Does anyone remember that book? It was right at the cutting edge of the new age, shiny-happy-people-holding-hands part of the nineties (which went very oddly with the grunge… don’t ask me to explain… I listened to R.E.M. and Pearl Jam and rode out the contradictory wave with hardly a batted eyelash…)
Anyway– the book was called 10,001 Things That Make Me Happy– and it was, in truth, a list, and sort of a way to count your blessings, and was, I’m starting to think, the grandmother of the blog MeMe. So, I was finishing stuff up today, and nursing my UTI (dudes… don’t ask… not the first time I’ve ever worked myself sick, but not the most dignified either!) when it occurred to me that A. It was time to blog, and B. I was oddly enough, out of words.
I needed to take a cue from Knittech and write a 1000 word post (you know, a picture is worth a thousand words?) but I had to get CLEVER because all of my pictures SUCKETH, and, well, I had some sort of residual horror memory of that book and R.E.M. singing “Shiny happy people holding hands!” and a bad Cipro reaction, and, well, here we are.
Things that make me happy! (And now, with EXTRA SPECIAL EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!)
In no particular order…
Little girls in hats!

Good friends AND knitting!
Which includes, even without a picture, all of you:-)
