My Top 10 Top 10 Lists

Happy 10-10-10!!!  In honor of today, I have composed TEN top ten lists to celebrate this once in a lifetime occasion.  Naturally, I am doing this off the top of my head and make no promises that everything is ranked the exact same way it would be if I had established an actual criteria.  There were definitely a lot of close runner ups, as must be the case in all top ten lists, and I feel bad some could not make the cut.  HOWEVER, it's still a lot of fun and I by no means think my opinion is worth a dime.  I'd love to hear your thoughts on my lists.  So, without further ado....

  1. Hilarious! Why, you ask? For one, your top 10 fav snack foods are the EXACT same ones I'd pick. Ranked a bit different of course but they'd all be in there. Secondly, your shows growing up, well, I still watch Saved by the bell, Full House, Family Matters, Friends, Boy Meets Word, Sabrina, and Step by Step on a daily basis. Thirdly (is that a word?) what do I fall asleep to every night? (and I have to have it on or else I can't sleep) - THE NANNY!

    Just thought I'd share. haha.

  2. If I remember correctly, you and I always had very similar food tastes it's why we get along so well! Sadly, two of my lists involve food, which reminds me the very reason I need to head to the gym as soon as I leave this comment. Oh well, at least I'm Italian. That's some justification, right?? The ranking was the hardest part - I can already see some things that should be higher and others lower, but whatever - people get the point. And as far as the Nanny goes, that is strictly Nick at Nite's fault for playing about 30 episodes a week. I don't even know if I like it - just that I always have it on. I swear, if Nick at Nite played a My Little Pony marathon, I'd probably leave that on too. Okay, maybe I draw the line there....

  3. I absolutely LOVE that you listed fried calamari as a "snack food" :) I miss eating out with you! ---Vita

  4. You're probably gonna think im a stalker for commenting on a blog you wrote over 2 years ago but in your top 10 favorite movies you had forrest gump in there twice haha


Feeling kind? Leave me some love.
