I didn't get to keep my truck in the bargain of keeping my head above water

Moira's - sometimes.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
It fluctuates

14. Where did most of your money go?
My truck ate most of it until Nov. since then its been bills and yarn and special little xmas goodies and lots of food!

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Spinning yarn and possibly joining a group of ladies to learn more about it (even though it is a 1 hour drive to meet up with them)

16. What song will always remind you of 2003?
the Ramones selling out to a cellphone provider - that song will remind me of the year of the sellout.

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
I try not to actually "HATE" anyone but I do still strongly dislike some of my mom's siblings more and more every year. Oh, and I did add one of my cousins to that list. Why can't people be nice and decent.

26. What was the best book you read?
hmm, I enjoyed reading the LOTR series, I re-read "little women" and "the Jungle" which will always be favorites (I think that's why I keep reading them again and again)

Dropkick Murphy's, there are a few otheres, but thats the one that I couldn't believe I hadn't paid attention to as it really wasn't obscure.

happy healthy family

Succesful year in Pottery

My birthday isn't until the 30th - but I doubt I will do anything different than the usual .

32.What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
Being able to spend time with my family without having to worry about working my ass off and try to scrape up money. More outdoor hiking and family field trips. I need to be outside more.

33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2003?
I think I fell deeper into the "punk" look (although isn't everything punk look these days) Maybe its the rest of the world that started to dress mroe punky?

34. What kept you sane?
Forcing myself to relax and knit more.

35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
No one really

36. What political issue stirred you the most?
hmmm - the war was pretty big and dominated the first half of the year and then the last half has really been about gay rights (not just marriage but how in many states if you are gay then you have less rights it seems and this state is one that seems to have a hard time with that)

37. Who did you miss?
My friends in CA (Kent, Martin, Scott, Luz) and Sara in Sweden.

38. Who was the best new person you met?
the only new people I've really met and became at least partially acquanted with were on the internet and I've met so many interesting people here.

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2003
Put things down and go do something relaxing, you'll feel better.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year
One couldn't possibly sum it up

Hmmm - didn't do anything for me one way or the other.
