i was up until 5:30 am this morning doing this thing they call "ringing in the new year." i rung it in and it wrung me out. i'm sleepy.
2010. a rather stupid number for a year, i think. it's too hard to say. what about when we tell our kids in the future about the past? "yeah, back in the summer of... ten..." it doesn't matter though. i have better things to get worked up about.
like snowflakes. who is the genius going around telling people that no two snowflakes are exactly alike?
how could they possibly know that? i know, crystals this and crystals that, and probability this and that. 10 to the power of 18 and nano crystals and water crystals etcetera, but still. i saw two, nay, THREE, identical snowflakes fall from the sky and light on my mitten the other day. i examined them and deemed them IDENTICAL. it doesn't matter though. i have better things to get worked up about.
like new year's resolutions. i spent all new year's eve trying to think of one. but really. anything i want to do better i'm already trying to do better. it wasn't like halfway through last spring i decided, "i want to be a better person, spend more time with my family, lose weight, and clip my toenails more often. starting nine months from today," and then went and got fat and wrote swear words on bathroom walls for fun because it wasn't january first yet.
i sound like a grouch but i'm not. just sleepy.
word to lith for being awesome.
