As I was sayin' to [livejournal.com profile] wolfshark the other day, this was the kind of year that made you want to decapitate it, burn the body, and bury it at a crossroads with a stake through its heart. I'm just sayin'.

Hm. 

Ups: Obama! The carpal tunnel surgery was an unqualified success. People liked/bought my jewelry. I still have a job. Miraculously, none of my relatives died. My sister seems to have (finally) gotten her act together. While I didn't lose any weight, I didn't gain any, either. My blood pressure seems to be under control...and I finally talked to my doctor about my depression. So far, the meds seem to be helping, though I've been having issues with nosebleeds.

Downs: My best friend's brother died suddenly. My nephew has turned into an 18-year-old asshat. We lost a bunch of really talented people. The economy continues to suck. Work, while there, continues to bore and annoy me on a daily basis.

Media happiness: Criminal Minds, Supernatural, NCIS, Middleman, Leverage, Eureka, Burn Notice, True Blood, Dr Who, Iron Man, Wall-E, Cloverfield, Nation.

Media sadness: No more SGA, probably no more Middleman. Heroes. Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull.

Resolutions: Only two. 1) work out at least 3 days a week. 2) Pay off the smaller credit card. That's it.

Tonight: Pizza, cable TV. Tomorrow: Tamales and black-eyed peas. Friday: Back to work.

Thankful for: All of you! You rock my world!

Let me preface this by saying I am not a practicing Christian of any flavor. :-) So, no fasting on Ash Wednesday, etc., etc. (Sorry, [livejournal.com profile] dremiel!)

Lent always struck me as "Resolution Lite". It's only 6 or so weeks, after all! Much easier to handle for the tough ones.

I'm giving up fried food. I did this several years ago, but the siren call of fried shrimp lured me back in. This will help with my overall resolution* to get healthier this year; I'm already working out on a regular basis, and I'm making a real effort to avoid bad snacking.

Hee! Pancakes!



*I actually set my New Year's resolutions by the Asian (lunar) New Year. It just feels easier. Plus, I can get over the holidays before I start anything new.
