I have this idea that I write calendar-flipping diaries each year, but looking back at my posting history it turns out I haven't done it for the past few years.

Oh well.

Not to be confused with thrope stew, whose flavor can vary greatly depending on the particular variety of thrope.

Within, the usual autopsy of my WFC entries.

My father recently retired from being a museum curator. One of his retirement gifts from his (New York) colleagues was box seats to a Red Sox-Yankees game at Fenway last weekend. So my sister, D, and I joined him to watch the Sox beat the Yanks 10-4 (6 RBI for Ellsbury).

But this is another story.

It's been five years since the last time, but the slalom course that is Exit 9 off the New Jersey Turnpike to pick up Rte 1 South is still carved deep into my muscle memory.

Print Story Placeholder Title
By Kellnerin (Fri Dec 24, 2010 at 08:26:22 PM EST) (all tags)
I had a dream that I had a weird dream and wrote a diary about it, so I thought maybe I should write an actual diary.

This will not be as awesome as the dream diary would have been (the diary in the dream, not a diary about the actual dream), which featured the phrases, "In the first reality ..." and "in the second reality ..." (The main distinguishing feature of the two realities was that a spontaneous sidewalk picnic dessert changed, because of a difference in the relative accessibility of two restaurants between the two universes in, I think, the greater Las Vegas area.)

I need a project. Or maybe I don't -- it's not like I'm sitting on a ton of free time with nothing to do with it. I think what I mean is that I'm looking for something to make time for.

Now is the time of the WFC when we overanalyze our stories. Or, well, at least I do.

2009 was pretty good to me overall. I'm definitely in a better place right now than I was the last time the calendar flipped over. This decade? I can't really grasp the whole decade in my head at once -- my impression is that it was sort of an uneven road, but overall I'd have to say the trend has been upward.
