Happiness A-Z: H

If you don't know what's going on, go here, or just keep reading.  It's fairly self-explanatory. :)


Hawaii-I love living here.  It's warm and it's green, which were pretty much my main requirements when we moved from Nebraska, and now our friends visit us more!

Happiness-Well, duh, right?  Otherwise what's the point behind my Happiness A-Z project?  I'm not averse to wallowing in self-pity every once in a while or feeling sad when I'm sad, but overall, I like being happy.  

Heat-I HATE being cold.  It pisses me off.  

Humor/Hilarity-I like to laugh, especially the kind where you are laughing so hard you are crying and can't make any noise except for the occasional snort or wail.  This is the best if not always the most graceful!  "Recent" occurrences (recent being loosely interpreted to mean within the last 2-1/2 years) involve cheese, Salamander Man, and Tickle Me Almo.  I've told you my cheese story, which I realize is probably not that hilarious to anyone but me, but it was funny at the time.  Perhaps someday I will tell you about Salamander Man and Tickle Me Almo.  I bet you can't wait! 

Honesty-I've always been a pretty honest person, and I expect others to be the same way.  Sure, I'll tell the occasional white lie to spare someone's feelings or avoid a pointless confrontation, and there have been occasions where I might have exaggerated my inability to work due to some physical ailment (although, to be fair, I don't think I've ever outright lied about being ill, just the extent to which I thought it would affect my ability to make it in to and be productive at work.)  I have called in tired before.  It's a long drive, and I did not want to risk falling asleep at the wheel, and I didn't want to lie about being sick.  What?  It's a long, winding drive, and I didn't want to risk my life or anyone else's!  See?  Very honest.      

Houses-I am very happy about the fact that I have one right now.

Hounds-Traditionally, I think of Bassets and Bloodhounds (awwww!), but after reading about Jay's lovely Greyhounds, I see that they fit into the goofy, lovable hound category too. 

H sounds at the beginning of words-We are not in France, people; it's humor, not umor, historic, not istoric, and some other one that I've been hearing a lot of lately but can't think of. 
Of course, there are a few exceptions to the rule like hour, honesty, and herb, (unless you're English, in which case you can say herb and pretty much anything else you want because it always sounds adorable.)

Moving from Nebraska to Hawaii must have been a huge change! I mean, it was probably a welcome change, but still.

I'm envious! Hawaii is incredible, and the people are way cool. If I lose my house, can I move in with you?

Dreamybee said...

MIke-Yes, it was a huge change, but, as you said, a welcome one.

Chartrooose-Sure, come on out!

Well, that was a fun post! I enjoyed the cheese post, too!

Thanks for the link! These hounds are certainly wonderful dogs! :)

Hi Jay, I'm glad you stopped by! Also, glad that the cheese post is amusing to someone other than myself!

Hounds are wonderful, aren't they? A bit stubborn at times, but they're so darn sweet. :)
