Brain Puke XVI

Look out blogger friends, I'mma gonna hurl!

As Freckles (the Canadian dear) pointed out, I have not written a post like this for over a year, so...THAR SHE BLOWS (heh heh heh)!

We lost 3 blogger friends this year: David Jeffries, Wayne The Cajun, Jay Murphy.  :(

Once a month, a local knitter friend and I meetup to drink and eat and talk and knit.  I have always had trouble making women friends cause...bitches.  I actually look forward to my meetups with "the tree"!

OMB, Spo sent me this FABU video yesterday:

I know beary guys are not everyone's cuppa tea (no rubbish) (sorry, Debra), but sweet mother of pearl!

I STILL wish my boyfriends lived closer to me. 

I am STILL going to the gym 2x/week.  After 5 years, I am still fat, but I am strong and flexible and toning up and my arthritis keeps away due to weight lifting/pushing/pulling.  My highest is a leg machine - 215 pounds pushing.  My lowest is a shoulder machine - 20 pounds lifting.  I never thought that exercise could be fun and that I would stick with it this long.  I thank my caring trainers for that. 

I finished 8 knitting projects this year.

Now for a musical interlude:

2015 saw some great things happen:
Marriage equality (finally)

Queen Elizabeth II became the longest-reigning monarch in Britain

Spouse and I got to Rehoboth Beach in October for a long weekend and some boyfriend meetups

I acquired some new blog followers

Justin Trudeau (RAWR!) elected PM of Canada

I celebrated 12 years at my job, the longest job I have ever held 

Now for a musical interlude:

2015 also saw some shit hit the fan:

White people killing black people

Donald the Rump, and the rest of the GOP h8ers

Religious nutjobs spouting off whackadoodle theories

Bill Cosby (what a skeevy homeboy)

All the Kraptrashian/Jenner Klan

All the Duggar Klan

Kim (the Kentucky Kunt) Davis

My loser baseball/football/basketball/hockey teams

Jessica Simpson and her ugly sister Ashlee...WHY do these two even exist

Some hillbillies named Joey & Rory F(r)eek

The entire US Congress

Several SCOTUS members

The entire PA state legislature

Domestic USA home-grown citizen terrorists 

Now for a musical interlude:

Happy Holiday Happening!

Happy Holly Daze to one and all!

See if you can find "beavis and butthead", the 2 phillies ornaments, the yellow submarine, and "our first xmess" ornament!  No, there is no "waldo".

To my commenters - fun fax 4 u:

My tree is 38 years old, a gift from my sister when I moved into my first apartment in 1977 (I had been living with the sperm and egg donors until then).

The lights and the treetop star are new this year.

The tree skirt was crocheted in the late 80s by a now-deceased former co-worker.

The tree is under four feet (a nod to spo) and sits on my sunporch so as not to tempt my curious kitties.

So I Won This Award...

...from Fearsome Beard (the dear).  He seems to think I write great words of wisdom and knowledge.  Nope.  Not here.

Here are the rules:

My personal nominations (in no particular order):
going gently
I should be laughing
she who seeks
a day with the mistress borghese

tales of the sissy

The Questions: 

Which literary genre do you prefer - bio/autobio, travel, baseball, knitting 

Why did you start blogging - cause I was dared into it by some boyfriends 

Order or Chaos - order 

Where would you like to live - right here in my hometown. If not, the hudson river valley in NY state 

Starry sky or sunset - sunset 

Better the paper book or rather the e-book - paper 

What is the writing for - to connect with my boyfriends 

What do you think about social networks - they suck.  I blog and belong to a knitting/crochet social network only.  I don't need the rest. 

TV or not TV - no TV, TYVM 

Favorite food - chinese, italian, thai, indian, seafood, mexican, bbq

Favorite music genres - everything but religious and (c)rap

Eleven random facts about me:

I am a minimalist; I do not let possessions define me

I do not like extreme cold or extreme heat; my ideal climate is 70 degrees with low humidity

I am claustrophobic

I have a fear of heights

I have a fear of water

At a function where I know no one, I tend to stay on the perimeter, listening to conversations and people watching

"Tell It To My Heart" - is that really hair or just extensions?  Whatever it is, it's F-U-G-L-Y!
