This morning I found myself watching VH1’s best videos of 2009. I wasn’t really that interested, but there’s something about those countdown show were you just HAVE to know who wins, even if it is stupid Lady GaGa. Her video that they showed was more “troubling” than “good.” But I can’t claim a lot of shock there.
Anyway, with the year wrapping up it’s time to do my own little countdown of the best HTF posts of 2009. And like last year I’m asking for your help to do it (via an unashamed bribe). Please post a comment or send an e-mail with your top 3-10 HTF posts of 2009 – assuming you actually liked any of them. Everyone who does will be entered into a drawing for a sweet Amazon.com gift card redeemable for pretty much anything – I’ve learned this holiday season that you can literally buy ANYTHING on there. Last year the participation was great and my awesome sister-in-law won the drawing. The final date for entries will be Dec 27th.
I also wanted to sincerely thank the few of you who read the blog for sticking with me this year, especially those who linked to me, sent in questions, or posted comments. It’s been a pretty wild one and the posts have come out in spurts, and a few of them certainly made little to no sense. I even toyed with hanging up the blog thing for a time. But still, you’ve stuck with me – meaning you are both patient and easily-entertained! (these are qualities that are great at holiday parties as well)
I’ve always been super-lucky to have the best friends in the world (that includes my family). Some of you who’ve known me for a while know that to be true. Not sure how that’s happened, but it’s a huge deal to me. So I say gracias, sincerely.
Now, enough with sappiness! Send in those entries and win a prize. Then you can get back to the fun of the holidays – meaning we eat stuff we shouldn’t and get presents that we never would’ve purchased for ourselves (this could be good or bad).
