Things I was happy about 4 years ago (and for the most part, still am).


  • Cadbury Creme Eggs

  • New episodes of Survivor (I haven't watched one episode this season)

  • My neighbors Sal and Maria, and their beautiful vegetable garden (They didn't have a garden last year or this past summer. Sal died from brain cancer early this year)

  • Being caught up with laundry (this is an ongoing battle)

  • David Sedaris at UMKC

  • Simpsons skies

  • White grape and peach juice

  • Hammy the hamster rolling in his ball (my in-laws pet hamster; he died two years ago)

  • Roy "playing dead" with Ralphie

  • Checking our wedding registries online to see what has been purchased

  • The Shelly voice from South Park

  • Hearty, grainy bread

  • Mr. Awesome's fried egg breakfast sandwiches

  • The sound of honking geese flying overhead

  • Bargains on formerly expensive sweaters

  • Andy Richter's puppy-lined jacket, because what good person doesn't love puppies?

  • Donnie Darko

  • Drinking lots of water

  • Really good hair conditioner

  • Automatic bathroom faucets

  • Paradise Grill's birthday dessert platter (this was one of my all-time favorite restaurants. It closed about 3 years ago)

  • Hand lotion scented with perfume

  • Mazda zoom zoom ads

  • Sade's songs

  • Taj Mahal Indian restaurant at 75th and Wornall (This place has a great lunch buffet, but I now think Swagat in Zona Rosa is my favorite)

  • Tofutti Cuties

  • The woman at Wal-Mart who asked her 6-month old child if it wanted cherry or grape cough syrup. She answered for it - grape (I really hate shopping at Wal-Mart and avoid it whenever possible)

  • Watching the Oscars to see what people wear

  • Drive-thru windows at pharmacies (I do mail-order now)

  • Wheat bagles with roasted red pepper hummus

  • Mom's teapot collection
