The Happy Tag

Sara of A Free Mind tagged me with this.  I've fallen waaaaaaaaay behind in doing tags lately, though I hope to do a couple of the others I've been tagged with this month -- we'll see if I can scrounge the time.  But anyway, this seems to just require listing some things that make you happy in particular categories, which is quick and fun, so here goes!

everything by Raymond Chandler
the Sherlock Holmes books and stories by A. Conan Doyle
the Nero Wolfe books by Rex Stout
the Anne of Green Gables books by L.M. Montgomery
the Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes books by Laurie R. King


Words:

dream
yearn
enchant
persnickety
selbstverstaendlich (it's a German word that means "obviously")


Movies/TV:

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015)
The Lone Ranger (2013)
And Now Tomorrow (1944)
Gunfight in Abilene (1967)

Scents:

fresh dirt


Songs:

"Mack the Knife" sung by Bobby Darin
"Cracklin' Rosie" sung by Neil Diamond

Misc:

the bubbly, bouncy feeling when a story idea is throwing sparks

And I hereby tag anybody who's feeling happy, who's feeling glum, who's feeling bored, or who has been searching for something to blog about.  All be happy!

  3. Great quote from the Anne book. I saw you were reading it, they are such fun! I just read books one and two last year for the first time. Hopefully this year I'll find some time for the rest of the series.

    I second the daffodils!

    1. Thanks, Annie! I read all the Anne books as a girl, but the only one I'd read at all recently was the first one, so I decided to read all 8 over the course of the year.

      My daffodils are up, I'm pleased to announce! Can't wait for them to bloom :-)

  4. I love "selbstverstaendlich" too :-) My personal favorite German word is "schuechtern" (shy).

    1. Jessica, it's just a fun word to say, isn't it? Sometimes I say, "und so weiter" instead of "et cetera," especially in my head -- another of my faves. "Shuechtern" is good too! Oh, and I like to say "Suppe" instead of "soup" to my kids to make them laugh.

  9. This post is definitely full of happy! I've been needing some quick, easy posts to break up all my reviews here recently, perhaps I'll join in.

    "selbstverstaendlich" I love it! But how do you say it?

    1. Kara, have at it! It's a nice pick-me-up kind of post, and very fast.

      Selbstverstaendlich is pronounced zellbst-vair-SHTAYND-leekh.

Agree or disagree? That is the question...
