The 2006 That Was

Happy New Year!

I'm borrowing the idea of a year-in-review post with photos from a certain Ambitious Hamster. I hope she doesn't mind.

January

Eric and Jodi <span onclick=

Having missed our annual Thanksgiving at Disneyland in 2005, Eric and I spent the first day of 2006 at the Happiest Place on Earth. We also made a trip to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The ASIMO demo was fantastic. I won a plush one!


#36More Snow

The end of the month meant a long drive to Park City, Utah for our second year attending the Sundance Film Festival. Once again, we had a really good time even though I unfortunately lost my Jack Skellington hat there.


February

Dr. Peepers

I volunteered at a Darwin Day celebration. So did Dr. Peepers (above).


Ami Peeking Out My New Camera

On Valentine's Day my hamster, Ami, came to live with me. We thought he was a girl. For our 11th anniversary, E gave me my Sony H1 camera.


March

Jamie <span onclick=Katee <span onclick=

Hamster Haiku Tired Girl Collective

I self-published a book, Hamster Haiku, that I sold with the Tired Girl Collective at the San Diego Comic Con.


Darth Vera

My photo of Darth Vera from Comic Con was linked on Boing Boing.
(The funny thing is that I just recently found out the person in the costume is an acquaintance of mine!)


August

We went to a screening of Everyone Stares: The Police Inside Out, with a Q&A with Stewart Copeland.

Hollywood Bowl Fireworks Finale

We said goodbye to John Mauceri at the Hollywood Bowl's Fireworks Finale.

The month started off with my birthday and dinner at Roscoe's.

We made a trip, with the dogs, to Big Bear Lake.

I met Hello Kitty.


Magical Christmas Caroling TruckSnowy Santa

I enjoyed the holidays with the Magical Christmas Caroling Truck, Eric, and good friends!

There was obviously more to 2006 than I documented here, but these are some of the things I photographed. If you are already here, you know where to find more info. You can also check out my photos on flickr and my photoblog, if you wish. Happy 2007!

Darth Vera always makes me laugh :)

Oooh! I just had an idea for one!

Oh great, so meeting me and the Kid and winning our cookie exchange - didn't even crack the list. Meanwhile, hamsters abound. Screw you and your 2006 list, sucka.

Just kidding. I *heart* you.

Jodi said...

I know, Jenn, I suck. I should have at least including meeting your Mom. My bad.

Great photos! I'm so glad you really take advantage of living in LA. Makes me realize how boring it is around here...

Let's meet up for coffee soon to discuss our adventures.

My 4-yr-old thanks you immensely for the video you posted earlier of the Magical Christmas Caroling Truck! (OK, and I watched it a few times, too.)
