10 things that make me smile

Best subway station ever!
Whimsical subway stations that make me want to stay underground,
weee!
flying children,

crazy window displays,
Artist workshop
teaching fun art workshops,
buying alligator gloves for the sole purpose of entertaining kids while riding the subway,
Husband's Resting Area
girly stores that understand men,
moo's crazy tail,

silly nails,
11-6-09 145
stealing someone's camera, taking goofy pictures of my dad,
11-6-09 149
and then quietly returning it,
flying away with the wind
and flying away on a windy, rainy day.
