A 2010 recap (because everyone is doing it)

I should get one more post out before 2010 ends, so here's a quick "Best of 2010" list I've been thinking of for the past few days

Scott Pilgrim

TV Show:
Last season of Lost
And for "new this year" it has to be The Walking Dead

Action Comics starring Lex Luthor

I'm trying to remember if I read any books that came out this year. Let's say I did, but they all sucked, so I don't have to talk about them. Anyway, a book I did read, and loved, was The Anatomy Murders by Lisa Rosner. A nonfiction book about Burke and Hare; two guys in the 1800's who would kill strangers and sell their bodies to the local college for dissection. Really great dinner conversation stuff.

Celebrity I met:
Jim Steranko, hands down. I met him at two cons this year and he was the highlight of both. If you look up the word gentleman in the dictionary, there is a picture of Steranko (and his perfect hair).

Kraken rum. It came out in 2009, but I just started buying it this year. Dark and spicy, this rum adds a few bare knuckle punches to any drink you mix.

BPAL Limited Edition scent:
Well, might as well just admit it, I'm one of those fangirls who nerd out over perfume oil. Yes, I smell like a goth kid. Anyway, the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab scent that I geeked out over this year was Elephantine Colossus, a NYCC exclusive.

At first, I was going to be all New York Comic Con!!!! It was my first time going to NYCC and it was awesome, and fun, and I had a freaking blast.
Then, I remember I got engaged this year to the best guy a nerdy, chubby alcoholic like me could ever wish for. I can't even begin to explain the warmth, love, and happiness that man has brought into my life. The best moment of the year 2010 was when he asked me to be his wife....The second best though, was totally NYCC.


  1. what about when I came to Philly for new years last year?

  2. I consider that a 2009 moment...?
