Happiness > Approval from others. I'd rather be happy and be doing my own thing and have people disappointed in me for it. I live my life for not and I do things the way I want to do them. I'm careful to not put anyone at harm or at risk for anything bad. I'm careful to keep myself out of harms way as much as I can. If the way I live my life is a disappointment to you, too fucking bad. I live my life for me, not anyone else.
Ice cream > Cookies. Ice cream owns all desserts. Well, not all of them but most of them. Well, definitely cookies. And no, adding ice cream to cookies isn't better. I like vanilla with chocolate chip cookie or cookies and cream as well as the next person. However, I prefer my ice cream to not have cookies and I'm not fond of cookie ice cream sandwiches.
Long conversations with friends, in person > Long conversations with friends through IM. Not that there's anything wrong with long instant messaging conversations, I just prefer to talk in person. Sitting on my butt looking at a screen for too long bothers me. I talk in an animated way. I cannot animatedly type into an instant message box and have as much fun as having a real live person in front of me. Given that most of my friends aren't people I know from on-line, it's not really an issue. I do love a good instant messaging chat from time to time though.
Washing dishes > Doing laundry. True story. I hate doing laundry that much. Really, it's the folding and hanging bit I hate. The putting stuff in the washing machine and watching the detergent bubble up like mad is pretty fucking sweet. It's like baby steps chemistry without the risk of blowing something up. Putting stuff in the dryer is easy too. If only cleans clothes would fold and hang on their own. See, technology isn't that fucking advanced yet people.
Little is better than...
A bowl of cereal with ice cold milk.
A long, warm shower after a stressful day.
Kisses on the back of the neck.
Freshly washed sheets warm out of the dryer.
Seeing a favorite band play live.
Being able to laugh about something mid-fuck and being able to keep going.
Red velvet cupcakes.
Getting those hugs from behind where your back is resting against his stomach with his arms wrapped around your waist.
Surprise gifts that are given "just because."
A mug filled with a warm drinks and being wrapped in thick, warm blanket when it's really cold.
Laughter, genuine gut busting laughter.
Spending a lazy, rainy day in bed with your significant other. Not just for sex but just laying there talking, listening to the rain hit the window, watching movies and being goofy hanging out together.
Going to see a live hockey game. (Must say, I went to the Stars/Kings game last night and my seat was down in the lower bowl, center ice, 5 rows away from the fucking glass. AMAZING seats.)
