Fun New Year Thingie

Found this on both Jodi and Tracey's blog. Thought I'd try it out.

1. What did you do in 2007 that you’d never done before? Quit my job with nothing to fall back on, moved without any guarantees of anything. I'm sure there's some more little things, but that's the big ones.

2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?I don't make 'em. I can never keep 'em.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?Yep, J had baby M. Beautiful, gorgeous, fat baby M with the astonishingly beautiful blue eyes.

4. Did anyone close to you die?Yes, my great aunt. Light of my life took it hard.

5. What countries did you visit?Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, Morocco, Japan, France, the UK and Canada. I had a busy year. Of course, all that was in a 2 day period and it happened in Epcot, but dammit, it should count!!!!!!

6. What would you like to have in 2008 that you lacked in 2007? Money, money, money. Did I mention money?

7. What dates from 2007 will remain etched upon your memory, and why? July 21st (last day at secure job), August 4th (day we moved to temporary home), October 6th (day we moved into our permanent home), October 8th (day I started my new secure job).

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?- Surviving the year. Period.

9. What was your biggest failure? Not saving enough money.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury? Yep, cut my foot (bad enough to leave a large scar on the bottom) on a barnacle 2 weeks before our Disney trip.

11. What was the best thing you bought? The hamster.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration? Light of my life's, hands down. She held up so well with the move. I am sooooooooooo proud of her. We left the only home she's ever known and she did it with grace and good will.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed? Hmmm......nobody personally.

14. Where did most of your money go? It went towards that little thing called Every Day Life.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about? My Disney trip. Can't wait to go back in 2009.

16. What song will always remind you of 2007? To play off Jodi's answer, not because I like it, but that Fergie song....Big Girls Don't Cry. To me, that was OVERPLAYED.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:

a) happier or sadder? happier.
b) thinner or fatter? Same.
c) richer or poorer? poorer

18. What do you wish you’d done more of? Spent more time with light of my life. That's slowly changing though.

19. What do you wish you’d done less of? Work!

20. How did you spend Christmas? With family and friends. It was a very low-key, laid-back holiday season. Just how I like it.

21. Did you fall in love in 2007? Nope. Who has time for that?

22. What was your favorite TV program? Heroes, Survivor, Amazing Race, How I Met Your Mother

23. Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year? Nope.

24. What was the best book you read? Ahhhhhhh, so many. I read Disney War (about Michael Eisner's reign), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and the first two prequels to Peter Pan (Peter and the Star Catchers and Peter and the Shadow Thieves) written by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. I read a ton more, but these stand out. Also, Devil in the White City.

25. What was your greatest musical discovery? tons of stuff on Perez Hilton's website. He finds the coolest music. My fav by far that I found on the radio was Sean Kingston.

26. What did you want and get? a tripod for my camera

27. What did you want and not get? a new camera

28. What was your favorite film of this year? Pan's Labyrinth and Sweeney Todd

29. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you? I had a wonderful party with great Mexican food and margaritas. It was my 30th. Lots of friends attended and it was a blast.

30. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying? Moving sooner.

31. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2007? Casual, as usual.

32. What kept you sane? Light of my life. She occasionally added to the insanity, but for the most part kept me grounded.

33. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most? Milo Ventiglimia.

34. What political issue stirred you the most? None. I avoid politics like the plague.

35. Who did you miss? R & family, K, V & C from the place I just moved from.

36. Who was the best new person you met? B & L and their offspring. They're incredible.

37. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2007. It's OK to take risks. Sometimes they pay off.

38. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year. I can't think of any.

2 really cool people who give a rat's patootie:

Mama Dawg

I know, right? I'm listening to her c.d. right now at work but I skip over that song.
