Happy early Hogmanay and New Year's Eve to you all.   I hope 2017 will be immeasurably better.  I have no resolutions but survive.  I intend to begin drinking tonight.



Good luck to everyone here. And Fuck 2016.

Yeah, 2016 was a shitty year. But I have a horrible feeling that it's the prelude to a far worse 2017 for most people.

I shall be sharing a bottle of cheap prosecco with my wife this evening, to celebrate the fact that we're still alive. Then I'll start on the bourbon once she falls asleep in front of the TV.

    My resolutions for far:

  • Lose 5kg
  • Do more sport (jogging and swimming)
  • Drink less
  • Play more computer games instead just hanging around in the front of the PC like a cat on tranquilizers on a sunny afternoon
  • Be more responsible
  • Grow as person.
  • Work on a career.
  • Return the video tapes.

I am ending the year with a terrible cold. Which means I am probably starting the year with a terrible cold.

My only resolution: try and survive.

Other than losing my little buddy Bart, 2016 was completely amazing for me, so I'm left out of step with all the morose liberals I work and socialize with.

My resolution for 2017 is to double down my efforts at learning to draw, and do everything in my power to get the atelier up and running. It's the first time since my band split up that I've felt the drive.

2016 wasn't amazing for anyone. Your little personal highlights are garbage in the face of humanity's existential crisis.

So far so good, but the first 10 hours aren't really indicative...

Happy New Year you shits.

I shared a $40 bottle of wine with four marriedish woman tonight - all was good.

My Resolution - $500 per paycheck for the next six months all towards debt. The good news is that I think I can pull it off.

Here's to a better 2017. Could it possibly be worse?

Spent my new year drinking and commiserating just outside of the DMZ that has become 57th street and 5th avenue.

20 days of prep left before shit gets real.

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

Against the exhortations of my purported intellectual superiors, I had a pretty good 2016.  I'll not bother listing off all the cool things since I assume I'll just annoy people.  Note that David Bowie was a big exception to that but I'm trying to keep perspective.  You guys can feel free to point out all the awful things that I should be whining about from 2016 if you like.

Also I have a cat with cancer but again I'm keeping perspective.  One out of eight household animals being on a short calendar is not terrible.  Wife is happier than normal, her business is doing well, I'm not sucking terribly careerwise, my boss likes me, and in 2017 I'll be in Europe for a week with a SVP of another local tech company.  The boy managed to get all A's in the first half.  House still standing.  Positive outlook, proactive stress management occurred, and mental ownership of my situation.  The world is mine to fuck up.

I guess I did list a few things.

Consequently: I'm having a tough time even imagining a concrete resolution for myself.  In fact, I think that my reasonable responses to life challenges (real, imagined, forecast, or interpolated) is a good indicator that I'm very OK.  Minus one or two items that you guys do not want to read about.

I did decide that I need to hire a personal trainer because I simply do not have the ability to force myself to work out.  I should have not come to this decision when every fatass in sub-suburban Atlanta will be doing the same, but hey.

Why am I homeless?  Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question.

Good on you.

I came to the conclusion around late October that we largely choose how miserable our life is perceived to be. It was destroying me and my marriage. I've gone another direction since then and been much happier. Thus my reduced presence here. You guys tend to foster a negative mindset.

My 2016 was good enough for me. I don't get affected by the deaths of celebrities, my heroes, or even estranged family members. There are a handful of deaths that can and will affect me, and I'm hoping that nature spares me from most of them. Or maybe they won't, I don't know. Death and I have a strange relationship.

Sure, my professional road was a bit bumpy at times (and this year is going to be somewhat weird), but I got through.

My big bummer was of course the election of Ubergropenfuhrer Tremendous Cheeto the first of his name, and hopefully things don't get too shitty due to that. I probably should have also bought a cheaper car.. ohh well.  DRILLING AND MANLINESS

I need to get in better shape. Not "in shape"; I just don't want to feel like vomiting after backyard football on Christmas. I just hate running, hate gyms, hate stationary exercise, and have no time for anything. Yay.

Eh, fuck 'em. I still love this place even if most folks are wicked emo. It's definitely a perception and mindset thing. The toe I broke last year was aching the other morning, rather than feel bitchy about it, I'm reminded of how the convalescence allowed me so much time to bum around the house with my cat. And rather than losing him 'wrecking the decade', I'm so very thankful to have had 8 long years of his company and given him a far longer and happier life than he'd have had on the street where he was found.

I have friends making a difference in city government, in the police and fire departments, in business, in the arts...it's just been an amazing year for so many people, if you stop focusing on what the media is pushing on you (don't be ignorant, but don't make it a bigger deal than your sphere of influence). I have a couple friends that opened the first brewery here since Prohibition.

But wow, some celebrities died. Strangers die every day.

Oddly, the Christian serenity prayer is a great mental reflex to develop (I'm not at all religious, it's just a good mechanism). Do what you can about what you can, and learn to make peace with the rest of it. Life's too short and precious to worry about stuff outside your sphere of control, and there are miracles and beauty to behold every day if you open your awareness to them. Have fun and do the thing!
