I've always loved lists.
Especially lists that involve the word "Top."
Being as inspired as I am by E, VH1, and other "Top 2007" lists, I've decided I need my own.
Welcome to the first annual A Skirt Around The Issues Top 5 Blog Posts of 2007.
#5: "And So The Skeptic Begins Her Work." Seriously, how could my first blog post EVER not make the Top 5 list?!
#4: "So Totally Real It's Unreal." Meeting up with my childhood best friend was such an awesome experience of 2007--maybe the most awesome. The blog post for this reunion doesn't do it justice, but it's the thought that counts.
#3: "Something Nice to Say. (And Some Silence.)" Of all my blog posts of 2007, this one is the most important one to me because it really helped me rethink my writing life and forced me to start writing seriously again--nonetheless in a new genre, creative nonfiction. Bonus: it mentions Paris and her release from jail--one of the every lists "Top" moments of 2007.
#2: "Sea Bands Suck. (aka I Broke Up with Taco Bell (aka When Things Went Terribly Wrong (aka Beware: This Post Contains Gross Accounts of Vomit.)" I'm a sucker for any story that involves vomit, but this one really takes the cake. Fact: I have not eaten Taco Bell or any other fast food since summer. Honestly, I stopped craving it when I stopped eating it.
Drum roll, please.
And #1...Did you guess it?
"In Adulthood You Don't Always Get What You Want, You Get What's Do-able."
All I can say about #1 is that I still think about and want those sunglasses every day.
Stay tuned for a post tomorrow regarding our fantastic meal tonight and my 2008 New Year's Resolutions.
