Seriously, I don't know. I don't get sick... I'm Clark ;)

32. Your favorite blog?
My gorgeous f-list :)
And this is going to sound really stupid but... I keep complaining about last year, constantly. And, yes, it sucked, had more serious lowpoints than the ones before. But it also gave me the great gift of living my dream. So I'm trying to be optimistic, even if right now things look a bit bleak - it can only get better from here, right?
Yep, I'm determined to rock 2009 :)
Happy New Year to everybody out there!
