I love juxtapositions

I love it when there's a ukelele in a rock band.

I love it when a child is the best thing in a predominantly adult play.

I love it when you find a Japanese park in the middle of the very English West London.

I love it when someone is actual civil and helpful during rush hour traffic.

I love it when you hear a French accent pierce the severe halls of the British Museum.

I love it when you hear a Maths graduate wax lyrical about the subtle joys of Erik Satie.

I love it when you find a blooming flower in the midst of concrete and litter.

I love it when an old person uses Twitter.

I love it when you see your teacher/boss/parent drunk. 

The little things in life that challenge your expectations, that shatter your prejudices, that remind you that you don't know everything about the world.

LOL, "I love it when an old person uses Twitter."

That right there straight up confuzzles me. My parents barely know how to use a cell phone and there are people eons older blogging and using Facebook.

Cool post and I'd love to see what would happen if there was a zen garden right in the middle of Times Square.

I love to see that things are going well for you lately. You know how I can tell? Because our observations tend to reflect our mood and these are all great/happy/wonderful observations :)

I liked this happy post :) I also love when old people use Twitter, or Facebook, or even computers in general - when we first moved to Canada my nan went to the library and learned how to email and use a keyboard. They were always unpunctuated but completely adorable emails!!

I personally hate seeing parents/bosses/etc drunk. And I wouldn't want them to see me drunk either! :)

I love the Kyoto Garden as well! It's absolutely beautiful.

And is that a real polaroid? Because I would love love love to get some film, but I thought they had run out...

I am about a month late in response now, but since I am now catching up in the Reader, this was a very cheery post and I love it!

Also, completely agree...juxtapositions are nice and interesting. It's like life's little reminders that things never have to be the way they seem.
