In lieu of a top ten list, let us merely take a moment of silence to reflect on the year that was 2010.
(That's a fancy way of saying I have nothing interesting enough to list.)
Happy 2011 to all!

We are excited to let you know that your 2010 NaNoWriMo novel may be receiving a cover designed by an amazing designer. Our design dream team has agreed to try to bash out 30 NaNoWriMo book covers in November as part of our "30 Covers, 30 Days" project, which you can read about in the official forum: http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/node/3699349. We’ve listed the designers participating here: http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/node/3700248
We loved your title and synopsis. If you give us the okay, we'll send them to the designer team, and the designers may use them to create a cover design for your novel-in-progress (we say “may” because we’re sending the designers a few options to choose from). Plots will be sent throughout the month, so be sure to stay on pace with your word count!
- On Jeeves' seeming ability to appear as if from thin air (apparate): "I've got a cousin who's what they call a Theosophist, and he says he's often nearly worked the thing himself, but couldn't quite bring it off, probably owing to having fed in his boyhood on the flesh of animals killed in anger and pie." (Those last five words got me.)
- On a trip away from Manhattan: "The days down on Long island have forty-eight hours in them; you can't get to sleep at night because of the bellowing of the crickets."
I woke last night to the sound of thunder
How far off, I sat and wondered
Started humming a song from 1962
Ain't it funny how the night moves
When you just don't have as much to lose
Strange how the night moves
...When autumn's closing in
Tired of lying in the sunshine, staying home to watch the rain.
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
