Well there went 2005 and now I am making my first 2006 entry. How about that? 2005 was a good year, a very good vintage, but let’s not dwell in the past (that is what archives are for), let’s look ahead to the future and all the promise it holds.
I had a nice chat this morning with Tim before he had go to off to play board games. This morning he thought it had been cancelled since no one had called him — and we were going to go and see a movie. However one of the other guys called and asked him for a ride, thus meaning the game was on and I was left to my own devices.
I did think about going over and seeing if Sarah was about and wanted to hang out, but that is really short notice.
Before Tim left he played two bouts of Star Wars with me. Damnit, I wish I had some friends who would come over and play video games with me today. Or I could go someplace else and play them too! Le sigh. It’s that kind of a weekend where I am not in the mood to be overly ambitious. I don’t want to make my resolutions yet…I need another week to ponder on that. I like making them, but now is not the time to make it. I need a good one, it’s there, it’s just waiting for the perfect time to realize itself.
On Saturday we went to a party at Troy and Allison’s—and had a great time! I wish we could have stayed longer because it was so nice to see out of towners, but we had promised to go another party before midnight. They had door prizes and I won a calendar! The best part is that it’s another Wacky Whiskers calender — the sequel to the one we already had in the kitchen! We compared and noticed that there were four repeats…oh well. It was free and it tell us the date whenever we are the kitchen and happen to know what day of the week it is.
After that we made it to Laima’s where we were greeted with a wonderful seafood spread! Oh the food was good, but I had little appetite at both parties, and so I only had one or two items at each. I have food regret now, let me tell you. I wish I could go back in time and eat food. Let me tell you that sushi with peppermint sprinkles isn’t that good though. We had sparkler’s at midnight, with a kiss or two and then more booze. Laima had the best mulled wine though, I really liked it…
Then to bed by 3:00. No TOO shabby. I took a few pictures but you gotta remember they are on a disposable camera and I’d have to pay an extra three bucks to get them on a disk…and is that worth it? I don’t think so. Especially since I could theoretically scan any pictures I *really* like at work. Then email them to me and then put them up.
Hm. Amy called last night and said she had an interview today…we might have hung out after it, but since it’s almost two I don’t think that is going to happen.
I think I’m bored. But you know, you need to spend time being a little bored and not having anything to do in order to get the creative juices flowing. I know there are things I COULD be doing, but … why force it? I have one more day of it, tomorrow. Then it’s the new year for real, back to work, back to TKD, back to letters, journals, back to eating healthy, all that jazz.
So yeah, that is where I am at right now. A little bored, a tad lonely and thinking about reading the rest of the day away.
NOTE — and my site is being wonky today. It’s a good thing that I copied this entry before I tried to post it at 1.52PM. I guess I’ll try to post it again later. Suck.
