Well, it's 2017. New year started, old year in the rearview mirror. The old year wasn't that horrid for me, minus the holiday near meltdown. Job has been good, and good for my coping skills. I wasn't nearly as social as usual this last year, nor have I done as much computer geekery as I used to. Still keeping up with the books and bad movies though.
As is traditional for New Years Day, I've spent today doing the things I
want to have happen more of in the new year. So bad movies, buying books,
petting cats (doing critter care for some friends that are out of town),
sleeping in, and computer geeking. Hoping it leads to good and nifty things.
Last night I went to a comic/geek convention, didn't do much besides some
shopping, hanging out with friends, and attempting to go to the 'parties'
in the evening. Figured out that I've gotten old. At one I wanted to
yell 'Turn that crap down', and at the VIP party I listened to a decent
cover band get mangled by lousy sound engineering. I cut out around 11,
to avoid the drunks in Dallas, but they were already out in force. Came
home, watched the year roll over. I did manage to find the only Cthulhu
stuff in the 'con. (A new dice game, that had cool tshirts, and a tshirt
vendor who had a HPL shirt that I didn't own), and a movie producer who
aims to recreate 50's B movies. So I had to get two. Was fun, but not
really my kind of 'con. Nothing on the tracks caught my attention, and
most everything was comics or Harry Potter. Oh well, not every convention
can be the HPLFF.
Really no plans for tonight, besides continuing with my superstition. I'm
off work tomorrow, and I'll spend most of it doing the chores I'm not doing
today (laundry, cleaning, store run) Then it's back to work. I don't have
any New Years resolutions, I'm weird and do resolutions around my Spawning
So that's about it. I may do a review of 2016, or I may not. All depends
on what I get done tomorrow, and how many tentacles I'm left with, along
with how much I want to dive into the last year. Might be better to just
aim forward. But on that note, hope it's a good year to everyone. Talk to
