Everyone reading this right now should go out and acquire a copy of Danny Elfman's solo album "So Lo".  I have been listening to it non-stop, especially "Gratitude" and "It Only Makes Me Laugh".  I worshipped him before; it has since increased in intensity.  I firmly believe that there is nothing that this man cannot do and cannot stress how awesome and fun this album is. 

More evidence of of his awesomeness, taken from Wiki: 

"After the release of Batman, Elfman reacted to comments in Keyboard Magazine wherein Micah Rubenstein conjectured that a rock musician like Elfman, not classically trained, probably didn't even write out the musical score to Batman. Speaking on behalf of "the many musicians, composers, and arrangers who lack formal education," Keyboard published an open letter by Elfman in March 1990. Elfman referred to Rubenstein's comments as a growing "musical elitism," stating he worked 12 to 14 hours a day, seven days a week, for a month and a half to write the Batman score, and calling Rubenstein a "dumb fuck" for supposing that Elfman didn't write down his scores: "...I actually wrote it down - I will not sit back passively and allow myself to be discredited for the work I did by an idiot who mistakenly thinks that I lazily hire people to do it for me, or that only a conservatory can produce a real film composer."[4] "

Fantastic. 

In other news, I had to take, Scooter, my 2000 Beetle, in for some diagnostics after the Engine/MIL light (or as I call it, the OMGWTFBBQ!light) went on Saturday and remained on.  So, my friendly V-Dub technician calls me up this morning and tells me that my air compressor is basically splitting in half, but that they can basically weld it back together to the tune of ~$300 rather than me buying a totally new part to the tune of ~$700+.  Yeah, I'll take what's behind Door #1 plzkthnx.  Oh well.  For an 8 year old car, I've been really proud of his performance thus far.  

I loved having Monday off to recharge.  I could honestly use ONE more day of sleep but am thankful for having the three day weekend anyway.  It gave me a chance to find some badly needed perspective, for which I am doubly thankful.

Love to all. Mwah!

P.S. For my wrasslin' fans who happened to catch RAW last night.  I love him dearly, but poor Shawn cannot WOOOO to save his life.

Don't you hate it when you're at work, starting to feel feverish, mildly nauseous, and just crappy in general, but the illness hasn't actually manifested enough for it to be worth an excuse to your boss? 

It also doesn't help that said boss has been working all month with a sinus infection without complaining. 

Oy.  Thank the Maker its Impact Thursday!

"...Good night, sweet prince,
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!"

I shall always remember you this way, sweet Prince.

I'll remember a time when a much younger version of myself fell head over heels in love with a ruggedly handsome Celtic Prince, destined to lead his people.  I would grow to admire you as you took on fun roles like A Knights Tale and 10 Things I Hate about You and then love you even more as Ennis Del Mar and eventually, the Joker.  It wasn't easy to try to sway my allegiance to Jack Nicholson, but you could have pulled it off.

I didn't know you.  Maybe its inappropriate for me to mourn.  Yet, you were young and full of life and should have had many more years on this earth.  I think that is worth mourning that someone only 2 years my senior left this earth so young for any reason.  I choose to remember you this way. 

"I know your life on earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain
You weren't afraid to face the devil
You were no stranger to the rain

Go rest high on that mountain
Son, you work on earth is done
Go to heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and Son"
~Vince Gill: Go rest High on That Mountain

First of all, I hope all of my US friends had a delightful Thanksgiving; I'm very thankful for each and every one of you reading this right now and hope that you had wonderful times with your friends and family.  For all of my overseas friends, I just hope that you had a fantastic day! =^)

I've been so terribly busy of late.  Lots of good social times with friends and family.  I'm glad that I have today just to relax and get my room in order, since, to quote Egon, "it looks like a demilitarized zone".   I apologize if I've been bad at commenting recently; I hope to catch up on comments soon.

Next, I wanted to wish  [profile] acebaretta the best birthday possible!  I hope you had a fantastic day yesterday.  Love you lots, buddy.

