Driv. Vel.

I so should be going to bed. Seriously. But instead I'm doing my usual wintertime-stay-up-late-and-get-up-at-sunrise. (which is 8:00! How depressing! I keep reading optimistic stuff about how now we're past the winter solstice and will be steadily gaining daylight from here on out. And I have to say that, honestly? I never thought of it that way. Never occurred to me. I can only think of the fact that the winter solstice is technically the beginning of winter. Did I mention that my newyearsresolutionhaha is "be more optimistic"? Oops, there goes that.) I think staying up late is some sort of winter survival mechanism. I don't do it nearly so much the rest of the year. The rest of the year I pop out of bed earlyish and work all day and go to bed happily tired, but in the winter I seem to like to stay up late and read by the fire and who wants to get up before the sun, anway?

Oh... where was I going. Oh yeah. I my almost-one-year of blogging, I have not posted a single Meme. And I've been trying to come up with an inspirational, or at least sincere, post about the ending of an old year and the beginning of a new one, but I can't because I'm so durned pessimistic about the coming year,what with a looming economic depression and all. "I'm trying to just pray and trust God for our preservation" completely sums up my New Year's attitude.

So I'll bore you with a very UNinsprirational meme instead.

- Reaso​n to do this:​​​ do what? Oh, didn't I already cover that?

- Song:​​ Who We Are Instead

- Salad​ Dress​ing:​​​ homemade ranch with raw fresh ingredients

- Sushi​:​​​ Is fun once and a while. But, please, someone tell me why-- if you're supposed to put the whole roll in your mouth in one bite, why can't they make it in a size to fit in there? I mean, really, I have a big mouth, but it is not enjoyable to stuff the thing in there and then try to chew. I can't even taste it and that's the whole point, isn't it? And taking bites? Forget it. It just falls apart all over the place and makes me look like a dork. Gah. I'll like sushi better when they learn about a little thing called portion control.

- Ex'​​​s:​ live in Texas. Acutally not.

-​​​Year it is now: 2009, but if you look at any checks I've written, it's still 2008.

-​​​Yello​w:​​ in my kitchen! Also, goes well with red.

- Zoo anima​l:​​​ That's it? That's the end of this? A "zoo animal"? All that and then I'm supposed to pick an animal? Why bother... Hopefully, no one is still reading this because I can't believe how long it is and I can't figure out why I started it. I'm going to bed now. 12:09 and I'm over and out.
