Default Room 010

I'm aware the separation of Room 101 from 1984 (a book I've never read) is criminal to some literature lovers, potentially....BUT. 101 is for us to moan about things to send there, Room 010 is for things we wish to revel in, enjoy and bestow a pleasant experience to.

This isn't a room to be a **** in. Because it's my wonderful idea as a more pleasant, upbeat thread (hahahahaha is that possible?) then as usual, I get final say on if your 'thing' goes into Room 010. Most will. I'm a positive guy.

I'll start, just a couple to get going.

The smell of petrol.
Bacon.
February, early morning golf in Dubai. Cool, sunny, bit of dampness in the air, quiet, few mates. Total heaven.
Bacon.
The V8 engine.
Bacon.

Sunsets on the ocean. Witty one liners.
The glugging sound of a pouring bottle.

Are you currently drunk, on a boat, watching a sunset with a comedian?

Great three.

Interestingly enough, don't want to laugh through the sunset. Sunsets deserve reverence and a contemplative mood.

Agreed. Totally. In fact, streaky piss bacon should be in 101.
