Top 10 Good People of 2005

Just a quick post as I have to get up at 5AM and those who know me KNOW I am NOT a morning person. I'm sure sleep will not be restful tonight, although I'm not the slightest bit worried about it all. Head on, like I do everything else. This whole thing will be a non-event. No sweat.

Anyway, just to leave you with a quick thought, GuyK over at Charming Just Charming has an interesting idea. It is NOT a Meme, but I'm doing it and thought maybe y'all should consider it.

The Top 10 people of 2005.

It sure is easy to dwell on the suckiest in suckville, isn't it? But who in this past year, has done something that you think just made your day or made your life just a wee bit easier? It can be someone that you met in the grocery store that did something for you unsolicited. It can be someone saying something kind when you were feeling like crap.

Review your year. Who was it. If you blog, think about blogging it.

I will... after I'm no longer in a drug induced stupor. I've already got 4. Its not going to be hard to hit 10. And I'll give you a clue as to who the first one is on my list right now... and he didn't even directly effect me. Go HERE to read about Otis. I don't care that it was his job... it was a nice thing he did.

What a great anodyne to the assignment Alexandra ("All Things Beautiful") handed me to name the 10 worst Americans of the last ~230 years...

This is one I need to think on a bit. 10 is a kinda high number of good folks for a curmudgeon to choose. I may have to include you.

(Oh! Has it come to that!?!?)

Hah - You won't be able to sleep because you know you have to get up early.... *grin*

Top 10... I must ponder this one!

Good luck, Bou. You're charm and good looks will "wow" the docs.

And here I am at my best time of day and you are in my thoughts. I know you'll be awake in a couple of hours, grumpy, but awake. I'll be thinking of you, dear lady. I'll keep the lamp burning for you.

Ten?!?!?! These are ten good people that influenced/helped me this year. Well hell. I don't know if I can think of two.

Well, I don't have a blog (keep forgetting to pick one up when I'm out), but if I did, I would put Bou on it. Her work with Katrina's Kids would be one important reason, but she is just an amazing person all around.

I can't get the trackback to work so *ping* thanks for the excellent idea....

It was a nice thing he did, Bou. Thanks for noticing.

And for everything else.
