1000 Awesome Things

37_potatochip_largeOne of my most happy-making indulgences is the blog “1000 Awesome Things.”  It’s like a whole internet pan of the best chocolate chip cookies laced with uppers you’ve ever had.  Neil Pasricha’s countdown of awesome things is my go-to when I need a laugh, a pick-me-up, or a simple reminder that I’m not the only who thinks free refills are the lottery ticket of life.

If you’re new to his site, a good place to start is the Top 1000.  Some of my favorites below!  And like I always say, there isn’t a problem that can’t be solved with gasoline scratch-n-sniffs.
