The year just gone
It is January 3rd and I’m yet to post my reflections about the year that has just ended And when stress and an attack of writer’s block has you frozen a good meme may just equal a good post. (If anyone has seen a good new years meme please suggest it to me). I do hope to find the time to do a re-cap of 2010 post before the end of January as it was a pretty monumental year for me.
So without further Ado I introduce you to my answers for the 2010 meme that I believe started with Jenn.nu or at least entered the sex blog-o-sphere via her
1.What did you do in 2010 that you’d never done before?
Sat in seats (and bad seats at that) instead of being backstage or on the fence in the moshpit – Metallica Brisbane October 18th 2010. Oh and squirting – but not sure which was more monumental.
2.Did you keep your new years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
There weren’t really any specific New Years resolutions that I made at the beginning of 2010. I had made the resolution to not txt B as our relationship got really screwed up in 2009 and I just wanted to put him behind me. I managed to stick to it until he got back in touch with me in Febuary.
Late in the year I made it my goal to get at least one Australian company on board for sex toy reviews, it was going to be a 2011 New Years resolution – but it has already happened, with great thanks to Femplay Australia!
More of my New Years resolutions and goals will be up soon.
3.Did anyone close to you give birth?
ummm, yes, my best friends sister had a little girl on the most legendary date for a birthday – May 10th
4.Did anyone close to you die?
I know that someone did, but I’m at a loss to recall whom
5.What countries did you visit?
Australia, Australia and Australia – unless Brisbane counts??
6.What would you like to have in 2011 that you lacked in 2010?
Positive self esteem and a Google Page Rank for my lil ole blog
7.What date from 2010 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
Australia Day – Jan 26th – but not sure why. May 24th, October 19th – Metallica and September 25th when by beautiful cousin got married in an amazing ceremony.
8.What was your biggest achievement of the year?
I think that learning to and discovering that I could squirt was a pretty monumental thing, as was getting a cheque from one of my sex toy affiliates.
9.What was your biggest failure?
Not getting my centrelink dramas sorted out was a pretty big fail for 2010.
10.Did you suffer illness or injury?
I missed the bottom step as I walked out of the supermarket and went splat on the foot path, severely twisting and rolling my ankle. It blew up like a football and I was on crutches for 6 weeks.
11.What was the best thing you bought?
By far it was my WeVibe2 from Adult Toys Corner – best $90 I ever spent. I wouldn’t be who I am today, nor would I have my blog, or all my other toys without it 🙂
12.Whose behaviour merited celebration?
hmm, X for sticking it out in a shit job and for being kind enough to lend me the money to cover my share of the bills etc after my whole centerlink debacle.
13.Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed?
My Cousin’s soon to be wife snubbing me & my family at my other cousin’s wedding. And not only that, she invited my aunt from Tasmania up for the wedding (she’s met her 2 or maybe 3 times) whilst completely snubbing me. This not only hurt me, but it hurts my son. He loves his uncle Josh so much that this breaks my heart. Sadly I don’t think Josh knows as at his twin sister’s wedding he was talking about seeing my boy at his wedding. Everyone in my family will be there except for us. Seriously hurt over it and just don’t know what to do.
14.Where did most of your money go?
Centerlink took it away!! apart from that I guess cigarettes.
15.What events did you get really, really, really excited about?
By far Metallica again!
16.What song will always remind you of 2010?
Good to me by the white stripes
17.Compared to this time last year, are you:
i.happier or sadder? happier, more stressed out but happier
ii.thinner or fatter? Not sure, probably about the same
iii.richer or poorer? Poorer, seriously poorer. I think I’ve got $2 to my name lol <- but see im still laughin and Smilin 🙂
18.What do you wish you’d done more of?
more blog posts, and more ‘living’ if you get what I mean.
19.What do you wish you’d done less of?
hurting, crying and moping
20.How will you be spending Christmas?
Ughh. Spent it with X’s parents, will not be doing it again this year.
21.Who did you spend the most time on the phone with?
by far X. With him only around once a week the majority of our communication is via phone. If you were asking about text messages it would be, be far B. Probably spent more time texting him than I did talking to X.
22.Did you fall in love in 2010?
I fell Deeper in love with those I already loved
23. How many one-night stands?
uh.. none. Last one night stand was in like 1995 lol
24. What was your favorite TV program?
United states of Tara, and Big Love were my two big new tv show finds.
25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year?
26. What was the best book you read?
Hourglass – The third in the Evernight Series by Claudia Gray it’s a bit of a twilight style rip off series, but I kinda love it.
I also just finished reading Ron Jeremy’s biography ‘The Hardest (working) Man In Show Business’ – it was kinda mediocre but rather revealing on a psychological level, will try to do a review post if I can get the chance.
27. What was your greatest musical discovery or rediscovery?
Metallica – again!
28. What did you want and get?
the second chance I wanted but blew
29. What did you want and not get?
a third chance

omg I cant recall, Possibly Kick Ass, really enjoyed that or Whip it! Ellen page and Drew Barrymore are stupendously hot, and I have a thing for roller derby girls!!
31.What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
I turned 31 – gasp! saw AC/DC – pretty monumental
32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
Getting my Centrelink dramas sorted and back on track would’ve changed an awful lot of things and made 2010 much much better.
33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2010?
I cant say I really have a fashion concept – unless striped socks and Doc Martens count as a fashion concept!
34. What kept you sane?
The internet funnily enough.
35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most/least?
Dave Grohl, Dave Grohl & Dave Grohl. I dare say that would be my answer next year too 😛
36. What political issue stirred you the most?
The screw up with the Federal Election and the hung parliament thing. Glad labour got in, but wish it hadn’t been due to that one idiot. Can you tell I don’t pay all that much attention to that kind of thing.
37. Whom did you miss?
My nan. She passed away in 2008 and I miss her nearly every single day.
38. Who was the best new person you met?
My girls. I love my girls Bec & Jodie and miss them too since they moved to Queensland.
39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2010:
Sometimes you can have your cake and eat it too, but it takes a lot of work and usually it involves making a second cake!
40.Quote a song that sums up your year:
Not sure if it fully sums up all of 2010 but it is certainly my current theme song!
And now it’s time to finally focus on the new year.
