Top 5 things I learned this year

Greek yogurt rules! That’s it. I didn’t learn much of anything this year except maybe that when you think things can’t get any worse, they can. However, that’s not so much a lesson as it is a fact that I don’t like to ponder with too much vim.

Franklin’s Autobiography – Benjamin Franklin
The Major plays of Anton Checkov
Lake Wobegon, Summer 1959- Garrison Keillor
The Return to Depression Economics – Paul Krugman
Mine Enemy Grows Older – Alexander King
War and Peace – Leo Tolstoy
The Flash of Lightening Behind the Mountain (New Poems) – Charles Bukowski

Music:

Sea Sew – Lisa Hannigan

I commend you on your choice of things we could have done without. It is past time the Orly and Birthers, the Teabaggers, and Beck bade farewell.

You know Adam Lambert is nothing new and hasn't shocked anybody. I've got news for him - Boy George already did his gig like 25 years ago so he really needs to get over himself and try something new. Please post some new shit when you get time.
