and to all a good 2008...

Well, another year is almost over, and again, I've failed to accomplish most of the things on my list of things to do in 2007.

So, because I *heart* lists of questions, I've created a little questionnaire all about the new year and things less about the new year. Please feel free to share your answers - we love to learn more about our reading public.

1) on a scale of 1977 (or year of birth) to 2007, how would you rate 2007?

i'd put 2007 somewhere in the middle. 2004 was by far the most impactful, having been the year i got married and bought a house, and got a dog. and i can't really judge the earliest years, but i can tell you that the year i got a stroller for christmas was up there with the all time best years ever. i recall a lot of barbie time and glamour gal time -- i'd guess it may have been the year I was 6. so i think my favorite years went something near this order: 1977 (how can you beat that first year?), 2004, 1994, 1985, 1986, 2005 (two nephews in one year), 1978, 1979, 1980, 1982 (1981= year i had chicken pox on my birthday), 1983, 1984, 2007.. and then the rest kind of fill in from there.

2) what new year's resolution did you not fulfill in 2006? what *did* you stick to?

i believe it's safe to say my resolution to blog more. i had resolved, however, to stress about work less. i think that while i still work way long hours, etc, i've done a good job not venting or carrying too much stress home with me.

3) what one thing do you want to accomplish in 2008?

i'd like to learn conversational french (thank you, j, for the audio Berlitz "learn to speak french in your car" set) and then, possibly, italian.

4) what was your favorite thing about 2007?

kat's wedding was the most fun and memorable thing, hands down.

5) what will you do different in 2008 that you did this year?

i will aim to take more pictures. i think it'd help me remember the year better if i put together a "year in review" slideshow for myself, kind of like all of those news programs do.

Bonjour mon cher SJ, espèrent que vous appréciez vos leçons françaises!

And other such things in a French accent! There is an old show from England called Allo Allo, if you ever get the chance to watch, it is hysterical. I do a very good impression of one of the French tarts calling after her love "Renee"! It almost sounds like I am going to hack something unpleasant up! When we get together for martinis I will demonstrate!

We'll have to practice your French skills the next time we get together!
