Posted:I'm sipping a deliciously rich hot Cocoa made by the Mexican lady down the street (hints of cinnamon) and it's cold out there and kinda blustery.

What recent simple (G-rated!) simple pleasures have you had lately?

Posted:This past Saturday was full of simple pleasures! I spent the unseasonably warm afternoon in the park playing with poi & hoops & balls with some friends. I learned two new cj moves.

Checking out all the hot guys in the park throwing frisbees and footballs with their shirts off. ubbangel (It would have been fun to scam on all the hotties with you, Doc wink)

Later that night, my Burning Man crew got together on our artcar and we drove around the City, parking in various random places and did karaoke and danced in the streets.

The activities themselves were fun, but the best (and simplest) part was spending time with people I love.

Posted:Reading posts from other HoPpers about how much they love chocolate spread from the jar, and the Avatar cartoons, plus all the other stuff that I like doing but that people I work with think is strange. hug

My simple pleasure for last week was going out at lunch time with two people I hardly know from work and getting quite drunk and merry for the first time in ages, then failing to return to work. It was naughty, but now I've got to know two people I work with, we didn't get busted by anyone and it was good fun.
