  1. Ah, your list makes me happy. Happy people make me happy. PS, I’m an awesome waitress, it’s nice to know that makes people happy. Usually, the only vocal “guests” are the ones who are up-set, usually about something over which I have no control. But a good waitress made the list? Nice. I also like chocolate, but I’d have to add Asian food (anything with rice noodles and soy sauce!!!) to a happy list if I made one. In fact, you’ve inspired me to do just that, perhaps I’ll put it in the cover of my journal. Thanks girlie.

Let me know whatcha think
