Thats true. Not sure what I am going to try this year. But I am getting a lot of small canvases painted for the Home FWA.

TPBM is anxious to know the theme for 2014 so they can ignore it again.

Knowing I'm not going makes me really indifferent to the theme.
tpbm thinks the theme will be uplifting.

I think the theme will be more clunky Larrybabble spun off from some poor, blameless words

Yep! Especially when I try to find labels that say Made in USA/America and ingredients that don't include high fructose corn syrup or sugar, except maybe natural occurring sugar.

I went through December sober, mostly to prove that I could. During the month I failed to get a promotion I was assured was mine, a good friend accepted a job across the country, and my girlfriend of four years left me. When the clock strikes midnight, well, two days seems like a safe bet.

TPBM has a real resolution for 2014.

I dont make resolutions. If I have a great idea, or something that I should do, I implement it immediately. No sense in waiting for new years....

I stayed in, no hangover. I could have stayed up late, but didn't and then slept and dozed a long time, which was nice. Work today was an incredibly long day.

Nah . . . I found one good gin at the Burn in 2011 when Westnileraven served me icy cold Hendrick's and ginger ale . . . well, it tasted like light, clean rosy ambrosia, and while maybe a large part of it was just great company and a beautiful day, but it was more than I thought possible from a gin, so I don't need to look any further. :)

No, but I am casting longing glances at Cards Against Humanity. But that's not a solitaire...
tpbm figures you might as well cheat at solitaire, because a good shuffle takes a while and you don't have to count it on your win record--once you cheat it becomes practice.

You might as well cheat. When you pick up that cards as most people do when returning them to the deck the average shuffle will still leave them coming off the deck in the reverse order that you need them.

Actually I started my projects about 3 months ago. Bad paintings for Anti M's home for wayward art.

TPBM is as worried as I am about getting a ticket for TTITD before getting too heavily into the art projects.

Yes I do. I sold some stuff that I don't need on a online auction site and have my ticket money ready.
Cant wait for my 2nd year.

TPBM hopes that ticket info is out soon.
