I hope you're all having a fabulous weekend around the world and in the blogosphere. I'm getting over my sickness, but since I literally spent ALL DAY yesterday in bed, my body is slightly sore from lack of movement. Nothing that a hot bath won't cure. I'm decorating my Christmas Tree today! A mamoth 7"-something tree that is currently propped up in my living room. The cat is not pleased. Anyway, without further ado, here is the Best of 2009 Blog Challenge continutes:
December 4 Book. What book - fiction or non - touched you? Where were you when you read it? Have you bought and given away multiple copies?
Humm this is a tough one. I don't read as much as I would like, and I tend to re-read the same books over and over again. My top pick for 2009 is probably "I heart New York" by Lindsey Kelk. I travelled back home alone from Europe via Dublin this summer and had to spend a night in Dublin by myself. Browsing the bookstore in Dublin airport before my return flight, I happened across this book and bought it on a whim. Let me tell you, it made the 6.5 hour flight go by soooooo much faster!
Also a good read is Camilla Morton's "A Year in High Heels" because it is a type of life-survival-guide for a modern woman, detailing everything from How to care for your pearls to how to flip a pancake.
December 5 Night out. Did you have a night out with friends or a loved one that rocked your world? Who was there? What was the highlight of the night?
I would have to say my best friends birthday in early September. She and her fiance always have a joint party, which this year entailed going to a local club with a big group of our mutual friends. It was a good night, filled with fun, dancing, drinks and friends. The highlight of the night? Humm, I would have to say when at one point my bestest, her fiance, a few guy friends and I broke off from the group and wandered down to the other dance floor and ended up dancing on a platform.
December 6 Workshop or conference. Was there a conference or workshop you attended that was especially beneficial? Where was it? What did you learn?
I've never actually attended a workshop or conference, so I'm going to change this one slightly and make it a class instead. I would have to say my "Fantasy in the Modern World" class would be the highlight. My Proff was an AMAZING lecturer who I simply loved listening to. He had a gift for teaching and it was obvious how much he loved his job. He would tell the best stories and always find new and interesting ways to explain the topics. Thanks again Mr. H!
