YES.

  • when part of a song makes my entire body tingle
  • smelling a freshly brewed cup of major dickason's blend
  • getting over one of my many personal issues
  • realizing something you've been waiting for for a long time has actually come and remembering that long time ago when you thought about what it'd be like for the thing to actually happen. That one's my favorite.

hehe, glad someone agrees with me so ... enthusiastically!
incidently, I had a weekend that included EVERYTHING in my last list, also the following new additions:
  • having the house almost to myself (my dad is in France; the kid sister is hardly ever home)
  • the beach. reading on the beach, especially.
  • playing with an iPhone 3G ... and then being able to hand it back to the person it belongs to, safe in the knowledge that I'm not paying a fortune for a phone that can't even deal with MMS :wink: good the faff on with for half an hour or so, though
  • discovering a comedian or film or TV show or book I love, introducing someone else to him/her/it, and having them agree ^.^ (me and the man LOVE Ed Byrne!)

I'm listening to one of those songs right now, and the only thing I can think of that is better is when a beautiful song becomes the soundtrack to a beautiful memory in my mind. I hear this song, get shivers, then get to enjoy the memory as well.

Mmmm.

Nawww, thanks. *curtsey* and so on.

Even just thinking about songs that are attached to memories that, combined, make me shiver is making me shiver.
I'M SHIVERING!
It's good.

I love climbing. It makes me happy when people in the streets look up, and it's written on their faces "How the hell did he get there?"

:D

Perhaps you are the illegitimate child of a frowned-upon mixed-species pairing? Antelope x mountain goat?

Having dinner with my family like old times, just sitting around talking for hours after all the food is gone...

Ranting along to The Mountain Goats, with cider, whilst playing Halo with friends you haven't seen in months.
Having the song you'd just imagined coming on your MP3 player come on your MP3 player when it's on shuffle.
Talking to a complete stranger and having them not be weird and not think you're weird.
Jesus Christ you have confused me
