A little double-meme action for you today. Above you see a little shout-out to my LJ peeps, and below is the New Years meme that everyone's all jazzed about.....

1. What did you do in 2005 that you'd never done before?

Won a trip to Los Angeles to see U2.

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

I think I did about 50 percent. I am excercising more, though only for the last couple of months. I managed to finish The Dark Tower before reading the new Harry Potter. I do not have braces or an insulin pump but I have appointments scheduled for both and I am armed with a Flex-Spending account to acquire them! And we're not ready to move and I haven't gotten anywhere near my posts goal....but by this time next year....

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

Nope. Too many geeky friends I guess.

4. Did anyone close to you die?

No. Thankfully.

5. What countries did you visit?

None. But we got to go to L.A. and there's a trip to France on the books for this coming September!

6. What would you like to have in 2006 that you lacked in 2005?

I'll settle for the braces and the insulin pump.

7. What date(s) from 2005 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

I'm not big on dates.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?

They know who they are.

You have not been abandoned! OK, so we're kinda far away, we're still with you in spirit. And I always read your blogs. So you should post more often. Love you and Raven and Lucifer and all the other kitties. Mom
