Questionnaire snagged from:
1.) Where did you ring in 2006?
Ehm... at home alone (hubby and I), for the first time ever on NYE. Good times.
2.) What was your status by Valentine's Day?
Still very happily married, 5 years and counting, thank you. :)
3.) Were you in school (anytime this year)?
Nope... taught myself a whole bunch of stuff though.
4.) How did you earn your keep?
Associate creative director in advertising... wow that sound so corporate.
5.) Did you have to go to the hospital?
6.) Did you encounter the police?
Yes actually, once in the middle of the night last spring break an officer knocked on our door (at 2 a.m. on a week day - yawn) to let us know we needed to collect our trashcan that some punks had kicked down the hill. Luckily his rookie partner had already collected all the trash that had fallen out on the way down... Aahhh the joys of homeownership.
7.) Where did you go on vacation?
My family's vineyard in south of France, visiting family in Sweden, from there a couple of daytrips to Denmark and Norway, plus the lovely airport in Amsterdam (but I s'pose that does not count). Oh, hey... that was 2005! ... brain meltdown... WHERE HAS THIS YEAR GONE?????
8.) What did you purchase that was over $500?
Hubby and I both got hybrid Trek bikes.
9.) Did you know anybody who got married?
Nope, we did have a wedding cancellation though... they called it off right after we had received the invite. Crazy kids...
10.) Do you know anybody who passed away?
Four goldfish... R.I.P. Chokora, Merlin, Koyuki, Fantasia
11.) Have you run into anybody you graduated high school with?
Nope, I'm about 5,000 miles away from where I went to high school, so probability would be pretty slim.
12.) Did you move anywhere?
13.) What sporting events did you go to?
Heh... sports?!? We did however watch Tour de France from the living room couch for 3 weeks last summer, does that count?

16.) If so, did you do your patriotic duty on Nov. 7?
17.) Where do you live now?
Port Orchard on the lovely peninsula.
18.) Describe your birthday.
Ahhh... hmmmm... can't recall. We've gotten too practical about these things. (Note to self: celebrate good enough to remember it next year.)

Working too much thus neglecting friends.

The month we decided to move back home (to Sweden), I think it was in August.
24.) What from pop culture will you remember 2006 by?
The whole mess. I cannot believe how obsessed we all are by pop culture... You just cannot escape it! I honestly could give a rat’s ass weather 'ol Brit is out partyin' without panties again, y'all.
25.) How would you rate this year with a scale from 1 (shitty) to 10 (excellent)?
I would have to say... 7.
