Happy Last Day of 2008!

Aloha! How are you, internet? I hope you are well. Chances are pretty good that you're not here to read my blog but you did a GIM for "hibiscus tattoo." Regardless, Happy New Year's Eve, photo-seeker.

Other searches conducted in the past week to land people here:

"your mom's carpet is a boodledang"
"freckle-ey"
"old lady bruises"
"yoga ass"
"pam hasse" - hey searcher, if you ever find her, let me know.
"what does the name sddita mean"
"poon saloon"

Not my greatest group of referring phrases, but still, some good ones. :-)

So, I just took the Ultimate Sixteen Candles Quiz, and got 100%. :-) You should try it. It's at OKcupid which used to be thespark.com - I miss that site- it was pure comedy and none of the weirdo dating crap. It used to make me LAUGH. Especially their greeting cards. They had one that used to say, "Blast off to planet leg" with this image:


Holy crap, I don't think I'm making much sense. I'm hopped up on 2+ cups of coffee and vegetarian sausage (shut up!). I also woke up with more boogers than should be humanly possible. It was nice to have normal nose functioning and unchapped lips while I was in Texas. Crossed the Kansas/Colorado border on the way back and I was an instant static and booger machine. With an extra monstrosity of some sort under my right eye. Not sure what the hell it is/was. I'm too old to get a blemish like that!

Wow - talk about a tangent.

I hope everyone has a very safe and Happy New Year's Eve. I'm actually looking forward to it for the first time in several years. I'm ready to relax and have a good time. Plus, we're cabbing it, so that makes me feel even better.

To 2008 - I say good riddance. You were a very trying/interesting/volatile year. But a year where I did a lot of self-discovery and growing. Learning the hard way. I've been fixing lots of stuff, both physically and existentially. As the year rolled on, things slowly seemed to improve - especially after October. I actually *want* to drive my new car everywhere - that is something soooooo new for me.

I actually feel more like myself and happy. The world is funny like that.

HappyKap is back!

An Open Letter to Pizza

Dear Pizza,

I love you. You know that I do, with all of my heart, always and forever.

But, the thing is - I think I may have to go ahead and back out of our planned nuptials.

You see, I've kinda been cheating on you.

I just did a trip down to Texas and back this week - and I'm just going to come out and say it - I am in love with my new car.

I'll always love you and I KNOW we'll be friends forever.

Love,
Heather

The Giver Reflects on Christmas Eve

This is the first year in my adult life that I have not gone all out and unleashed an arsenal of presents on everyone. At the request of many, I have reigned in the giving and have been suffering withdrawals along the way. It really kinda hurts to not shower those I love with gifts, but I think it's been a really great exercise in restraint.

I didn't hunt for the perfect gifts. I didn't study everyone and make determinations on what they need. I truly sat that this one out. And goddamn, does my ass hurt.

For me, holidays have always just been about being together, but there is something addictive about the giving part. So, this junkie is just going to have to power through.
