things that are made of win

The following things are made of win (and puppies and rainbows and warm gooey chocolate chip cookies which I can't eat at the moment because I, in a moment of befuddlement, gave up chocolate for Lent):

1] My eee PC. Yes, there are currently better models of this pc out there (there's a lot to be said for not buying the first model to come out), but mine is small, and cute, and oh yes, it's PINK! This puppy has come in oh-so-handy for writing on the go and I recommend it to anyone who wants a light cheap laptop or enjoys pretty pink electronics.

2] This video. I cannot tell you how many times I've watched this. It is essential viewing if you're breathing. I laughed, I cried, I wanted to go out and buy a Roomba and adopt a litter of kittens.

3] Guilty pleasure songs. Everybody has a few and I think people should dance about to them in their pjs with pride (in the privacy of their own homes of course). It's entirely likely I'll randomly mention a few of my own guilty pleasure songs in future blog posts so I'm hoping this "made of win" post will give said future mentions an edgy coolness :)

4] Feel good songs. These are sort of like guilty pleasure songs except you're not embarrassed to tell the world about them. My current happy song is You and I by Ingrid Michaelson. I'm starting to think it's impossible for this song to NOT put me in a good mood.

5] English word definitions quiz site with a twist. For every word you define correctly, they donate 10 grains of rice through the UN World Food Program to help end hunger. Literary nerdiness + charity = big win.

6] Cadbury Mini Eggs. These little delights are absolutely what I'll be eating like they're going out of style as soon as this whole Lent debacle is over with. Cadbury = pure yum.

7] Mike's cover song blog. Whether you're a fan of cover songs or not, you gotta respect the topical categorization and witty post titles. Cover songs are pretty fun on their own, but they're more fun when Mike has done all the work of finding them for you :)
