2012, Part 5. (fin.)

There’s this meme I’ve been doing for a lot of years.* I swear I did it on Facebook last year, but now I can’t find it — even with the new fancy Timeline. Whatev, Facebook. Thanks for nothing. Anyway, this is 40 questions long. I answered 8 each day for the past 4 days and tomorrow it will be 2012. Yes. Bring it.

*I’d love for you to do this, too. Either in comments or on your own blog.

(Read Part 1)    (Read Part 2)     (Read Part 3)     (Read Part 4)

33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2011?
Much more frumpy than I would have liked, but — especially in cold weather — it seems to be all that feels comfortable. I really hate cold weather clothes. I like capris and how I look in them more than long pants and I absolutely hate wearing socks. I’d like to wear clothes appropriate for 70 degrees every day. Alas…

34. What kept you sane?
Facebook. That’s sad, isn’t it? It might be. But it’s still true. The ability to both check out and check in at the same time is something I need pretty much daily and despite the bullshit and the privacy issues and the drama that can exist, I am glad it’s there and as ubiquitous as it is. I enjoy it.

35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
I don’t really “fancy” anyone — public or private — these days. I’ll always look twice at Sharon Osbourne and Taye Diggs, though. And since I’ve been watching Private Practice marathons while painting, I’ve developed a little crush on Kate Walsh. Weird because she isn’t even my “type.”

36. What political issue stirred you the most?
Nothing, you guys. It’s like I am unstirrable, politically. I still feel pretty strongly about the movie Monster, though. I re-watched it recently and cried. Again.

37. Who did you miss?
I missed my Nana. 😦

38. Who was the best new person you met?
It’s a tie between S and D. I enjoy them and look forward to spending more time with them both.

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2011.
Plan ahead. Because it’s 12:17am and I am still writing this. I had hoped to have it published before watching Dick Clark awkwardly kiss his wife without getting his several inches of pancake makeup on her cheek. (That’s not nice; I know. Poor Dick.)

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
from “Take a Breath” as performed by Elmo on the Best of Elmo album:

Take a breath
Take a breath
Smell a smell
Sniff a sniff
And take a breath
You can move your feet to walk
And you use your tongue to talk
But your mouth and nose are waiting
Take a breath
