Raindrops on roses
Whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles
Warm woolen mittens
Blowjobs
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

I'll give you twelve...

a long walk through a pleasant but unfamiliar area - and then home to a bath or some tea and cake OR BOTH

blasting a very favourite song loudly through headphones (especially when you haven't heard it for a while)

a train journey abroad

coming out of a film (that you weren't sure about) thinking 'fuck that was EXCELLENT'

a big bellylaugh - and then it comes back to you later and you laugh heartily AGAIN

watching wee kids playing - hiding from each other and giggling, calling their parents daft names like "Mister and Missus Poo-Poo", that kind of thing

waking up naturally - no alarms nor nothing, and probably being pleasantly surprised by how late it is - so you're 'slept out', as the Germans say

a little bit of revenge or similar - witnessing some wanker you work with have a load of plates fall on his head, for example

meeting someone really cool for the first time

the feeling of mind-expansion when you finally fully grasp a tricky concept OR work out a difficult piano piece or similar

the feeling of satisfaction when you come back from a big shop and stuff your fridge full and know you've got a big choice of very nice things for a few days

water fights - until everybody is drenched and they don't care (and are probably out of control laughing)

That moment when an album clicks

The first mouthful of an ice cold coke on a hot day

When you actually have a decent and meaningful conversation with a total stranger

The purr of a cat

The moment you arrive home after a holiday and put the kettle on

When an attractive lass eyes you up

lawrence of Arabia on the big screen

Cup of tea and a biscuit

A dip in a warm ocean

Seeing a dog with his head stuck out a window

Listening to music on ecstasy

Really great nan bread

Watching some politican you hate lose their seat

In order of preference?

To be honest, I don't really care for the taste, probably shouldn't be there.

Modern chrome kettles are a big improvement.
