happy winter solstice

Today is the shortest day of the year. I am happy that from now until June, there will only be more hours of sunlight, because I'm tired of doing things in perpetual semi-darkness.

In a couple hours, friends will start arriving from all over the world to celebrate mah birfday with me, acts of love and friendship that I am so grateful for. It's been a hard year, a long year, and I hope that 2008 will be better. I'm not anxious to leave my late early twenties behind, but the future is calling, it's now or never.

I'm going to be leaving to go home for Christmas in a couple days, so I probably won't get much of a chance to post here between now and the 26th, when I'll be back.

So my New Year's resolution for this year is to be the positive, optimistic, cheerful person I'm used to. More than anything, I hate how my current situation has turned me into a cranky, stressed out, grasping individual. That's not me. I must turn my attitude around, or else I'm going to start hating myself as well.

Until then, Queen:

It's a hard life,

In a world that's filled with sorrow

There are people searching for love in every way

Yes, it's a hard life

But I'll always live for tomorrow

I'll look back on myself and say,

I did it for love.

Yes, I did it for love.

the early-late twenties last until you're 28. Then begins the late twenties. Happy Birthday, love. I will mail your card soon - but I spent 40 ron today mailing 3 Christmas cards. I'm thinking of you!

Maybe that's why I couldn't sleep last night...fates telling me I need be sacrificing the goat. Or maybe a virgin to a volcano. Hmmm. So sleepy...

Happy solstice!

Happy Birthday!

Have a meat pie for me tonight.

Jack who?

Do I know a Jack?

I doubt it. I'm new at this blog business, and I was cruising the neighborhood when I fell over your blog. I liked it. I'm looking for someone to co-author a play, one line at a time via email. Fun.

Curious enough to contact me?
