Year in Review

A little early, but I'm away visiting glenatron tomorrow night and ... I'll probably be sleeping on the 31st. :/ Yeh, I'm rock 'n' roll.

Best Of 2011
Album: "Tiurida", Falkenbach
Gig: I can't decide! And I hardly went to any gigs this year! Ummm ... Sonata Arctica, in March. :3 Because they ALWAYS make me happy. <3
Movie: Hmm ... Sucker Punch?
Book:* "The Lions Of Al-Rassan", Guy Gavriel Kay
Horsey moment: The birth of Magic, Beatrice's baby girl, of course!
General moment: The voyage of the Saxonia...

* As in, book I read in 2011, not one that was published this year ... I don't tend to keep up with new books.

In 2011...
Countries I visited: Wales (twice) and Americaaaa! Also Canada, technically.
New things I did: Wow, this will be a fairly big list. Except the first thing I can think of is somewhat TMI. Uh ... so is the second. BUT. The family friendly list of new things what I have done this year:
- sailed a boat!
- visited America/left Europe/flew by myself/took a long haul flight
- met rainechan <3 <3
- met allezbleu! :D
- learnt to throw axes/throwing knives/shuriken
- went to a Renaissance Fair
- rode Western (or at least, I sat on Zorro and called it riding... :P)
- painted my face and cantered around in the dark on an 18.2hh horse
- dressed as a knight and rode into the local churchyard (on an 18hh horse...)
- had a go at throwing a lasso!
- started to learn an (old) new language - my Anglo-Saxon is by no means fluent, but I can recognise simple words. And know how to pronounce them. XD
I feel there are probably more...

Pepsi trying to kill me in January...

I have these dated as January 5th, did we celebrate zsazsaroar's birthday late or was I slack in uploading? Either way: myself and pinkkatie86 playing Pan's Labyrinth at zsazsaroar's day of birth celebrations in London.

Would have ridden Cash more often if you had your riding gear with you more often ;p

I'm glad to have featured in your year in review. You're pretty central to mine...

Yes, but I'm not going to haul it all the way down there with me every visit just on the offchance that we'll ride - that would also be incredibly rude of me! :P
