Went and saw my aunt at a rehab center (she fractured a disc towards the middle of her back) which I actually like going to, everyone there seems nice and they keep a decent amount of birds in the waiting room which is pretty neat. Came home from work and saw a package in my room with Gojira's album "The Way of All Flesh" inside, which I'm enjoying, and I'm off from my summer job for two weeks.

That's great bro. I used to be a Prep Cook at a physical rehabilitation center & they just had a really classy bird-cage donated.

I loved working there & making the patients happy. Food is one of the best ways to directly effect someones life. I hope your Aunt is doing well.

What made me smile today, strangely enough, was when my Dad called me out of the blue. It was just a random phone call about the new car he bought, but it was great considering the relationship we have.

Also, I am now watching Firefly and cooking steak, which is also pretty smile worthy.

I love steak & I've never seen Firefly. I know I should watch Serenity soon. Is Firefly better then Serenity?

I'm really happy to hear about your Dad calling you Anthony :D It's great to hear from family, especially when they don't call much. (: (: (:

My brother from Maryland called today to check on me after he heard about the Aurora massacre. Family is very important.

So I thought maybe we could all share something that has made us happy today. (:

I just downloaded Steam for the first time today, because Indie Game The Movie is $4.99, and I really want to listen to the Super Meat Boy commentary.

What has the lovely GB community been up to today? I'm sincerely happy that you're all well & safe. Share with me what has made you smile today.

It'd be nice if everyone would keep it appropriate please & thank you.

-and may the force be with you.

This thread seriously made my day. Message boards can be so excruciatingly negative.

I'm lazing around with my girlfriend, playing Spelunky. We're going to see Dark Knight Rises late tonight.

YEAH BUDDY!!!! I feel great every time someone says I made them happy. I feel great that this has been a positive experience & didn't devolve in any childish trolling.

I love girlfriends who are supportive of our nerdy lifestyle. I got my ladybug to play Journey when it released & that infected her with the gamer virus. ;D

I've still been debating whether to purchase Spelunky or Fez. Any input buddy?

I really want to go see TDKR but I don't want to have to fight for a good seat, so I'm holding off.

Do you like Star Trek: The Next Generation at all?

I'll post what made me actually happy today. This mourning I bought the game syndicate, and I've been having fun playing it. Its like dues ex meets mirrors edge. Its pretty much corporate thuggin....

I'm glad you've come to the light-side! I've never played Syndicate, have you started it yet, what makes it special?

Are there any cool mechanics in-game or an interesting story? I'm glad you've been having a good day bro.

@NegativeCero said:

This also made me smile. I hope everyone is having a nice day too. I went to the doctor today and enjoyed rain that gave a break from the heat.

I love the rain. I especially love warm rain! I'm sincerely happy this made you smile. I knew the internet wasn't a malevolent place. ;D

Everything okay at the doctor's?

@BraveToaster said:

Today I found out that I'm eligible for a grant. "Free" money is something to be happy about.

Is it for college? What are you studying?

I went to the doctor today, got blood drawn, and received some allergy medicine which will hopefully help. heh. An exciting day indeed. Been able to watch some Major League Gaming StarCraft II Spring Arena today, as well. That has been fun.

Been really interested today by all of the discussion regarding the shooting. In light of it, I hope to get to go to see "The Dark Knight Rises" sometime in the next week. I've been looking forward to it, and it is my personal belief that violence and extremism should never dictate your life. Madmen won't run our lives or limit our happiness.

Glad you're safe, too, duder. You have a good week.

We as the human race can only counteract extreme violence with extreme kindness & concern for one another. (:

I really want to go see TDKR too, I Googled which theaters can properly show it, there are only two in my state. lol

What do you have allergies too? My gf has SUPER allergies. I set her pills out for her everyday. (:

& on a smaller note: you're braver then I good sir. I've never had blood drawn. I hope to overcome my fear & donate sometime soon.

I like this thread, let's all cyber-hug.

*hug*

THIS MADE MY DAY!!!!!! Thank you so much!!!! Look how happy Bane's eyes look!!!!!

I mowed the lawn for my great grandmother this morning, watched Pulp Fiction with my brother, ate pizza, got on forums, played Torchlight, now I'm back on forums, and now I've got a good mind to leave them again and finish off Doom 3.

So, yeah, not really a bad day. My college called and e-mailed me to kindly tell me that I need to give them some money when they've thus far not even so much as warned me that it's past due, which kind of pissed me off but kind of is my own fault because I knew the due date for next semester's fees were coming up anyway; this just brings it to the forefront of my mind.

Here's a good question: Why is it that we can list all of the positive things we've done today in one sentence but feel like taking up the same space to tell only one negative thing?

Because we're so happy all the time, we stop appreciating how great things truly are, so we notice the unbalance more then just appreciating how great life usually is.

It always makes me feel great to help out my Grandma. (: I never finished Doom 3 - I had a hard time finding all the PDAs.@zombiebigfoot said:

On-topic though, my day has been spent cleaning on-and-off while blasting music. It's meh.

It always feels good once you're finished cleaning, you get to sit back & admire all your hard work.

Is the music keeping you happy? (:

@CaptainObvious said:

@jNerd: No problem man, just make sure to play at least the first hour to get the story really going.

Done! I'll give it an hour to get good. (: What's your favorite part of the game? Is it a game-play feature or plot point?

@Dixego said:

@jNerd: How could I not post, when you're such a nice guy!

I was a little worried this thread was going to turn into a troll-fest. (: Thanks for being constructive. (:

@Napalm said:

I bought some water and milk. I was out of toasted honey oat cereal. I bought two boxes, and had two big bowls, and chugged the honey-sweet milk afterwards. That made my day.

The sugary milk at the bottom of a bowl of cereal is one of life's simple pleasures! A++++

P.S. I just tried out chocolate Cheerios for the first time. I give them an A- (;

No man can be that happy. Even Jesus wasn't that happy.

You can be, when you're high. OP seems like a good duder.

He is a good dude a happy one. If the world was coming to an end he will still be happy. He is the most happiest man in the universe. I love you OP! share your happiness with the world.

Mission accomplished.

Awwwwwwww........ (: I have a great group of friends from GiantBomb on Google+. We have a great chatroom (Messenger/Huddle) called Duder Island.

I feel like I enjoy my time with them so much, we've become such good friends, I forget to come to the forums sometimes.

@ShaggE said:

I just woke up a couple of hours ago (trying to undo the sleep schedule screwup from my last bout of insomnia), but spending time with my rats always makes me happy, so tonight is off to a good start.

That's great, at least you have nice pets, what are there names? I've never had rats, when I was younger I had a mischievous hamster. lol

I went to the batting cages with a few friends today, and there was a women softball team there practicing.

Hahaha, I thought you said BATTLING cages. I was definitely excited for you to elaborate! :P

It's the simple things in life... (: lol

@jNerd: The single player is the meat and bones of this game, I highly recommend it.

Sweet, I'll definitely give it a try as soon as I finish Max Payne 3. Thanks for sharing duder, I would've never played it without your recommendation@Dixego said:

@jNerd: I'm probably gonna lurk the GiantBomb forums for the rest of the night. But I'm OK with that.

That sounds like a good night to me. (: Thanks for being kind enough to post. I just wanted to lighten the spirits around here & I feel like this has been a positive experience so far.

Then again we're only on page 2. (;
