It's a wrap on 2010

What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before? Saw a lawyer. For lawyer purposes. Sang along to Gigantic with Kim Deal.
Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year? I didn't make any NYRs last year, or have any goals. This year I would like to finish Harper's blanket, run a 10km, and do a head stand.
Did anyone close to you die? No, I'm happy to say.
What countries did you visit? Does Johnsonville count as another country?
What would you like to have in 2011 that you lacked in 2010? An overseas holiday. Somewhere sunny and warm and with easy access to Pimm's.
What date from 2010 will remain etched upon your memory, and why? September 4, the day fo the Cantebury Earthquake. I thought it was just a small one, until I turned on the telly.
What was your biggest achievement of the year? Running for 20 minutes on December 11. The last great thing I did as a 37-year-old.
What was your biggest failure? Not running 25 minutes on December 22.
Did you suffer illness or injury? Actually, I've only had one cold this year. Touch wood.
What was the best thing you bought? Helston Heights.
Whose behaviour merited celebration? The parents of wee Nayan Woods, the four-year-old boy killed when a car hit him. His parents forgave the driver, and the driver spent time getting to know the family.
Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed? Sarah Palin. Just. Go. Away.
Where did most of your money go? Helston Heights. And will do for the next gzillion years.
What did you get really, really, really excited about? When we won the tender for Helston Heights. It was our seventh offer on a house in two years.
What song will always remind you of 2010? There are so many, but as I gaze out my 5th floor window, Jay-Z's Empire State of Mind comes to mind. Also, the theme music to The Wire.
What do you wish you'd done more of? I wish I had discovered running sooner. I was also rather slack on the blogging front...
Did you fall in love in 2010? Does Jimmy McNulty count?
What did you want and get? I've wanted to see Pixies live since I was 18; I've wanted to see Pavement live again since I first saw them in 1997, and seeing U2 again was a really fun night out in the big city. Thanks Liz!
What did you want and not get? Still haven't won lotto, or set up River Cottage style gardens at Helston Heights. Yet.