[personal profile] jadeblood: I saw this and thought that you might die of squee: http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=GG10086&mode=retail&picture=out

[personal profile] penumbren? I hate you for introducing me to this sexy store. ;^D

I also entered myself into a Sylar fic challenge.  I got the prompt back, and I'm not terribly sure what to do with it of late.  I need to sit down and make some notes.  I think I have a bit of time, but at the same time, its my first deadlined challenge that was longer than an haiku challenge and its somewhat intimidating! =^X 

Also, does anyone have any good screenshots or pics of Jericho's return? I've been trying to save the ones off of WWE.com but for some reason, its not working for me.

More later, me lovelies.  *hugs the flist*

Do you ever have those days when you really want to post about something but really don't have a whole lot to report?

Yeah, today is one of those days.   My iPod started working and after several days of puttering with it, it ACTUALLY synched up to iTunes!! Trust me, this is a first.  I figured that I should go ahead and restore it.  There was also a software update for iPod so I was hoping that this might fix Poddy's problem.  Unfortunately, the update/restore never completed.  It froze up and when I tried to resync, got the same problems.  DRAT!!

Well, its progress anyway.

In other news, some ideas are buzzing about in my  head about a Sylar redemption fic.  I may post notes about it on here later.

Last night I played poker until late in the evening and had some good hands.  My best hand was a full house; three Kings and 2 nines! Hotness.

Ummm, I'm sure I'll have something more significant to say later but for now, hugs and kisses!
phoenixastraea: (Sev&Lily)

Well, I haven't had too much to post about of late,  since work has been crazy boring.  I suppose that's not necessarily a bad thing, considering it allows me to engage in a improv'd Text-based Adventure via Gchat with my buddy Ben. 

Excerpts: 

Ben: find a way to defend yourself.
me: Hit souls with oars.
Ben: no effect.
Me: Ask lesbian for help.
 Ben:lesbian has found a new life partner, francesca de rimini.
no help to be given.
me: Oh give me a friggen break.
Look around.
Ben: you have nothing in the boat but your oars and your inventory (so: jewel. holy water. mirror. rubber chicken. rapier.).
me: Use rubber chicken.
Ben: ok.
little did you know that charon inspired fear with his terrible sense of humor.  Confusing you, wearing your holocaust cloak, for charon, the souls take the chicken and flee
me: laughs
Ben: do you wish to proceed across the styx or head back to the shore you departed?
me: Proceed across.


So, yes, that's my day so far.  =^) So far I've defeated Cerberus, and am now face to face with Satan.  Good times. 

 


Hmmm, I hope to do a picspam posting soon of me, my new katana, my Sephy drawings, and anything else of note.  Any pictures of me or my life that you all want to see (keep it PG-13 rated please, peoples! ;^))?  Request away and I'll try to oblige!

I'm also starting to think about what to do for Halloween.  It'll be geeky, to be sure.  I thought this morning about going as a Slytherin student (hell, the dark hair and the pale skin practically sorts me there anyway! ;^).  There's always something from anime, Marvel, DC, or other geekdom.  Suggestions, oh my sexy cosplayer friends?
phoenixastraea: (Default)
It never fails to amaze me that I can spend 2 hours at a DMV/MVA/what you will for a new license that only takes 2 minutes to make.   At least the MVA that I went to today wasn't as much like Mos Eisley as the other MVA in Maryland.  While this place wasn't a "hive of scum and villainy", I was thankful for my iPod and my book on Baudelaire by Sartre to help me drown out the squeals of hyper kids and the stank of unwashed bodies.  While I did get my license transferred over from VA (I'm mourning the loss of my lovely VA license; I'll never have a better picture!), I've got to go back after my lienholder sends my title to the MVA.  Only then can I get my new title, registration, and tags. 

*sigh* I have no idea why these places can't make it easier, but I suppose they are trying to improve things with all the e-services they're starting to offer.  On the bright side, the employees there were a ton nicer and more competent than I've dealt with in the past.  Couple that with the fact that its 15 minutes away from home and they've got a repeat client.

Lameness #1: I just saw the commercial for "Invasion".  Yet another cheap knock-off of an excellent 70's horror flick.  Seriously, no one can beat Donald Sutherland, Karen Allen, and my beloved Leonard Nimoy in that flick.  Lame. 

