After weeks and weeks of waiting, the Carnival has finally made its way here.Â I had about 28 entries to go through this week,Â which wasÂ less than I expected (fortunately for my eyes, and my fruit fly esque attention span).Â I wanted to stick with the top 10, but a ton of the ones that didn’t make the cut, were great entries that were either similar topics to other ones or just didn’t grab my attention as much as the top 10 did.Â So I’m going to stick with the whole 21 theme, and have the party today (top 10), and the hangover tomorrow (great entries that I can’t deny you, that just didn’t make the cut).
So lets get to it.
