When I wrote last, what I really should have said was: "I'm not even going to pretend that I'm going to post again before the end of the year."

Which is what it turned into.

BUT, here we are again. Tra la la. Happy New Year.

YEAR IN REVIEW: 2011

Go to your Calendar and find the first (public) entry for each month of 2010. Post the first line of it in your journal, and that's your "Year In Review."

January: Well, once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more!
February: I am in a particularly foul mood as of late, for a number of reasons that I don't want to get into in a public entry, especially since — as always — I am keenly aware of the fact that this is the first entry for the month, and thus subject to the "End of Year First Lines Meme."
March: April may be the cruelest month, but February was kind of a bitch.
April: Between being sick and a host of other crap, I've once again fallen out of the habit of posting.
May: I've been hiding under a rock, which means I have abandoned LJ once again.
June: As I may have mentioned previously, every morning at 6:00 a.m., I am awakened by what I call "The Alarm Claw."
July: The new Old 97's record is out today and I can't wait to have it playing on an endless loop for the rest of the summer.
August: A week or so ago, a friend started a topic on Twitter: What if George R. R. Martin wrote YA / Children's books?
September: Well, so much for keeping up with LJ.
October: Here it is, suddenly a month or more later.
November: Happy World Vegan Day, everybody!
December: Earlier in the week, I overheard someone on the bus say, "Bye, TTYL!"

I'm so meta about this meme. I may have to stop doing it, because I'm always thinking about it at the beginning of each month or whenever I get around to posting that month. :)
aceofkittens: (yay)
Well, once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more! :) Happy New Year! Hopefully 2011 will treat us all kindly.

Ho hum

I feel like the first update for 2010 ought to be something auspicious, but there's nothing really earth-shattering going on. NYE was a mix of good and frustrating and reminded me of why I like to have my own party: so I can totally walk home from there. ;) Not having that luxury this year made me a bit cranky.

My mom and I are going to New York later this week and I managed to get a nasty cold just in time for said trip. It's going to be in the 20s and 30s and I will probably perish, for I am a delicate flower. We will see numerous CousinsOfKittens and hopefully live to tell the tale. I'm also hoping to visit Babycakes Bakery.

One of these days, I will really write up something interesting, like why I loved Dickens Fair so much this year and what I'm doing as my volunteer work side project. But it shall not be this day.

Here is that year-end meme:

YEAR IN REVIEW
Go to your Calendar and find the first entry for each month of 2008. Post the first line of it in your journal, and that's your "Year In Review."

January: Thanks to an amazing White Elephant gift exchange, I am now the proud owner of what must surely be a replica of the Holy Stone of Clonrichert!
February: The other week, we discovered a red-brown worm in our bathtub.
March: XKCD for the win!
April: [livejournal.com profile] invisiblebf and I are in Arizona this weekend for a wedding.
May: There are many thoughts brewing in my head, but, they keep whirling around and around, like a kid inside a revolving door.
June: I realize that the people have voted for me to go to NYC, but I'm not going.
July: Back from the whirlwind tour of Missouri.
August: Last night, I was in Mandalay again...
September: I continue to go through my days in somewhat of a fugue.
October: Russell Fucking Crowe, on stage with Great Big Sea at the House of Blues tonight.
November: I'm not a very political person, but when the networks called the presidential race, I actually burst into tears.
December: Today was hard enough without the work-splosion.

This was pretty easy, considering I only posted about three times a month for most of the year. As a result, I have decided not to renew my paid account, which expired today. It's not that I can't afford the $25, it's that I don't see the "ROI" (return on investment) right now. Maybe if I start posting more than once in a blue moon, I'll miss my precious user-pics.

Happy New Year, everybody! Let's hope 2009 is better than 2008, which was verily a year full of suck.
aceofkittens: (yay)
Thanks to an amazing White Elephant gift exchange, I am now the proud owner of what must surely be a replica of the Holy Stone of Clonrichert! Behold its glory:



A great start to the new year! :)
aceofkittens: (woohoo!)
Happy New Year!

See you next year! :)

Here's one photo from NYE. Sadly, I failed in my quest to become blindingly drunk. In fact, I remained stone cold sober throughout the evening.

Nevertheless, I still look drunk )

Yeah. And cranky.
aceofkittens: (woohoo!)
I can't remember the last time I was this grouchy. I hope to obliterate all rational thought processes during the course of the night.* Wish me luck, gentle readers!

And have a great New Year while you're at it. :)

* I'll take pictures tonight if I remember.

Hrm

Sadly, I am not inspired to post about anything. There's not a lot of internet access here right now and I'm spending my time huddled under blankets (business as usual). I've been hanging out with some cool cats and drinking my liver into a stupor (business as usual). Making plans is difficult and complicated (business as usual).

In an exciting twist, I've broken out something fierce (yay, facial blemishes!) and haven't bought most of my NYE gifts either. You may just be getting a big smile from me as your gift this holiday season.

Well, I wish I had some kind of intriguing "year's end" thought process, but I don't. I plan to make the same resolution as always: to floss.
aceofkittens: (Default)
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


Pretty much sums up my M.O. right there.

****
I always make the same New Year's resolution every year: to floss. Obviously, the fact that I have to make it every year means I am unsuccessful about holding to it.

That sums up a lot of the rest of my M.O.

But it's really going to be different this time!

No, really. I believe that.

Happy 2003, everybody! :) See you next year.

For some unknown reason, I decided to forego the Comtrex and drank a huge diet Coke, so I can't get to sleep and am drowning in my own snot. However, I do feel better than I did last night, so by next year, I should be just peachy.

It being the middle of the night, it's time for some old-fashioned contemplative rambling.

I have a friend who doesn't like to give/receive presents to/from friends. They just never got into that with his friends, apparently. On Zargon XV where he's from. (I know you're reading, alien freak, and you're still getting one, though you don't deserve it!) On the one hand, this seems odd to me, as we always gave gifts in my group of friends. On the other hand, it saves money and helps avoid those awkward moments when your casual acquaintance gives you a hardback novel by an author you don't like and you sneak down to the bookstore to trade it in for cheap booze and cigarettes.

I haven't done any shopping for presents. My mom's been hounding me about "what I want" for New Years (which is when we exchange gifts, and this is why), and I always say, "Nothing." When your realize (after following the link) that Russians call our Santa "Dead Morose," it won't be so shocking. Will it.

The thing is, though, "Nothing" is what I always say. I feel like I don't really want anything. Ever. All of my desires/wants/needs have been a flatline for so long. I don't want anything. I don't know really what I want. I don't know how to ask for it. I'm so terrified of being rejected about whatever it is, I'll make my request into a joke to cushion that blow of possible rejection. Then, no one takes it seriously.

I have to stop that shiznit. So, here's my list of things (I think) I really want, as of 3:30 a.m. on 12/27/02. )

I feel sleepy! Can it be time for an installment of "The whales have giant teeth?"
