1,000 Awesome Things

I'm sure I keep you all busy enough with my scintillating daily posts:) But I did want to mention a blog that I recently discovered through The Happiness Project: 1,000 Awesome Things.

As it says on his blog, creator "Neil Pasricha never imagined that writing about the smell of gasoline, thinking it’s Thursday when it’s really Friday, or wearing underwear just out of the dryer would amount to anything. A self-described 'average guy' with a typical 9-to-5 job in the suburbs, Neil started his blog 1000 Awesome Things, as a small reminder — in a world of rising sea levels, global conflict, and a troubled economy — of the free, easy little joys that make life sweet. He certainly didn’t anticipate that his site would gain a readership of millions of people, win two Webby Awards ('the Internet’s highest honor' according to The New York Times), be named one of PC Magazine’s Top 100 Sites, or become a place where people from around the world would come to celebrate the simple pleasures of daily life."

I may be the last person to discover this joyful blog, but just in case I'm not I did want to pass this along. And I've been so inspired that I'm going to list some things that I think are awesome here for the next few days.
