I’m not going to get all weepy and sentimental over the New Year. No Top Ten Lists. No witty remembrances of the year gone by. No blow-by-blow details of the previous nights’ debauchery. And definitely no overblown delusional under-thought out resolutions. Just some random bits and pieces, nothing by themselves to warrant a full post, but taken together enough to warrant a read. Maybe.
“It’s better to burn out than fade away.” Adios’ Monkeygirl. That giant sucking sound you heard was the blog-o-sphere adjusting to your absence. Hope you come back.
I resolve to proofread my postings. I went and read through some recent posts and realized I need to proofread. Frequently. Before I hit “Publish”.
I love Portland. Even though this year there was no official New Year’s celebration in Pioneer Court House Square, probably a thousand of us gathered nonetheless and had our own impromptu celebration. Singing, yelling, the countdown, the dude mooning the crowd with gold lame’ drawers on, a true “Keep Portland Weird” New Year’s. And the raucous singing on the MAX ride home made it even better!
And to everyone out there: Happy New Year!
