Yes, a couple of folk.

4. Did anyone close to you die?

Maintaining payments on stuff.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
Not as much. The surgery was the biggest impact.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
Did I buy Darthcam this year? I think it may have been late last year. The HDTV is nice. And Nookie is pretty awesome.

House stuff. Bills. Nookie.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
CONvergence and all the filmmaker happy.

16. What song will always remind you of 2008?
None, really. There wasn't a single song that was iconic enough for me this year.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:

I don't know yet.

22. Did you fall in love in 2008?

Tiff introduced me to Dexter. Head and shoulders above anything else. The Sarah Connor Chronicles has been kinda cool.

Hate doesn't much work for me. There are some people who I've had to alter my relationship with.

26. What was the best book you read?
Not one yet that's been outstanding. Some good ones. I did read Slaughterhouse Five.

Again, nothing really that stands out this year.

Big screen TV and a good DTV antenna (that I made myself).

A new camera.

30. What was your favorite film of this year?
There were some good ones. Iron Man, Dark Knight,

Offensive Knitting. Forty-something. Got some nice hugs.

Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail, a smile from a veil
