Eleven things about 2011

On this, the second day of 2012, I'd like to take a look back at 11 things that made 2011 such a great year. (By no means is this a complete list, mind you.)

In no particular order,although this first one's pretty dang special:
  • Spending the entire year being Mrs. Curtis, and celebrating one year of marriage in October.
  • Taking a variety of trips—to Sun River, to Marfa and to Cupertino—with good friends and family.
  • Getting healthy and losing 30 pounds. (Definitely need to get back into the eating healthy/exercising frequently routine ... the holidays are just so darn delicious!)
  • Receiving a promotion at work.
  • And similarly, taking advantage/being given opportunities to write for online publications that better fit my personal interests. (io9, gadchick)
  • Excellent superhero movies from Marvel—Captain America, Thor and X-Men: First Class.
  • Moving into a larger apartment and getting to decorate to my heart's content.
  • Being healthy, overall. No major injuries or illnesses last year for Colt or for me.
  • Taking the plunge and getting my half-sleeve tattoo. (It's all done! Photos soon.)
  • Finding out just what I was missing by never watching Supernatural.
  • Making new friends via this blog. You're all such wonderful people! I can't wait to get to know you better in 2012.


  1. Your year sounds magnificent! I hope 2012 is even better. MUAH!

  2. Excellent year. T'was a good year for me too. Finally out of the gutter and moving in to a new flat. etc, etc.... Hope 2012 brings you even more love, success and happiness! :-)
