Recently I saw as @Sharrie
made a list of her personal favorite reviews. It was such a neat list to read and also exposed me to more of her reviews. So I figured... why not do the same? As I went through my own history, one thing stuck out: I have too many reviews. As I write this list I have 246 reviews posted here on Lunch.com
. So while I can't just pick ten reviews, I figured I could at least pick 10%. And while it isn't exactly 10%... I cheated and rounded up to 250 since I'm close to that mark. This allowed me to pick twenty-five favorites... and believe me picking those twenty five favorites wasn't easy.
On the other hand, I have thought long and hard about making a list to honor the reviews I enjoy by other lunchers similar to the way @Count_Orlok_22
did, but I'm going to have to wait on that one because choosing just twenty five of my own was hard... how am I supposed to choose from the rest of the whole community?
Anyway, this list also gives me a chance to provide commentary that I kept out of reviews and that I didn't want to post in the comments section of said reviews. If you follow me, you're pretty much in the loop on a lot of this stuff (I've received many nice comments from you all).
Lastly, I thought long and hard about whether or not I wanted to actually put this up because I didn't exactly want to seem like this sort of arrogant and egotistical asshole. In the end I decided to hell with it. If people think I am, I suppose that's their choice. Actually I thought this would be a nice way to give people a better understanding of who I am, and to some degree why I chose to write some of the reviews I've written. In short, it's a way of putting myself out there so that those who would like to get to know me more... get that chance to do so in a way that isn't quite so typical. As Sharrie did before me, it wouldn't hurt to do your own. Let people get inside your head.
Now here's your chance to get a little further inside mine.
