happy new year!
i think i'm giving up on the other blog. i'm so over it i'm not even going to bother turning that into a link. currently working on my tenth year on xanga and no matter how many other blogs i start (so many) i keep coming back here, even if infrequently. capital letters are overrated. and writing is so much work. here it's all natural, effortless, stream of consciousness. i barely edit. and i can ramble. it doesn't even matter if anyone reads it. it's not really for anyone else anyway, and that, i think, has been the key to my longevity here.
so the holidays. those were fun. happy days. speaking of which, i saw "mrs. c" in some terrible play that my parents took me to at a place that attracts old has been actors to perform in a dinner-theater environment (buffet, of course) for people who think such things make them cultured. i may have had a better opinion of it had the writing not been as bland as the steamed broccoli. i think i saw another gay person there, though. i couldn't be sure. but yes, i went home, which was immediately a marked improvement over last year's christmas spent alone. i was glad to be there (home, i mean). i didn't get to see nearly as many people as i'd hoped, but the family time was nice. it felt short, but it was designed to be, and i was feeling slightly homesick for my couch and kitten. speaking of couch... well, i'll get to that in a bit.
new year's was kind of awesome. it had been a while since i'd attended a proper new year's party, but fortunately my kinda boyfriend is good at throwing such things. it was also the first time i ever had a real kiss on nye, which is a little sad, but i suppose it was also nice to have one of those too-rare "first time experiences". anyway, i got properly sloshed and went to bed somewhere around 6am. and i'm really hoping those videos don't turn up on facebook or youtube.
i still haven't decided whether i'll do any resolutions this year. i only vaguely outlined some in 2012 (in mid-february, too) but i guess now i only have to feel vaguely guilty about not keeping any of them. except in 2011 i had a proper list and kinda nailed it. perhaps that was me making a decision just then. dammit. now i have to write resolutions. i'll do them later. right now it's bed time.
