I don’t often participate in these Memes, usually because I have enough topics of conversation smashing around in my head, begging to be unleashed upon the defenseless blogosphere, and expanded upon in a post.
However, I’m in the mood to write tonight, and other than a very uneventful evening with the children at the movie theatre where we went to see Life as We Know It starring Kathering Hegl, who I would most definitely dry-hump if I wasn’t already married, I’m currently embroiled in mentally debating whether I should post pictures of the new outfits I bought on Boxing day or opt for provocative bikini shots which have fueled my notoriety as the biggest and best narcissist of our time.
But when I was reading Coffeypot’s questions and answers, I thought this is the sort of post that would permit me to opportunity to revisit last year, and tie 2010 up in a nice little bow.
So without further ado:
1. What did you do in 2010 that you’d never done before?
I got through the most difficult class of my life in nursing school without:
a) ever running screaming from the class…
…I did however, once quietly exit the classroom and go to my car where I cried… but not once did I run out screaming.
b) calling any of the teachers any mean names to their faces
c) becoming a meth addict and ending up homeless
2. What countries did you visit?
…that counts right?
Where else in the world do giant rats rule the land, charge exorbitant amounts of money for a big-ass piece of ham disguised as a turkey leg, and mothers are allowed to drag their screaming little girls around by their tiaras?
3. What would you like to have in 2011 that you lacked in 2010?
A ticket to Blogher Conference 2011 in San Diego, California; all expenses paid; a deluxe room in the best hotel (please no bedbugs) complete with in-suite hottub, meals, and fouffy drinks handed to me everytime I set foot in the lobby…
…come on, the ticket itself is a fantasy, why not make the entire request a really swanky one.
4. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Not maiming or killing anybody while at Disneyworld.
This would include other guests, Disney characters, my children, and especially my husband…
…because not everybody wants to march their way through “It’s a Small Fucken World!” Wayne, as though the military had orders to conquer it and plant a fucken flag there.
5. What was the best thing you bought?
Bought? The best thing I bought? For myself?
People with kids buy stuff for themselves?…
6. Whose behavior merited celebration?
Wayne, my husband.
Despite the fact that I make fun of him, he lets me blog about it so he doesn’t actually read the blogs, so what, right?
7. Whose behavior made you appalled and disgusted?
The other mothers at the studio where my daughter dances: Ladies, quit living vicariously through your daugthers.
Not only is it pathetic, but then I’m forced to blog about it
8. What song will always remind you of 2010?
“Listen to the Music” by the Doobie Brothers – it’s my ring tone.
So what if I break out into a loud rendition everytime my cell phone rings?
9. What do you wish you’d done more of?
Blown my husband…
I said I wish I’d done more of it, it doesn’t mean it’s ever been done or will ever get done.
It’s just that I suspect it would make up for all the shit I write about him in here.
10. What do you wish you’d done less of?
Watched fewer episodes of ”Toddlers in Tiaras.”
I’m pretty sure I lose IQ points every time I yell at the TV, “Anybody ever heard of Jonbennet Ramsey?”
11. Did you fall in love in 2010?
Can I count myself?…no?…how ’bout my straightening iron? Can I use that as my answer?
12. Who was the best new person you met?
And although I’ve only met Jen over at bootyandbrains who I adore and hope to meet again one day, I have forged deep and meaningful connections with several people in the blogger world.
I do hope to have the opportunity one day to sit, have a drink (preferably a meal with dessert), and enjoy the feeling of reconnecting with long lost friends.
Blogher 2011 here we come?
Well, perhaps not, but we can dream.
Happy New Year to all and to all a good night…wait, I think Santa said that, right?
