My 5 Best Things in 2010

See if you can figure 'em out just from the pics and dates (answers supplied at the bottom otherwise):


Didn't guess from the pictures? Okay, here's the real dirt:

January - My first novel The Castle of Los Angeles was released. Pretty big deal for me, personally and professionally.

March - I make my first trip to Britain, and fall completely in love with Bath.

September - We adopt 17-year-old Mystery and we are now ruled by Princess Bossyboots (and very happily so).

October - My obsession with Janelle Monae is capped by seeing her in concert.

December - Tsui Hark makes the best movie of the year with Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame, and I couldn't be more thrilled.
