Fight Club and Fast Food Nation.

28. What did you want and get?
More of my money, which I got when I moved out of the place at Park Merced and moved to Pacifica. With the money saved, I was able to enjoy life a little bit more. O.K. I didn’t save any money, since the money was spent. But I was able to do things that I couldn’t do previously, like visit my friends and go out to the movies.

29. What did you want and not get?

30. What was your favorite film of this year?
Actually, I’m going to go with Kill Bill over LOTR:ROTK. LOTR was great, but I know I was just floored after seeing Kill Bill. And Kill Bill was the only movie that I saw twice this year.

31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
I don’t even remember. Looking back in my journal, it seems like I did nothing at all.

32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
Getting back together with Suzanne in some kind of way, either boyfriend or friend. Something besides the awkwardness and pain causing thing that we had with each other this year.

None. I got sweaters this year. I have like 5 of them. I think I started this year with 0 or 1.

Who says that I am?

California recall, hands down.

37. Who did you miss?
Too many people to count.

38. Who was the best new person you met?
Amy has to be the best new person that I met this year. (And I’m not just saying that just to make her feel guilty about leaving me out of her list on question #20 😉 )

You are your own worse enemy.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
“Gentlemen…goodnight. Ladies…Good Morning.” – Justin Timberlake/Senorita. O.K., maybe it doesn’t sum up my year, but it was def. the lyric of the year.
