New Things I've Done/Experienced In 2005

1. Signed with my wonderful agent, Nephele.

2. Sold Slave to Sensation and a second paranormal book to Berkley, at auction!

3. Learnt to handmake udon noodles. (Incidentally I didn't learn why anyone would want to do this).

4. Began reading weblogs, then writing my own.

5. Visited fake Easter Island Moai in Japan (I'm not kidding - see Exhibit A.)

6. Gave my very first workshop at a conference.

7. Ate my first ever serving of macaroni and cheese.

8. Realized that no matter how long I live in Japan, I'll never ever 'get' most things on Japanese television.

9. Read Arthur Golden's Memoirs of A Geisha.

10. Became a wait, I'm still working on this one.

Now, it's your turn. Tell me some new things you've done/experienced this past year.

I'm sorry, I just can't beleive that you've never eaten macaroni and cheese before this year.

I swear it's the complete truth. Weird I know.

I'm with Emma. I can't believe you'd never had mac and cheese. In the US, that's what college students live on.

Anyway my new experience for 2005 was becoming a mother-in-law and then finding out 6 weeks later that I was going to become a grandmother.

This is the year I fell madly in love with Sean Bean after seeing him in Flightplan.

I was one of the winners of the NaNo Writing Contest.

Started a blog.

Ate sushi for the first time...and loved it!

Marilyn, those two are definite biggies! You must be so excited. :)

Josie - I may have mentioned Sean Bean a time or three on this blog *g* (I love the pic on your profile) Congrats on the nano as well!
