Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Nope. Carpe diem. I did join the gym to get into better shape for skiing/boarding. And am on the way thought it's not a linear path. Re-starting ice skating lessons--whether I get any better or not--is helping too. Do you think "this" just frickin' happens?

Did anyone close to you give birth?
I didn't hear any sounds or step in any puddles and no wise men showed up. So I guess not.

Did anyone close to you die?
No. But I've had relatively few people close to me ever die.

What countries did you visit?
USA, Iceland, Hong Kong, Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia & Hercegovina, the Netherlands, Poland, Latvia and Lithuania.

What would you like to have in 2012 that you lacked in 2011?
Energy. Not that I mind falling asleep so early.

What date from 2011 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
Since I'd have to look at my calendar to answer this one...none.

What was your biggest achievement of the year?
The world is no worse off for me being in it. And possibly a bit better.

What was your biggest failure?
German and I didn't get along. But I don't count that as failure. Nothing comes to mind.

Did you suffer illness or injury?
Colds, flus, a nasty fungal infection. I've had IBS for yonks but that's been pretty stable. Oh, migraines. They suck.

What was the best thing you bought?
My Sony NEX-5 camera. I totally get why people spend what I (previously) consider(ed) stoopid $ on a camera: much much much better photos. [ profile] querrelle got me a telephoto lens for it for Christmas--I'm set!

Whose behaviour merited celebration?
[ profile] querrelle's been naughty and nice. He's a good man. And my great friends [ profile] toneyvr and Winnie (who is not on LJ)!

Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed?
Stephen Harper's. Obama's. Cameron's. Most of the EU leadership. All of Washington. All public; not enough service. 

Where did most of your money go?
Mortgage, bills, gadgets, trips, Lays™ low salt crack.

What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Almost every single fucking day! 4 real!

What song will always remind you of 2011?
Ah hird tha yooo se'ul down tha yooo foun a girl an yor married no-ow-ow.

Compared to this time last year, are you
As happy, rich and thin (or sad, poor and fat) as far as I can tell.

What do you wish you'd done more of?
Snowboarding and skiing and rollerblading and cycling

What do you wish you'd done less of?
Lays™ low salt crack.

Did you fall in love in 2011?How many one-night stands?What was your favorite TV programme?Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
OK these are all lame. Next question!

What was the best book you read?
The Tiger's Wife by Téa Obrecht. Marvellous novel!

What did you want and get/not want and not get?

OK that's it--sorry for losing my head of steam.
