I'm leaving this journal. It's just not who I am anymore. I don't really know know what happened to that guy, other than he got older, and hopefully a little more rational, but he doesn't live here anymore and he didn't leave a forwarding address.

Oh, and to stem the tide of concerned emails - nothing is wrong, nothing has happened, everything is good, Lana and I are great, etc. I'm just done here, and it's time to move on.

Maybe I'll see you around. I'm going to start a new journal eventually; look for me when you see me.

But there are 515 words of it.

This is 2009, and I'm hitting the ground running.

I'm anticipating this being a big year for me personally and professionally. I have a number of goals for this year, and this is the year I'll actually accomplish them, by gum.
  1. This year I will lose 120 pounds. I will do this through a combination of diet and exercise. I will end the year in better shape than I've been in since high school.
  2. This year I will write. A lot. I will write no less than 500 words per day, not counting LJ and Facebook. I will participate in NanoWrimo. And I will have at bare minimum one published thing by the end of the year. I am not choosy about what that thing is (at the moment).
  3. I will speak gaelige conversationaly by the end of the year.
  4. I will get the storage unit cleared.
  5. I will be a non-smoker. Very soon, that one.
  6. I will participate in the SCA.
That's all for now, I still have a bunch of things I'd like to accomplish today. I hope everyone is having a great year!



And now for something really unusual

I don't know how many of you have seen today's Something Positive, or the bizarre storyline that led up to it, but let me be the first that I know of to suggest that with that much of Pepito left, you could probably grow a zombie Pepito.

Just sayin'.

Oh, and it's a good bizarre. It's even got Wil Wheaton!

A couple of things

First, I've dropped a couple of groups that I had been in. I no longer feel that I contribute much to them nor they to me; nothing against the operators of the coms or those who post there. If you're on one of those coms and want to know more, feel free to contact me privately.

Second, I am consistently astounded by people I've known in the past whose lives have taken far different and arguably better turns than I ever expected them to, even if I don't agree with some of their philosophical choices.

I'm regrouping a bit at the moment, and considering some of my choices, and some of my associations. I have a thing I might like to try, but I'm going to hold off on discussing it here for while until I've really had time to roll the potential pros and cons over in my head. The Samhain season is a good time for introspection; I'm going to make good use of it this year.

And that's it at the moment.

At last...

It has been said that for evil to triumph requires only that good men do nothing.

Yesterday the good people of this nation did something.

Yes we did.

Congratulations, Mr. President-elect. And good riddance, Mr. President.

For a change, we won.

1. Stop talking about politics for a moment or two.
2. Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ, NOT under a cut tag, of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.
3. Include these instructions, and share the love.

Tonight I'm going to make something, or at least start making something. I was inspired by this entry at the wondrous Steampunk Workshop, and now have in mind my own take on what I would like for a travel journal/sketchbook of mine very own.

Pictures, of course, will follow.

I can't wait to see how this comes out!

I'd like to think this was a joke...
Politics

Except I know it's not. NY sends out ballots printed with Barak Osama.

They say it was a typo. I'm frankly flabbergasted that anyone could possibly believe that. I'm looking at a keyboard right now. A hunt and peck typist could not make this mistake, and it's very hard to imagine someone who actually knows how to type making it, since they're on different rows hit by different fingers.

A typo my pale pink hinie. This was every bit of a deliberate act.

These jokers will try gorram anything.
