would you like to play a game?

There's a list frenzy going on over at Blogcritics. I've been sitting here trying to decide which of the ten thousand entertainment-related lists I've made in the past year alone to post over there. I'll get to that eventually.

Back in the early days of this blog, I used to have a little thing called the Lists of Five. I would pick a topic and people would send me lists in regards to the topic (this was in days before content management and comments). There were topics like Five Favorite Jelly Bean Flavors and Five People Whose Head You Would Like To See Impaled on the End of a Stick.

So I started thinking of new lists today in the shower. I tend to do most of my thinking in the shower, by the way. I have composed many an acceptance speech or angry tirade while standing under the water.

Anyhow. Seeing as that the pnuemonia has sort of knocked me for a loop - as far as mental capacity goes - and I have nothing better to do (I was supposed to take my son and two of his friends to some Tony Hawk extravaganza tonight, but enlisted the friends' uncle to take them instead), I'm just going to make a whole bunch of lists and invite you to join in. Kind of like hanging out with my while I'm sick and making me feel all better. So put your jammies on, grab a cup of coffee (or put a slinky nightie on and grab a glass of wine), and hang out with me.

The rule is this: there are no rules. Your list of five does not have to go with my topic. You can make up your own title, your own list, your own whatever. Or you can just stay on subject with what I write. I don't care. I'll be posting throughout the night, so lists don't have to stay in this comment section. I'll take the best of the lists and put them on a separate page at some point. No prizes awarded, no judging or anything, just a lot of fun, and a way for me to get my creativity going so I can make a post over at Blogcritics.

I'll start.
