Over the two plus years I’ve had this little blog, I’ve started several projects that I haven’t exactly followed through with, despite the best of intentions. But one project I have not abandoned is this one, my weekly roundup of fun internet finds. In celebration of the fact that this is my one hundredth (!!) time writing a “Things That Are Awesome” post, I thought it would be fun to feature some of my all-time favorite items from the previous 99 posts. So herein I present, Things That Are Awesome: The Greatest Hits.

From Volume 18 – This Hunger Games Spoof Trailer kills me. The reaction when Prim is reaped = priceless.
From Volume 21 – Another SNL skit I’m
mildly majorly obsessed with, Bein’ Quirky with Zooey Deschanel. Kristen Wiig’s Bjork will never, ever get old. Never ever. (“I made a sweater for an octopus. Plus I left one extra hole for its dreams and ideas.”)
