Sayonara, 2009

I have never in my life looked back at any year, on New Year's Eve, and thought "this year sucked!"

Until now. As many nice things that happened this year—and I do acknowledge and appreciate them—man, 2009 sucked swamp water.

My resolution of the year: Lots of fresh, clean water.

Oh, and I'm giving up my "How is That Woman Still Standing?" Title. I'm tired of being the poster-child for that award, y'hear, 2010? In fact, I'm burning the honor altogether, because I don't want to pass it on. After the bonfire, I'm heading to St. Louis, and I'm going to have dinner at Schlafly's, and raw oysters at the Oyster Bar for dessert, and then I'm going ring in the new year with friends and family (and Clint, he's both) and then I'm going to take 2010 by storm.

That is all.


  1. And I hope it's a great one for you too.

  2. "In fact, I'm burning the honor altogether, because I don't want to pass it on."

    As most of my friends and family seem to think I'm in line for this, I appreciate your willingness to burn the damn thing. Interestingly enough, a good number of people I know feel the same way about 2009: it wasn't the best of years. Or, as I would've put it in my younger years, 2009 sucked dead goats. The good things were some of the best ever. Frankly, the bad were equally bad.

    Shall I feed you martinis until the question "how is that woman still standing?" takes on a whole different meaning? Yes. That will do, I think. >:)

  3. Happy New Year!
