And a Happy New Year

Hey gang!
Christmas is over, and I'm depressed. I really love Christmas, it is my abosolute favorite holiday, and by November I'm humming Christmas carols under my breath, just waiting for the Christmas season to get here. Now that it's over, it's hard to let go. I tried to fill the void by gluttonizing (is that even a word?) on Chirstmas cookies, but I started to balloon over 400 pounds and decided to lay off. However, with the new year approaching rapidly, I'm getting excited. My family always just kinda hangs out and stuff when the new year comes. It's fun, and when the ball drops we drink sparkling red grape juice and sing that song I can never remember the words to. Something about "For all the grapes that we have stomped and got all on our feet..."? Unfortunately I have to work that night, so my celebrating will start late, around 10 or 10:30. That aggrivates me, but I'll get over it.
On the writing front, I've written some in Jerucia, and some in Clairvoyant, but not much. The holiday season kicked my butt. Everytime I thought I might get a chance to write, I had something else I had to do. Christmas Eve traveling, a wedding, a birth, Christmas traditions, and work in between, I've had my rear kicked. However, I'm setting aside tomorrow to write all that I can.
Now for Christmas news. I'm happy to report that I got a few things that I've been pining for a while. I got a digital camera, which will mean nifty new pictures on this site when I get the chance, and a printer/scanner, which means even more nifty stuff I can add to the site. I also got an Mp3 player, which is great. No I can fit all the songs I listen to onto one little thing instead of having to burn a new cd everytime I want some new music. Also I got a flash drive--which means that I don't have to worry, my stories will no longer be clogging up my hard drive--and I got BROTHER ODD!! I'm not quite finished yet, but I'm going to have my nose stuck in the book so deep the ink will rub off on it when I get off of here. It's fantastic so far, just like I thought it would be.
News about the podcast: I have been forming ideas for what I want it to be about, and I've got notes jotted down here and there, but nothing recorded yet because I've been way to busy. The podcast is a low priority thing right now.
In other news, I've changed the look of the site (again). I know, you must be tired of me jumping around, but I'm striving for a unique look, which I think I've achieved (finally). The new site pic, and the background make me feel much better. I'll leave this one for a while, because I really do like it.
Also, I've added two new pages to the site: a page dedicated to New Years Resolutions. Go there if you visit my site and type yours in the commenting section. I'm not going to type my resolutions. Why? Because I haven't made any, and I'm not gonna. Do you know why? Because I shouldn't have to change to please someone else, I like myself the way I am. Everyone else should have to change to please me! I don't have to change, I'm perfect, and if someone doesn't like me, it's probably because my perfection shows them their flaws and instead of facing their faults they make up faults for me to make me seem less than what I am--perfect. Yup, that's why I'm not making New Years Resolutions...or maybe it's because I know I won't keep them.
Also, I added an opinion page. I'll type reviews of stuff that I've read or watched recently, just to give you an idea of what I've been doing and some recommendations you might like.
Taya and Anne's podcast that is supposed to have me in it has been haulted for now. Taya's mp3 player has been stolen and so she can't record it. I hope she gets a new one, or gets the old one back. I'd hate it if mine were gone. I keep it on me like it's grown attached.
Anyway, that's all for now. Make sure to check out the New Years Resolutions page and post your vows for the new year.

But CHRISTMAS ISN"T OVER YET! Do you remember that song "The Twelve Days of Christmas"??? Well, technically, Christmas doesn't REALLY end until January 6, so enjoy it. hooray! And I reeeaaaally like the look of the site as well! When I went to it and saw it I was like "WHOA! this is amazing!" and it really, really fits you. I like it! Hooray!

If I see another Christmas cookie...

Just wanted to pop in and say hi. I added you to my blogroll.

I am not ready for 2007. My resolution is to pretend it's 1999. ;)
