The Holidays, 2004

And so the New Year begins - I hope everyone has a happy, healthy, and safe 2005 :)

Though I am not feeling the best I ever felt this morning, which is good and bad in itself, I decided to make a list of some of the things I'd like to remember about The Holidays, 2004. New Years itself is really just another day to me, and it does not bear much importance in my life. The year of 2004 contained many very important moments for me, many sad moments, many happy moments, many relaxed moments, and many I'm-so-stressed-I-want-to-pull-my-hair-out moments. I made some new friends, in some very unexpected ways, and tightened some already established friendships. It was a year like any other, though better than some. I am deeply looking forward to what 2005 has to offer me, a lot will be decided.

This past holiday season, however, has been very meaningful: mainly due to the presence of family and friends. And even sometimes both simultaneously. Right now, this is what I'd like to focus on. This is what stuck in my mind in regards to The Holidays, 2004:
  • "Merry Fucking Christmas" from the Bougies

  • Recycle bin looking very much like a wine bottle recycling plant - average 4 bottles a night.

  • "You're making baby Jesus cry"

  • Maracas in Church

  • "The red Ninja Turtle is so the Boss turtle"

  • "I like green beans and I cannot lie" ... "with a string bean in your face"

  • Electric.... EELS!

  • Scrabble: "Don't swear in front of your kids!" - "Yeah, one of them just spelt 'boner' for 12 points!"

  • Twat Team theme music

  • Mike's Wonder Woman barbie

  • Fantasy Princess jewlery set

  • Two Maroon 5's

  • "He couldn't crap his pants, they were pulled up too high!"

  • "aaaahhhhh FREAK OUT"

  • BLARNK

  • Ice skating with 8 year olds who were ten times better
Best of all: Mike managed to make his first Christmas in 3 years without puking in a van! WHOO :D

WEll, that is a significant positive for me this year. I was *SO* nervous going to Ottawa that I almost crapped my pants! I bet you really wanted to know that, didn't ya?

And a note to all your readers: under no circumstances should absinth be used anywhere on the human body other than the mouth. That shit burns!

As I don't have a blog, I'll be labelled anonymous. Really, my name is Ness. And I came across this blog through google (I can explain later), but anyway, your list of Holiday 2004 memories seems more eventful than mine, although I must say that the year 2004 has been, to say the least, interesting.

Eh. But I do enjoy your entries. Hooray.
