It's My Party and I'll Cry if I Want To

What makes you cry? (Okay...or even tear up) Here are some things that set me off. I'll start off with a no brainer:
1. Pulling nose hairs :)(not exactly something I do often though. ;)
2. Saying the pledge of allegiance
3. Listening to great opera
4. Watching anyone else cry lol
5. The death scenes in Harry Potter lol
6. When friends are hurting.
7. Some poetry
8. Cutting onions :P
9. Watching young people perform...I'm always amazed and touched.
10. Being smacked in the face...okay, that doesn't happen, but I wanted an even ten items. :P

1. I always always cry when I hear "Nesun Dorma" - also many others like "Bring Him Home" from Les Meserables, etc.
2. When I see someone else cry
3. When I have reached the end of my rope (frustration)
4. When I think of one of my children going through a particularly tough trial
5. When I'm feeling particularly sorry for myself (see #3)
6. HP#7
7. I was afraid I couldn't stop crying the first time I saw "A Mirror Has Two Faces"
8. Happy endings - especially Tom Hanks/ Meg Ryan movies
9. Lord of the Rings - Return of the Kings when they are going to battle and Aaragorn is giving them a "pep talk".
10. Seminary graduation, or any other graduation, wedding, etc.

1. Occasionally when I say goodbye to my kids and start the drive back to Vegas I'll tear up. It used to be every time, but I guess I've gotten used to it.

2. The song 16 maybe less by Calexico and Iron & Wine.

3. Watching Brokeback Mountain (yeah, I realize I'm leaving myself open for a "you know how I know you're gay?" joke, but it's the truth - I can't explain why. Other movies don't have that effect).
