Things that are awesome
delirium happy
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!

The iPod, or portable MP3 player of your choice, because while MP3 is a lossy compression format, it beats the hell out of a backpack full of cassettes.

Whatever those bushes are called that are currently flowering (hi, my asthma thanks you!) that form tight, round clusters of white flowers, like snowballs. In fact, I think in some parts of the US they're just called something thumpingly obvious, like "snowball bush."

Lilacs, and the Pterry-fan custom of wearing them on the 25th.

The delightful weirdness of my niece and nephew; the latter, 16 months old, recently pointed at a Darth Vader action figure and announced, "Da-da!" Right, so you're the Princess, then? -- well, pretty much, yeah.

LOLcats in general, and icanhascheezburger.com in particular.
