Well, other bands know more than three chords. Your professional bands can play up to six, sometimes seven, completely different chords.

One time, I want to know what a great one feels like, though. Although, for a lot of reasons, it's okay it's not this one.

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.

We are Buffistas. This isn't our first apocalypse. -- Pix

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
