Drinks and Make-Up at the Space Needle

Another "40 new things" item completed (item #15)!
I had drinks (AND dinner and dessert!) with Mutti on top of the Space Needle on Christmas Eve. We had a wonderful time together!

This special evening inspired another event that really would deserve a place on my "40 new things" list. I wore make-up (eye-shadow, mascara, and lipstick) for the first time in probably 20 years!

List items #13 and #14: Music

I completed item #13 on my 40-new-things list a couple of weeks ago. This may have been the hardest one for me on the list - Karaoke singing! But thanks to my wonderful and supportive friends, I DID IT! :) It took a lot of liquor, but I did step behind that microphone and sang "I want you to want me" by Cheap Trick.

It was so much fun! And thanks to my awesome friends Ken, Matt, Gilbert, Jennifer, and Dylan who came out and rocked with me! That was the best part!

And now I completed item #14: Create a CD with my 40 favorite songs of 2010. Well, it's been a great music year for me. I got to see Foals at Neumos, Motopony at the High Dive, and The Black Angels at the Showbox! And I have been listening to KEXP a lot, findings loads of great new music! I wasn't able to limit it to 40 favorite songs. Here is my 2010 playlist:
