Now I did a job. I got nothing but trouble since I did it, not to mention more than a few unkind words as regard to my character so let me make this abundantly clear. I do the job. And then I get paid.

Goodbye and Good Riddance 2011: Maybe the even years are better  

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. 2011? Room for improvement. Srsly.

Hi thread! I think I like the even years a lot better.

Now if your car ain't got it, go out and get it. We like the boom and don't you forget it. So turn down the treble and front your bass.

I love Oct for the lurkers thread and Dec for this one. Maybe we should have other seasonal threads.

Hello new thread. I woke up when ND came to bed at 3am and now can't fall back asleep. Argh. Alarm goes off in two hours. Also, still relying on phone since Internet and cable have still not yet been restored. It's getting old.

Just like this year! Look, I'm on topic.

Hi, new thread!

This... was actually a pretty great year, now I look back over it. It kind of feels like my first year of being something like a grown-up. I had my anxiety under control, I got stuff published, I got my flea market business set up and made real steps towards opening a vintage store. And, to top it all off, I met a boy. So thanks, 2011. You were one of the good ones.

Danger is my middle name, only I spell it R. u. t. h. - Tina Belcher.

I've been wondering when this would show up. I picked up a mysterious package at the Post Office today. I'm not ready to open it quite yet, but soon.

This year has sucked for so many people that I'll be happy to see it gone.

I love Oct for the lurkers thread and Dec for this one.

And also, what msbelle said.

It also had Luke [Macfarlane] being enthusiastic about dating Michael Urie while the latter would rather talk about how great his allegedly platonic roommate was instead of returning the interest. Godzilla movies have required less suspension of disbelief from me!

The latter part of the year has been a really rough one for me personally, but on the bright side both my parents have enjoyed better health and no hospital stays all year, so I'm chalking it up as a net win.

Every now and then, I think I might actually be a little odd.

Besides a long weekend in Portland that I enjoyed very much, nothing much happened this year. I think I need to change my life to something more interesting.

Oh, no, did I just say that? I didn't mean it! Calm boring life! That's what I want! No "interesting" shit!

Yikes, I hope I didn't just jinx myself.

Well not canonically, no, but this is transformative fiction.

Well, Zen threw herself on the interesting times grenade, so we should all be safer.

Thanks, Zen. Good taking one for the team.
