I watch movies even less but the only movie I can remember is The Hobbit so I'll go with that.

5. Song:
The Storm Before the Calm, by Anathema.

The London trip at the beginning of December. But I'll have to mention another one as well, and that's meeting Danny after the Anathema gig in September, because asdf Danny.

7. Concert:
Again a tie between MDB and Anathema.

1. Party:
I don't go to that many parties, and I quite enjoyed all of them.

I don't listen to bad music.

Nothing really bad happened exactly, but there were a bunch of shitty days as always.

Can't say I enjoyed Sturm und Drang, who were supporting Sonata Arctica.

Does it have to be released this year or just read this year? If latter, The Legend of Nightfall by I-forget-who.

November.

None that stands out over the rest of the bad days.

Tampere.

Don't remember.

What was your new year wish?
To get things done.

How many boyfriends?
None.

Broke up?
Nope.

Have any crushes?:
Nope - squishes, however...

Care to mention names?
J. Vesa. And Titanic-sized celebrity squishes on the usual suspects.

New friends?
I... think I technically "met" Teri in 2011, but I think we started talking more after I'd watched Sherlock, so it would have been this year. Strictly this year though, none that I can think of.

Had to say goodbye?
None that I can think of.

Missed anyone?
Many people.

Win anything?
Not that I can think of.

Best place you went to?
London.

Worst place you went to?
That shitty bar Panu dragged us to after a Greenrose Faire gig.

Happiest moment?
Wait, didn't we cover this already? *scrolls up* Oh, it was "best experience"... Well then, either meeting Teri, meeting Danny, or one of the epic hugs by J.

How was your birthday?
Pretty much went by unnoticed by most. I think Anna made a cheese cake, which is always awesome. And Teri posted a MDB song for me on Tumblr.
