Ten things that make me happy:

5) the opposite sex
6) poetry
7) all of you guys
8) sunrise
9) writing
10) weekends

And ten bloggers that brighten my day (this is so hard  'cause you always end up leaving people out):

1) Cindy
2) Leah
3) Jennifer
4) Melanie
3) Mae
5) Diane
6) Missy
7) Ari
9) Louis
10) Jon

Melanie and Ari thanks for the nominations, it's been fun!


  1. Congrats on your awards! Fully deserved!

    Talking about Guest Post - the subject it's up to you! Whatever you'd like to write about - write it!

  2. Congrats on the awards, Barry. I'm not surprised at all. Your blog is the brightest part of my day and I have a feeling it's the same way for a lot of others! :)

    Thanks for passing the happy award along to me. I like the image you chose for it. It's cute! Hopefully some of the happiness will rub off on me today. I need it! xoxo

  3. You crack me up!! One should hope you're not wearing a bra!!

    Most men wish for a threesome, but few ever get one. You're not missing much - or so I've heard. . .

  4. MACA, thanks I'll come up with something shortly!

    Jennifer, thanks and you're welcome! You'll always be on that list.

    Ari, I SO knew you couldn't read this without remarking on the threesome. So you've heard huh? lol

  5. I totally ripped this off from your blog...only because I haven't been feeling particularly inspired to write anything this year...but full credit to LIQ :)

  6. Well congratulations Barry - and thank you for passing the OTT award on to me! LOVE it!
    Ms Arscott

    Congrats on your award and than you for passing it on to me. (I think that's what you did!) TOTALLY OOPS if you did not. hahahaha


  8. Tony, feel free to rip me off anytime. I appreciate the credit!

    Ms Arscott, you're quite welcome!

    Sophia, I did indeed pass it on to you and you're welcome, it's well-deserved.

  9. You brighten up EVERYONE'S day Barry:))) Very cute post. And you're not wearing a bra?!?!?!


  10. Oh thank you Barry!! *Hugs* I actually wear a shirt with a huge smiley like this award from the movie Watchmen when I go to the gym. Your cats are absolutely adorable, Sandy has posted pictures. =)

  11. Thanks! I'd completely missed this due to a slightly hectic January so I was just catching up on what I'd missed; always good to read through you're blog!