Lameness #2: Any commercial for Restless Legs Syndrome.  Seriously, I just saw them list "Creepy crawlies", "pins and needles" and "urge to move" as legit symptoms and now they're hocking drugs for it.  Unbelievable.  I firmly agree with Alan Shore's diatribe about America's tendency to "sell sickness".  Keep an eye out for a commercial for Mirapex and you'll know what I mean.  Apparently you're supposed to notify the doctor if you feel "an intense urge to gamble, or other sexual urges".  Fantastic! A drug that makes me want to have sex and gamble! Word up!

All lameness aside, I feel the surge in my blood that tells me autumn is coming.  I drive past my high school and I see the cheerleaders and football players gearing for the new season, the days are getting shorter, and the leaves are starting to turn and fall.  I love fall.  It would take pages and pages of posts for me to list all the reasons why I love fall, but its safe to say that I never feel more alive than in fall.  My wardrobe is also far superior for fall. ;^)  Maybe its the cool weather.  Maybe its the years and years of beautiful memories of the start of school ingrained into my mind.  Its ironic that a season that is usually characterized as the harbinger of winter, a season of decay, a descent into cold weather and darker days can be the herald of so many beginnings. 

I love autumn.  I can feel it coming too. Des violons de l'automne.



Snape loves autumn too! =^)

Thank You.

Firstly, I have this immense need to tell you all how much I love you guys.

No, I'm not drunk, under the influence, or anything. I just went outside tonight, played with the barn cats, had a fantastic conversation with my dear friend, Chris, then looked up at the stars, saw my first bat or two of the season, and thought of how damn thankful I am to have you all in my life.

Thank you so much, all of you, for being so wonderful. I'm so blessed to call you 'Friend'.

Secondly, this is a powerful video from Postsecret. Definitely worth the watch for this weeks secrets.



Thirdly, I still love Transformers. May find a way to see it this coming weekend at the cheapseats.
phoenixastraea: (Colonel Brandon)
My revelation for today will be shocking to some of you.  Shocking that its taken me this. Damn. Long. to recognize the awesomeness of this, even after repeated instruction.

Podcasts.

I have discovered podcasts.  HP centered ones for now (art thou surpris-zed?) but man.  AWEsomeness.  *dramatic sounds of the heavenly choir to punctuate my revelation*

Speaking of HP, for those of you who are putting up with my constant fandomness, I both applaud and thank you.  The truth of the matter is, life is really quite tough right now, and the three F's (family, friendship, and fandom) are all that's getting me though the days.  My grandmother's health hasn't been good at all, my beloved cat passed away last week, and I've generally been feeling quite thoroughly depressed.  You all, my family, and my beloved Snape (and HP fandom in general) is getting me through each slogging, 105 degree heat day with some semblance of sanity.  Usually when things like this happen, I bury myself so deep in fandom that I'm sure it gets obsessive and quite possibly obnoxious.  On the other hand, this is my journal so maybe I shouldn't be apologetic for what I post here; yet, I am because you all are so lovely.  So for those of you who are putting up with me/sticking with me, thank you.  You help keep me going when I feel like I'm about to fall apart.

SO, without further ado...a very sexy Thursday Thirteen!

phoenixastraea: (Leo by morning)
  1. I'm entirely too amused by the Harry Potter Spellcasting application on facebook.  I've already tripped someone, used Levicorpus, and made someone burp slugs.  *evil chuckle* Wait...does that make me James Potter?!
  2. Spent some money at Borders today.  Purchases include the TMNT CGI movie (WOOT!), Gryffindor and Slytherin magnets (I know I'm a dork.  Hush.), and the Border's exclusive Snape figure (yes, pathetic, obsessive fangirl right here *points to self*).  I love retail therapy.  Borders was also having a book drive so I also bought HP7 for them to give to someone in need.  Made me feel really good.  I have an extra copy of HP7 at home that I may also donate tomorrow.
  3. I also purchased Snapes wand from the Noble Collection, one of my favorite collectors sites.  Pics forthcoming.
  4. Speaking of Snape, I LOVE my new journal layout.  I had been in the market, as it were, for a new layout and this one suits me to a T.  *sighs as she looks at her refurbished journal*
  5. I was gratified to see a very well-written letter that will be "signed" and sent to LJ regarding the recent baninations etc.  It was more of an appeal for communication rather than a flame war seeking retribution for bannings or even debating the nature of the art in question.  If anything will get their attention, I think this might.  I'll post it once it gets edited.
  6. A meme!!  Taken from [profile] faerie_lissa416

How many times has someone on your friends list posted about something and you were really confused, but you didn't want to ask because you knew you SHOULD know?

