The 2003 Meme

Since LJ seems strangely quiet tonight and I'm in the midst of a bout of insomnia, I thought I'd do what everyone else is doing and look back at the year that was.

1. What did you do in 2003 that you'd never done before?

Went to my first Buffy Convention, met many of my online friends face to face; Traveled to New York, saw two Broadway shows, and, for a person who can get lost in her own city, walked from the Guggenheim to Times Square by herself without a map. :)

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

I didn't make any last year, but am contemplating making some for the coming year.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

Chris from work (one of the few people I genuinely like there), he and his wife had a baby girl.

4. Did anyone close to you die?


5. What countries did you visit?


6. What would you like to have in 2004 that you lacked in 2003?

More patience, more drive, more money, and for a certain attorney at work to wise up. ;)

7. What date from 2003 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

Other than the usual (birthdays, anniversaries, etc) none.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?

My trek through New York. That really was a big achievement for me.

I can't think of any big ones.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?


11. What was the best thing you bought?

My new cell phone plan with unlimited minutes so I can talk to many of my online friends. :)

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?

I have many friends with many fine qualities.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?

A long list of celebrities, some online 'fans', and Joe Motes has pretty much killed my interest in going to the Oakland Con.

14. Where did most of your money go?

Movies, DVD's, CD's, Cable, Magazines, Clothes, Food - the essentials. :)
