WOW.  I'm doing a shitty job of blogging this year, aren't I?

Well, it *IS* the holidays, after all.  Already. 

Let's recap what happened this year:

- I turned 41.  Whoopie-fuckin-doo.  I have also gotten carded more this year than last.  SWEET.
- I went back to work for Redfin.  So far, so good.   I have not wanted to cut a bitch yet.  This is good, people!
- We got another Boston terrier.  His name is Ed.  He's adorable, tiny, and a total attention whore.  Loki is starting to like him more - or tolerate him, rather.  It's a work in progress.
- I lost a good friend.  See previous post.  That was a sucky time and I hope he's in a better place.
- We went to Burningman again this year.  We had a foam dome, which was the most popular attraction on the playa and about 40+ people in our camp.  I've passed camp cruise director duties off to my friend Blacksmith as I am kinda done running stuff.  While this year was a lot of fun, it wasn't as epic as 2010.  This might mean we take 2012 off.  Plus, after 7 years...I kinda need a break. 
- We bought a loft in Capitol Hill.  Yes, we are smack in the middle of the hill...which is great - b/c I can walk to work.  I can pretty much walk/bike/bus anywhere.  I've given up using a car - it's freeing!  I'm lowering my carbon footprint!  Plus our dogs have Cal Anderson park as their backyard.  WIN!
- One of my best friends got married in October.  I got to wear a kick ass dress from Buddhaful and hang out w/ my amazing circle of friends.  It was probably the best and funnest wedding we'd ever been to.  Plus there was an awesome photo booth there - and there are some ridiculous photos floating around FB, I'm sure. 
- My tolerance for stupidity has gone down.  I seriously cannot deal with it.  DUMBASSES, if you are reading this, please do something about this.  I cannot be your friend if you continue to a) do stupid shit, and b) have bad grammar.  It's maddening. 
- Speaking of tolerance, I want more ink done.  :)
- Corey has started allowing the dogs to sleep in our bed vs their dog beds.  While they are v snuggly, it's also a snore symphony involving 2 dogs and a human man.  I wake up and giggle a lot.
- I started going to Barre3 classes...b/c time stops for no one, turns out.  Which means my ass is definitely becoming part of my hamstring and we can't allow that to happen, now can we?
- We're opening a restaurant on Capitol Hill.  By we, I mean, Corey, Chris & Laura (of Grim's, Auto Battery, Po Dog)...I will not be directly involved.  Corey is going to come home from work some nite and there are going to be 4 more Boston terriers running around, while I will be drunk on the couch, with the movie Bridesmaids on loop in the dvd player.  You know it!

That's it in a nutshell.  I mean, for the most part...those are the big things that happened!

That being said, have a wonderful solstice & a safe holiday season!  I leave you with this photo of our two bastard children:



  1. I pride myself in already knowing all but a couple of the highlights listed. That basically makes me and Corey soul mates. Or at least 2 of the high-fivin'-est high-fivin' white guys you know.

  2. well, you guys DO share the same name...
