--I think everyone should do a Top 16 list for 2016, via spn_bunker
! Here's the original post
, and here's my top 16 today:
2) A great SPN watch party with fans last weekend, complete with food so good I was literally full for days.
3) I made a font of my own! And I think I'm pretty satisfied with it!
4) Hot guys exist.
5) The outlet of art of all kinds.
6) Orphan Black's newest season (the one that's out on DVD, anyway), and the glory that is every actor on that show--not just Tatiana Maslany's incredible performance, but Donnie! Art! Felix! VIC!!!
8) Parks and Rec.
9) The wonders of technology that make this post possible.
12) Feeling better in general, even if I have specific health worries right now.
13) Astonishingly, I too now seem to have an actual social life!
14) Ping Pong: The Animation
16) Captain America: Winter Soldier
... Which reminds me--I suppose it's time to tell the story behind the Top 5 post every Monday at spn_bunker
When I was in college, I was fortunate to live in a dorm one year where we were all a bunch of freaks who got along great and were all good friends, forever hanging out in each other's rooms or in the hall, going places together, etc. You never had to walk into the cafeteria and eat alone, because there was ALWAYS a friend from the dorm there to eat with. I only had that (part of) one year, but it was fantastic while it lasted.
Anyway, one of these friends was fond of drawing pictures of a clown in place of various historical figures (he even put it on a cross--yes, we were all artists, and would do anything, no matter how outrageous). He would draw one every now and then to everyone's delight, make several photocopies, and hand them out to everyone. I drew comic strips about rock stars. We sometimes gambled (NOT REAL MONEY) on a ridiculously bad-graphics, boring-ass horseracing computer game. There was all kinds of weird stuff like that.
But something not so weird was the Top Ten. At random intervals, but usually at least every other day, people would whip out a piece of paper and begin detailing their top ten of the day, or of the moment, or related to some particular subject of interest; any kind of top ten on any subject. They got really into it, poring over it for a long time, sharing items on the list with one another as they went, perfecting it, and keeping their list when they were done, sometimes making a copy of it for someone else, sort of a way to commemorate that day of their lives. I thought it was beautiful.
So when I was trying to come up with a new event to fill in some of the gaps at the Bunker, I remembered this, remembered how at other times in my life people have said making a list of positive things going on in their lives really helped them feel better when things were bad, and the Top 5 was born (on Monday, the worst day of the week for many).
Please feel free to participate over on spn_bunker
any Monday, or for that matter, any time you need to make a list! You can just go to that week's Top 5 post to make your list. Don't hesitate to make more than one list, either (and don't limit yourself to only five items)! You can do subject-specific lists, a list every day of the week (or every other day, like my college friends); whatever you like. Maybe you could share it on your own lj, too, to let your friends know what's going on with you. I always enjoy reading people's lists, even if I don't end up making one myself that week, and I think other people enjoy reading them, too, so don't be shy! The Bunker don't bite. ;->
