OOOOooohhh. ARg. I've had a blog in my head that I just can't seem to get down on paper, er, monitor, er, whatever. It's a really good story too, but there's so many details that I'm having a hard time sorting them out. I'll get up for you eventually, I promise.

In the meantime, I stole a meme from Jen, who stole it from Keri. I hope I can do it. I appears to be one that may require some real thought... and I have a really hard time remember what I did yesterday.

1. What did you do in 2004 that you'd never done before?
Started Kickboxing and bought an artificial Christmas tree. Hmmm, not very much I guess.

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I never really make them because I try to improve myself whenever I think of it all year round. But I did actually make a list for 2005 and am not doing to well already. What's today... January 9th? My list is in trouble.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
Yes, my cousins had a baby boy, Jonah.

4. Did anyone close to you die?
Not anyone 'close' to me, but a couple people I knew passed on.

5. What countries did you visit?
At this time I would like to quote Jen - "Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha."

6. What would you like to have in 2005 that you lacked in 2004?
Ahhh, let's see... MONEY? Yeah, some of that would be nice.

7. What date from 2004 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
Man, I can not think of any thing. Where was I all last year?

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
I'd have to say keeping my colitis in remission

9. What was your biggest failure?
Not finishing (and in some cases, starting) any of the projects I intended to have done by now.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
Thank goodness, no illness. But I did end 2004 by getting my finger slammed in a door about 20 minutes to midnight. That's always fun.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
More glorious camera equipment!!
But my greatest deal of the year was an $80 artificial Christmas tree I got for $25! All a matter of being in the right place at the right time.

That new U2 song they play for the Tsunami victims

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
a) happier or sadder? a little bit of both.
b) thinner or fatter? let's just say, more toned
c) richer or poorer? I make more money now but things cost more too, so how does that work?

yoga and taking my dogs out

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?
drinking beer during the week (stupid calories) and worrying about things
