Bonus NYE Entry

I was going to go to a friend's house tonight, but after an all-night stomach ache and a poor night of sleep, I decided to stay in.  So, I'm hanging with my parents watching Auburn/Virginia and sometimes "House Hunters."  There's just not much on TV.  But I guess they figure most people aren't watching.  Meh.

Anyhow, I spotted this survey on another blog and decided to do it as well ...


1. What did you do in 2011 that you’d never done before? 
Ran an entire 5K (times two), went to Vegas, was in a wedding
