Should I write a Top 10 list? Fine, and I’ll make it meta.


So, in case it’s not obvious, I have a difficult time disciplining myself to update my blog regularly.

I read the “Super Easy Ways to Make a Blog Post Happen Every Day” type articles, all suggesting different things that you can do in a pinch – Post a photo!  (done that)  Link to a video!  (done that)  Promote a friend!  (did that via posting the video)  Write a haiku!  (I do that without thinking, but you may still see such a post in the future because I might have a haiku problem)

I try them all at one point or another, because I’m open to new ideas and I’m somewhat industrious.  One I’ve been putting off though, is “Write a Top 10 List!”  because I can’t think one up.  But I should do it, because you LOVE top 10 lists.  I LOVE top 10 lists.  Everyone you know LOVES top 10 lists.  Or top ANYTHING lists.  If it’s numbered – shit, even if it’s just bullet-pointed and the key points are in bold – we will EAT THAT SHIT UP.

So I guess I owe it to you all then, huh?

In an effort to compensate for my lack of numbered things in the past, I’ll even give it to you tenfold.

Here’s a Top 10 List of Top 10 Lists I Found on the Internet:

10. Budapest Top 10
While this one’s a little bit niche, it sat well with me because A) I’ve been to Budapest, LOVED it, want to go back, and would recommend the city to all; and B) There’s 11 Budapest-themed Top 10 lists on this one page.  So consider this me giving it to you twentyfold.

9. The 10 Best Country Albums of 2013
I’m not much into country personally, but I never said these lists were all about me.

8. The Top 10 Foods Only America Could Have Invented
Because food, that’s why.

The writer of this list appears to have no respect whatsoever for any of the foods on this list (and really you can’t blame him/her all that much), and as a result the read is, be it intentional or not, entertaining for its melodrama.  A lot of the choices here are obvious though (except bacon-everything was mysteriously left off), so while I was on Endless Simmer’s website still, I found this next more educational one for my American (read: probably all of my) fans…

7. The Top 10 Foods Only Australia Could Have Invented
Now this one I found a little more educational.  Apparently written in response to the America post due to many complaints about how the author is clearly unamerican and how America’s not fat, it’s big-boned, la de dah.  But I definitely haven’t heard of (and might be willing to try) a number of these items.  Really I’m pretty sure the only thing I’m familiar with is Vegemite, and that’s only because we all know the Men at Work song.

6. AFI’s Top 10 Romantic Comedies
This being a comedian’s website, I should give a nod to something that brings in the lulz.  And seriously, I used to take the AFI countdowns in like they were religious doctrine.  I still would, if I had the focus to sit down in front of a TV ever.

5. Top 10 Sophisticated Insults
Because it’s even more self-satisfying when you’re the only one that gets it.

4. Top 10 Obscure Inventions that Killed Their Inventors
It’s like I always say, I don’t mind if good- or bad fortune happens to me, as long as it makes for an excellent story I can tell later.  I guess that doesn’t fully relate to these people because they were too dead to tell their story later.  But still, a story’s a story – respect to them for taking one for the team.  And, you know, for inventing things, making the world a better place, blah blah blah.

3. Top 10 “Doctor Who” Episodes
Because my boyfriend would kill me if I didn’t include this one.

2. 10 Ancient Legends About Dreams
So this isn’t a Top 10 list, rather a list of ten things.  But my list isn’t really a Top 10 list either, it’s just disguised as one to make you think I rank things, so ssshhh…plus, this one’s probably got some of the coolest information of all these lists.

1. The Top 10 Top 10 Lists of 2013
Because while I was searching about online for the best Top 10 lists, it appears the NY Times beat me to it.  So now you have it twenty-nine-fold…unless they direct you to another Top 10 Top 10 lists, which is suspense I’m comfortable keeping you in.


This took me way too freaking long to write.  Next time I’ll just stick with “Top 10 green-colored foods,” or something.  Enjoy the rabbit holes you’re all about to get lost in!  Sorry for ending so many sentences with prepositions!
