So I've got a sort of book series idea but I need some info which is why I'm doing this poll. I will not use anything said, I will only use the poll results to help me along with my idea.

If an option you think should be listed in the poll isn't then please say what that is in a comment. Anyways thanks for the help in advance =D.

We couldn't check off more than one item so I didn't vote.

snuggling makes me happy :)


(not with just anyone, though. I have standards.)

Forbidding use of all emoticons would be a good start.

It makes me happy to do the little things that drives everyone else so crazy that they wish no one would ever do.

Because I can't resist a line drawn in front of me, and being told not to cross.

Unless there's a cliff...

I voted for love.

Because I love sex, family and all the other stuff.

None of the above. God is it for me. For a while it was some of the other stuff, but not so much any more. They're nice though. :)

the secret to life and the meaning of life is that only one thing makes a person truly happy;

other people.(/person)

unfortunately it's the only thing that makes people truly unhappy as well. *sigh*


to illustrate this point, (to pre-empt the 'nature argument') think castaway or Robinson Crusoe

I voted for success. :) Self explanatory.

I like 'simple pleasures'. It includes more.

Of the above, I'd say Love, but I don't mean just romantic love at all. So 'family' wouldn't be separate. But 'love' doesn't include just plain old fun that you can have alone -- or intellectual pursuits, etc.

'Simple pleasures' can include love, I'd think. That's my 2cents, anyway :)

But if I can't have it all, I'll take a chocolate bar.

Where's the Orlando Bloom option? I thought that one came standard with every AW poll.

ETA: Fixed it.

A satisfying mix of all (or maybe even only some) of them. I could live without fame for instance.


But I voted sex, cos it's fun and good for you and fun and it helps you connect with your other half when you're in a long term relationship/love thing and it's fun..did I say that already? Besides, it looked lonely cos no one had voted for it.

I picked family...cuz mah family rocks.

Gerry is the new Orlando Bloom.

Oh, I see. In that case, I've added him to the poll to give Mr. Bloom a little competition.

Well thanks for all the input so far guys. Id assume this post is in an ok place, otherwise id think someone would have moved it by now. Sorry I forgot to put Orlando Bloom and Gerard Butler in the poll, big mistake. Oh and i suppose i should have tossed in a religion option.

Life makes me happy. The ability to breathe makes me happy. Just existing makes me happy. I live by this:

There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.

In agreement with HJ here, as well.

I was going to add, you missed the option of spirituality.
