Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.....


So what are you happy for?


The only rule is NO BITCHING/WHINING

this year I have many reasons to be happy...

I got to watch 3 of my favorite DJ's perform live,for free. I finally quite smoking which is something I had always wanted to do, and last but not least I am just happy to live in a wonderful city like Ottawa.....

I'm happy that as young as my kids are, they are aware of how they are able to give back to their community. This is the second year in a row that they've emptied their piggy bank and used the contents to buy a box full of food that we took down to a local foodbank.  ;D
It's good to laugh at yourself once in a while - why let everyone else have all the fun!

Good for you, bri.

I'm happy you quit smoking, Frank.

I've just bought Tales from the Circle with no technical difficulties. So I'm happy. I couldn't express how happy I am on the other thread, so I'm doing it here. For those in the bar, the drinks are on me.

I'm happy that Frank explained to me what happiness was.  Up until then I had no idea what that strange emotion was which made me feel all was well with the world even when it quite patently wasn't.  I bet you didn't know there was a patent on unhappiness, and legally you aren't allowed to use it unless you pay a considerable sum of cash each year to Frank.

Misery is forbidden too.  Steven King owns that one.

Pssst:  Bootleg emotions are available from illicit suppliers, but the quality tends to be sporadic.

That's me.  Almost poetic.  Almost famous.  Almost human.  Almost skint.

But I'm happy.
