Happy as a hill of beans

I'm writing an essay, and looked up synonyms for "jovial" in Word 2003. There are your standard fare, like cheerful, jolly, cheery, happy. And then there is "full of beans." Full of beans? I've never heard of such a phrase, and it sure seems like a strange one to show up in Word's thesaurus.
So yeah, that's all. It made me laugh.

  • Thinking again about "Happy as a hill of beans." "Hill of beans" has a different connotation than "full of beans." One usually says that something "doesn't amount to a hill of beans," meaning that it doesn't amount to much of anything. So to say your "Happy as a Hill of Beans" is to say you're not very happy, and I don't think that's true. I think you're just full of beans.

    Full of beans too.
