reasons to be cheerful, a gratitude post

Plaid, which livelies up the place
Francis Ponge, who reinvented
The Ampersand, shorter & stylisher than ‘and’
Investigative journalism
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, which I am all over
Foreign movies, dubbed or subbed
Good hygiene, always appreciated
Starbucks in my town!
Oskar Schindler, who lived down the street
Understandable IKEA instructions
Subject-verb agreement, please
Never having gone to Las Vegas, a mercy confirmed after my mother went and came back sorry

song of the day: oooh child

Laughing! And grateful for your list!

I have often wondered about German hygiene and where it is placed in the scheme of things. They're good at just about everything, so I suppose it's up there at the top of the pecking order as well!

Surely you don't place Starbucks above Dunkin Donuts in the Coffee Universe?

Hygeine, we gots it.
What we don't got is Dunkin' Donuts, and better off without, I suspect.

Dunkin Donuts is New England's coffee of choice -- born and bred here. Unlike Starbucks coffee, it does not taste of burnt toast....

Great list. Great music and 70's duds.
