11). Breakfast buffets (especially ones with waffle stations).

12). Baby goats in pyjamas.

13). The word couscous. It’s just so fun to say. Couscous. Couscous. Heehee

14). Sudocrem. There’s never a bad time to be grateful for Sudocrem.

15). Cutting toast into soldiers.

16). Space Jam and the fact that its website hasn’t changed since 1996.

24). Videos of puppies and babies being friends.

25). Eating cereal at weird times of the day.

26). The website where you donate free rice to people by playing games.

27). Bikes. Bikes are so great I would turn this into a bike appreciation post if I could. They get you places so quickly, they cost nothing to run and it’s like free exercise. Bikes don’t get enough love let’s hear it for bikes.

28). Buying marshmallows just put them in hot chocolate.

34). The little gold strip of plastic on Kinder Buenos that makes them really easy to open for immediate consumption.

35). The fact that Green Eggs and Ham only exists coz Dr Seuss wrote it to win a bet against his publisher which was that you can’t write a book with less than 50 words. What a jammy bastard, love it.

36). When people offer you food, then tell you to finish it altogether.

39). Those Slide The City things. We live in an age where you can ride a waterslide the length of a whole city. How beautiful is that.

40). Drunk girls complimenting other drunk girls in nightclub bathrooms. I just love that we have this instinct to tell girls we don’t know how beautiful they are and that the lad who won’t shift them is a dick.

41). Usain Bolt’s name. He’s the fastest guy in the world and his ACTUAL NAME is Bolt. This isn’t talked about half as much as it is.

47) When you stop and think about how INSANE caterpillars turning into butterflies is. THINK ABOUT IT. They’re just wriggly little hairy guys then next thing they know they’re super beautiful and can fly and shit. Like, do you think when they go into their cocoon they actually know what’s gonna happen to them? Or do they just think they’re going to sleep and next it’s like oh my GOD what the fuck is happening. Wild.

48). Dogs breaking Guinness World Records for doing human things

49). Saying ‘bless you’ to people when they sneeze. I know it originates from back in the plague days where people would say it coz they thought you were gonna die if you sneezed but it’s gas that we still do it. Now it’s just this really weird polite thing we all do, even with people we don’t know that well it’s amazing.

57). When you buy new clothes and you look really good in them.

59). When you’re completely alone and allowed to sing as loud as you want.

63). Someone making you a cup of tea when you need it most.
