Want some weekend distraction?

To celebrate our latest long weekend, a pair of my favourite websites:

* 1000 Tiny Things I Hate
I’ve written about this blog before, but it just keeps getting funnier and funnier! British comedian Jon Brown details all the many things that irritate him, like today’s post: #0156. HIGHLY SPECIFIC INTERNET POLLS, AND THEIR LARGELY UNSURPRISING RESULTS.
Very very amusing.

* 1000 Awesome Things
On the other end of the spectrum is this blog, one man’s attempt to be a little more positive in a largely unhappy world.

In his words: “Polar ice caps are melting, pirates are storming the seas, wars are heating up around the world, and the stock market is in a deep freeze. Dude, it’s getting pretty ugly out there…we started up 1000 Awesome Things a few months back as a tiny getaway from this every day. It’s just a brief escape from the downpour of bad news and sad news raining upon us…”

And it happens to be hilarious. Check it out for some quality weekend distraction.
