-Your pet rat bruxing and/or dozing in your lap.

-Uploading a particularly stubborn page of code and finding it actually WORKS!

-Waking up early on a weekend and remembering you have no pressing engagements.

-A warm bed on a cold morning.

-Having family far enough away so they don't invite themselves over all the time, but close enough for a weekend visit.

Sliding up from a low bass to a highish mid-note on a big Moog modular synth.

Being in the mountains on a perfect day.

Standing under the stars on a moonless, cloudless night somewhere out in the middle of absolute lightless nowhere.

Being at Old Faithful while it erupts, with no one there but you and your wife, under a bright moon, at about 2:00 in the morning.

Seeing something incredible and having someone there to turn to and say "Did you see that?!"

Watching a meteor shower under perfect conditions in a comfortable chair.

Winning the big darts match.

Having someone tell you they love you and you know absolutely, positively that they mean it...then telling that person the same thing back, meaning it just as much.

Watching the Olympics.

Chiefs football.

A perfect bottle of mead.

Putting on old clothes after losing weight and finding that they actually fit.

on finding a $20 in the laundry:

I had a friend who used to, occasionally, mail himself a $20 bill. It only costs $.32, and it was kind of cool for him to randomly get a letter with $20 in it. Sure, it costs a little more than simply finding them in the laundry, but it's a lot more sure.

Standing on the great deck you just finished building on to your house while drinking beer with a couple of buddies.
