    That’s a whole lot of linkage! It must have taken FOREVER.

    Seems like you had a pretty good year. Maybe one day you will share the story about meeting your Dad. That sounds like a life changing experience.

    There are now also lots of pictures of you in your underwear on the internet. I imagine that will generate more hits for your blog than if I was to do the same thing. Although, I did buy some new jeans yesterday that are pretty fetching.

    It has been fun following your exploits and getting to know you. I hope 2011 is even better than 2010 seems to have been.

    I am going to put together a 2010 retrospective for my blog as well, but I seriously doubt it will be as exuberant or detailed. After all, I have a big New Years Eve dinner to cook tomorrow.

    Thanks for sharing all of this. It’s been a fun year.

      It took a few hours. Flickr has a calendar that maps what month I uploaded things. I’m going to take better care of my Flickr account this year, so its less of a mess at the end.
      I bet a series of self portraits in your uncles jacket may generate some hits.
      It has been a nice year of budding internet friendship, with you, Frank
      Your end of the year posts came out fantastic and reeeeeally made me want a good steak

    Damn girl. This is one of the best restrospectives I have ever seen.
    What I like about your blog and your photography is, that you seem to love life so much. And you are never afraid to do unusual, weird stuff… Never change and grow up.
