In no particular order.
I never planned to write a Best-Of-The-Year thing because I thought nobody cared what I thought. I guess now that I am a (famous) author, and we are in the period of last-year- new-year-musing, folks do care what I think about certain things. At least some things, like those below about which they keep bugging me.
So, I thought about it…
1-MOVIE-- THE HELP is the best overall, Viola Davis was brilliant.
HORRIBLE BOSSES was the funniest.
CONVICTION, BRIDESMAIDS, THE FIGHTER, are all worth a mention. A great surprise was WELCOME TO THE RILEYS.
2-BOOK-- THE ART OF FIELDING by Chad Harbach.
My review on Goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/221610448
3- NEW TV SHOW--PRIME SUSPECT starring Maria Bello.
NBC is now officially the worst network for not renewing this show. What else do they have worth watching?
The social site where I least feel like I'm wasting time. http://www.goodreads.com/
5-BLOG--THE CREATIVE PENN
by Joanna Penn, award winning author and blogger, a must read for writers.
6-JOKE--Herman Cain running for president.
7-GOLF SCORE(MINE)--65, at a par 66 course.
8-POLITICIAN--BERNIE SANDERS, I-VT.
No nonsense, Bernie truly puts the people first over re-election, PACS, or party loyalty.
9-LIVE EVENT--USA WOMENS SOCCER TEAM vs SWEDEN.
The most electric live sporting event I have attended-ever.
10-FREE THING--NITRO PDF READER.
I used this to convert my manuscript into a print ready PDF file for submission to the publisher. I have ADOBE, but I use NITRO.
11-NEW RECIPE-- ZITI WITH ROASTED ZUCHINNI.
A recipe I got from BON APPETIT.
