This was Chooch, shortly after the ball dropped and he was encouraged for once to make noise.

We rang in the New Year at Jessy’s house with an array of high-caloric party food, wine slushies and a Mario Kart marathon on Wii which made me laugh to the point of tears so you know I had to have been drunk because typically watching other people play video games is not amusing for me. It was last night!

I’m not going to do some big lofty recap of 2010, but it was a pretty decent year. Sure, it had its trying moments but what’s life without challenges and petty drama, right?

From April on, everything slowly started to fall into place. I got a reprieve from the heavens in the form of a temporary position at a downtown law firm, which is now a permanent position, and have really come to appreciate it there. It’s nice not anticipating those eviction notices anymore. Sometimes I even order more than water with my porridge now BECAUSE I CAN.

But best of all, I reconnected with some old friends and made a couple new ones too. If 2011 features even half of a continuation to that theme, I think I’ll be OK.

Hope everyone had a safe and happy new year’s eve and is planning on watching the Winter Classic tonight (HINT HINT)! Go Pens!

  4. Aw, your pictures of Chooch always make me smile. I know I haven’t known you for that long, but I still can’t get over how quickly he seems to be growing right before my virtual eyes. I’m glad you had a fun New Year’s and I am so envious of the Mario Kart part. I haven’t played that game in YEARS. I kicked ass in that game. I remember all the boys on our block got mad because I beat them when they’d come over and play. Mwahaha.

    HEY, also. You need to give me some new music ideas to listen to! Who are your new loves lately? Let me know! I need to download (erm, I mean… purchase?) some new stuff.

    • So much good stuff!

      The new Bring Me the Horizon is fantastic, as is the new A Day To Remember.

      House of Heroes sort of has a slight Lorene Drive-feel to it.

      The Damned Things.
      Bear Hands
      The National
      Miss Derringer (I’m REALLY picky with girl-fronted bands, but this one is cool and some of the tracks have an old-timey feel to them)
      The new Underoath is really well-done

      Have you heard the new Hellogoodbye? They grew up a bit.

      And I’ve been listening to a lot of Drake, Bruno Mars, Trey Songz and Miguel, too lol. Keepin’ it real!

  5. God, he looks SO grown up!!!!

    Happy New Year, Erin!!
