Awesome: A List

Sometimes when I'm not bursting with inspiration, I ask my friend Mary what I should write about.  Her most recent suggestion: awesome things that are awesome.  Sounds good to me!  So here we go, a list of awesome things.  These are in no particular order.  It is also not an exhaustive list. 

Glittens.  Gloves that are mittens.  The weather is getting colder and I'm getting ready to dig through my storage unit to find these.  They keep all parts of my hand warm and usable.  Awesome.

TV on DVD.  I have a few TV shows on DVD in the storage unit too, so while I'm getting out my winter gear, I think I'll grab Sports Night.  I love watching TV on DVD.  No commercials.  Episode after episode.  There are often special features like Bloopers and Commentaries.  And even though the novelty of it is gone because every show is now released on DVD- and quickly, it is super duper awesome. 

New York City. I love New York City.  We all know why- because it's awesome. 

The Kennedy Center presents The 13th Annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor to Tina Fey.  How awesome is that?  Even more exciting?  I'm freaking going.  So so awesome.

Scotch. Scotchy scotch scotch.  Scotch in my belly. 

Hulu.  Almost anything is available on Hulu now.  You can auto-play next and it simulates that whole play all feature on DVDs.  It's great for catching up on shows you weren't sure about (like Detroit 1-8-7), watching shows on channels you don't get (like Melissa & Joey), or shows that were canceled three years ago only six episodes in (like The Return of Jezebel James).  Yes.  It's awesome.

Netflix Watch Instantly.  Netflix itself it awesome, but then they added this watch instantly feature, and it keeps getting better.  Sometimes I want to watch something RIGHT NOW.  And now I can.  Awesome.

Popcorn for dinner.  Popcorn is pretty good, but when you have it for dinner, it's awesome.  Especially when you leave room for dessert too.

Drunkfest. This will get it's own post soon enough.  Possibly two or three.  It's the greatest holiday in the entire world.  It happens to coincide with Thanksgiving, but really, Thanksgiving is the poor mans Drunkfest.  Drunkfest isn't just awesome.  It's the most awesome awesome thing there is.
