I’m stealing this list from Kitti…thanks, babe!
1) DRINKING BUDDY OF THE YEAR
Mark Newton (who now knows firsthand how cheap a date I am)
2) LIFETIME SERVICE AWARD (longest friend) –
Patrick Kramer, recent big winner of “Don’t Forget the Lyrics”!! Woohoo!!
3) NEWCOMER AWARD – COOLEST NEWEST FRIEND?
Ken Scholes — last year we were acquaintances; this year he became my closest confidante. And he still chooses to talk to me.
4) HIGH POINT OF THE YEAR?
**Hitting the New York Times Bestseller List. Two weeks in a row.
** My little sister’s wedding. Burning Down the House!!
5) LOW POINT OF THE YEAR?
I broke up with my fiance of almost 2 years in October. Trust me — you don’t know the half of it, and you don’t want to.
6) BEST HOLIDAY?
My parents are coming for Christmas. How much more awesome can it get?
7) YOUR SONG FOR 2007
“Just for Now” by Imogen Heap
8) MOVIE FOR 2007?
9) WHO DID YOU SPEND VALENTINES WITH?
Was it Natalie? Aw, heck, I can’t remember.
10) WHAT WERE YOU FOR HALLOWEEN
A Medieval Princess. (And I had my picture in the paper that day.)
11) RESTAURANT OF THE YEAR?
Oh, what was the name of that place across the street from the Saratoga Convention center at World Fantasy Con? I had the most divine chicken with a mushroom brandy sauce…mmmm…..and I learned all about how cool North Dakota isn’t.
12) BOOK OF THE YEAR?
Last Flight of the Goddess, by Ken Scholes.
“My companions will ever be my saving grace.”
13) BEST DECISION MADE THIS YEAR?
see Number 5
14) WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR NEXT YEAR?
To attend fewer conventions, but still see my friends all the same. And to write — a lot.
15) MOST STUPID IDEA WHEN DRUNK
Wasn’t drunk. Was tipsy enough to dance around Sherrilyn Kenyon’s suite, and then went straight to bed. EvylEd can testify to that one. Mark left before witnessing the aftermath. Silly boy.
16) TV SHOW OF THE YEAR?
Oooooh…tough call. Still, probably Doctor Who. David Tennant is just amazing.
17) MOST LOYAL FRIEND OF 2007?
All of them. I wouldn’t have survived otherwise. (Okay… I would have survived. But not nearly as intact.)
18) BIGGEST CHANGE OF THE YEAR?
see Number 5
19) BIGGEST DOUCHEBAG AWARD?
um…yeah. Have to go with Number 5 on that one too, really.
20) NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS?
To take care of myself, for real this time, and all on my own. To show more love to my friends and family. To CALL people more often and actually talk to them instead of emailing. To read more books that my friends write. To WRITE…a lot. To share a smile every day.
