Happy New Year
Let the fireworks begin! Turn this cul-de-sack into downtown Baghdad!!
Bloody hell people, are some of you using live rounds?
Let’s see, for this past year, I bought a new bike, a bunch of train sets, a new computer – 6-core set your hair on fire edition, lots of pocket watches, the Kindle Fire, a second iPad, an Amazon Prime subscription, a massive bean bag, the Aerogarden, and tons of new software. I met Dan Aykroyd, bought a bunch of signed vodka bottles I’ll never drink, and went with my good friends to two Rush shows. I didn’t read anywhere near the books I wanted, but did manage to read a couple books by William Zinsser, Zak Bagans and Fergus Hume. Don’t worry Josh, I’ll be reading your book next. The iPad is an amazing reader by the way. I finished paying child support and my ex-wife shisted me out of seeing my son graduate. My ex-wife is a harpy, just fyi.
Unfortunately we didn’t do any traveling this year. I was hoping we would end up going somewhere other than the beach. Savannah is looking good for next year though. I also bought a beer kit and made 30 gallons of beer so far. They may not be award winners, but not a bad drink in the bunch. There are so many new kits I want to try next year. I even bought a domain name at auction which was pretty funny.
The Bug still doesn’t work, but it hasn’t rusted out either.
As far as TV goes we watched some fantastic stuff. I watched all three seasons of Oz and James’ Big Adventure which I adore. There was James’ Toy Stories series which was amazing as well. I love every episode. There was James in the Man Lab as well as Top Gear and Downton Abbey. Let’s not forget Doctor Who and Torchwood, Burn Notice, Covert Affairs and White Collar. And my favorites of NCIS, Dexter and American Horror Story. American Horror Story turned out to be a creepy little gem. There was also the latecomer of Once Upon a Time with Randy’s brother. That show has been exciting for both Donna and I. I had my doubts about that show when I first heard about it. The concept seemed a little silly, but they gave it a dark spin that is working really well.
So things for next year? Lose weight, save money, ride the bike. We have a trip in the works to go to Savannah. That should be kickass. Get me on a ghost tour! I’m also thinking about strapping a camera to my bike. That will make for some interesting times.
Lots of new ideas and plenty of stuff to work on for next year. I just need to find the motivation to follow through on all my ideas.
