Can't say I did anything as amazing as kicking cancer's ass, but I had a pretty good year.

1. Decided to respond honestly (concerns and all) to an email on match.com, and it turned out to be the best move I've ever made in the relationship world.
2. Walked into a piano store "just to try some nice pianos" and ended up buying my first piano of my own 3 days later.

2009 was a pretty amazing year for me
I travelled around Europe for two months with my boyfriend, who then asked me to marry him in a square in Prague
I then came home and had a great year with work and friends and family
I took the plunge to move overseas for a year to London to teach and have been in London since October after a month long vaction in the states
And now i'm ending the year with my fiance (so funny to call him that) in the south black forest, in Germany in a chalet, covered in snow.

Hope 2010 is just as fun!

Way to go beegee for beating cancer!! Awesome

--Meeting U2 at the Metro in March, and getting all 4 to sign my Elevation tourbook and 3 of the 4 (Larry got away!) to sign our U2 wedding cake pic






--celebrating our first year of being married, with a trip to San Fran in June
--making numerous trips to see family in NY, VA and NC. I miss my parents and sisters a lot, so this was a great thing to be able to do this year.
--U2 in Chicago (2nd show) and in Raleigh
--being poor for the next 30 years = buying our first house, in September!

started my own business ... no regrets yet. Hope it remains that way.

Other than that, travelling to Ireland was pretty special

U2 came to Norman and played their hearts out. I had the usual suspects with me plus a few more close friends who had never seen them before and wondered what all of the hoopla was all about.

Also bought some pretty cool new toys this year...

Painted the outside of my house this year. That was a bitch! Not doing that again anytime soon, took an entire week...i still need to do some more touchup when the weather gets nice again.

Most importantly though, spent some quality time with loved ones, family, and friends. Nothing is guaranteed so thats probably the best thing i did all year.

i almost forgot, Depeche Mode in Dallas was very special too. Never seen them before and they were amazing.

Im sure there is more but that is all for now...

Just curious--how did the folks who had never seen them before react to the show?

Oh they liked the show alright. They probably didnt know much of the *new* material but enjoyed it just the same, and the **hits** were all well received. Also my sister got to go and bring her kids, who enjoyed it.

If someone went to that show and didn't like it, i would be checking for a pulse. Even casual fans or people who weren't really into the band would have to admit the show was awesome.

I totally remember that and then I immediately yelled EDGE and he turned around and waved. Then I turned around and Larry was like right there.
