Looking Back

First - looking back at my September blog post - who the hell was I in a relationship with in September?

OK moving on. 2009 is almost here. Let me just say 2008 friggin' SUCKED. SUCKED HARD. 2009 has GOT to be better. 'Cuz DAMN. I am so not in the holiday spirit. Normally I would be glued to Dick Clark right about now. I'll tune in at 11:59:59, but that's about it. Whoo. Freakin'. Hoo.

At least I'm ENDING the year right - an unexpected blessing in a boyfriend I love. Ooh and no S.A.D. symptoms. And I'm so eager for the damn year to be over I don't have my usual sad sack list of things I didn't do in the past year. Whatever. I'm alive.

So here's to a...not sucky 2009.

Me in Pictures

I saw this in a blog and thought it was pretty cool.
First, go to Flickr. Then, go to Big Huge Labs’ mosaic-maker in a second tab in the same window so you can easily switch back & forth. Now you’re going to fill in your answers, then do a photo search in Flickr for each word or phrase. You must then choose one photo from the FIRST PAGE ONLY of your results that most resonates with you and then enter each photo url into the mosaic-maker. Once you finish, hit create and there you have it. (And at any given time, the results can be different based on Flickr photo activity.)
