gushy gush

year end meme

i rarely do these meme's but this one turned out so funny i just had to post it:

On the twelfth day of Christmas, madflowr sent to me...
Twelve somersaults drumming
Eleven mellosonics piping
Ten crazypandas a-leaping
Nine making mixtapes dancing
Eight zines a-milking
Seven alias a-swimming
Six aquariums a-laying
Five ve-e-e-eronica mars
Four yard sales
Three candle records
Two reckless records
...and an ebay in a band photography.
Get your own Twelve Days:

1. What did you do in 2006 that you'd never done before?
i actually had enough nerve to sing in front of someone who wasn't gavin, josh, and we worked on a song together. i was really lofty with my goals and i bought a tascam 424 but only used it maybe twice? new new year's resolution?

2. Did you keep your New Year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
i went back to try and see if i kept mine, but i think every year i make similiar ones. live like every day like it might be your last. definitely need to lose weight for health reasons in 2007.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
my famiy's next door neighbor in alexandria gave birth to a daughter mckenna, lots of my lj friends have little ones now too!

4. Did anyone close to you die?
zachary's grandmother, a neighbor here at the office lori r., a high school friend who i had reconnected with over myspace, kathy shelton. it was a sad year and is ending on more sad notes as my lj friends posted about their friend helloreplace passing, as well as james kim being found dead, and the list goes on with more friends, pets, and family members. it was a year of much loss it seems.

5. What countries did you visit?
the land of austin, tx. the land of northampton, ma. i didn't step outside of the us and haven't since i lived in germany when i was a kid. that's a resolution: GET A PASSPORT.

6. What would you like to have had in 2006 that you lacked in 2005?
a pet of my own. 2007 will bring a hedgehog and/or a dog. srsly.

7. What date from 2006 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
there were a lot of memorable days this year. meeting zachary, going to popfest new england, sxsw and meeting stacey!, participating in the renegade holiday craft fair, seeing radiohead, seeing tom waits. the list was really good this year.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
finding my boo. having people really enjoy my crafty goods.

9. What was your biggest failure?
weight gain? really, things were pretty good. maybe losing touch with some friends but i'm working on it now.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
i am a magnet for sickness. my eczema got really bad too.
