I don’t think I can type that here…Prez. Bush. Always and forever.

47 and a quarter. Or zero. Pick your favorite number.
24. What was your favorite TV program?
Will and Grace
25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year?
Nope. Don’t do the hate thing. Though a special version of intense anger is reserved for Fred Phelps and his ilk.

Return of the King. Though the new HP was good, even though it made me really really really sad.

Finding Neverland.

I was sick actually, and cried, and went to lab, and other such not cool things. But I turned 20, which was a good thing, so I spose it evens out.
32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
Knowing I can do it. Actually doing it would be even better, but having self confidence again, that’d be enough.

Uhh, getting progressively more scrubby. Oh yeah…I should shower soon.
34. What kept you sane?
Knowing that there were three who would catch me if I fell.
35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
Well, I did finally discover why people thing Johnny Depp is hot, so I’ll say him. Though Rob Thomas rocks my world, as always.

“Don’t stop believing
Hold onto that feeling.”
I could say so much more, but I think I’ll leave it at that.
