    Cuddling up to Richard. He can be on his computer or watching a video, it doesn't matter. Just so long as I can be in physical contact with him.

    when you first hear rain/thunder outside. something is so peaceful and romantic about that.

    when people remember to leave your food in the fridge for you,

    when you can tell by the tone of somebody's voice that people just want to have a pleasant conversation with you, and not bully you or start a fight with you. or preach/nag at you and throw their politics in your face... just socialize with you, as a human equal. nobody's perfect, we all wanna fight i think but once in a blue moon ppl look out for each other, shed the shell of being an asshole and its great.

    The right music can influence my mood to a rather surprising degree. As of late I've been using this gem to even me out and put things into perspective:

    While sex heads a great number of lists, we all have other things we like to do in between. With me, Corwin, it's drumming, being up in the air, and gambling — in no special order. Well, maybe soaring has a little edge — in gliders, balloons, and certain variations — but mood has a lot to do with that too, you know. I mean, ask me another time and I might say one of the others. Depends on what you want most at the moment.

    Love books too. I especially like my favorite.

    I wish I could "like" this more.


    For me -

    Just stopping to soak in whatever good that my senses can pick up. A lot of the time, when I try to focus on everything, it can get to be sensory overload; but sometimes I just sit down and let whatever comes to me come, without trying to focus or set importance on or interpret anything. If something stands out to me, I enjoy it and just let it be. Wind on my face, sunlight in raindrops, daphne from the plant by my door, kids playing down the street, white pear tea.

    Hugs from my sister, even if they're in text format.

    Coming home to sit on the floor so my dog can try to fit himself on my lap, letting me hold and squeeze him.

    Watching someone be kind to someone else.

    Imagining stories in my head, escaping into other worlds.

    Praying, especially for other people (taking my focus off myself, expanding it). Though it isn't always exactly pleasant, praying helps me with attitude adjustments, too.

    ...and sometimes bad moods are just because I need to eat something and/or be warm and/or sleep...

    Smoking a cigarette at sunrise
    When you're too tired to stay on the computer or read a good book.
    Everything involving "Fuck it"
    Seeing some stranger stoned while being stoned and then getting that "teeheehee we have a secret we just exchanged with an eye contact"
    When people first seem like 2D NPCs but are actually real people.
    When people are two-dimensional with their Thing and do it right.
    Giving up on things that were actually less important than you thought they were.
    Flirting.
    Bonding with a stranger.
    Bonding with a stranger you are never going to meet again.
    Bonding with a stranger you think you have met in another place and time.
    Finding common enemies and mutual interests.
    Owning a bath tub.
    Getting into a bath tub.
    Not getting out of the bath tub.
    Mutual laughter that eases the prior awkwardness.
    Nodding like you really mean it.
    Being treated like a cat.
    Flirting to your reflection on a mirror.
    Level up.

    music that hits the spot, the first cup of coffee in the morning, unexpected visits from my dad and/or brother, stumbling across a good poem or phrase, the sound of rain and thunder, going somewhere random by myself or with my kid on a saturday, the sound and feel of my cat leaping and landing on my bed, getting my eyebrows waxed, looking around my apartment after i've cleaned it and lighting an incense to top it off

    Planning a road trip that I think will actually happen. Being around someone who makes me comfortable enough to unself-consciously sing because I love to sing but I am a horrible singer. A terrible but happy singer.

    This is just a pet peeve of mine but I don't view sex as simple. I think good sex is like learning how to play a complicated musical instrument... and it requires creativity too. The older I get, the more I need 'extra parts in the story' to turn me on. I like it to be rich with many layers not just 'this is hot cuz its visceral.'
