Here's the semi-standardized questionnaire applied to 2012 — it was a pretty intense year in some ways.

What did you do in 2012 that you'd never done before?
Filed a police report, juggled two kids out solo.

Did I miss any useful questions? I dropped a couple of irrelevant ones, and will be watching the memesphere for stuff to add.

There were a few once-a-decade snapshots of living situations out there in blogland lately. In Canada, we have a census twice as often. Here are a few details of what my living situation was around each Census time that I've been alive (including a projection for this year — early May is coming fast!)

1981:
Living in an upstairs flat with my parents in Notre Dame de Grâce, a neighbourhood west of downtown Montreal that almost every English speaker just shortens to NDG (and NDG had a lot of English speakers at the time). Chewing on doors and, at least at census time, the only kid in the house.

Counting myself in… )

2006:1This is it, last YIR entry for at least ten months. 2I am officially adding David Emerson to my Peter Mackay club. 3It turns out, Bell, when I cancelled my account, charged me $2.68 for "tolerance". 4He likes mini eggs, and likes to think about stuff while not being stared at. 5Been a bit spacey lately, as the summer gets going. 6The first half of last week involved getting ready for a big night of sponsors, partners and company visiting the lab, then actually doing the night. 7I'm at my freshly almost-organized desk in Verdun8I have arrived, luggage and all, in London. 9I'm listening to FRNK and posting by instant message. 10Apparently somebody thinks that 90% is the new 50%, at least when it comes to pillaging. 11Student politics continues, but is on "simmer" for a bit. 12I knew already that this was going to be an insane week, but it got insaner earlier today.

Goddamn right... bye-bye 2004! )

And, for the curious time-traveller, here's last year. I didn't look until after I'd done this year, some things are eerily similar, some things are not...

Shamelessly stolen from [livejournal.com profile] cuz_mary_jane, who stole it from Pat (who probably got it from someone else, because nobody actually writes these things -- they are only copies)... memetics in action!
