 Hey everyone,

I had a pretty fantastic New Year's eve, complete with good friends, good food, good booze and a game out Outburst from like, the late eighties. Those categories and the answers were hella old, (though one of the categories was forms of abstinence and one of the possible answers was homosexuality. I LOLed EXTRA HARD at that.)   but that probably only made it better because we mostly just sat around shouting out crazy, implausible answers and then yelling in delight when we actually got one right.  In any case, I'm gonna meme it up and take a look back at what made 2011 so....2011.


Did you enjoy this year?
I most certainly did! I met some pretty interesting folks and did some pretty interesting things.

What did you do in 2011 that you'd never done before?
Dressed up for a Renaissance Fair, Cosplayed Danerys Targaryen at DragonCon, Got shit waxed.

Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Not really, and no, probably not.

Did anyone close to you give birth?
Yes! a few friends of mine, and now I have pictures of little white babies all over my fridge.

My cousin Kimberly. That sucked hard.

What countries did you visit?
I actually just stayed in this one and wandered around the states this year.

What would you like to have in 2012 that you lacked in 2011?
One good, rewarding job with benefits and a chance for advancement, rather than two cool but fairly dead-end ones.

They're aren't any, really.

What was your biggest failure?
failing to get my ass in gear about my career.

My government, at all levels: municipal, provincial, and federal. My cat's.

Where did most of your money go?
Ugh. Public Transit fees. It went from being $58 dollars a month for a bus and train pass to $95, and all because my local government clearly mismanages funds like a motherfucker.

Dragon*Con, Heroes*Con, and the possibility of going to San Diego, but that's nothing new.

Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2011:

Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
This has got to be the good life.
