    The best movies I saw this year were IMAX Beauty and the Beast, AOTC, Moulin Rouge, Spirit and Chamber of Secrets.

    Come to think of it, I didn't go to the movies that much this year either. It's got so expensive now, I'm usually restricted to the cheapo nights.

    Personal highlight of the year would be turning 21 :D

    Don't have top 10 of anything.. as I've had a hellish last 18 months...

    But the best thing that's happened this year is:
    I was approved for a chem number (ie I don't have to pay) for Arava, which has a $22, 000 per annum price tag just so I can actually do things like.. oh type and walk.

    Other than that.. well partly because of that I got to make a costume in three days as opposed to several months due to my Rheumatoid Arthritis.

    Sorry to hear you've had a bad last 18 months or so. Surely the next can only get better. :)


    (ROTK fits into the next 18)

    Well this is true:)

    And in RotK we see Eowyn kick some butt, so that's something to look forward to;)

    I finally managed to skim read the very last book, that 100 or so pages before the appendix.

    Oh, and I may be working on the cossies for next year's Santa parade:) Now *that* will look good on my cv;)
