warm, and it's raining really hard outside? Oh, and it's the weekend.

Not all of my joys are sleep-related, I should say. Quite a lot of them are, though. One of the simplest and greatest of pleasures.

And now I'm making myself yawn...
Dishing out a huge serving of fanny to my opponents when playing petanque.
The crackle hiss of vinyl just before my favourite song comes one.

Feck it, before any song comes on. Hiss crackle pop, old vinyl going round and round and round...

Snap. This just trumps first pint and a Peter Crouch overhead kick goal.
