- Didn't really meet any new people this year.

14. What was your favorite month of 2006?

- Haven't seen enough TV this year to have a favorite program.

36. What song will always remind you of 2006?

- Forstchen & Gingrich's alt-history trilogy, Gettysburg, Grant Comes East, and Never Call Retreat, which really should have been published in one fat tome.

- Snakes on a Plane. It was the only movie I saw this year.

42. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?

46. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2006?
- "My Festive Color Is Black - Why Do You Ask?"

47. What kept you sane?
- Good question. I'll get back to you on that.
