    fresh clean 1200 thread count sheets on my mattress
    plopping on the couch and watching the yankees
    smoking a cigar with my buds on a crisp fall day
    a nice glass of scotch at night

    BJ took longer than I thought it would...

    The smell of spent gunpowder
    The smell of racing fuel and tire smoke
    Finishing fixing and/or modding something on a car after going through a bunch of shit to get there (fuck you, engineers!)
    Hot shower on a cold rainy day
    Of course all things bacon
    NOT getting pulled over anytime I see a cop
    Getting off with a warning when I do get pulled over
    The warm feeling of the sun when you open the front door
    Flying

    That's what comes to mind right now. Definitely more, and as said before the list of things I hate would be a mile long. lol

    No contribution Reiko? Lame.



    I didn't mean for this to be NWS at all. Simple things that we enjoy. I find it interesting to see what other small things in life people enjoy.

    "The Other Guys". In the movie, a Desk Pop is an accidental pistol discharge at work. It was a funny scene.

    I know it sounds corny, but here we go:

    Night rides on a sport bike.
    Foggy rides on any bike.
    Being able to afford something that I want, versus need.
    Setting up a shot at the range with a scope, taking minutes to align it - focusing and NAILING the target.
    A good hair day, complete with straight pigtails.
    The perfect gear shift - sounds, catching the powerband, a smooth and surprising acceleration.
    The perfect drift.
    My commute (It's pretty neat, and not common)

    I laugh to myself with pride over my wife's cripple walk and get in trouble for it. "You bastard! My legs!" :)

    I've got a few that come to mind right now:

    -The sound of a racquetball bouncing. God I love that sound.

    -The sound of closing my car door in the underground parking garage at work when there are no other cars. Such a deep, rich, rumbling echo. I usually close my door 3 or 4 times when I get the chance to be there when it's empty, just to listen to it. I'm sure the security guys watching me on camera think I'm some kind of OCD freak. :)

    -My wife's sense of humor. First thing that comes to mind is her mentioning thongs a few days ago: "I don't like wearing these all day long. They... invade the mountains and valleys."

    Watching the sunrise over the water, sitting on my boat.

    Completing a difficult job that took a lot of blood, sweat, tears.

    The sound (and feel) of the turbo spooling and blowing off in my integra.

    Landing a big fish, not just any big fish... something significant. Like your biggest largemouth bass, or any number of large saltwater species that you really have to BATTLE, preferably on light tackle.

    My lay z boy recliner, with a pillow, a nice buzz, a beer in hand, tv remote in the other, and the AC vent blowing right on me.

    The smell of some serious southern bbq ribs over an open flame.
