40 Questions About 2006

Yet another end-of-the-year-meme. I like these, though, because they help you get a perspective on the year past.

1. What did you do in 2006 that you'd never done before?

Became an aunt. Attended the funeral of a friend.

2. Did you keep your New Years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

I didn't have any; I never do - so question not relevant.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

My brother's girlfriend gave birth to my first niece, Sweetpea, on May 2.

4. Did anyone close to you die?

I really hate that I have an answer for this one. Yes, my sister's boyfriend of ten years, my friend, and my "brother-in-law" in all the ways that counted, Guitar Rockstar. He was killed in a car accident on October 12.

5. What countries did you visit?

None.

6. What would you like to have in 2007 that you lacked in 2006?

An iPod, just because.

7. What date from 2006 will remain etched upon your memory?

May 2 and October 12.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?

Designing an official state agency's logo/emblem. Sticking to my guns and having dignity when losing out on a job for petty reasons beyond my control.

9. What was your biggest failure?

I didn't have any.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?

Just the usual leg pains and sinus infections.

11. What was the best thing you bought?

My Tibetan singing bowl, my wrap, and my mala beads.

12. Whose behaviour merited celebration?

My sister; for being the strongest person I have ever known. I am so proud of her.

13. Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed?

My Dad; alcohol has finally ruined him. He is no longer the man any of us once knew.

14. Where did most of your money go?

Bills and books, like usual.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?

The birth of my niece.

16. What song/album will always remind you of 2006?

Guitar Rockstar's song, played at his funeral, and that's on his MySpace; Keep Me Close by Absent Element/ Chris Daughtry (I know it didn't come out in 2006). I still can't listen to it, and it will forever remind me of him and of us losing him.

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

a. Happier or sadder? I don't know.
b. Thinner or fatter? I've gained a little.
c. Richer or poorer? Pretty much the same.

18. What do you wish you’d done more of?

Gone out more with Tweeze and Guitar Rockstar when they'd asked us to.

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

Being depressed.

20. How will you be spending your spend Christmas?

With The Worm's family, and then mine on Christmas night.

21. Who did you spend the most time on the phone with?

I hate the phone, but probably T.S.

22. Did you fall in love in 2006?

I'm already in love.

23. How many one night stands in this last year?

None.

24. What was your favourite TV programme?

Paula Deen's cooking show and MXC.

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

I have more hate for a particular person because I know more now than I did before. She will remain nameless because she doesn't deserve mention; I'm hoping ignoring her existence will make her dark, evil self cease to exist.

26. What was the best book(s) you read?

Lamb, by Christopher Moore
Madeline's Ghost, by Robert Girardi

27. What was your greatest musical discovery?

The Brazilian Girls.

28. What did you want and get?

A beautiful, healthy niece.

29. What did you want and not get?

An iPod.

30. What were your favourite films of this year?

I'm always behind on watching movies, so forgive me that these all came out before 2006 (they were "new to me"):

The Notebook
Underworld: Evolution

31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?

I was 29, but I don't remember what I did. It was a pretty somber occasion this year, with what all happened in October.

32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?

Finally getting the raise I deserve at work.

33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2006?

Same as always - comfortable and forgettable.

34. What kept you sane?

Sweetpea.

35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?

As always, Angelina Jolie.

36. What political issue stirred you the most?

Gay marriage.

37. Who did you miss?

T.S., and then Guitar Rockstar.

38. Who was the best new person you met?

Rose - though actually we "met" long ago, but this year it was an official, meeting-in-the-flesh.

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2006.

Cherish your loved ones every day.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year?

Catch me as I fall
Say you're here and it's all over now
Speaking to the atmosphere
No one's here and I fall into myself
This truth drives me
Into madness
I know I can stop the pain
If I will it all away
- Whisper, Evanescence
