Top 5 (Anti) Social Articles in 2009

Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top (by jack o'diamonds)

I decided to take a rare peek at Google Analytics and find out what my top 5 articles were of 2009 by pageviews.

The results didn’t surprise me and are a glimpse into what people are interested in right now and does make me question my focus here a little.

Picture Perfect

Components Of A Perfect Day (by Merry~Blues)

Over a month ago Adrenalynn tagged me in the Picture Perfect Meme, in which you had to ask your child to draw a picture of you and then post it on your site.

Holiday Inn, 1967, #4,000 (by Roadsidepictures)

My favorite version of A Christmas Carol is the 1970 musical called Scrooge, which stars Albert Finney. I don’t know if it’s the BEST version but it’s my favorite.

There are two reasons for this, which are highlighted in the videos below. 1. When Scrooge witnesses his death with the ghost of the future, the townspeople dance on his coffin and sing a song called “Thank You Very Much”. It’s mean and funny all at the same time. 2.
