Happy List! – March 31, 2011

Things that make me happy… RIGHT NOW!

– BB Bats and Kits. These little pieces of hardened taffy (on a stick for BB Bats and wrapped squares for Kits) take me back to visits to my Great Grandmother, Nana. I lived in the small town of Royersford, PA until I was 5; my Nana lived a few blocks away in a seniors apartment building. My mom also did most of the residents’ hair there, so we visited a lot. The office lady always had BB Bats ready and waiting for me. I still get all giddy when I find them in an old fashioned candy shop. Banana and Strawberry all the way!

– Interesting stories from the older generation. Check out Albert Doumar. Still making hand-rolled ice cream cones… every day for 70 years. (!)

– Flash mobs. There are times when I can waste hours looking these up on YouTube and wishing I was a part of one. I think the first one I saw was the Sound of Music done in a train station in Antwerp, Belgium. They’ve become so big that they’ve been a plot point on several shows like Glee and Modern Family.

Tonight, Fox debuted their new series MOBBED which takes ordinary people who have a secret to share with a loved one (think proposal, baby, etc.) and develop their news into a full fledged flashmob of surprise! Serious tears. Instead of being annoyed and depressed about watching yet another happy couple in this world get engaged, I found myself so full of joy and hope. I can only hope to find someone that would love me THAT much… acting, choreo, and of course, the SURPRISE. Life is all about surprises with me, no matter how small… or HUGE in this case! AMAZING.

Surprise someone you love, and keep thinking of the things that make YOU smile! 🙂
