events of 2004...

so i couldn't even stay away for 24 hours. i need help. seriously.

(before i start this, i just want to say, i watched the first 5 episodes of desperate housewives last night. i'm hooked.)

so, here are some events of MY year. because, we all know that MY blog is all about ME. because in my world, i'm the fucking queen. hell yes.

january:
*we got monkey. bought her with jules and mel (not of mega-sized fame). poor baby fit in the palm of my hand. she was twitching in the heat (yeah, for some reason, it was about 90 degrees that one weekend in jan) and we thought she would die. we had no idea how hearty that little bunny was. she's fucking huge now.
*turned 27. wasn't as bad as when i turned 25 and went through my early mid-life crisis. woohoo! can't wait to turn 40. that'll be fun for steve.

february:
*my mom turned 55, my dad turned 61. i always think of them being in their late 30s, early 40s. i can't help it.

march:
*went to tahiti for steve's 35th birthday. it's fucking paradise. it's beeeeyoootiful. we stayed mainly on the island of moorea. there's a coral reef that protects the island about a mile out from the shore, so the water is so, so still. and very buoyant. even i could swim. (i don't know how to swim... especially not in a pool.) and the water's warm. so warm that except for the wetness, you don't know when you're stepping into the water. we went to the caribbean for our honeymoon and tahiti blows that place away...
*cousin's baby, sophia, turned 1. i can't believe it came so fast.

april:
*went to PA to visit steve's grandpa and other family for easter.
*saw morrissey

may:
*coachella. finally saw radiohead. it was fucking amazing.

june:
*brother turned 16, sister turned 17. (please, for the love of god, don't make comments about my sister almost being 18... or anything to that effect. please. i'm begging. you pervs.)
*sandra collins and dj icey at spundae. steve almost got into his first fight defending my honor. what an asshole that guy at the club was.

july:
*trip up to napa. to visit friends and wineries. mmm. silver oak, cakebread, grgich, oh my!
*comic-con. saw jude law... JUUUUUDE!
*started my blog. surprisingly, i haven't stopped blogging. i do that a lot. start things and don't finish. i'm lame that way. god, i love the blogger community. :D
*sarah mclachlan at the anaheim pond
*james lavelle at the spider club

august:
*concert at the hollywood bowl
*trip to napa for an old jr. high school friend's wedding. her name is abigail. his name is brad. i like to call them brabigail. but not to their faces.

september:
*a friend of mine married a jackass loser... but we ended up going to seattle and vancouver and having a fabulous time, so i think that cancels each other out. hehe.
*beastie boys at LBC

october:
*oktoberfest.
*new orleans. and voodoo fest. way too much drinking. wait, what am i talking about? i have never put those 4 words together... "way too much drinking" pffff.
*monster massive on halloween.

november:
*halo 2 finally came out.
*met mike and nina.
*our 2 year anniversary.
*new zealand and australia.

december:
*xmas with the folks

seriously, i think that this year was highlighted by the blog. i never would've met so many cool people otherwise... so, thanks to everyone who's stopped by! :)

looking forward to everyone's blogs in 2005 :)

Happy New Year to you, Grace!

What a fun post. Now, see, you REALLY could've done something like this for a Christmas newsletter. I ♥ Christmas newsletters. :) Almost as much as I ♥ you. Heh heh heh.

Have a cocktail (I said ... well, you know what I said) for me, since I don't drink and you do. :P
