13 basic truths

According to me:
  1. Guys on motorcycles are anonymously, infinitely sexy in their helmets & gear
  2. Hearing my kids belly laugh can make my day
  3. Watching a parent absently, tenderly put a hand on a teen child's shoulder moves me
  4. Bacon makes everything better
  5. Buying stuff at Goodwill stimulates the economy
  6. The new sticker arrangement on my laptop has improved my overall mood
  7. Saying things in Spanish, with strong accent, is immensely satisfying
  8. "Hence" and "thus" are pretty excellent words
  9. Browsing bookstores is close to sex on my Bliss List
  10. Some people will never open their eyes to the world
  11. Warm, quiet baths cure many ills
  12. Freshly sharpened pencils are like brand new days
  13. Remembering someone's name can be a gift, to both of you

Thursday Thirteen ~ truly enjoyable

Quiet baths and browsing bookshops are high up on my list of bliss too ;0)

Oh yes and a book store. Love the smell, the books, the Starbucks...everything about the place. Me too.

My thirteen is posted. Come visit and view some of my favorite personal photos I took of them....Clydesdales that is. Happy Thursday.

Some great reflections there. I tend to agree with you - except the sexy bikers, of course :-)

There's nothing like listening to your kids laughing - it always makes me happy.

Jen said...

Great list...totally agree about everything, especially the pencils.

Danielle said...

Bookstores and pencils, yes good good things!!

On the way to our cruise ship vacation to Cozumel last summer my son (11) came out with this -
"How does a Mexican say potato?"

Being the ultimate straight man I replied, "I don't know son, how is that?"

Loudly with a'la your number 7 (with strong accent) he announces

(try it out loud for full effect)

Then we all break into laughter!

Good list and very true - especially #4, lol. And number twelve made my little artist's heart happy - I love a sharp #2 pencil!

I went topical this week - my TT :

Thirteen Ways to get your money back from those bailed out bank burglars!

Happy TT!

Janet said...

I need some stickers for my's nekkid!

Anonymous said...

I love this - and I'm so glad the new sticker arrangement makes you happy - life's too short for bad stickers!

Alison said...

Great list! I'm the same way about bookstores.

Anonymous said...

Yep. Exactly. All the above.

I'm a big fan of "thus" myself.

Tricia said...

Fantastic 13! I love bookstores and would live in one if I could. I like 13, having lived with someone with Alzheimer's I know how devastating it can be on both sides when one doesn't.

Well said.

And when I agree so completely, my friend's opinions become mine as well.

Hence, it is thus.

Gretchen said...

I love this list. I have an issue with #1, though. From my vantage point, most motorcycle guys I see have a very long braided ponytail with grey streaked into it, and a big beer belly in the front which forces them to lean WAAAYYY back on the hog. Not exactly an aphrodisiac. And, I agree with you about Goodwill (I just got my fix this afternoon) but I wonder about the books... do you go to the RETAIL booksellers or do you frequent book resale shops too?

Zenmomma said...

I'm with you about the bacon...and lots of other things on your list. Great TT!

stan said...
