My Top Ten Lists

22 Jul

Make a list of the reasons why top ten lists are often so disappointing; if you’re feeling more positive today than I am, go for a top ten list of why top ten lists are awesome.

I’m going for the latter option today, and I’m doing it with pictures.  I appreciate that not everyone thinks like I do, so if you don’t get the joke, the explanation is at the bottom of the post.

Copenhagen opened the leaning towers of the Beautiful Sky Hotel

      I think you could edit your sentence a little to tell the real truth: Not good this hangover.

      Hope it was worth it 🙂

    Ok it’s official, I’m slooow.
    I “got it” at Pisa … and then I just went back and marveled at the buildings themselves… any clues where they all are (ok I *know* where Pisa is LOL) but the rest… more information would be brilliant as I’m really curious now.
    LOVE the “twist” btw… VERY well done!
