Why Do You Have To Be So Cute?

Top Five: Things That Make Me Go 'Awwwww!'.

5. Super Smiley Sports Folks.
They seem to be a bit of a rarity sometimes, so if there is no-one I am supporting in a 'Wooo! GB!' kind-of fashion, I always route for the smiliest one. A particularly good time to coo at smiley athletes is in the line-ups on the track before a race.

4. Baby-Sized Shoes.
They are just so tiny! Converse and Ugg Boots are the best.

3. Marriage Proposal Acceptances.
Doesn't matter if it is in real life or not. One of my personal favourites was at Wembley Arena when Paramore called a guy and his girlfriend up on stage so that he could propose to her in front of a sell-out crowd, which was then followed by the band serenading them. A cynical person could suggest that she only accepted under peer pressure, but I prefer to think more optimistically than that.

2. Little Kids in Tae Kwon-Do Doboks.
Every Thursday as the Leisure Centre, little children are dressed in their doboks ready for their martial arts training. Normally the tops are too big so they look really baggy, and it kind of looks like they are in their PJs.

1. Baby Animals.
Surely everyone loves baby animals, right? I can't limit it down to any one particular animal. but unless they are an insect, I'm probably going to think its cute.

Let's Get Physical

Top Five: Gym Related Things

5. Perving Potential.
Not a sole reason for attending, but one of the perks.

4. Quiz Shows.
The gym which I attend has 4 TVs to chose from, and one of which is bound to be showing at least one Quiz Show for you to play along with. My personal favourite is Pointless, but the one with the giant 2p arcade machine is a close second.

3. The Drive To The Gym.
Pretty much without fail, always attended by my Gym Buddy. Its a good time for us to either have a whinge about work related matters, or for me to force her to listen to something cheesy and/or age inappropriate and then laugh at the disapproving face I get in return.

2. Weight Loss.
Although no massive changes have been made, this was the whole point of going in the first place.

1. iPod Time.*
I am very unlikely to complain if there is an opportunity for me to put on a pair of headphones and turn the music up really loud. Failing that, playing the Scott Mills Daily Podcast always makes me giggle to myself, and although I risk looking like a crazy person, it does make the time go faster. Sometimes too fast.

*other MP3 players are available. I just don't own one.
