So, looking back on the past year, what were the most important/interesting things did you do/learn?
Going another year with Lydia without doing her appreciable damage.
Seeing my mother, sister Marcia, and niece Alex this summer; more importantly, my mother seeing, and getting to know, Lydia. Lydia recognizes my mother's picture now.
Went on about 9 dates with my wife this year; not so great, but it's something.
The office move to Corporate Woods: I know I used to complain about it a lot, though not so much lately. I still hate it, especially now that things have started disappearing from people's workstations on the floor. Since no one can get on the floor without badges, it's either other people working on the floor or the cleaning crew. And me without a door.
Listened to a lot of good music, and a little I wasn't so crazy about, largely due to the efforts of Fred, Lefty, Gordon and their compatriots. Merci! I'm devastated, though, to have sunk to #5 on Lefty's musical guru list. Ah, well, the price of fame.
Lost about 20 pounds this fall, then gained about half of it back after the bicycle crash. Eh.
Donated blood six times this year, again, even though I'm peeved by the ban on gay donors.
As a political science major, I'm as turned off as ever by politics. Yet I still vote, every time.
I've pretty much abandoned church committees. Not where I'm at, presently. Still doing the choir thing, though.
Yet I have taken on being Vice-President of the Friends of the Albany Public Library, and I'm trying to create definition for the job whose only actual function is to run the monthly meeting if the president''s away. I've lined up a speaker for National Library Month and started a blog, so far.
I'm sure I'll think - or you'll think - of other things.
Suicide is not painless
