    Girls laughing spontaneously, it just makes me melting like an ice cream in august. They can be ugly as a kick in the balls (as we kindly say here in Italy), but when they laugh they become to my eyes the most gorgeous creatures on earth.

    Coffee powder between my teeth (ecstatic)

    Myself (there's no reason at all, let alone a good one, but I still do :D :p )

    Edit: nice hats on female heads. I just love a pretty female head in a fancy hat.

    [​IMG] I like calluses from playing guitar. The harder and longer you play the more pain, the better. lol, shows you've been practicing too much. Other than that, I hate pain for the most part.

    I like to leave things to the eleventh hour and then undertake a relentless marathon effort to get them done on time.

    I like being pushed beyond the accepted norms of human mental endurance, so long as it is me that is doing the pushing.

    I like staying up for thirty two hours and then sleeping for the next 16 hours (with a loo break after eight).

    I like putting on my most threadbare, torn and sometimes dirty clothes to tackle building repair and maintenace work, and then observing the reactions of strangers, which appear to look upon me as a completely different species to the reasonably well dressed person I normally am.

    I like the smell of broken glass.

    I like spiders.

    I like old and crappy computer equipment that was the state of the art in its day, because of its history, not its current usefulness.

    I like all computer generated animation no matter how childish.

    [​IMG] hmm... I like a lot of odd things.

    Probably the oddest thing I like is the little strippie bit on bottles - you know you get bottles of drink, hte plastic bottles where you have to pull a strip of plastic so the lid can come off. For some strange reason I like them.

    I like slugs and snails and spiders and frogs and stuff like that, most animals.

    I like watching things like undead and stuff, things falling apart.

    I like tamagotchis and cyber pets, I have over 20, the last one ran out of batteries last night. I will get batteries for them all one day.

    I like fiddling with watches and things like that, I like fiddling with them and mixing parts from different watches and things.

    I like shiny things, I'm a little magpie, am I ;)

    Pirates (Pirate movies, books, stories, cutlasses, boats, whatever... I've been slightly obsessed since 3rd grade and I don't really know why. Everything from the Pirates they talk about in the Salem, MA exhibits to Pirates of the Carribean and the Peter Pan pirates)

    Native American/"Indians" (same deal with the pirates sort of so including things like mythic tales and stories about wolves and stuff) -- but only (North)Eastern ones like the Hurons and I didn't really know why but I recently found out that one of my great-grandmothers was a Huron

    Throwing bouncy balls off of weird things (3rd floor balconies and in the middle of theater seats where I can watch them roll down but not really know where it'll end up, being my favorite places)

    Moons and stars.

    Oh! And Zorro. I'm really obsessed with the old Zorro TV show and I have no idea why. (He's a classic example of a 2nd edition peasant-hero paladin though)

    And lastly, Disney. I have this strange loyalty to nearly all things Disney that I don't really understand.

    Been outside on a nice fine spring morning just after a light hour or so of rain.
    Life.
    Night.
    Day.
    The times inbetween night and day.
    Darkness.
    Light.
    And the outside world.
