Things that are awesome

So I've had an idea. LiveJournal tends to be filled with a whole lot of negativity a lot of the time. So I want to try to do something more positive. Your mission should you choose to accept it, is to list 5 things which are awesome, together with a brief explanation of why you think they are awesome. Anything goes; you can choose people or places or animals or concepts or TV shows or anything you want. The only criteria is that they all have to be awesome.

Here, I'll start with 5 completely random awesome things:

1. Hobnobs. I love hobnobs. For those not in the know, they are yummy yummy oaty biscuits with one side covered in chocolate. They are extremely delicious and extremely addictive.

2. Thingvellir. One of the more memorable places I've visited in my life. On the one hand, it was the seat of the Althing, one of the world's oldest parliaments. On the other, it also happens to sit right on the boundary between the Eurasian and Norht American tectonic plates, giving you a great view of geology in action.

3. Okapis. Little miniature giraffes wearing stripy stockings? What's not to love?

4. Lasers. Lasers are neat. The thing I mostly love as lasers is that they were originally devised from pure science, without any particular application in mind. Now they're used for everything from hair removal to compact discs to little pointers used to torment cats.

5. Giving people birthday presents they aren't expecting. I did this earlier today to kamara and it made her spaz, which was fun.

Your turn now. 5 awesome things. Go go go!

Random five Awesome things:

1. Free comics, being given away - It was free comic book day today, Mainstream USAnian comic book publishers publish books especially for it. It's fun! One can get free comic books! And it's a good excuse to go to the comicbook shop and buy shiny comics one has been meaning to look at for a while. Or see comicbooks one had not been aware of before.

2. I was at a party this evening, and it was awesome. There were nice people! There was tasty food! There was a guy who brought four different bottles of whisky to taste and share! There was a guy who told me I was not uncool. It was good.

3. I am reading the Vorkosigan series by Lois McMaster Bujold and it is awesome. It's Science-Fiction and to me it is great space-opera and the protagonists are awesome, cool, slightly-to-highly insane-in-a-good-way people and - I am really enjoying reading it. abigailb is lending me the books, and as soon as I mentioned finishing the first one, she brought the next one along - which was awesome of her.

4. Have I Got news For You was on Friday on BBCone and it had Brian Blessed on it, and it was hugely fun. I laughed a lot, and there's a webisode here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Erh4HBVDxBs with some stuff that wasn't - and some stuff that was- on television.

5. The Muppet Beaker singing 'Feelings'. That's pretty awesome.
