Stolen gracefully from mandroid

1. What did you do in 2004 that you’d never done before?

Hell, a lot of things. I played games that didn’t exist, I started biking home from work (4 miles every other day), I started working out, I actually adopted and stuck with an excersize/weight lifting routine, I actually lifted weights, I wrote a Fucking Novel

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

I made two resolutions. It took me almost eight months to start one, and the other hasn’t even been touched. I will probably make the one I didn’t get to this year again next year.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

Yeah, enough that I started to actually feel jealous

4. Did anyone close to you die?

Not really. No.

5. What countries did you visit?

uh, I can’t even make a joke about visiting the countryside.

6. What would you like to have in 2005 that you lacked in 2004?

an increasing bank account, financial security, maybe a bit more emotional solidarity

7. What date from 2004 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

fuck, I dunno.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?

for better or worse, I wrote a fucking novel.

9. What was your biggest failure?

I’m kind of tanking this meme…

11. What was the best thing you bought? (where the hell is 10?)

bought? uh, maybe one of my presents for heather?

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?

I’ve been flattered again and again by my co-workkkers – more so than any year to date.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?

If I told you, I might get in trouble.

14. Where did most of your money go?

To shit I bought years ago. Okay, that’s not true – half of my money goes to my mortgage, then a quarter of it goes to my car.

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

Probably a lot of stuff, but most of it was probably really a let-down.

16. What song will always remind you of 2004?


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

am I? am I what? What the fuck is the question?

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

I wish I had done a bit more of my excersize routine. I wish I had spent more time with old friends and new.

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

argue with my wife.

20. How will you be spending Christmas?

I’ll be spending it with my parents in Virgina. It’s a 20 hour drive with dogs in the car, but we’re spending a week and my favorite uncle will be there (who I rarely ever see).

22. Did you fall in love in 2004?

every day again to the woman I married.

23. How many one-night stands?

none, I go to bed wtih the same woman every night.

24. What was your favorite TV program?

I’d say 24, but I kind of think LOST took the prime slot. Though Long Way Round was fantasitcally compelling and interesting (but much too short… come on, seven episodes?).

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

hmm, no, I think everyone still has their place, though I was hoping I wouldn’t hate people that I hated this time last year.

26. What was the best book you read?

I actually read this year, that was a big one for me. I read the first two Drizzt Trilogies and loved them all.

27. What was your greatest musical discovery?

Uh… like I’m supposed to remember? The 24 soundtrack came out. thats a good thing. I think maybe MusicMatch store may be my best discovery. It’s like ITunes, but not communist.

28. What did you want and get?

ReplayTV and Netflix

29. What did you want and not get?

a 48 inch widescreen tv for the above purchases, and a 6MP SLR digital camera

30. What was your favorite film of this year?

I got Netflix this year so there’s really no narrowing it down to anything. I saw a lot of crap, both good and bad.

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

I think I ate dinner with my parents and argued over whether they were actually giving me money or not. I think there may have been some zugzug, too.

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

34. What kept you sane?

video games, friends, alcohol and any combination of the three.

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

they’re fairly all two dimensional, so unless you want to know who I’m looking at when I’m beating the bishop, I think I’ll ignore this one.

36. What political issue stirred you the most?

the election, I particiapted, but all for not.

37. Who did you miss?

surprisingly enough, my brother and his wife. Also, old friends lost beyond burned bridges.

38. Who was the best new person you met?

just see who I stole this thing from.

I also still consider blu3warri0r a new friend and I need to hang out with him a lot more – he doesn’t seem to want to rent the house next to me though. :p

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2004.

Eating a pound of cake before going to work out is a bad thing (thanks for demonstrating this zero_interrupt)

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

I don’t pay attention to the lyrics, thats like work and stuff.

“a 48 inch widescreen tv for the above purchases, and a 6MP SLR digital camera”

Champagne tastes much? I SOOOOOO want a digital camera. I don’t even have a dinky Wal-Mart one. I would probably commit a night full of deviant acts to procure a 6 MP SLR.

“when I’m beating the bishop”

Augh!!!! Speaking of deviant acts–augh!!! ***get out of head, mind pictures–out, damn you, out!***
