Well, we may not have parted on the best of terms. I realize certain words were exchanged. Also, certain... bullets. But that's air through the engine. It's past. We're business people.

Goodbye and Good Riddance 2023 Skiddoo

Take stock, reflect, butch, moan, vent. We are all here for it.

Strangely enough, keeping count was one of the hardest things, so maybe I was actually slightly short. But I am giving it to myself anyway because there are that few times that I set a goal and kept it, as a grown person.(Kind of wishing the feelings that powered my pen/keyboard weren't quite so heavy, but maybe it helped me manage. Still, it wouldn't hurt to have a few thoughts on joy next year.)

We won’t stop until everyone is gay.

erika, that is super impressive.

I'm not even sure I have the words for this year.

Right there with you. And I’m not exactly looking forward to the holidays for a number of reasons.

Thanks. Was prepared to have it be a worthy goal that I didn't quite reach, so it was good, either way.

This year wasn't so bad except that work is A LOT, and my dog died on Saturday night.

So from my current perspective, it kinda sucks.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

Oh no, Consuela, I'm so sorry.

Oh, I'm so sorry, Consuela.

I am a woman of various inclinations and only some of the time are they to burn everything down in frustration

I'm so sorry, Consuela

Jetta was a very good girl.

I realized with horror that a major theme of 2023 for me was “I wish I had the confidence of a [specific] mediocre white man.” Sigh.

All sorrows can be borne if you put them into a story. Tell me a story.

Oh, Consuela. I'm so sorry
