Happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I possess.

Here a few of the things that made me happy this year:
  • Solving the spy game at Redemption with exalted_mugwump, alicamel, and various others.
  • Acting in Blake's 7 Wobblevision at Contemplation (directed by steverogerson).
  • Successfully organising I'm Sorry I Haven't a Robot at Contemplation (presented by asphodeline).
  • Dancing with tlanti and others in the Ceilidh at ConFounding Tales!
  • Realising I'd accidentally sprayed Fenchurch the wrong shade of blue but it actually looked nicer than the colour I'd intended to use.
  • Arriving at the Stage Hotel in Leicester after Fenchurch's first long trip since I got her back on the road.
  • Directing Torchwood Wobblevision, featuring dougs, ang_grrr, surliminal, tlanti, etc. at Year of the Teledu.
  • Bacon butties at midnight on Orkney after having driven up from Land's End.
  • Being on the winning team of Finding Uranus at Satellite 1.
  • Seeing Henry V performed by the RSC in Stratford.
  • Dancing at the Madness gig in Liverpool.
  • The finale of season 3 of the new Battlestar Galactica.
  • Walking along the seafront at Southend with hermi_nomi.
  • Watching Stardust at the cinema.

This isn't a meme (or if it is, I just created it), but I'm interested to know: what made you happy this year?
