An Ice Cave

So my lovely, slightly crazy neighbor decided to gather up all the snow around our apartments and use it to build an ice cave.
Inside the ice cave. It's tall enough for me to stand up straight inside (and I'm 6'3").

Partying inside the ice cave. We're planning to ring in the New Year with a toast inside the ice cave tonight.

One Last Boobie for 2010

Last Boobie of the year. It's been a good year for Boobies.

My Best Of 2010 List

As the year comes to an end, it's customary to list the best (and/or worst) of the year. For me, it's a very short list:
1: The San Francisco Giants WON THE WORLD SERIES!
Understand that I've been a Giants fan since I was a small child, and this had never happened before. I think I celebrated for at least two weeks, and I still get a slightly intoxicated smile every time I utter or hear the phrase "World Champion San Francisco Giants." I'll get to continue feeling that buzz until at least October, if not longer.

I fully realize that many more important things occurred this year, like health care, the repeal of DADT, the rescue of the Chilean miners, and others. But for the rest of my life 2010 will be remembered as the year the Giants won it all!
(I know I'm being rather shallow. Please feel free to leave your "best of 2010" in the comments.)
