This drawer in my kitchen always makes me 2% happier.

Turquoise Betty Crocker bowl from the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, Egg Pants from Plastica on 3rd. St. (thanks ai & ma!) or on several online places such as Design Glut or Supermarket, Muji thermos.


  1. how does one measure 2% of happiness?

  2. Estimating how 100% happiness (or 100% anything for that matter) is measured would, I feel like, be very presumptuous of me. But I can detail the rest.
    Makes you say "this is the best day of my life!" - 90%
    Makes you call someone up - 50%
    Makes you smile - 5%
    Makes your eyes feel like they're smiling - 2%
