My librarian friend, who quit the job this year. It’s a shame we’re not seeing ourselves on daily basis anymore.

38. Who was the best new person you met?
A friend of my librarian friend – he used to go visit her and use free internet at library, and even after her quitting it he kept going there. We use to talk a lot those times, he’d already phoned me at home and on my cell phone, and I think we’re becoming friends.

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2004:
Saving money is really necessary. If I can just know how to do that every fucking month... *sigh*

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
I see you baby (shakin’ that ass), by Groove Armada – thanks to another amazing vid made by talented lierdumoa to Queer as Folk, totally focused on Justin. On Justin ass, to be more specific. Anyway, it’s probably the song I heard most this year, my neighbors could testify that, and although my year wasn’t exactly as its lyrics it has such a good vibe that I’m always smiling after listening to it.
