In past years I’ve used the final post of the year to give a synopsis of my year. For 2007 it will suffice to say “It sucked!” Well, there was a fun trip to Arizona and two great weeks spent in Seattle and Canada. And I did really well financially. But other than that 2007 I don’t have much love for the year that was 2007. Time to move on…
Fifteen If By Day, Eight If By Night
If you ever fear being completely alone I have a perfect plan for you to implement.
First you have to agree to host a Sunday Runners’ event. The call of beer and bacon will bring these people out even when the weather is completely crappy (see also “yesterday’s weather”). Yesterday I had ten people come over and run, and another four who came over to eat my delicious food (the offer of free beer helped, I’m sure) along with fantastic unsolicited additions brought over by others (apparently my food is not as good as I thought).
The second part of that plan is to kick the Sunday Runners out so that you can shower and drive to Roswell to have dinner with friends. Be careful with this one however because people at this type of event often know your personal history even though they are generally three-sheets-to-the-wind when such history occurs. Last night’s excuse to get me to travel OTP was to see Laura, who went and got herself all knocked-up by her hubby Bob. I lost the “I traveled the furthest to get here game” because Raleighites (Raleighinians?) Lurking Lisa and Randy came in to visit as well. You’ve probably seen them hanging around the comments here, and my photo of their dog Sugar was my pick for best photo from April. Also in attendance for the dinner Barb (also a frequent commenter), her husband Allan who has no time for such nonsense as blogging, and MC (aka “Sonya”). I am proud to say that the meateaters outnumbered the vegetarians five to three.

Did I mention that I was at one of the four sold-out Band Of Horses shows at The EARL this weekend?
Did I mention that I was one person away from the front of the stage? (next to that “annoying girl” who is too cute for words, is always kissing her boyfriend, getting wasted off her ass, and dancing wildly around singing to every song — I think you know the type)
Did I mention that I only brought my point-and-shoot camera because I didn’t think that there was any way that I would get close enough to get good shots of the band?
What Are You Doing On New Year’s Eve?
As for me, the answer will most likely be “staying home.” For me New Year’s Eve is a “couples event” (beaten only by Valentine’s Day). And, as you may guess from my year’s worth of blogging I am currently uncoupled. There is a chance that I’ll head somewhere. There is a chance that I might wander up to the East Atlanta Village. There is a chance that I will not. What ever you decide to do for New Year’s Eve please be careful and watch out for the people who shouldn’t be behind the wheel of a car.
There is a 100% chance that I will be at the annual Cheddarhead Day Hash put on by the Atlanta Hash House Harriers and Harriettes. I’ve got a bowling title to defend you know…
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
