Seems I did  all my years' tally and self-evaluation a few months ago for the Jewish New Year, I think, but since I don't want to miss another opportunity for self-castigation and indulgence, what the hey.

Here's that meme thing people do on LJ where you pick the first lines of every first months entry for the year.

2007 You Went By So Fast!

January


I didn't even drink on New Year's and I feel incredibly hung-over.

February


What would make the sky look foggy at ten o clock at night in areas with no street lights?

March


Interesting that what I was reading this year (Mean Girls, Odd Girl Out) happened before I got shishkabbobed by the phenomenon myself in fandom and that I didn't recognize it.

April


I can type very well with one hand--bc of all the times my clutzy self has burned fingers cooking and ...and I  used to type while nursing my babies in the sling.

May


Orange juice and little pills. A little self-criticism. Explaining to Sophie why roaches fly into your hair. Read my email and check the manga forums and Arts & Letters Daily. How I always start my day.  Then the sinking step by step into laundry, laundry, tons of laundry.

June


Ugh. Migraine. I'd been going for a spell there without one--maybe more than a month.

July


My son needs a professional mentor.

August


Why did I want to get off wellbutrin again? Hallucinations? Tremors? Forgetting stuff and not being able to put on my clothes?

September


I'm so suggestible!

October

[personal profile] laurabryannan continues to be my feminist hero!

November


Why am I even awake?

December


I have a to-do list that is SCARY LONG.



Okay, that all sounded depressing. Short answers to a couple of the common meme questions:

1.What did you do in 2007 that you didn't do before in your life?

Considered divorce, worked at a deli, spilled cow blood on myself, lost my temper and yelled at some idiot on the internet, had psychotropic drug induced hallucinations of roaches, lost a good bit of memory but recovered it again when I got off wellbutrin, USED PENTOOL AT LAST, wrote a yaoi romance called "Necrophilia."

2. Did anyone close to you die?

No. My grandmother died the same month as a couple of my LJ friends lost grandparents and I was stunned by how appropriately upset these friends were.

3. Did you fall in love in 2007?

Oh yes. I feel in newly in love all the time. Must be my freaky nervous system. I fell in love with family members, cats, life in general, choral music, the RenIshi pairing, the IshiHime pairing again, a few new internet friends (just yesterday, though, I fell in love with [personal profile] quaedam  again because she said something awfully sweet to me), and I developed a FANCY for gummy bears that approaches that heightened state of longing and appreciation one can only call love.

4. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2007?

Keeping my feet warm. Not going out in public with buttons unbuttoned on my top.

5. What political issue stirred you the most?

As usual, post-Katrina hurricane stuffs. Local angst.

6. What do you wish you'd done less of?

Crying.

7. What do you wish you'd done more of?


Hebrew with Asher.
