My (first) Annual Top/Favorite/Least Favorite Things of 2008 List

I was driving home from Monterey today. It's a 3 and a half hour drive. Point being, it's a really long drive. So, I listened to a lot of radio today. And wouldn't you know, just about every radio station was having a top songs of 2008 countdown. Radio stations are SO clever. If your radio station is 92.5, then you have the top 92 songs. If you're station is 106.5, then you have the top 106 songs. Anyway, those countdowns inspired me to blog about my own favorites this year. Enjoy.
