How to be a Happy Chappie (in a Natty Serape)

I was reading Peter Stothard's article about "the twelve things we need in order to be happy" and thought I'd have a crack at it too (adjust to suite gender obviously):

Lliam Amor's 12 Step Happy Program or "Wheeeeeee."

Sticking your nose in a packet of freshly ground coffee (an obvious one but neccessary)

Summer dresses and the occasional glance of intoxicating beauty on public transport

A well stocked second hand bookstore with old theatre programs and cheap records

Fresh sheets, two soft non-allergenic pillows and a tasteful doona cover, mysteriously made each morning

Businessmen who accidentally trip up in the street

An unexpectedly good meal at a last minute restaurant choice

A new black pen

Red Hot Riding Hood - directed by Tex Avery and released on May 8, 1943 by MGM

That Kiss (you know the one)

Wearing a hat that compliments

The Goodies

Hearing a piece of music wafting out of someone’s window and rather liking it but never knowing who it’s by until years later when they play it in that Second hand Bookstore.
