Goon Squad Sarah's Top 9 of 2009

Goon Squad Sarah 20092009 was a pretty fantastic year. Well, sort of. I'm still grumpy that my kids have three days off of school after the snowpocalypse this weekend. Three extra days. They actually don't go back to school until 2010 now. I know I should be happy that I get to spend extra time with my children, but they are currently making up some sort of birthday rap so it feels more like headache than quality time.

But I digress, you want to know what my favorite things were in 2009?

9. "Percussion Gun" by The White Rabbits

This was by far my favorite new song this year. I've been listening to it for months and I'm still not sick of it.

8. Stuck in the Middle With You

This is a video of Danielle from Knotty Yarn reading her post called "Stuck in the Middle With You" from the community keynote at BlogHer. I loved pretty much everything about the Community Keynote this year, but this reading made me HOWL.

7. Up


I wasn't in love with many movies in 2009, but this one touched a chord.

6. MamaPop Party at BlogHer (a.k.a. The Sparklecorn Extravaganza)

People, if you weren't there you missed the sparklecorn cake.


And these handsome devils.

But really and truly it was the best party I went to this year. I was proud to be part of the hosting team.

5. Top Chef Masters


Oh, hells yes. 

The food on this show was astounding.

Also, I think I have a huge crush on Hubert Keller.


4. On a Boat

I'm not even sure why I think this is so funny, but I do.

3. Woody Harrelson Mistaking a Photographer for a Zombie

Picture 3

This was my favorite news story of the entire year. Woody Harrelson assaulted a TMZ photographer in the airport because he mistook the photographer for a ZOMBIE. It happened in April and I still think it is funny.

2. MamaPop RoundTable

I hate to be a weirdo and vote for MamaPop on MamaPop again, but The Palinode does an amazing job putting these together. If you aren't watching them you are crazy.

1. The Mattin Roll


I wonder if I will ever tire of this picture.

Probably not.

2010 is going to be awesome! Or should I say teh awesome?

. . . . .
Goon Squad Sarah really needs to get a life.

What would have been a cool moment in 2009, is if all of you had to fight Woody Harrelson at the Mamapop party.


I have two awkward movie moments:

When I was in 2nd grade and my babysitter took my friend Claudia and me to see "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" because she thought it was a Disney flick. Fortunately the ticket seller realized what was going on and stopped us from entering the theatre.

When my mother suggested we rent "Boogie Nights" and said she thought it was a movie about the disco era. My husband, my mother and I watched it together. Yeah, not about disco. not even close.


seriously, not trying to be all ass-kissy....my Top of 2009 definitely includes MamaPop. You guys rock, day in and day out.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

Awwwwww. Thanks!

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

I think I could take him.

Suzy Q

The best thing about 2009 is that it's over.

Also, back off the Hubert. He and all of his delicious creations are mine.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

Do you want to fight me for Keller?

Suzy Q

Cage match or jello pit? Your choice.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

I'm down for either.

Well, I'd invite you down here to Miami, where it is currently a brisk 62 degrees, to Get It On, but, I just remembered. You're snowed in. Pity.


I LOVED Top Chef Masters but I think it kind of spoiled Top Chef for us. Because seeing how real professionals act made the regular contestants, less Kevin, Brian (almost), and Jen(mostly), seem even more amateurish and rude.
