Best of 2005

What can I say about 2005? I laughed, I cried, I tooks meds. I saw some great places in the world, met some fascinating people. Yadda yadda. I'm ready to get on with a new year, but not without a quick review of some of the highlights:

1. Had a snowball fight with my Krista in Times Square in the middle of a January snowstorm
2. Hiked one of most beautiful beaches on Earth in New Zealand
3. Got a mullet
4. High Tea at the Savoy
5. Climbed to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge
6. Swam a race in Auckland Harbour
7. Walking the streets of London at night.
8. Hijacking the jukebox at the Capitol Lounge.
9. Decided I'm going to be a nurse
10. Fueled by M&Ms and Red Bull, drove from Portland to Chicago on 5 hours of sleep, a full moon setting the snow of the Utah and Wyoming mountains aglow around me
11. Woke at dawn on my birthday and watched the sun come up over St. Paul’s Cathedral, walking along the Thames as the city of London slept.
12. After a night of clubbing, walked through the Royal Botanical Gardens in Melbourne as the sun came up
13. Stayed awake for 64 straight, incredible hours during Sydney Mardi Gras
14. Got stripped buck-naked by the waves body surfing on Bondi Beach
15. Got a(nother) tattoo
16. Hitchhiked in NZ. More than once, too

Although not likely, I hope 2006 gives me even a fraction of the highs that 2005 gave me. Now let's get a drink.
