18.) What's the one thing you thought you would never do but did in 2006.

None of it! *laughs*

24.) How would you rate this year with a scale from 1 (worst) to 10 (best)?
Well, as far as fun and happiness goes, averaged out, I'd say a 4. As far as positive things gained, well, I'll reserve final judgement for a bit, but for now, I'd say 9.3, at least.
