If you’re enjoying some much-deserved downtime right about now, may I intrude upon your peace and quiet with a laborious blog questionnaire? Hey, I figure if I have to suffer through it (thanks to my ill-advised adoption of this thing as a yearly ritual: behold, my thrilling end-of-year thoughts on 2004, 2005, and 2006), you should too. I mean, only if you want to. (DO IT, DO IT NOW.)

I’ll post my answers in the next few days, and if you give me the link to your own responses (via the comments or by email) I’ll link to your entry as well. Here are the questions:

1. What did you do in 2007 that you’d never done before?

2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
