Part of me is tempted to avoid the list issue altogether. It's so cold and categorical, and on the second day of 2007, sharing "best of" lists feels like donning last decade's worn-out velvet hat. But I'm eternally jealous of all of those other official lists piling up, and I couldn't avoid making some of my own. And when you make lists, measurements, anything of that type, what can you do but share them?
