Mal: So we run. Nandi: I understand, Captain Reynolds. You have your people to think of, same as me. And this ain't your fight. Mal: Don't believe you do understand, Nandi. I said 'we run'. We.

Goodbye and Good Riddance 2016: We know the world didn't end, because, check it out!  

Every year we watch the Charlie Brown special, do the Snoopy dance, wish everybody a Merry Thanksgivukkahmas, and thank our Secret Santas in the good riddance thread. Which is this one, in case you were wondering.

Go away, 2016.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

I was hoping that's what that was.

The real axe murderers were the friends we made along the way

This is a most welcome thread. Happy Pie for Breakfast Day, all who celebrate!

The status is NOT quo.

That was amazing. Thank you, John Oliver.

I had pie for breakfast!

Me too! And then a turkey sandwich.

The status is NOT quo.

I made pancakes with homemade apple compote leftover from apple pie baking. YUM.

I have half a cherry pie and three quarters of a key lime pie at home. That's my weekend's food.

I'm probably the only person who will say this, but I'm mixed about 2016. There is an undeniable amount of bad, but for me there was also a lot of good, most of it revolving around my little business, which is on track to be not so little if things keep going the way they are going.

It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

No, ND, I agree. There's been real good in 2016 for me, too. Work has been good, we have a new great-nephew, one of the nieces just got engaged, my improv class has been the best thing I've done in a long time, my brother has been sober for 9 months even though he relapsed super hard first, and one of the greatest joys of my life was officiating at our besties' wedding this summer. And I'm super grateful for those bright spots amid the rest of this shithole of a year.

"You'd think a house full of crazy people would be fun. It's actually really depressing." --Bart Simpson

It's hard for me to paint any year as good or bad, and I really try hard to not let myself do it. It is easy for me to find bad all the time, and if I let myself do it, then I just end up painting every year that way, and for me, it's not fair to the part of my brain that needs to see all the good things that happened along the they.

All this said with the caveat that it is what works in my head, and YourBrainMayVary.
