2010 in review

I’m incredibly flattered that two posts about my own designs made it into the top five, and I love that the gorgeous Ms Lawson made it into another two (the McKeith/Lawson debate still seems to be raging). On top of that, my beloved Eddie Izzard rounded out the top spots – yay!

Is it a bit Scrooge-y that one of the top searches leading to my blog was “Bah Humbug”?

Thank you to everyone who visits this blog and especially to those lovely people who lave comments – I always like to hear from folks.

I wish you all a year as awesome as a billion hotdogs!
