11 things that make me very happy meme

(stolen from shioneh)

11 things that make me very happy

1.) Letters in the mail!!! THANK YOU aubkabob I GOT YOUR LETTER I LOVE YOU!!!!!! ;-D I also got your postcard eternitywaiting, I laughed muchly at your cuteness. ;-)
2.) Long deep talks with fascinating people.
3.) Kanika's rare cuddly moods.
4.) Spending naked time with friends. There's something so free about being naked... And of course that only happens when the friend in question is comfortable with mutual nudity, so this includes love of those friends.
5.) curvygirls!!!
6.) growing bolder and more confident and secure day by day.
7.) long thoughtful comments.
8.) reading my flist and seeing my lj name. I'm a sucker for shout-outs, okay? But only if they have a point. Like if you got my postcard!!! ;-)
9.) Ben's incredible strength and generosity.
10.) new awesome music!!!!!!
11.) coffee!!!

And I tag acid_burns, untoldeuphemism, vineofcrescendo, phrankenstyne, and twisteddaydream!!!

I love to wander around the house naked, if it's warm enough anyway and no one's around.
belenen ══╣vivacious╠══
I KNOW!!! We were meant to be naked, after all -- it's only natural!
I am not Lost

I love this happy meme thing going around. I've been tagged by someone on my flist so it's probably my turn to do it.
belenen ══╣vivacious╠══
It's so lovely to read positivity -- I love memes like this. ;-)
untoldeuphemism ══╣╠══
in no particular order:

meeting celebrities
feeling loved
feeling important
feeling useful
Chinese food
catching up on LJ
getting to know interesting people
a good hair day
feeling at peace with myself [this happens so rarely it's worth noting...I've always found it very difficult and painful to be me...and in case I forgot to say thanks for your comment I found your suggestion helpful, I thought I'd add that here]
belenen ══╣curious╠══
meeting celebrities! Does that happen often for you?

I'm glad you found the suggestion helpful -- really glad. ;-)

It doesn't happen often but when it has, it has been pretty cool.

I met musician/poet Jim Carroll in Los Angeles in 1991 at his spoken word show when I sat in the front row. I have a photo of us that a crazy ex of mine used to threaten to throw away because he was jealous that I was smiling so wide in that photo and I never looked that way in photos with him.

[In CA] I saw Leonardo DiCaprio once at a table at the restaurant next to where I was and I overheard him talking with his friends about The Basketball Diaries which was a film written about the aforementioned Jim Carroll. I wanted to speak to him about it so badly but the friends I was with refused to let me go since they would have been embarrassed if I were acting like some star struck fan girl. They actually physically prevented me from going over there.

I once saw actor Josh Evans who plays really small roles in films but because I am a movie buff I happen to know who he is. I wanted to approach him as we were both dining at the same restaurant [in CA] but he was not alone [he was with a guy] and I was not alone and the person I was with was not too keen on me saying anything so I gave up and didn't. Being that he is not super famous or anything like that, he probably would have gotten a total kick out of me knowing who he was. I really regret not having approached him.

On December 30 1994 I met actress Patricia Arquette in New Orleans. We walked around and shopped and talked for THREE hours. I have a photo of us together. She was so awesome. This is definitely one of my top 10 experiences. She was alone so that made it much easier.

In 1995 I saw actor Danny Aiello at a mall in Miami shopping with his family. I went up to him to say hello and ask him for his autograph. He was very tall, his hands were huge and he told me he has a sister named Anna.

Author Anne Rice at a booksigning in 1995 when I asked her to autograph my jeans and she told me I was 'destinted for greatness'. I also met her husband, poet Stan Rice, who chatted with me and the girl I was with about 'the MTV generation'. He's deceased now.

Author John Berendt in 1996 at the master class he taught in New Orleans. He autographed my book and the other leg on the pair of jeans Anne Rice autographed.

1997, music/poet/actor Henry Rollins autographed my brown Guess jeans and obliged me with a hug when I asked him for one.

And on this trip to the UK to visit Ian, I just met actress Keira Knightley while waiting to get on the plane. I wish I could have actually had a real conversation with her but she was with someone and I am always uncomfortable with an audience.

I've had random sightings of people near where I was but I never interacted with them: tennis player Andre Agassi at the waiting room in the airport [back in 86 or 87 when he was not so famous], this actor whose name I forgot but he has Down's Symdrome and played a character named Corky on some TV show, late night talk show host Conan O'Brien standing behind me at a baggage claim [perhaps 1997]. He was extremely tall and soooooo good looking! He looks so much better in person than on TV. And romance novel cover model turned I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spokesperson Fabio once sat at the table next to me in a restaurant.

That's all I can think of right now. I think I got everyone.
