Yup, it's ANOTHER of these surveys. This is somewhat more interesting than watching my boyfriend's brother pace around on the phone trying to console his insane girlfriend.


1. What did you do in 2006 that you'd never done before?
Zombie-walked, wore my own homemade garb to faires (real stuff, not just a corset and skirts I threw together the night before and not my middle/high school drama teacher's stuff like I used to wear for years), drank legally, larp'd, wrote all over the walls of a museum, discovered a waterfall, played Gaia Online, hit my head on a grizzly bear's jaw, shaved a heart into someone's back hair, was hit on by a girl wearing nothing but chainmail, saw Hedwig performed and not shadow-casted, held a cat just before it was put to sleep, stood in as a judge for a wet T-shirt contest and shouted out things like, "That shirt doesn't do her justice!!," volunteered at Anime Expo, beat a Final Fantasy game, was blessed by a Mexican woman with an urn, went to Lebowski Fest, Oktoberfest, an oxygen bar, and several museums I hadn't been to before.

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Did keep most of my resolutions (my 2006 list in the resolutions thread), and more than likely I'll pretty much just keep to the same list.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
YES! Christina (Kittybob on the board) unexpectedly had Jayne.

4. Did anyone close to you die?
Willie, but he wasn't my cat.

5. What countries did you visit?
Mexico.

6. What would you like to have in 2007 that you lacked in 2006?
More time and money for everything, but we'll have to see how '07 unfurls.

7. What date from 2006 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
There really wasn't a single day that just stands out so much that only that day sticks in my memory. I'd say St. Patrick's Day (as well as most of March), July, September, and December stick out pretty nicely.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Getting my journalism certificate and passing my math assessments. There were many, smaller but no less important victories throughout the year, though.

9. What was your biggest failure?
No real failures. If there was anything, it was small like, "Awww. The line to get an autograph from that artist was a ticketed event and I didn't get one."

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
Didn't suffer, but my right knee's starting to creak when I walk up steps.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
Cheap CDs and DVDs at the Tower that's closing.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?
Not sure. Mewes for being sober over 3 years and winning that bet with Kevin, thus making Clerks 2.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
The perpetual media circus, but that doesn't depress me or appall me so much.

14. Where did most of your money go?
Conventions, concert tickets, food.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Comic-Con, Lebowski Fest, Dead Walk L.A., faire season.

16. What song will always remind you of 2006?
"Danse Macabre" since it perpetually reminds me of Dia de los Muertos this year after going to all those festivals for it.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
i. happier or sadder?
About the same, but possibly more content.

ii. thinner or fatter?
Also about the same, if not fatter.

iii. richer or poorer?
Richer in some ways, but not in those concerning money. About the same in that I'm consistently broke, but able to manage.

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?
Kept up more with things going on in other places and gone to more cons. I probably should have eaten healthier and meditated more, but that's something to work on in '07.

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?
Spending so much time on the computer doing nothing of consequence when I should be doing more important things. Oops.

20. How will you be spending Christmas?
Christmas eve was spent with my mom's family coming over to my house. Went to Las Posadas with Zabuza and Zoso in the old Mexican part of town. Christmas was a dinner party with my Zoso's family.

22. Did you fall in love in 2006?
Was already in love.

23. How many one-night stands?
None.

24. What was your favorite TV program?
Heroes, My Name is Earl, Mythbusters, and Firefly.

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
Nope. And questions like these are self-destructive.

26. What was the best book you read?
Hardcore Zen (by Brad Warner), Brave New World (by Aldous Huxley), The Heart of Understanding (by Thich Nhat Hanh), Geek Love (by Katherine Dunn).

27. What was your greatest musical discovery?
Dog Faced Gods. Only because Voidcrush had been performing with them a few times near the end of '06 and they're pretty metal.

28. What concerts did you go to in 2006?
Flogging Molly, Poxy Boggards a few times, Gwar, Bad Religion, Scotch Greens, Municipal Waste, Voidcrush many times, Dog Faced Gods, All Else Fails, Costanza, and a bunch of other bands I don't really remember like those who played conventions and festivals.

30. What was your favorite films of this year?
Assuming we're only talking the new ones of this year: Adam & Steve, Densha Otoko, Clerks 2, Renaissance, A Scanner Darkly, Fuck, Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny.

31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
I turned 21 and had a midnight pub crawl with a few friends the moment the clock hit 12 the night before my birthday. Got a whole lot of free booze. On my birthday, went to pole dancing club with friends just for shits.

32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
Probably being able to drive or get out of transfer out of LBCC (I have the credits to do it, just gotta get that math). More cons.

33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2006?
Ragged and comfortable.

34. What kept you sane?
Getting out of the house to run off to strange places on a whim and having Zoso by my side to help me along in my crazy adventures.

35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
Jason Lee, Masi Oka, Adam Baldwin, Trey Parker.

36. What political issue stirred you the most?
Ralph Horowitz foreclosing on the South Central Farm to build a Wal*Mart warehouse over the land that was allotted to feed 350 poor families in L.A. Raised money to try and save the farm, but we still came up $5 million short. Fucking Horowitz.

37. Who did you miss?
I still sort of miss my old friend, James, whom I haven't seen since high school.

38. Who was the best new person you met?
Best new person? I'm going with Dragonfly's friend Sarah. Although I'd met her before, re-meeting her and getting to talk with her one night was pretty great. Also Xenocanon, I don't quite remember his real name, but he's this spiffy person whom I geek out with through PMs on a couple boards.

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2006:
There's a massive difference between being a person who sits and listens and one who listens, but more concentrates on what to say next.
No matter what the movie's always going to be worse, so stop sweating it.
Read the directions.
Don't live in a world of "If only..."
Oxygen is your friend.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
"... But trust me on the sunscreen."
