Hmm, this year hasn't been characterized by memorable events as such, it's been a gradual transition from the weird unintended gap year I found myself with, to starting the new job and settling in a new country and meeting lots of cool people. Anyway, to continue:
48 books total this year, which is pretty good going considering that I was rationing my reading severely for about 2 months.
It's been a great year for discovering new music, mainly thanks to blue_mai and emusic. Hard to pick just five songs!
You are absolutely welcome to revive old discussions on these posts, by the way.

I had a very enjoyable NYE, with a some friends of RS's who live right in the grand part of Stockholm and just round the corner from the perfect firework watching spot. It was a highly civilized party, with excellent food and excellent conversation. And the fireworks were great; lots and lots of separate parties who all let off their fireworks simultaneously at midnight, which is a lot more fun than one big firework show.
