Mistress Marilyn's POV
No shit, Tempus Fugit!
Auld Acquaintances . . .

(Yes, that's the title of one of my favorite Colin Farrell slash adventures . . .)

So now it's time to revisit the highlights of the year, before I go wash my hair for the final time this year.

Here are some great things about 2005:

My Las Vegas birthday! It will be a highlight as long as I live, and I can't believe it actually exceeded the months of expectations.

Many new friends, both on line and off. Too numerous to name, which should always be the case, don't you think?

Blogging again, and really learning to participate at LJ instead of just sitting back. (Finally learning enough html code to make the thing work!)

Participating in (and actually completing) NaNoWriMo! (I just put the 'Let Your Imagination Rain' poster on my door at work.) Revisiting the recent past with my novel and finding it wonderful and hilarious (and worthy of writing about).

Being more social! I certainly had more fun in 2005. Where did all these boys suddenly come from? (Well, I guess you can't call them 'boys,' which is one of the problems . . .)

Andre Agassi making it to the final of the US Open, even if he didn't win. What a wonderful two weeks that was!

Changing my work schedule so I could get more time off. Time is more precious than money.

Paying off our credit card bills! (What a relief, and it's good to try to live within a budget.)

Some sad things:

Losing both Indy and April so suddenly. We still miss them so much.

The terrible tragedy and devastation in one of my favorite cities, New Orleans.

Losing Kelly, Adrian and Dani at work (and Andie, for that matter). I guess you can't be sheriff without a posse . . . (I am determined to work at keeping their friendship)

Seeing the festival lose so much money again, despite our best efforts.

Some things I resolve to do:

Run more and complete at least one half marathon in 2006.

Write more and complete my first real novel and finish my WIPs (instead of torturing all those people who have cared enough to read them).

Read more, because there's so much wonderful stuff being written and reading good writing helps improve your own.

Dance more. (Always dance more!)

Take better care of myself (with food and sleep and grooming).

Continue to blog, because it's good for my mental health.

Wonderful MM. I really enjoyed reading this.

I plan to visit Las Vegas next year, hopefully.

If you ever get the time throw me some pointers on the best things to do there.

I was thinking of staying at the Pink Flamingo.

We stayed at the Flamingo for my birthday, and it was very nice (and located right across from Caesar's Palace). They have a Margaritaville restaurant attached, and it's within walking distance to the Aladin shops (one of my favorite spots in Vegas).

I can offer lots of pointers if you ever decide to go! Hey, maybe you can join Charlie and me in Vegas sometime! We love meeting our on line friends there!

Dance more. (Always dance more!)

Life would be so much better, if we all cut a rug once in a while. Great resolution.

I agree. There should be many more chances to dance! I mean, I went to a New Year's party last night and there was great music, but no dancing! What's that about?

I'm so glad that you have such special memories to pin down on paper(or screen!)...On my part,nothing really special happened during 2005 but it was a good year overall!!!I think that what matters most is finding happiness and joy in little,meaningless things,right??
So I hope that 2006 brings us more of those stuff that make us smile,even if they mean nothing for the others!!!!
Love you a lot!!!!

I agree, 2006 needs to bring us much love and happiness, and I know it's there for us. We just need to find it.

Love you back!
