…and a new one just begun.
Reflection post ala last year.
Um. It was a long year?
Okay, maybe not so much reflecting. Brian came home at the beginning of November and he’s had to work very little so i’ve been spending a lot of time with him. Obviously. I went to see Joan Jett and Huey Lewis in August, that was pretty amazing. Bonny got her eye removed in July. I went to the only wedding where i’m ever going to get a vegan meal (but that’s okay, because I don’t anticipate going to a lot of weddings). Other than that everything is pretty much a blur. Oh, except my dog summer. I had two foster dogs for a few months, so I had four dogs and three cats up in this piece. I tried keeping them outside as much as I could, but it was mostly too hot, plus I got lazy, plus they were digging holes under the fence and one time Bonny got out with them and I nearly shat myself. So most of my summer involved me waking up at six am to let dogs out, then taking a blanket to the couch, while they jumped all over me for awhile, and then falling back asleep with all four dogs on me if I laid right.
I miss them lots and it hurts to look at pictures of them.
Pushing Daisies got cancelled, causing my faith in humanity to shrivel up and die a little more. If Fox can keep Dollhouse on the air for a little bit, it might come back.
I did not drink soda for the entire year. I also got my hair matched to my roots and didn’t dye it any funky colors for the whole year so I wouldn’t have to bleach it annd chop it off. I drank a Dr. Pepper on New Years Eve, which was delicious. I woke up today feeling horrible. My next soda will be another Dr. Pepper in 364 days. I’m going to get my hair lightened soon. I was born blonde and I will die blonde, dammit.
And then I bought a lot of music. A LOT. I got a zune and stopped buying cds because I already have a crazy dvd collection, and digital music is almost half the price of a tangible cd. Also, Amazon MP3 has daily deals and weekly specials where you gets albums for five bucks and under. It’s a sick addiction, I actually have a folder of bookmarked albums to buy because if I bought all of the ones I wanted we would be eating buttered noodles and wonder bread for dinner. I’d have to send Bonny out front to sell lemonade (it’s really just her peeing in a cup, shhhh).
It took me forever to make that little music collage! I also made you a mixtape of individual songs that I listened to a lot this year. You should listen to it and admire the amazing artwork that I made with google images and photoshop.
In conclusion, 2008 was a year of nothing much except music. 2009 will hopefully be more interesting and deployment free.
