asked for five things that always make me smile, and why.
1. Love memes
. I mean, I always love them - there’s an email in my gmail titled ‘to cheer you up’ with a link to my thread in a previous love meme, and I have found it before when feeling low. But I am especially in favour of them right now :) I know some people may end up feeling sad and left out, which is terribly sad (and one of the major reasons I strongly encourage putting up one’s own name). But seeing everyone leave love for everyone else is just delightful - I beam seeing it - and it’s actually incredibly fun finding threads and telling friends you love them. And this one has been extra-lovely, because it’s grey and bleak and cold, and because LJ is so much quieter these days and yet - look! 650 comments and it’s still going!
2. Yo!Sushi. Delicious food, a system that caters to all my worst instincts for variety and excess, bright colours - and I associate it with happy things, like cinema trips with nixied
, and hanging out with son_of_darkness
, and introducing Miss Godfrey to cool stuff in London, and being back in the UK where they don’t put icky seeds all over their rice. *glares meaningfully at Vietnamese sushi*
3. Cats, especially my boy Smudge. Cats! They’re so cute, so adorable, so darling, so CUTE! And they’re often wary of new people, so if you can make friends with them it’s an extra triumph! Sometimes they sniff spicy human leftovers and sneeze! Smudge used to follow me on my paper round! CATS!
4. Singing along to Disney films with my friends. I love my friends! I love singing, despite being not terribly good at it! I love Disney films! Usually, anyway. It’s really fun :D This is why for my twenty-fourth, given the strong possibility I will still be living at my mum’s house in a month (bah) I will have a party that involves asking for my own DVDs of Disney films and having everyone hang out in my sitting room and chat and sing along to Disney for many hours. With booze!
5. Spanking. Oh, kink of kinks. A filthy grin always appears on my face when I see that warning. HELL YEAH.
