“Today is where your book begins…

…the rest is still unwritten.”

-Natasha Bedingfield, Unwritten

I’d like to do a little ‘welcome to 2006′ year-in-review dealie, but liiiike, I’ve totally neglected to fill you in on ANYTHING that’s happened in the last month or so of 2005!!


THEREFORE, I think we should catch up a bit, yeah?

Schtuff I Learned During the Month of December 2005:

  • The kids might not know who they are, and some of the fans might need walkers in 10 years, but Depeche Mode has STILL GOT IT GOIN’ ON…

    I {{heart}} DM
  • If you neglect your blog, the comment spammers will launch an all-out, no-holes-barred, shock-and-awe ATTACK on your ass. Be prepared.
  • If a boy starts making out with you in the back of a cab while you’re mildly intoxicated, chances are more than likely that you will leave something behind when you get out. Hopefully, when it happens to YOU, it will not be your digital camera. :(
  • If, the morning after the Company Christmas Party, you ask a co-worker, “So, was I just DRUNK or EMBARASSINGLY Drunk?” and HE replies, “Well, you fell DOWN, so I’d say EMBARASSINGLY Drunk,” it is not a good sign. (Despite what you heard, however, Raven and I did NOT make out in the ladies’ room.)
  • Just because the turkey is labeled “FRESH,” doesn’t mean it’s not FROZEN. Following that, if some parts of said turkey are still frozen when you decide to cook it because it cost $22 and you’re not ABOUT to NOT cook it, it will come out F.I.N.E.

    Maybe a little flaky, but still tasty.
  • Christmas ain’t Christmas without no goddamned Christmas Tree! If I have to spend Christmas at your house, and you aint got no tree, I’mma put one UP.

    This was the tree at my apt.
  • Lastly, if your two-year-old niece asks for a handknit sweater from the man in red a MONTH before Christmas and you don’t manage to finish it in time, she likely will NOT lose her faith in Santa. Why, you ask? Because she won’t have ANY idea that she ever asked for the thing in the first place, naturally.

    HOWEVER, if you DO manage to finish it in time, she WILL like it and will look cute as HELL wearing it on the sit-n-spin you bought her. :)

    I wish I had known how adamant you were about Christmas trees…I’da made you come to my house.
    Now, you listen to me girlie…quit making out with people in cabs (unless it’s my brother). Digital cameras are precious commodities.

    That teeny tiny sweater is adorable. And so is the kid!

    Great re-cap! Looks like your December/Christmas was a blast [well, what you can remember, I guess!]

  5. Christina Says:

    Yoour niece’s sweater came out fantastic. Now I feel even worse that I didn’t finish my niece’s sweater. Like a subpar Aunt. I’ll just keep telling myself that Valentine’s day is just as good.

  7. Stephanie Says:

    Looks like you had quite a month. The sweater turned out perfect and looks just adorable.

  8. Carol Says:

    I knew you’d get it done in time.

  9. Rossana Says:

    Happy 2006! You are SUCH the Awesome Aunty! What a great sweater and such a cute little model! Golly, that must’ve been some kinda smoochin’ goin’ on back in that cab. Dreamy. And a final thought…somebody should name their blog “Flaky, but still tasty.” =p Oh, I might have been just describing meself. Hee!