How many times have you felt 'guilty' asking an LJ friend a question that should be 'obvious'?

Well, here's your chance.

If you've missed a few things, missed an entry and are confused, ask me anything. Even something EXTREMELY basic, like where I live! I'm not allowed to get even slightly irritated at any of the questions - we've all missed things before. Even if there are things you don't think you've missed, but you're just curious about, go ahead and ask. I'll answer any question...or questions, if you're curious about more than one thing or are new to my flist.

phoenixastraea: (My Prince...)
At 5am this morning, my beloved Puff passed away in my arms.  I don't think it was too painful, but she was a fighter to the last, striving for each and every breath.  I never knew a cat that so loved life as she did. 

I love you, baby girl.  My Puffbear.  Puffernut.  Puffball.  Puff-puff.  As I type this through my tears, I hope you're happy on the other side.  I miss you already and dedicate this little poem to you.  Its more accepting than I feel right now, but I thank God that you died peacefully in my arms rather than in a vets office.  You loved the creature comforts of home so much...

Rest in Peace, baby.  We had a great 20 years, didn't we...I'm glad you saw your 20th birthday.

Crossing the Bar, Tennyson

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea.

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home!

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

For though from out our bourn of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.
phoenixastraea: (Leo by morning)
Hallo, my dear ones!

Now that Harry Potter 7 has been read, I feel safe coming back to the internets.  It looks like my instincts to not belong to or visit any HP communities on LJ was a smart one; upon later perusal, I kept finding entries in big bold flashing text that warned of trolls coming on and spoiling things for anyone who happened to have said communities on their flist.  After all my years on this great Intarweb of ours, and I'm still amazed at the levels of douchebaggery to which people will stoop.  At any rate, I found it...to be one of the greatest works of art of our time.  A true masterpiece perfectly weaving plot and emotion, with Rowling conducting both elements as if it were the greatest orchestra on the face of the earth.  I've been interested to check out various reviews on my flist and have enjoyed seeing the quibbles that people have, most of which center on the somewhat-throw away nature of the Epilogue.  Perhaps I am not the most acerbic critic in the world, but it is truly difficult for me to find fault with this book.  I'll probably collect my thoughts sometime this week or weekend and throw them down in here somewhere, but right now, I think I'll just bask in the glory for a while.

In other news, work has been insane.  I haven't really had the time to come on here and play because the pace of my workplace in summer could rival that of NASCAR.  It usually leaves me worn out and exhausted by the time I come home, so I've mostly been resting and keeping fairly unplugged.  I think I'm sufficiently recharged though...

I've also had to take a break from wrestling for a bit.  I suppose I thought I was over all the stuff that happened with Benoit...but...its been harder for me to come back than I thought I would.  Perhaps I feel now that my trust is truly shaken, and its hard for me to enjoy it knowing what I know.  Perhaps its just the fact that the writing/booking for all wrestling across the board seems limp and uninspired.  I still love it, though, and will probably be back to watching regularly around Summerslam for a certain someone's return. 

I'm sure I'll have more to say later.  Until then, its time to listen to Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter!
phoenixastraea: (Kirk is Teh Awesome!)
So, I know that most of you will have a good laugh at my expense for being SO late to jump on this bandwagon but I am now the proud owner of an iPod, thanks to my dear [profile] acebaretta .  

Why didn't you people TELL me these things were so much fun?!

It's a 4th Gen iPod, so I can't watch House or Heroes or Homestar Runner on it but its doing JUST fine with my music and I'm really getting quite addicted to getting every last one of my CDs stored on this lil thing.  I'll probably never buy another CD again and the ones I do have will get boxed up and stored so I can actually free up some space. 

I was also gratified to find two of my data disks that contained all the files I downloaded from the glory days of free Napster and rampant piracy back in my undergrad days.  Most of those songs I had already burned to disk...EXCEPT for my collection of WWE wavs, including promos from Edge and Christian and the Rock.  Oh sweet sassy mollassy, I'm so happy to find these things, especially my 5 Second Poses from Edge/Christian.  "Kickin' it Joe-C Style" is especially choice.  I'll see what I can do to get a few of those uploaded for your listening pleasure in the future. 

