The year in review

by statia on December 28, 2004

Last year ms. pants did a year in review list that I liked so much, I did one of my own. I kind of dig doing this because I like to go through my archives and read my old stuff and reflect. I’m realizing that I’m forgetting things of my childhood and it scares the shit out of me. I think one of the only reasons I still blog (besides bringing you all the daily poop humor) is so that I can remember things I might otherwise forget. I also tend to freak out this time of year and feel like I’m wasting my life doing nothing and not experiencing my life to the fullest. Don’t get me wrong, this has been a big year for me, but that doesn’t mean that I want to come home and sit on the couch every night and not do anything. I would like to make a list of things to do in my lifetime type thing.

January: Had a hard time getting back into work mode after 2 weeks off of work. It was also really fucking cold last January. So glad I’m not in that weather. Went to Florida on a business trip and got to see Robyn. Almost got to meet mini todd and robyn too, but he decided that he wasn’t quite ready to make an appearance yet.

February: Ok, now mini todd and robyn decides to be finished cooking. Had a brief boy stint, glad that didn’t last. Met up with some old high school friends. Did the stupidest thing ever…. EVER.

March: Changed my domain. Went to Boston to visit the cousins. I got bit and end up with my boob in the water dish. I finally registered to vote.

April: Annual Strippers and Beer Day (aka Good Friday). I got to meet Buddha, Valley, Buzz and Empress. YOINK! Finally met the Meester after what seemed like the longest wait ever. The world has ceased to be the same ever since.

May: Won $2000 in a contest at work, that money came in handy, but now that I have that money, I realize just how much I fucking hate shopping for pants. Tried and hated the McGriddle. Syrupy pancake egg sammiches are so.fucking.wrong. Went to visit Ms. Pants and finally got to meet Jen, and threw up a little. Discovered the mecca that is Sephora. I also flew to CA for the first time to see the meester. For someone who hates flying, I flew a lot this year.

June:After flying back and forth and having to leave the meester one too many times, I made the decision to be the one to move. The meester’s company of all places found my resume online and hired me, upping the move date a bit, making me pack my place up and organize a move in two weeks. Saying goodbye to everyone was hard. I was right when I said I’d look back on all of that months later and laugh.

July: After my last Philadelphia supper, losing the car keys, we finally set off on the longest car ride ever. I waited forever for my moving truck to get here and had to live with a bowl, a pot, a pan, and a spoon. The meester was McGuyver before he met me. Hell, he’d never spent more than 40 bucks at the grocery store until I came along. I also saw my first ocean sunset. And remember, restricted entries are gay!!

August: Sweet mother of Jesus, the Jelly Belly factory rules! I can’t flip eggs. I turned 29, and had the best birthday ever. Pampering, a hotel suite, a nice dinner, and ooooooooooooh yeah, a nice ring too.

September: Sims 2 came out. Finally!!! We went to Alcatraz for the first time, which was really cold and moist. I also felt my first earthquake, ableit, tiny in the grand scheme of earthquakes, it was still an earthquake.

October: RED SOX WIN THE WORLD SERIES!!! I never thought I’d see that in my lifetime, and the comeback was the best ever. The meester and I started hitting the comedy clubs. Forgot how much I loved seeing live comics. Gas prices hit the roof, which really made my 4 mile commute a bitch. Surgery left me feeling like someone broke my neck.

November: I almost forgot to vote. Thankfully, everyone in the free world reminded me. I decided my cell phone needed a good wash on permanent press. I came home from a hard day of shopping to find a trail of rose petals to the bedroom (don’t worry, he got some for that). Went to Oregon for Thanksgiving and made a pact with the meester that 6 hours is the maximum amount of time we will spend driving to go anywhere.

December: Geared up for my first Christmas with the meester. Finished shopping by December 2nd. We also got our first family picture done. Cheese style. I hate San Francisco international airport. We managed to kill our very first tree. We still don’t know what happened. Christmas this year was nothing short of spectacular.

So that’s it in a nutshell. Pretty exciting action packed year. I went in with no expectations of 04, and I think it served me well. I should probably go in with that same mind frame of 05. Course, I hope it only gets better from here.

It seems like you had an awesome year and I am sure that things can only get better for you!!!

The Meeeeester December 28, 2004 at 3:15 pm

It has been a truly spectacular year, baby. Can’t wait to see what this year holds for you, me and the G.

Melissa December 28, 2004 at 3:19 pm

Wait…..not that things were bad… had a great year……..things don’t necessarily need to be better but why wouldn’t they be……….errrrr……I guess I’ll shut up….you know what I mean

You forgot about laughing hysterically at drive-bys in golf carts. That’s sadly probably the highlight of my year thus far. :(

I’m totally trying to do one of these, but I’ve only gotten through March. I’m reading this stuff, and then I start meandering around, following links, and before I know it, I’ve wasted 20 minutes. hee. It’s another reason it takes me a full day to clean my office. I like to reminisce. :)

2005 is going to RULE. I have decreed it. ;)

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since we’ve seen each other now! Aaaack! When you’re bored, remind me to give you the sequel to “that night” which shall never be forgotten… ;-)

Can’t wait to see how your 2005 develops!

Overall, I would judge that you’ve had one heck of a good year. Here’s hoping 2005 is at least as good. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

*kiss* (but a respectful friend-kiss, I’m not trying to horn in on the Meeeeeester’s territory or anything)

Fairly new to your blog but just wanted to say that it sounds like you had an amazing year. And that ring for your birthday? Maybe I should make my boyfriend read that. teeeheee
