Saturday 9 -- Crazy Sam's Last Meme of 2008

1. What was the best thing that happened to you personally in 2008? Taking my nephew to his very first Cub game, during the magical 2008 season where they ended up with the best record in the National League.

2. What was the worst thing that happened to you personally in 2008? The Cubs breaking my heart by folding like a cheap umbrella during the playoffs. (Yes, that did happen to me personally. My relationship with my team is intense and heartfelt.)

3. What was the best thing to happen to all of us in 2008? Barack Obama. Or, more precisely, the way we responded to Barack Obama. Being in Grant Park on Election Night restored my faith in America and what we can do if we pull together. It was a truly inspiring night.

4. What was the worst thing to happen to all of us in 2008? The economy, and the panic it has caused in so many lives. (Mine included.)

5. What was the best gift you receive during the ’08 holidays? The birthday/Christmas combo from my best friend. It's nice to be known so well.

6. What was the best gift (most appropriate or best received) you gave during the ’08 holidays? I got two of the moms on my Christmas list 5x7 wooden photo frames with their kids' names inlaid. I thought the frames were neat, but I was surprised and tickled to see how much these women loved them.

7. Do you have any regrets about what you did in 2008? See below.

8. Do you have any regrets about what you didn’t do in 2008? I didn't lose weight, I didn't organize my den, I didn't do something (anything!) about about my hideous bathroom.

9. Did you meet anyone that became important to you in 2008? No. Isn't that weird? Maybe I better get out more.

Play along yourself:

  1. You accomplished quite a lot, Gal. The things you focused on (whether completed or not) were important.
    Good intentions won't organize the bathroom but it's a start.

  4. My day las been a Cubs fan since he was ten. I am a Yankee fan (that's why disowned me at age 12) but trust me, the time I went to Chicago I saw a Cubs v. Cards game at Wrigley. What a great ball park! And like it or not, you have made new friends right here in the blogosphere!
