X Of The Year

I should’ve posted this list yesterday before the new year came but I was just too lazy. Still it’s better late than never so here we go:

MAN OF THE YEAR:
Troy. He helped me get through the year, and God knows what a tough year 2002 was for me. I wouldn’t have made it this far without him. Thanks, Troy! :)

WOMAN OF THE YEAR:
Rebecca. She kept my tiny little design business going and my bills paid on time, and still considered me as a friend despite all the hassles and annoyances. Plus, she’d marry me. Too bad we’re not gay.

MOVIE OF THE YEAR:
Donnie Darko. I absolutely love it. The movie is impossible to get a hold of in Indonesia (as is the case with any independent movie) but I got a copy courtesy Troy.

SONG OF THE YEAR:
A tie between Blink 182’s “Stay Together For The Kids”, New Found Glory’s “My Friends Over You”, and Gary Jules’ “Mad World”. The third song is from the movie “Donnie Darko”. It’s a cover of a Tears for Fears song from the 80s and the only one of those three that has great lyrics. I liked the first two simply because the lyrics hit close to home.

FONT OF THE YEAR:
A tie between Gadget and Modern No. 20. When in doubt about which font to use for a title image/logo design, a pick between those two would never go wrong.

COLOUR OF THE YEAR:
Grey. Grey was the new orange.

ADVICE OF THE YEAR:
“Look — don’t ruin the fantasy. We know the reality… It’s all bleak and yuck and blah!” Courtesy Rebecca.

HIGHLIGHT OF THE YEAR:
I made my dream of working from home doing web design come true. Go me! A not so close second would be winning another Bloggy despite my endless complaints about it being nothing but a popularity contest.

Speaking of Bloggies, you can nominate my weblog again this year if you like. Nikolai has started accepting nominations for the 2003 Bloggies. I’ll try to bitch less about it this year :)

Well, here’s hoping that the next X of The Year list will be a lot more interesting than this.
