Okay I did a quiz.  
1.What did you do in 2009 that you'd never done before?:
failed a class, participated in a spoon train, wore dark red lipstick, had three different haircuts

2. Did you keep your New Year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?:
I don't usually bother with New Year's resolutions, as they're never really kept

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?:
no, but my Texas uncle announced last night that his wife Anne-Marie is eight weeks in

4. Did anyone close to you die?:
no, thank goodness, but I'm still kinda reeling over losing my Granny in November 2008.  Oh, and I hear Ten is on his way out...

5. What countries did you visit?:
Canada!  More specifically, Québec, and it was the first time I've ever seen things like stop signs that say "ARRÊT"

6. What would you like to have in 2010 that you lacked in 2009?:
I'd like to be zen more often without constantly worrying about frenemies... in fact, I'd like to rid myself of frenemies.

7. What dates from 2009 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?:
I'm like a man with dates--I can't remember them at all.  I even have trouble with my father's birthday.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?:
becoming more self-aware when it comes to friendships and learning that I have to be careful about how much my friends can influence my attitude towards anything and everyone

9. What was your biggest failure?:
treating my hallmates (especially Kat) so badly at the beginning of fall semester.  I missed out on time I could have spent being awesome with people like Leigh and Kelley.  Oh, and COMP 110.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?:
I got sick every once in a while, but I'm pretty resilient.

11. What was the best thing you bought?:(was bought for you)
Best thing I bought: maybe Edwob? Best thing bought for me: the disco ball

Mine and Frenemy #1and #2.

14. Where did most of your money go?:
ridiculous stuff on eBay and the Québec trip.

Linky Pinky, the Repo soundtrack, the Mozart l'Opéra Rock soundtrack, the Elisabeth Wien cast, Total Eclipse of the Heart

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
i) ...happier or sadder?:
About the same, but in a different way.  I haven't started missing Joyner yet because I'm one of those people who loves recharging on my own, but I'm very excited to go back.  VERY EXCITED.

ii) thinner or fatter?:
people tell me I look like I've lost weight, so I'll take their word for it

iii) richer or poorer?:

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?:
been nice to other people on the hall

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?:
playing the Sims (though that was pretty wonderful, to be honest)

presents in the morning, then Stacy comes over and we watch that Sherlock Holmes movie and then THE NEW DOCTOR WHO OH SWEET RASSILON I AM SO AFRAID

Doctor Who (always), The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, Project Runway, 30 Rock, Scrubs, True Blood, SNL, Merlin

I barely read on my own time anymore, dang internet, but I ADORE "Les Liaisons dangereuses" and Antonia Fraser's bio of Marie Antoinette

I don't usually think like that, to be honest, but... more hours at work?

I gotta say, since Dangerous Liaisons is old and Repo technically came out last year, the best film I've seen so far this year was Star Trek

31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?:
20, and my parents took me out to dinner, my friends took me out to lunch, and Stacy showed up and we watched Elisabeth

37. Who did you miss?:
my Granny

38. Who was the best new person you met?:
Right now the answer to that is KELLEY because she's been watching Doctor Who for the past week and saying she loves it.  She called Tennant a sexypants.  Which is why she's awesome.  Also, I've definitely heard her singing some Les Mis and she's friends with Stacy London for chrissakes.

Hmmm wow.  Well, that one time Terrance Zdunich emailed us back... or when me and Kat stayed up till 2am trying to stalk David Tennant online, giggling and working not to fall off the futon... or one of our recent spoon trains... or that time in the car on the way back from Québec when we all started singing Die Schatten werden länger... or watching series two of Doctor Who with Tara and weeping together through Doomsday (I actually cried harder when Pete and Jackie got together than at Bad Wolf Bay)... or creating our inbred family tree on the Sims 2 last spring... or when we were watching that new Harry Potter movie and  misatheredpanda leaned over and whispered "Malfoy has wet himself with blood."

42. What was your least favourite moment of the year?
the beginning of fall semester when I thought I didn't have any friends because the only people I was allowing myself to be friends with were treating me like crap and talking bad behind my back.  I was missing out on so many good times with nice, happy, good people...
