25 Things: 2011 Year in Review

A number of blogs are posting the answers to this "25 Things" questionnaire and linking to each other. Hilarity in Shoes is one of them. It's kinda fun to read others' responses. Here's mine...which I think, alas, may be a little dull. I'm hoping it's dull because I have a lousy memory, and not because I became boring this year. Anyway, here we go:

1. What did you do in 2011 that you'd never done before?

I did a radio interview about my blog (with Joseph C. Phillips, sitting in for Larry Elder on his KABC show). It was a new experience so I was a little nervous. I was very conscious of how many bad tv and radio interviews I see/hear and I didn't want to be one of them. I wasn't. It actually was pretty easy…and fun. (I'm hoping he'll have me back on when my book comes out this spring.)

2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

I don't really make New Year's resolutions, though I usually re-evaluate my year/life each year on my birthday, which is in November…so I guess that's kinda like New Year's resolutions. On my birthday this year, I resolved to do two things: one interesting and exciting, the other trite and uninteresting: (1) Self-publish my book (The Spinsterlicious Life), and (2) lose the 10 extra pounds I've managed to tack on. Maybe even 15 so I have some wiggle room.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

We welcomed Anna Sofia (Traci and Tony) and Mae Ling (Michelle and Kris) to the world this year. Very exciting.

4. Did anyone close to you die?
