    The Pelican is devoid of enjoying those "little things" in life. Nuts make you fat, a burger demonstrates one's "un-evolved" state, and he doesn't even fuck without a rubber with his wife.

    Other than the things listed above, what are your little things in life you enjoy?

    Me? Recently I decided to get the paper delivered to my house. I know, old-school, dying media, etc. But I've never known that feeling, as an adult, of getting the actual physical paper delivered to my home. I've done the online thing since moving out of my parent's joint. I hate to admit it, I got excited the first time I saw the paper on my front walkway. The wife and I spent this past Sunday looking through the paper, cat climbing over what we were reading, cutting coupons, etc. I know, touching, eh?

    So, what are your little things?

    Drinking a cold bottle of beer in a hot shower after a long day at work. I know it sounds odd, and I don't know why, but it is one of the most relaxing things ever.

    An Almond Joy bar. Snapple peach iced tea. Falafel with the right toppings from the Amsterdam Falafel Shop in DC. Spending a few hours in any used book store in America.

    Getting out for a few minutes on my motorcycle, something about it demanding all my focus helps clear my head.

    Totally lame on my part but something I'll do is put in the earplugs and hit play on my tablet and go to sleep to this soundtrack music:

    up here since half the year is winter I really appreciate summer stuff:

    windy day smell before thunderstorm
    rainbows
    thunderstorms
    reading a magazine outside and listening to birds singing
    wearing jorts and bare feet
    milk chocolate
    grilled cheese sandwich with ketchup

    I love a cold beer after a run/long walk.

    I'm going to try a beer in the shower sometime. +Reps

    Ok this will sound strange but I try to go once a week to this Russian/Turkish spa. The rooms are ungodly hot and I have strangers beat me with branches of dried birch leaves and then you jump into a pool of ice water. Then sit there and drink green tea or some vodka. If you ever have a chance to experience it, do it you will have the best sleep of your life.

    With 4 kids and a wife who doesn't really like to see me "doing nothing" as she puts it, I don't really have time to pursue the things I like to do. If I could, I'd play computer mystery games like Escape from Ravenhurst and Wizard 101; watch YouTube for old TV shows and commercials from my youth in the early '70s; going for long bike rides.

    Hearing my daughter laughing.
    Long hot bath with a good book and a glass of wine.
    Perfume
    Flowers
    Thunderstorms

    How can Howard be so miserable when there are so many things to appreciate in life?

    My sweet dog greeting me at the door when I come home at night. I only have pics of him on my phone and I don't know how to get them here.

    You need a mancave. :) Seriously, make time for yourself. Everyone deserves (and needs) it.
