As We Grind Down 2012

It's 10:34 here in Phoenix, so we haven't watched the ball drop yet.

We have a lot of food, a lot of drink, and general good feelings all around. There are still good-luck Black Eyes in the pot to eat here in a bit, and a little more rum. Kraken, by the way, is EXTREMELY good rum.

I have figured out my back-lit keyboard. I haven't found my activate key for Office.

I think I love this computer, Windows 8 aside.

I also think I'm a little drunk on rum.

As we wind down the arbitrary time allotment we call a "year," I shall offer this:

1) This year, I shall lose weight and get back into my clothes.
2) This year, I shall not buy inordinate amounts of junk: I will ask myself, "Do you really need this?" when confronted with a purchase, and shall endeavor to make myself think twice before pressing "buy."
3) This year, I shall continue striving to NOT be angry about pointless things which make me crazy, since I have learned that when I don't get angry, things are usually better, both around me and for me.

Not much to ask of myself, really. I know I can do it -- it just means stopping and thinking. I CAN do that! (Honest, I really can.)

I hope it's a happy year for everyone who reads me. Best and blessed to everyone!

Oh, and while it may be unpopular? I think Eleven is My Doctor.

Happy New Year!

I share all your resolutions, though I think #2 and #3 are the ones I really need to pay attention to.

Happy New Year!

Let us hope that 2013 turns out to be good luck for everyone! :)

We'll try and be good together. If I can stop buying things I don't really need, maybe I can actually save a little money this year.

Happy New Year!

I don't know how new it is, but I started seeing it only recently -- it's not as expensive as some, but a really smooth, powerful dark rum. Very, very good. I'm glad the nifty bottle and cool label inspired me to buy it. :)

thanks

I'll have to look for it. I do like dark rum and I can't get it in my area (they mostly have flavored rums at the local Krogers/Wal-mart. I bet the Athens Krogers would have it)

I also tried Captain Morgan's Black, likewise pretty awesome. (Both CM Black and Kraken are spiced.) Mom gave me a bottle of Bacardi Select that's probably better than both, but then, well, Bacardi.

nod nods, my Puerto Rican friends got me hooked on Bacardi's oro rum back in Medical School

I was reading on rums; according to some reviewer sites, Sailor Jerry is the best, but I've never tried that one.

Bacardi 8 is also extremely good.

see anything about Mount Gay. My father was utterly offended that I didn't like it. it's aged in jack daniels barrels and I think it tastes too much like whiskey

Nothing specific. I'd have to check again. I've seen it on the shelves.

I like some bourbon, but I prefer honey bourbon or really high-end whiskey (like Jack Single Barrel).

Mom likes bourbon. I'm not much of a whiskey drinker

Yeah, Mom's the bourbon drinker.

I think I shall have to steal your goals. ^_^

I like Eleven more and more. Three is still My Doctor... but Eleven is running an extremely close second, now. Then again, it's also true that my favorite doctor is whichever one I'm watching now. *eyes the pile of DVDs* and look, a couple of Seven serials are next in the queue.

I'm glad they seem worthy goals! :)

Yes, I have to admit it's been a while since I watched any Classic Who, so it's quite possible that Two can re-take his position as my "favorite," but right now, Eleven has the top spot in my heart. (But in a lot of ways, Eleven reminds me of Two, so maybe that has something to do with it.)

Getting fit is always good -- I'm at least marginal, although I'm not working out like I used to, and I'd like to get back into that if I could. I think a lot of it was the change in my gym (the new one is in the wrong direction and very crowded in the afternoon).

But yet -- the "do I REALLY need this?" question. I may allow myself the odd Woot shirt, but I have to stay away from ThinkGeek!
