0 1000 Awesome Things

In my capacity as a professional blogger (is that even a real job title? well, it is now), I've visited hundreds, probably thousands, of blogs. Today I stumbled upon a delightfully humorous blog called 1000 Awesome Things. The site is simple, yet brilliant, as stated in the description for its sister publication, The Book of Awesome.

1000 Awesome Things was launched on June 20, 2008, by Neil Pasricha. Each day, Pasricha posts a new awesome thing as a reminder to appreciate the simple things in life. I spent a good part of the afternoon reading through the various entries and picked out some of my favorites...

• #996 Opening and sniffing a pack of tennis balls
• #933 The first scoop out of a jar of peanut butter
• #918 When you’re really tired and about to fall asleep and someone throws a blanket on you
• #905 Using all the different shampoos and soaps in someone else’s shower
• #822 When there’s still time left in the parking meter when you pull up
• #810 Returning to your warm and comfy bed after getting up to pee in the middle of the night
• #762 The moment at a restaurant after you see your food coming from the kitchen and before it lands on your table
• #720 The final seconds of untangling a really big knot
• #692 Eating the crusts of the sandwich first to save the middle part for last
• #656 When the plane suddenly speeds up on the runway
• #639 Carrying all the groceries in from the car in one big trip
• #612 Finally farting after the guests leave
• #547 Finding treasures in your Spring jacket pocket
• #513 Peeling that sticky glue off the back of your new credit card
• #508 Dropping your cell phone on the sidewalk and then realizing it’s totally fine
