I got this from Pascal. One of the many personal Q&A you can find all over the internet, though this one actually looks like a nice idea.
Q: What did you do in 2008 that you'd never done before?
A: I left the continent for a holiday in the USA, I've been driving cars (and getting my license), I left the country on my own to go to FOSDEM, had an actual (holiday) job for two weeks, and attended a punk concert.
Q: Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for the next year?
A: I don't remember any new year's resolutions.
Q: Did anyone close to you give birth?
Q: Did anyone close to you die?
A: My granny died in 2008, less than a year after her husband.
Q: What countries/states did you visit?
A: In Germany, I travelled in Bavaria, to Rheinland-Pfalz and to NRW. I visited Belgium (Brussels), France (Paris), Austria (Tirol), England (Yorkshire), the USA (NY, PA, DC, MD, VA, MA, and maybe one or two other states)
