So we've got a pet peeves thread, which is good because everyone needs a place to get off their chest the things that really bug them. But I feel that we also need a place to say and share all the (random) things we like, and maybe find that other people also like those same (random) things. So here's my short list:

I like flying kites.
I like folding paper cranes out of every random piece of paper I can find.
I like swinging in hammocks.
I like reading really good books at 2 am.
I like exploring abandoned buildings.
I like riding horses in the snow.
I like drinking out of straws.

:D

anyone?

I like:

-Crisp, clear sunny blue sky days where you can wear a sweatshirt and Ugg boots, and see the snow on the mountains -- in LA, we get maybe 5 of those a year.
-Driving with the top down on my car on a smogless, warm day, when it isn't too hot for a convertible, or too cold. In LA, we get maybe 5 of those as well.
-Cheering for the Boston Red Sox and USC Trojans, particularly when the beat the NY Yankees or the UCLA Bruins.
-When my hard to get cat Creampuff licks me or nuzzles me -- believe me, that is victory.
-When I can finally play a song that has been kicking my butt for a while.
-When the numbers on the scale go down (as opposed to staying flat or going up).
-Opening the first Christmas present.
-My homemade chocolate chip cookies.
-The frozen mai tais at Keoki's in Kauai and the blended margaritas at El Cholo's in LA.
-A cold rainy day witha warm fuzzy blanket, a cup of cocoa or coffee, and the needy cat on my lap while I watch new episodes of Dexter and Lost.
-Singing out loud to disco music with the windows rolled up on my car. Hey, why do you think I make sure the windows are rolled up? It is a guilty pleasure. Try it.
-A hug from someone I love.
-My iPhone.
-Finding money I forgot about in the pocket of a jacket or jeans.
-My old childhood teddy bears that I can't "bear" to throw away.
-My mom's waffles. I make her make them every year on my birthday.
-Listening to waves crash against a rocky shore.
-My ukuleles, particularly the KoAloha and Kamaka.

So we've got a pet peeves thread, which is good because everyone needs a place to get off their chest the things that really bug them. But I feel that we also need a place to say and share all the (random) things we like, and maybe find that other people also like those same (random) things. So here's my short list:

I like flying kites.
I like folding paper cranes out of every random piece of paper I can find.
I like swinging in hammocks.

:D

anyone?

WOW allot in common!
I like kites too, keep a little one in bag in the glove box for impromptu kite sessions.
I started folding cranes when I was 5 years old so an OLD hand at this. Had a slight cough at our weekly Bible meeting so I took some Halls cough drops, and during the Bible talk as I listened I also made tiny cranes out of the Halls wrappers and left then to mark the pages of favorite scriptures. I know there are at least 3 in there.
I have been a hammock addict since birth my dad being a master net maker, and I have 3 of his handmade hammocks as well as several fishing nets he made for me. I always think of my Dad when I lie in his hammock (may he rest in peace).

I LOVE the ocean whether it be diving, surfing, fishing, sailing or just reading a book at the beach while standing in knee deep water.
I LOVE gaff rigged double ended sail boats, especially ketches though a gaff rigged cutter also a beauty.
I LOVE exploring caves both above ground and underwater.
To go along with all this I LOVE blue skies and calm seas.
LOVE chocolate, love cats, love reading history, love old cars, and WWII vintage aircraft. I love babies, and senior citizens, everyone in between I don't like or trust with very few exceptions.
I love 'ukuleles and slack key guitar both the music and the intruments.
LOVE to eat out but also LOVE to cook, guess I'm looking for inspiration.
LOVE good dark roast coffee made strong, and I love dark beer.
Love any and all seafoods preferable fresh and raw.

I'll stop here for now.
