5 Things You Are Loving Right Now

Recommended Posts

Just to counteract the other thread which has turned into a general annoyance thread rather than current personal grievances. What are you enjoying about life right now?

 

I'll get it going...

 

CSI - The Vegas one. Just bought the first three series on DVD. I caught this train late but love the show right now. And I'm never one for American tv that isn't a sitcom.

 

Thin Lizzy - Recently I've become obsessed with this band. I might actually buy a CD if this keeps up for long enough!

 

Heather & Minty - She's no oil painting but she's a lovable character and comes out with some brilliant lines "You're not gonna make me do the truffle shuffle are ya?". George Michael gimmick is awesome. Minty is like an uncle I wish I had. Two pleasant character in a happy ending in Eastenders??? Now let's get rid of the Brannings and Mitchells and give Gus a push and we'll be all good!

 

Longer days/Warmer weather - I'm a total summer person. I've had enough winter. When I can have car windows open and it's still light at 8pm I instantly start cheering up. Come on summer!

 

Sticking to my gym routine - I'm proud of myself for this one. It's been going well for almost a full month now and I intend to keep it up and add it it. Maybe even using my pass to use to swimming pools on rest days.

 

How bout you guys?

Ahh man.. I fucking knew this thread was coming. Gay! :blush: ....that said, however....I too am loving the longer, potentially sometimes warmer days.Also, I've been sticking to my gym routine so am pretty proud of that. Can't wait to go kick sand in some nerds' faces this summer. Hypothetically speaking. I probably won't be on a beach at any point though :(I'm feeling very (relatively to normal) engergetic and go-getter-y at the minute - partly from the weather I think, and also as I'm taking a break from smoking green... So that is really enjoyable at the moment (I'll get bored eventually)...

Please, someone sell The big Bang theory to me. I have seen two half-episodes and was unamused to the point of almost being angry. I don't know if I just caught some particularly bad parts of the show but it seemed to be excruciatingly contrived comedy and I absolutely hated it. Five things I'm loving at the moment...1) L'eau D'Issey pour Homme by Issey Miyake. I smell fantastic I do. 2) Mario Kart Wii.3) The freedom I have to waste time on the interweb at this job. Cracked, TheOnion, Wiki-research and this forum, it's a wonder I get anything done. I'm currently five pieces of work away from my daily target, and I easily have time to do at least ten more. Will most likely do about seven over the next three hours. Oh yeah, also loving the flexible working hours. Essentially I work seven and a half hours from when I get here, with half an hour for lunch. So today I'm leaving at 4PM because I got in at 8. Tomorrow if feel the need to get up later, I could do 9-5 or 10-6. 4) The wonderful flirty smiley checkout girl who brightens up my trips to Sainsburys. Was served by her aaages ago and then she vanished for months. This week she was there again, so now I need excuses to go there. Sainsburys is accross the road from my house, so there is a very real and difficult to resist option of stalking her on a daily basis. At least the police will have a reason for my weekly 'random' stops I guess. 5) Rubicon Mango juice. This is more of a lifelong and undying love, but in the run up to and during summer especially I tend to put it away by the gallon. Only problem is, I've actually been off soft drinks for well over a year and drink fruit juice and water almost exclusively. I break this rule for milkshakes when I have to, and I'm not sure what the stance should be on this. It's in a carton, it's a fruit drink, but it sure as hell isn't pure fruit juice. Difficult.

Long story but it's all settled now and i can relax!5. Carrot Juice- Yum!

