I just know that the minute I post this, I’ll get my email with today’s prompt.

December 20 – Beyond Avoidance. What should you have done this year but didn’t because you were too scared, worried, unsure, busy or otherwise deterred from doing? (Bonus: Will you do it?)

Gotten my bikini line waxed.

If I keep up this swimming habit, I’m going to have to do something about it in the new year.

December 21 – Future Self. Imagine yourself five years from now. What advice would you give your current self for the year ahead? (Bonus: Write a note to yourself 10 years ago. What would you tell your younger self?)

Note to 37 year old self: stop laughing at poo jokes.

Note to 22 year old self: stop laughing at poo jokes. and watch that new boy at work, you might just marry him one day.

December 22 – Travel. How did you travel in 2010? How and/or where would you like to travel next year?

This year we went to Gilgandra, Lithgow, Brisbane and New  Caledonia  – our first international trip together.

I dunno about travelling next year, we don’t travel too often (plus, we’re supposed to be saving for a house)

December 23 – New Name. Let’s meet again, for the first time. If you could introduce yourself to strangers by another name for just one day, what would it be and why?

RAH! It’s a name that’s stuck since my days at ACP, though the use of rah started with Danni Bragg back in high school. Then it was ramped up courtesy of my RENTHead girls in ’99, though we all called each other rah. The gang at ACP were the ones that got it to stick as an actual name for me.

Dan calls me rah, heaps of friends call me rah and even my nephews call me Aunty Rah.

If it was easy for me to change my name legally to Rah, I would.

It’s often mis-spelled as Ra, which I quite like since it looks like it’s the nickname of Laura.

I always hated my name when I was growing up and I wanted to be Stacey (after Stacey from the Babysitters Club, of course).
