We were watching Eat,Pray,Love on New Years day (great book, movie not-so-much) and in the movie Liz and her friends are around a table discussing what is the best single word that describes themselves. I remember reading this scene in the book and being driven to sheer panic because I couldn't find THAT one word. I think over the years I realized I'm not just one word, and it's OK. Unfortunately, I'm not so sure what my word(s) is/are. I guess it depends on the day. Indecisive, driven, ballsy, shy, ditsy, genius, arrogant, bossy, generous, lonely, sunshine. I realize I'm a walking contradiction. Hmm, maybe that should be my word. I guess for right now I'll go back to being untitled.

Christmas and New Years went really well. It was great spending time with the family and friends especially my friend C. who ended up having her baby on New Years day (Not the first baby of the New Year, so no free baby gear).

New years resolution:
Don't try to lose weight (Although I definitely need too);
stop playing on the internet while at work (failing miserably at it today);
pay off my car;
and finally get knocked up!

Here's to a Great New Year :)

I agree with you, the book was waaay better than the movie. I also have no idea what my word would be. A dreamer? hopeful? oblivious? Who knows. I guess "Fill In The Blank" works depending on my mood & the situation.

Agreeing with you both - loved the book, though the movie was pretty. :)

I remember reading that scene and thinking - I have no idea, but I'd really like for that word to be "Mom."

I adore your New Year's resolutions!

I hope all your resolutions come true this year!

I haven't read the book or watched the movie yet but I want to know why we have to narrow ourselves to just one word?

Happy New Year :)
