sick, sick, sick

Most of you seem to be only too happy that 2007 is but a memory, but I actually had a pretty good year. However, if the first two days of 2008 are any indication, this year will not be so good.

It started at four am on New Year's Eve, as I in vain tried to sleep while my neighbors cranked their karaoke machine up to the highest setting. Now, I like to think I'm a pretty tolerant neighbor, and had it just been music I wouldn't have minded, but being tortured with drunken and inept singers at four am is just not fun.

Then on New Year's Day I wake up with a cold. This cold stayed with me throughout all of yesterday and today, today with the added bonus of a pounding headache!

2008 can start getting better any minute now. *taps foot impatiently*

My one and only resolution this year is to read more. I'm going to try to read 50 books, but that's not the resolution - reading is. Last year my resolution wasn't to watch 100 movies, it was learning to like movies again (which I think I did).

I've seen people posting their books/movies/tv show lists public, but I've privated mine, and I'll make it public at the end of the year, just like last year. Unless people are wildly curious about what I'm up to?

The whole "watch 500 episodes" thing is kind of laughable to me, though, because I watched 83 full seasons of shows, and if I estimated an average of 18 episodes per season, that's still almost 1500 episodes in one year. In other words, I won't be counting episodes. I'm not sure the entry wouldn't max out on characters before the six-month mark.

I spent part of New Year's Eve putting my DVDs - which had been scattered all over my apartment - in order (to get a fresh start for the new year). Then I took pictures, because I'm thinking if I ever have to put in an insurance claim for all these DVDs, no one's going to believe me if I don't have proof.

Hence, EVIDENCE. Totally utlilitarian, so no prettying up of images. )
