Being able to do this meme at all is a good sign; in recent years I've just been too tired.

1.What did you do in 2014 that you'd never done before?
Sonisphere: Boom! Also joined a political party. But that isn't quite so much Boom as Ffffffft. Had a brain scan!

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Can't recall, so probably not. But I have a couple I am going to keep this year.

3.Did anyone close to you give birth?
Yes, Larians' brother and wife brought little Oscar Dylan into the world. He has a very droll face.

Germany

I really want to hear the story of 14th October in a girly gossipy way at some point. Perhaps we can find a way for there to be cocktails. Preferably champagne cocktails. :)
