Happy New Years!

And goodbye to 2005. It was, all told, a good year. Certainly had its share of downs... but like the phoenix--or the Fenix Underground--we rise from the ashes to approach a new world and soar to even greater heights. Saying goodbye to 2005 means saying goodbye to some amazing things, but it's probably much healthier that way. There are some good things on the horizon... school is finally coming to a well deserved end, my mothers financial woes are finally over thanks to an inheritance to be paid out after my grandmother's passing, Brett & Timber are getting married, plans to go to Vegas, and of course, the big move to Washington.

There are also the little things. Like improvements in relations with Sara and Jill... and even a possible new special someone (times gonna tell on that one though). Or the mobility of my flexcar... even my new shoes from Nordstrom's (After-Christmas Sale man, it's good stuff) are reason to celebrate. They lasted a full three hours dancing, plus a ton of walking and standing and my feet feel great.

As I stood in the dance hall, listening to a dance version of Don't Cha, celebrating both the actual new years and the one announced by the DJ a full three minutes later I couldn't help but think... next year's gonna be alright.

I'm pretty sure it's "Fenix" underground. Because mispellings are cool and all. But I could be totally wrong.

Also: do we have to wait until Friday to hear about this mystery woman?

I have no idea what you are talking about... as you can clearly see in the post, I called it Fenix. See, no mistake. See?
