On the New Year
2005 rang in for me with little ado. I went out with a friend and her boyfriend, his brother, and another couple. I was suspicious of this arrangement at first, but it didn't turn out to be a set up. I got kissed around midnight by a short, drunken, self-styled "New Year's Eve Fairy" who thought I smelled good. I'm pretty sure he had to stand on tip toe to reach. So that's a story to file away. All in all it was a better NYE than most. Although, as some of you know, I maintain that New Year's is my least favorite holiday. Too much pressure to have this amazing, unforgettable night.

Sunday night into Monday was spent with my head in the toilet, without even the memories of a great evening of drunkeness to get me through. Watch out there's stomach bug going around.

As for the year ahead...

The first scary thing I thought about when the new year arrived is: this year marks 10 years since I graduated from high school. I'm waiting for the reunion invite so I can tear it into a million pieces and burn it. God, I hated high school. I wasn't an angst ridden teen or anything(although I did write my share of bad poetry) but I hated the way everything operated. Like the way you KNEW who was going to get picked for the lead or voted class president. So no, I don't think I shall be attending unless I become very rich, very skinny, or marry someone famous before then.

I don't make resolutions, but I have a few hopes for myself.

I hope that by the end of 2005, I'll have gotten rid of the credit card debt. (I'm pretty much on track for this).
I hope that by the end of 2005 some wonderful man will wander into my life and think I'm the greatest thing since sliced bread. And, perhaps this is too much to hope going from past experiences, he might already live in America and be single.
I hope that by the end of 2005 I'll be on the way to having the lifestyle to be a good dog owner.
I reserve the right to add to this list.

You have any?

    Not as such. I hope I'll get through this job and keep my sanity, but anything more than that is a bonus :p

    I think it's a prerequsite for all teenagers to write bad poetry. I wanted to be in a band when I was 15/16. I looked over the lyrics I'd written the other day and they were a bit wanky-wank to say the least.

    Andrew Collins (British journalist) has the last word on bad poetry in his book Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now when he hilariously looks over his university poetry. His website is worth visiting as well :-)

    I don't know if you've read any of my archived posts but I suffered some sort of post-traumatic stress due to the arrival of my 20-year high school reunion, which I did not attend. I spent - no, WASTED - a lot of time going over history and being depressed. It didn't help matters when a former classmate (who lives nearby) sent me a DVD presentation she'd created for the reunion. Ugh.

    As for new year's hopes - my greatest hope is that my family stays healthy and happy. Next, I'd like to finish a novel manuscript and begin submitting it. This is more a goal than a hope, since I have a lot of control over it. Then, after achieving that goal, I HOPE I'll get it published. Woo-hoo!
