Top 10

my co-workers and i are in a fierce top 10 list marathon.

see it all started with "my top 10 favorite actors."
This was David's idea and we were all intrigued.
We've gone from top 10 favorite songs to favorite directors to top 10 actresses who (we think) will win an Oscar....and on and on and on.

Right now it's music videos.
Here was my (very edited) list:
