HAPPA GNU EAR!
So, I thought I was a 15 y/o boy, then I reverted to being a 12 y/o girl. Now, I'm back to being a 15 y/o boy. The Jman saw "Eragon" (the book) at Costco and bought it for me. Despite it being classified as "juvenile" literature, I'VE BEEN SUCKED IN!!! Now I *know* I will never see the movie, because CGI just can never compare with E Magi Nation. Granted, it *is* juvenile literature - obvious, clichéd and predictable, but I still love it. I love dragons; always have, always will. And it doesn't hurt that this particular dragon is one of extreme intelligence and mystery, and she is of the deepest color blue. . .
I hope everyone had a safe and sane New Years' celebration. I know I did - we watched "Shaggy Dog" on On Demand© (gawd, I love that!), then gave kisses and hugs at midnight. I made up little wish bags for us to put under our pillows - dollars for wealth, a vitamin for health (had to borrow WMG's; hmmm... might have to get me some o' my own...), an angel coin for blessings, and some form of good luck charm (horseshoe for the Jman, 4-leaf clover for the WMG and the kanji symbol for luck for me) - so we can have all of that in the new year. MEWP's bag is pink gauze with pink beads, so she was purty happy about that.
In the spirit of NY's resolutions, I got some containers for yarn overrun. Currently they're sitting in the middle of the living room floor, but hopefully one day they will be used for their intended purpose. . .
And in the spirit of a totally MELLOW New Years, I completely forgot about Faith's New Years Day partay. Complete and total brain fart. I remembered it friday nite (warned the Jman that I'd be at a biker/leather party!), and then the brain cloud that descended immediately wiped it from my memory until this morning as I was driving to work. And I'm really, really bummed. Because (1) I love Faith; (b) it's not often that I get to go to a party with a bunch of Harley riders in full regalia; and (iii) I am *SO* excited about Faith's new house and I could not wait to see it! Oy. Way to start the new year off.
Instead, I did 6 loads of laundry and cleaned out the WMG's drawers. Wooo-hoo!!!
