Good question, this one (missed yesterday because, frankly, I’m an ungrateful sod).

  • This is the year I came out. About depression.
  • I appreciate the few friends I have, who are intelligent, gorgeous and not needy.
  • I met the wonderful Simonne Jameson and started work on her memoir.
  • Realised that I’m working in a career that I love. I’m a publishing lifer. I know a lot about it and I’m good at it.
  • I don’t like my parents. The next part is to not feel so guilty about it.
  • The country estate rocks my world.
  • I love making pottery.
  • My friend, Momo, and her family returned to the city!!!
  • I’m a writer.
  • I can change my mind about things if I wanna.
  • I saw Muse (again) and loved them (again).
  • I voted, twice, and don’t feel like much of a winner, even though the party I definitely didn’t want to win didn’t win.
  • Kanye West’s new album is pretty amazing. I hate myself for believing this so I’m not linking to it. I spoke in haste. I had listened to two songs then I downloaded a torrent of the album (cos that kid’s NOT getting MY money) and on listening to it this morning (Dec 17) I realised it’s just a lot of the same old. His rapping styles is amazing though, truly, but when he goes into singing, he blows it for me. Whatever, listen for yourself.
  • An old friend died. I’m sad she’s not in the world any more, even though I haven’t seen her in years.
  • Despite some awfully crappy times, I had a lot of happy moments, and JJ was around for them.
