Time for Awesome Things

Apparently I'm a little late to this, but I just found this blog, 1000 Awesome Things, which apparently is also a book which apparently everyone else knows about. (I say this because the site is nearing 10 million hits, won a Webby award, and have been covered by every major news outlet. But still, yes, new to me.)

When I logged on, the most recent post on the site made me say in my head "yes. yes, that really is awesome." Number 587 in the list of 1000 Awesome Things: Taking your ponytail out. Guys, unless you have long hair, you really don't know how freeing this can be. Ladies, you're with me, right?

The drawings above are by Monsieur Cabinet. I'm not sure if he was commissioned to make them or if he just felt moved to do so, but they illustrate what I assume are his favorite Awesome Things. Here are 3 of my faves.  (Especially the Q and the U luck.)

#602 Setting the new high score on a video game

#990 Picking up a Q and a U at the same time in Scrabble

#796 The sound of rain from inside a tent