I'm loving the summer weather too. Yesterday was the first realy sunny day since I moved to Cov, and there was just something realy.........nice about it.I'm loving my super-fast broadband. In 5 days I've managed to download about 200GBs of just about every movie I've ever wanted to see.I'm loving that I only have a few weeks left of uni, and I'm fairly certain I'll pass.I'm seriously loving that there's new Lost tomorrow!I'm just loving life in general at the moment. Over the past 6 months or so it's been going realy well. I have a house, a car, my relationships going great (5 and a half years now), got a group of great friends that I actualy take the effort to stay in touch with, and I'm loving everything about uni. Things are realy in a good place at the moment :) (but if any promotors was to book me then a few more dates wouldn't go a miss :p )

I think you need a strong whiff of the geek to fully appreciate BBT. Leonard's (dude in glasses, played David in Roseanne)inabilty to make his intentions felt to Penny is something that plenty of guys can relate to, and Sheldon's (tall, gangly one) complete lack of social skills is awesome. Likewise, Howard (the pudding bowl haircut dude) and his slimy advances to Penny getting easily shot down is decent stuff.And Penny herself is hot.*** Anyway, my stuff:My new lady - she's awesome. And to think it started in a pretty unconventional way.The Apprentice - sure, it's not as good as other seasons, but it's still The Apprentice.My latest trip abroad - it's going to rock the cock. My fashion sense - it's got a million times better over the past year, to the point that my wardrobe's contents are somewhat presentable.The nWo - I've been watching a whole bunch of videos on YouTube about the Hostile Takeover, from Scott Hall's debut on Nitro to Hulk Hogan turning heel at Bash at the Beach 1996.

1. Life On Mars. Totally passed me by while on TV, but my dad borrowed season 1 off a friend a few months ago. I watched and bloody loved it. Best British tv show in years!!! Now my mate has lent me season 2, just watched the first episode and I have fallen in love with it all over again. Whereas my dad has only watched the first episode of season 1! lol!2. The feeling that warm weather is finally on the way. Yesterday was the first time I had been out this year without wearing long sleeves, just a tshirt. Made me excited that the days of lying in the park with my girlfriend in the sun getting smashed are not far away!3. Rediscovering an old band you used to love on your iPod. The beauty of having 2000 songs on your iPod is that occasionally you come across a song or album you havent heard in years and you realise how much you loved said band. On the bus yesterday, up popped Girls and Boys by Blur. Used to love this type of music and when I got home I proceeded to download every album of theirs I didnt own!4. Learning to drive. When I first started in August, for the first 3 months I was really nervous during my lessons, but over time I have come to love Monday mornings between 9 and 10 (my weekly lesson!). Took me a long time to warm to my instructor as well (near-60 year old John) but when I finally pass my test, I'm really gonna miss our weekly football chats and him telling me 'Eyes on the road, not on the breasts!' whenever we pass an attractive female! Top bloke! Got my test 23rd May, really hope I pass (even though I have no money to buy a car! lol).5. Whose Line Is It Anyway? I've always seen bits and pieces of this show over the years, but I've been totally hooked on both the UK and US versions since I discovered them on Dave and Five US. Both are brilliant, but the US show is a lot better, mainly thanks to Colin, Ryan and Wayne. I have been annoying my girlfriend and her folks by only talking in questions recently!

Oh, shit... How could I forget??Possibly the most important thing in my life right now - Alphonso Mango season has started. Or rather, they are now down to a reasonable price, as the season started a few weeks back...This particular type of Indian mango is easily the tastiest type of mangos that exists (by a good long way, too), but the season sadly only lasts about 2 months, tops. I'll be having a couple of these a day for this whole period.I urge you all to try them, although I think you only get them in specialist Indian foodstores.

1 - Mario Kart Wii (In particular, Rainbow Road... how quick an opinion can change of that track...)2 - Refereeing (Got at least one show per weekend for just over a month, gonna be goooooood)3 - New house (Okay, it's not exactly new now, been here a couple of months, but it's great living here, and our git of a flatemate is out in just over a week, 'tis gonna be great as we don't have to worry about stuff, and the landlord is a great guy.)4 - Jim Davidson's Sinderella (Expected it to just be smutty crap, but I got it cheap ages ago, finally watched it a couple of days back, 'tis effing hilarious)5 - Within Temptation (Still an awesome band, and one I never seem to get bored of listening to)It was harder thinking up good things than bad things... guess I need to work harder at making things better then.
