Goodbye 2006

Well, it’s been a year.

As I promised myself, I’m at home tonight, reading, playing online, basically cocooning myself from the world.

2006 was admittedly more bad than good for me. I lost a lot. But it’s nothing compared to what others have lost. And it’s nothing that hasn’t been gone through before. So I persevere.

Tonight, I’m toasting the end of 2006 with a wine that’s darn fitting for this year:

Royal Bitch 2006

JV Wines Royal Bitch.

My resolutions for 2007?

  • To be open to any changes that come along
  • To break out of my shell a bit
  • To read more
  • To pay more attention to my online endeavors

Happy happy healthy 2007 to you and yours. Thank you for reading me, and I’ll see you next year!

edited to add: If I ever end up like Dick Clark, I’m giving you this advance directive to euthanize me. edited again Don’t euthanize me. Just don’t put me on television.

A long December

A long December and there’s reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can’t remember the last thing that you said as you were leaving
Now the days go by so fast
And it’s one more day up in the canyons
And it’s one more night in Hollywood
If you think that I could be forgiven…I wish you would
The smell of hospitals in winter
And the feeling that it’s all a lot of oysters, but no pearls
All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attaches to a girl
And it’s one more day up in the canyons
And it’s one more night in Hollywood
If you think you might come to California…I think you should
Drove up to hillside manor sometime after two a.m.
And talked a little while about the year
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower,
Makes you talk a little lower about the things you could not show her
And it’s been a long December and there’s reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can’t remember all the times I tried to tell my myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass
And it’s one more day up in the canyon
And it’s one more night in Hollywood
it’s been so long since Ive seen the ocean…I guess I should

Counting Crows

Wanna bowl with the gangstas

I hope everyone had a great Chrismukkah. Among many other fabu things (will do a brag post later), I received a video iPod! Since Sirensong died 2 weeks ago, I was ecstatic. I christened this iPod “Calliope.

Because it just seemed right, the first video I downloaded was Weird Al’s “White and Nerdy.” I’m ashamed to say I am quite familiar with the song’s contents.

From my cell phone!

I’m currently nursing a cold. A statician could come up with a very good correlation between the times I visit with my extended family and the times I end up diseased in some way, shape or form. (Sunday night:Christmas Eve::Tuesday night:congestion) I swear, I’m taking Airborne before the next family event. Anyway I started taking Cold-eeze on Wednesday and believe it or not, I’m feel as if the cold’s almost done. The Cold-eeze isn’t bad either – tastes like cheap stale old person candy.

As for New Year’s Eve, I’m sending 2006 on its merry way by staying home. This weekend will be filled with junk food, World of Warcraft, and a mite of alcohol.
