Top 10...9...8...7...6...5...4...3...2...1 Friends!

So tomorrow is New Year's Eve, and that means it's time for me to sit down and get my list together. I think I said in my earlier post that it's pretty easy to rate everyone, but I'm remembering now that this is not the case. What's tricky is, there are as many types of friendships as there are friends. Some are old friends, who I don't get to see or talk to as often as I used to. Some friendships are web-based; that is, we didn't meet on the web, but chat daily or nearly as often on AIM... or, at the least, we IM much more often than we see each other in person. And then there are the married couples. One couple I know (you know who you are!) actually compete over their rankings, and when one ranks higher than the other (get ready you two!) they laugh and point and say "HA!!!" in a very unsportsmanlike manner. What about the person who did one, reaaly reeeeealllyyy nice thing for me in a year's time? How does that effect their ranking? I want to recognise the gesture... but maybe a thank-you card is more in order. This year I feel pulled to put my work friends on the list, but it would be breaking my own "weekend friends" rule. Maybe I should do a seperate work list. THAT one would be easy...
Well anyway, my list is done for this year, printed up and ready to be read at midnight tomorrow at our friends' annual NYE fiesta. Pre-congratulations, friends!! And for those 11+es, there's always next year!

damn! too late to rack up any brownie points (and I was about to say so many nice things about you!)

"If I am on the list" said...

I am humbled and honored that you think so highly of me. Your friendship has been a true blessing.

"If I am NOT on the list" said...

what sort of egomaniac publishes a best friend list, rewarding blatant brown-nosers who believe it's an honor while humiliating humble but true friends.

ummm - since all other couples share a number on the list each year... are we the "unsportsman-like" behaved couple?

I thought we behaved very well this year .. don't you?