*does a happy dance*

Now, all I need in order to complete my iPod ensemble is a car charger and a FM transmitter, so my super kick-ass stereo system will not go defunct with my lack of CDs. 

In other news, I have been kicked out of my bathroom so that it can get totally repainted.  Cool. 

Oh, and for anyone who is a Live fan, I'm rocking out to Mental Jewelry, which I would argue is up there with Throwing Copper in excellence. 
phoenixastraea: (Leo.  Move over Bret Hart.)
Thirteen Things that I Want to do for Myself
1. Stifle my Guilt Complex - Truly, this is what I would consider a flaw that is crippling. I refuse to let it further control my life.
2. Go into Relationships not stressed or even thinking about Marriage - I know I'm closing in on 30. I refuse to let this sabotage any potential relationships because I go into relationships with a too defined sense of purpose...and lose any sense of fun, spontaneity, or ease because I'm too worried about an end goal/result.
3. Working Out - It just needs to happen. I have long days at work and I know this would ease my stress levels.
4. Spend More Time Outside - Again, I spend 8+ hours in an office in a high rise building. I also spend over 2 hours either in a car or underground in the metro. I need more light and air in my day.
5. Watch Rome - Seriously, everyone tells me this is an awesome series. I love Ancient History so I'm looking forward to it.
6. Watch Heroes - Again, for someone who loves comic books as much as I do, it's really a sin that I haven't been able to watch this show (its on at the same time as RAW). I know, I know. I'm ashamed.
7. Visit my friends who live in other States - I miss them. I have the ability to travel and make similar arrangements at work. Nothings stopping me.
8. Travel - Maybe I should plan a road trip or a European Trip. Damn, I miss Europe.
9. Write - I really need to just find some quiet time and keep writing. Essays. Fiction. Poetry. It's something that I love and that I need to make time for in my life.
10. Watch my Wrestling DVDs - Seriously, I keep throwing my money at Vince McMahon, Dixie Carter, and Gabe Sapolsky and haven't gotten through my DVDs yet! Maybe this weekend...
11. Learn to play Chess better - I love the game, but quite frankly, I suck. Time to improve.
12. Learn Tai Chi - I think doing it after I wake up and before I go to sleep will help my stress levels. If only the internets would release their hold on me...;^)
13. Befriend our Newest Stray Cat at the Barn - We have four who are our barn cats and have recently acquired a fifth, who has clearly been put through the ringer of Life and is painfully shy. I hope to befriend him or her before the year is out. It may be a tall order, but Dorsal needs some lovin' too!
phoenixastraea: (Dream Come True)
Ok, so it's time for the obligatory RL posting! 

I'm actually sitting outside on this beautiful spring-like day with my new HP laptop.  It's really really lovely...I pretty much fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.  Gorgeous design, great key layout, lots of good stuff.  I just finished transferring all my internet settings etc over from my old compy (thank you, Windows Vista!) and I'm just getting used to the new keyboard.  The keys are really springy so its gong to take some time before I break them in.  Got all my videos, pics, and docs moved over so I'm in like Flynn.

In other news, I've got a board faction of sorts going on at Wrestlecrap; 4 other friends and myself have become the new Kliq, with me filling in as HBK.  It's quite hilarious and we do it all in kayfabe...some sort of awesome midway point between role play and RL; Monday I think we're gonna start up a DX/NWO BBQ thread.  So yeah, much excellence there and much mirth! Also much time wasting...=^)  The five of us might also meet up in NY for the Rumble at MSG...for the Kliq Curtain Call take 2! So much potential awesomeness...

Right now I just finished reading O'Brian's Master and Commander and I absolutely love it.  Oh man, now all I have to do is read the other 20 books...

Ummm, more later, I'm sure.

*mwah*
phoenixastraea: (Grasp Me...)
Saw the 300 last night.  Jesus Tapdancing Christ that was a great movie.  Spectacular even.  Especially the bodies....dear LORD!

