Things that happened this year:
- Still married. If you know me, you know that’s worth noting at the top of any year-end list.
- Join the ranks of hipsters everywhere and bought an iPhone to match my 160GB iPod. Also, swore to consider whether future purchases put me in league with hipsters everywhere before buying.
- No major health scares; outside of one migraine, and the usual dental fun, my brutally stupid lifestyle kept my immune system heathily in practice.
- Job changes (see also: 2007, 2006, 2005…) included a new position in corporate America, returning to working with my favorite people of all, computers; and a move backward, from bartending at Bailey’s (RIP) to barbacking at the Barking Kudu. Come see me, point and stare.
- Nothing major in the published creative efforts column this year. The Exhibit(s) chug along as usual, and one of my old songs is background music in a film, and I had a few articles in Birmingham Weekly. I’m going to attribute this to my nighttime hours being spent working instead of sitting in front of a medium.
- Finally got back out of town to see my whole family for Christmas. The niece is scary cute and even scarier smart; the nephew is off to a good start, as well.
- Sold my first domain! Utterly unexpected and unsolicited, insomniactive.com sold for way more than I ever would have thought. Thus, the move after 5 years to here, and the purchase and non-implementation (as yet) of www.insomniactivity.com.
- Started back into the soccer arena last winter, and played through the year. It feels good to be back, especially when it hurts. I’m also remembering how much felt natural, and how much I needed to work on basic skills. Non-athletes probably shouldn’t rediscovered sports as they approach 40.
Share the joy
