    gigantikok: Anyone ever make a list for themselves of all the little things that make your life worth living? I've got a few right on the top of my head:

    -Really fucking beautiful sunsets (I know that sounds cliche, but when the sky is engulfed with shades or orange and purple, I dont care about being cliche)

    -Gooey Tollhouse cookies

    -Boobies

    -Afternoon naps

    -Churros

    -Chihuahuas (named Pepito)

    -Theatre and Art

    -That one moment you realize for sure someone loves you back.

    -A shotglass with a picture of the Mormon Temple on it

    More to come soon... :)

    wvalady1968: All of the items on my list are cliches, Gig!

    That's probably how they became cliches, they're SO true and universal.

    gigantikok: Even if they are cliches, share! I wanna hear! Like you said, there are reasons why cliches become cliches.

    7x6andchg: LOL Pecker! Provided it ever gets a chance to work!

    Um, let's see...

    -sunrises (I'm a morning person, as many of you know, and I like the symbolism of another fresh day starting up)

    Watching the seasons change - one of nature's finest dances done almost but not quite the same every year.

    My friends and family

    My cats...sad, but true. The little buggers love me unconditionally. ;D

    Oh man, I can't believe I forgot to mention sex! That's quite possibly our most primal instinct, aside from eating, and it sure feels damn good, and I leave it off. Silly me. :)

    Here's some more:

    -Recieving packages in the mail

    -Ebay

    -Cartoons

    -The Internet (Duh!)

    -Fresh, juicy fruit salad (and I am talking GOOD fruit, not stale, old, or dry fruit)

    More to come...

    awellhungboi: I agree with you about fresh fruit salad, Gig. I have some every morning--and it definitely makes life worth living! Not to mention it makes me feel better than prozac ever did.

    Being of a hedonistic nature, it'd be easy for me to get carried away here, so let's see, here's my off-the-top of my head list

    my bike
    books
    sushi
    ice cold club soda
    dogs
    dancing
    stars
    the Marx Bros.

    chicago_girl: Some of the best things in my life:

    The smell of fresh cut grass on a weekend morning
    Spinning my niece around and around so much we both fall on the ground
    The happy greeting I get from my dog every time I come home, even if it's only been 20 minutes
    Sitting on the couch with the person I love just watching TV while holding hands
    Good friends and family
    Ice cream
    Hope
