End of year meme

This is quite Myspace of me, but whatever. At least I'm posting here.

As 2007 comes to an end...

1) Where did you begin 2007?

At an overcrowded party on the Upper East Side with the woman I was dating at the time. We should have just stayed home.

2) What was your status by Valentine’s Day?

Single, cold.

3) Were you in school (anytime this year)?

I went to a Linux training class in August.

4) How did you earn your money?

Doing the same job I've had for the past seven years.

5) Did you have to go to the hospital?

Just for my other job with HealthTV, not for any actual health problems.

6) Did you have any encounters with the police?


7) Where did you travel this year?

DC, Johnstown. Wow, I haven't wandered much. That would explain the surplus of vacation time.

8) What did you purchase that was over $1,000?

My HDTV and my new sofa.

9) Did you know anybody who got married?

Some friends in the orchestra.

10) Did you know anybody who passed away?

No, and thank God for that.

13) What concerts/shows did you go to?

The Police at MSG, Madama Butterfly at the Met, Avenue Q on Broadway

14) Are you registered to vote?

Yes, but I didn't vote this year. In my defense, it was an off-off-year election.

15) Who did you want to win Dancing with the Stars?

I don’t watch it.

16) Where do you live now?

The Upper East Side of Manhattan, in the same apartment I've had for the past four years.

17) Describe your birthday?

It's next week, but it will include taking the day off work, probably dinner, and maybe a movie. I'm easy to please.

18) What's one thing you thought you'd never do but did in 2007?

Go to a meetup of online friends and have one of the best nights of the year.

19) What has been your favorite moment?

Watching the New York Philharmonic season premiere concert in Lincoln Square with Kate.

20) What's something you learned about yourself?

I'm doing better on my own than I ever thought possible.

21) Any new additions to your family?

My cat Grady

22) What was your best month?


23) What music will you remember 2007 by?

Icky Thump by the White Stripes, Paul Hindemith's Symphonic Metamorphoses, Barber's Violin Concerto

24) Who has been your best drinking buddy?

My friends from work.

The Deadspin night at Shea is a close second to the NY Philharmonic concert in Lincoln Center with Kate.

What, I don't get any drinking buddy props for our night of drunken debauchery at the Gaf? Phil, I'm hurt. :).
