Best of 2007

In our attempt to mimic the ideas of others (see Amy's list over at Arrogant Self Reliance), and our need to be just like the very vapid VH-1, we present our very own Best of 2007 list. Why, because it's the end of the year and it seems the right to do. Not to mention we've had way too much nog.
