8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?

Rent and taxes took a lot. And going out did too.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Thatís a lot of reallys, and I donít really do really really excited. I was happy when I achieved things on the PlayStation snowboarding game, and when I got free stuff at work. Oh, I was very very excited about seeing Duran Duranís first London show for 18 years.

I will have to agree with how-I-lie and say Beyonceís "Crazy in Love". But Iíll have to disagree with her because I love it.
