Review 2009: Subjectively Speaking

The subject this time being me and my year, the questions being asked by a meme.

1. Where did you begin 2009?
At home. I have up on the new year celebration years ago. Too much expectation leading to too much disappointment.

2. What was your status by Valentines Day?
Single. Again.

3. Were you in school anytime this year?
Oddly enough, yes. But only because a friend lives in a flat there now. Or he did. I’m not sure if it’s the past tense.

4. Did you have to go to the hospital?
To pick my Dad up from an eye operation. Cataracts. He can now see far better out of one eye than the other.

5. Did you have any encounters with the police?
Other than asking directions somewhere, no.

6. Where did you go on vacation?
Stratford Upon Avon, finally. Then London, finally. It’s been a busy year.

A DVD PVR recorder. Which has been very, very busy over Christmas.

Worked. Chippy tea.
