New Year’s Post

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 Day.

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 you later.
