Another year...

So, I'm feeling remarkably accomplished. I survived another year. However, it does give me pause to consider that only means I'm one year closer to my impending demise. It's there, there's no escaping it - but I do like to pretend that I'll live forever, perpetually young and only slightly wrinkled around the eyes. I mean "smile lined", not wrinkled.

I've been in an astoundingly cliche mood for the past week, "Oh, what's all for? What's the point? Is this it? Is it?"

Trust me, I've been a joy.

Quite suddenly, the clouds have parted and I'm feeling optimistic. I still don't have any answers, but as the kids say these days, "whatev."

They do still say that, don't they?

Let's read the cues: another year, one year closer to demise, getting more "smile-lined"...
I get it :-)

How many fish do you see, Aaron, that you use a plural?
я только одна рыба, милый Aарон
(or in the words of my ancestors,
Já jsem jenom jedna ryba)

Happy birthday, Aaron... I'm not going to be able to make your party, unfortunately -- and believe me, I love a spandex party; we had a Superhero Cotillion a couple years ago and it was maybe the best all-round party I've been to.

Maybe a beer or BBQ next week? You should come down to the 'hood...

We are Devo,
