  31. The U being undefeated in Football, it takes bragging rights away from those who are poor losers
  32. Wall-E
  33. The Lecture by Ed Catmull, head of Pixar at the U
  34. Obama winning the election
  35. Gas under $2.00 a gallon again
  36. Akasaka Sushi
  37. Dolcetti Gelatto
  38. Trying Culver's for the first time and having to admit that the midwest has way way better dairy products than the west can ever hope for....

The Worst Things

  1. The end of Capitalism as we know it
  2. Huntsman cutting funding on snowplowing and thus making driving in the snow a very hazardous occurance
  3. Increasing the cost of tuition
  4. The crazy cold hand rash development
  5. The continuing popularity of Reality TV
  6. Breaking Dawn...I couldn't finish it because it was so badly written.
  7. Twilight (the movie) 30 seconds of an intro for a Collective Soul song that does absolutely nothing for the movie, it just felt sloppily put together
  8. The Economy, this includes and does not limit to people applying for mortgages and getting them too easily, people withdrawing money from stocks and going back to the mattress mentality and the stimulus checks that only delay the inevitable.

Thats my list for the year, and as the worst is only 8 items comparable to 38 of the best, I feel I have done the year justice.
