I wanna die in bed surrounded by fat grandchildren, but guess that's off the menu.

Goodbye and Good Riddance 2006: You're ON THE LIST!!!  

Every year we watch the Charlie Brown special, do the Snoopy dance, wish everybody a Merry Christmukkah, and thank our Secret Santas in the good riddance thread. Which is this one, in case you were wondering. Oh, and 2006? Don't think we've forgotten about you.

You always do this. We get tipsy, and you take advantage of my love of the scientific method.

Acknowledge your Seekrit Santas, and put 2006 on The List here...

This thread looks lonely, so I'ma nattter a bit with a cute story I just heard on the news.

Apparently this woman who is from somewhere north but living in some small town in Georgia was really missing snow over the holidays. So her husband built a snow machine and blanketed the entire house and the yard with snow overnight. Sweet.

See, if he could that, why couldn't Studio 60 do it? Studio 60, you're on the list!

Art Crawl!!!

Wow, and they were in Georgia -- not even a place that has a big movie and tv industry with like, special effects.

Until a couple of years ago, there was apparently a ski resort in Georgia, [link] Maybe he obtained the equipment from them.

I've got approximately 40% of my Xmas shopping done. Yay?

Anyway, shiny new thread.

I believe vampires are the world's greatest golfers

Man, I've been waiting for this thread forever!

Though, now that it's here, I have to acknowledge that most of 2006 wasn't bad: tolerable, even. November made up for it in a big way.

Ann, that's a ferret.

2006 has been a roller coaster. Oddly, I'm not sure I even remember much that happened between mid-January and early summer.

Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

I was not looking forward to this year for many reasons, but it has turned out to be wonderful.

  • We finally started to make enough money between us to start paying off our debts in a major way.
  • I lost 28 pounds and got in shape.
  • Rediscovered rollerskating and am totally diogging it.
  • Got married to the best guy in the world by eloping, which rocked.
  • Turned 50 and did not freak out.
  • Stopped eating so much crap food and felt much the better for it.
  • Went on two awesome vacations.
  • Everyone I love made it through the year, in spite of cancer, depression, drug addiction, and other demons besetting many of them.

For the next year: I hope to revive my writing, which has been on a back burner for almost two years and keep exercising.
