Your hit parade.

I have a favor to ask of regular readers, and anyone else who feels like participating. If you had to come up with the three best QC Reports, what would they be? I had to do this about a year ago, but a few more have accumulated since then.

I'm really not begging for compliments, I swear. In fact, this is all making me rather nervous. Just asking for your input means I am going to do something which will end up in the "Weird news of the week" page on Yahoo. Maybe something like "Woman impales herself on chopstick, now breathes through eye" or "Former child actress locks herself in car; after fire truck arrives, realizes she had keys in her hand all along".

Something like that.

Anyway, what say you?

Quinn, I love everything you've written, but if held at gunpoint and forced to pick my favorites of this last year, they would be: Pizza to Go, Miss American Pie, and my absolute favorite in the world (so far), A Good Belt.

So hard to choose. But from the last year, I'd vote for Deficit of Attention (for all the moms who can identify!); Long Weekend, parts 1 & 2; and Although Nothing Seems Right in Cars.

My all time favorite is Sock it to me. I also like She was just seventeen and Love Machine. The one where you try to give pizza to the homeless guy was rather funny too.

Well, I really ejoyed "operating system" otherwise known as "what time is it?"

The one where the building is open and you try to find someone to report it to.

And, if I must choose, "Fragile".

The one about all the animals that you have to feed was really funny. I also thought the one you wrote about your father was very touching.

Absolute favorite from last year? Love Machine. I laughed until I cried, then read it again and laughed just as hard.

Brilliant.

1. M is for the million things she gave me (my mother passed away a few weeks after my eighth birthday, so tributes to mothers are always poignant for me, and your words were especially sweet, Quinn).
2. Caged heat.
3. My blood runs cold, my memory has just been sold.

Quinn, I love everything you write.

"Stuck in the Middle with You" is definitely one of my all time favorites - but from this past year I hugely enjoyed the series about your photo session, especially "Shoot Me".

I am a regular reader and re-reader of your blog; you have such a gift. I could come up with a dozen favorites, but the three best are below:

Cursing the Darkness
Love Machine
Patrick Thomas Dwyer

I've read parts of all three of these over the phone to family and friends, and at the dinner table to my children. So, those are my votes.

And no, reading 'Cursing the Darkness' to my older children did not lessen the unearthly glow emanating from my house at any hour of the day or night . . . .
