Thumbs up what's the nicest thing you've ever done recently?

go on, show off!

here's mine:
i was djing recently in a cafe while a street party was going on and i
was kinda in the cafe but playing out to the street. there were a bunch
of people dancing around and it was a very nice scene, but the icing
on the cake was that while i was playing a thunderstorm was approaching,
so there was a backdrop of lightning and thunder which gave the whole
thing an extra buzz.

so what about you?

I do volunteer work for an organization in Iceland that helps poor single parents.

Donated money to cancer research after my friend lost his father to lung cancer this spring.

Last Saturday: three hours of girl chat while bobbing up and down in hot mineral springs surrounded by mountain scenery, dense forest, and thick fog created by the rain dripping down on our heads and keeping us cool. The time raced by. Plenty of others were there, but it was entirely possible to ignore them and a bit of a shock to get back to the world of people and stolen towels.

Dog-sitting for a friend. The experience was good for the dog (I think) AND me.

I sent flowers to a co-worker who was having a hard week and never told him who sent them. Mystery flowers!!

Overnight shipped an item to a customer free of charge because it was for a birthday gift and I didn't want the birthday person to be disappointed.

(The customer could have ordered sooner, and told me as soon as he placed the order that it was a birthday gift (instead of waiting two days) and saved himself the aggro and me the aggro PLUS the shipping charges, but that's not the point. The point is that the recipient will presumably have a happier birthday and I didn't take it out of the customer's hide.)

The annual Festival of the Arts is taking place at the Botanical Gardens across the street from my house so:
I sat on the surface of the sun while 4 little girls sold lemonade and cookies to passers-by. The people who stopped were all wonderful, generous and lavished compliments on the kids. The kids made out like bandits and then spent the rest of the day in the pool becoming human prunes.

I visited a friend last weekend and she really needed a haircut, but since she's barely working and has 2 kids and doesn't really have any extra $$, I took her to the salon and paid for her to get her haircut and bought her some new product.

Thumbs up

Y'all make my "Held the door for an old man being taken to the ER in a wheelchair" seem piss poor by comparison!
I'm proud to be associated with so many good people...

Is the meaning of the title "kindest" or "most enjoyable"? You Brits and your parallel definitions...

For the latter, I'd definitely choose driving to Jalama Beach with Rob & watching the sunset... for the former... can't think of anything It's all been about people doing nice things for me! I'd better do something quick...
