30 things that make me smile

Every blog has this post. So I thought I’ll do one too. And I don’t have to think too much.

There are lots of small things around you which bring a big smile on your face, every time you encounter them. They help make our mostly mundane lives a little more interesting, a little more cheerful. Here are MY 30:

  1. Waking up from a Sunday afternoon nap to mild thunderstorms and impending rain (Time for Onion pakodas!)
  2. Encountering all green lights on your way back home.
  3. A surprise visit from a close friend
  4. Finding a new anime buddy (the passion is just contagious :D)
  5. Someone close calling you up with the sole purpose of disturbing your sleep
  6. When the songs playing from your random playlist are all your favorites and you didn’t have to skip one song
  7. SRK and Juhi Chawla in “Ek din aap yun humko mil jayenge”
  8. Meeting an old friend in a far away country (heaps of nostalgia)
  9. Receiving a text message from a friend exactly when you were about to text them
  10. When you wake up from a deep and satisfying sleep and check the time to find that its still 3 AM ( Awesome!)
  11. When your six year old niece gives you a earful when you finally visit her after 5 months
  12. Message from the bank that your salary has been credited to your account.
  13. When you wake up from sleep, power up monitor and see that every download in the overnight download queue is completed.
  14. Any of these combinations when every ingredient is just right – rice+hot sambar+ghee/ masala dosa+chutney/gulab jamun
  15. Remembering an old real life joke
  16. A friend calling/texting to say that your fav song is playing and he/she was reminded of you :)
  17. All songs from Wake up Sid (except maybe the Title song. Highly underrated album IMO)
  18. When a song you suddenly hear transports you to that phase of your life when you listened to it most (happens to me, don’t know if its common)
  19. Street musicians ( I’ve said this before, makes you feel your life is a long vacation)
  20. Sharing an umbrella
  21. A warm bear hug
  22. A perfectly situational situational song on the radio
  23. Smell of petrol (I am not running out of things to list. Its really nice! :P)
  24. Getting a letter in the mail ( hasn’t happened in a long time :( )
  25. When a baby keeps staring at you and finally smiles as if in  recognition
  26. Third Floor Tarles :)
  27. Seeing elderly people write cute,innocent comments on FB
  28. Reddit
  29. When you are reminded of a friend seeing a fictional character in a book/movie/TV series
  30. The thought of relaxing at a beach under a beach umbrella with a good book in hand and music in your ears

Okay, now this seems like a nice post to tag people. Wot say,people? :D
