as "awesome" is one of my favorite words (i probably use it too much, in fact), i was immediately intrigued. the things i glimpsed in my brief perusal made me want to buy the book right then, but, alas, i was not willing to shell out the 20 or so bucks it cost at urban outfitters. so, as soon as i got home, i put it in my library queue.
okay, fast forward a little bit. i got it from the library, read it in a couple days, and it was, in a word, awesome. it's everything that i am about: finding joy in the little things, focusing on the seemingly insignificant things that happen everyday and make you inexplicably happy. a sampling of the topics covered in the book:
- the other side of the pillow (the cool side)
- hearing someone's smile over the phone
- finding money you forgot you had in a long-unworn article of clothing
- inventing new words or phrases with your friends so they only make sense to you
- getting things in the mail with actual writing on them (go here to see what i've already said about this)
- car dancing
anyway, enough with the lists. i love this book. i want to purchase it for real and read the sequel, the book of even more awesome. i loved the 300 and some odd page reminder that, sometimes, the little things are what matter.
what makes your list of awesome?