In other news, I nearly lost one of my horses this morning.  I woke up to my grandmother yelling that Robbie was laying down in the field and wouldn't get up.  He was laying down in the middle of the field, groaning.  After I made sure that nothing was broken, I basically sat there and held his head in my lap until he felt good enough to stand.  I spent 2 hours with him, walking him around, grooming/comforting him before the fool vet finally decided to get here.  That in itself took three hours.   So far, he looks like he's in the clear but I'm just about to head back down and see how he is. 

*sigh*

So, being a technical writer for a Government subcontractor allows me to pore over countless pages filled with lots and lots of uppercase letters, seemingly strung together with very little rhyme or reason.  In any given day, I may type the following in an email:

"I was looking over the RFI for IMCS II and think that the PP quals that we should use would include RSAF, SPPN, AETC, KAFB, IBDSS, and CETS.  I'll get the PPQs to the POCs by COB today. "

Yes, ladies and jellyspoons, I actually wrote that to someone today and whats more, they understood every 'word'. 

So, that being said, I started thinking of other acronyms that I've come across.  My favorite has to be from the [profile] ghostriderfans community ([pimp]which everyone should join!![/pimp]) where [personal profile] jadeblood and [profile] kazuldragonfyre came up with an excellent acronym for Sam Elliot's character: GOPCGR which stands for


Yeah, flippin awesome I say! 

Other excellent acronyms come from these uberawesome fic ratings by [personal profile] empressive:

Ratings for Content:
NLTOYM - Not Likely To Offend Your Mother. This means the story is pretty tame, most likely a PG-13ish rating.
HSFB - Holy Smut-Fic, Batman! Another rating for extreme porn in a story.
 
Ratings for Oddness:
FS - Fucking Strange
RFS- Really Fucking Strange
RVFS- Really Very Fucking Strange
WTF- What The Fuck
 
Ratings for Fluff:
FF- Fucking Fluffy
FLS- Fluffy Like Sheep
 
Other Ratings:
HFS- Holy Fucking Sad
MBJC- Makes Baby Jesus Cry
YGIAGAM-- Your Guess Is As Good As Mine

LOL I have to say HSFB and MBJC are too gold for words.  I wanna write fic just so that I can use those ratings.

In other random news, I got my DX DVD/T shirt combo today along with my RVD DVD (MORE ACRONYMS!!!!11 Even HHHBK!) and the DX playing cards, which are so awesome I can't even stand it.   For anyone who's watched the DX DVD, is the "Stan" skit in there?  I didn't see it listed...
phoenixastraea: (Damn it feels good....)
...you have your own IMDB entry...

Behold, my lovies: I give you Casey Jones, one of my best friends from high school and beyond. 

Rock the fuck ON!

If you want to hear/read more about this Man of (over) a Hundred Voices, visit his main websites at CaseyTones.com and his blog, which is the Mental Flotsam and Jetsam link on my right sidebar there. 

Casey, I'm so damn proud of you.  Has anyone told you today that you rule?

Unfortunately, this has to be a quick post because I have so much to do today. 

I want to wish everyone of you, whether you're abroad and have already celebrated New Years or will be celebrating it in America with me tonight, a wonderful, safe, thrilling and Happy New Years.!

Each and every one of you is special to me.  Recently I haven't been online as much because I've been so busy, but I've loved your comments and read your journal entries.  If I could, Id get all of you together and we'd party hardy all night!  As it is, I feel really blessed and thrilled that I'll be spending it with my best friends here in DC tonight. 

If you drink, be safe and have fun.  I'll see you all in the New Year! 

Love, Hugs and Kisses,

Phoenix Astraea aka Hbomb aka Heather
phoenixastraea: (Faith...)
Whew.  I have the internet back.  I cannot believe that this brings me as much relief as it does.  Its really amazing how a few pieces of hardware and some wiring could bring so much joy...and so much frustration.  The poor technician had been working here since 8am to get this up and running.  I know his boss is getting a letter from me about how awesome he is.

Until then, I'm back after nearly 2 weeks without internet access at home.  Whew.

In other news, I really really need to get my ass looking for a new job.  There are definitely people at work that I will miss like crazy...but I just can't stay there.  Money and the stress of starting a career has made me complacent...and that's no way to go through life.  It's time to find out what I can do, who I really am, and what I stand for.

Onward to the New Year.   Drink up, me hearties, yo ho....
