If we were trees, the ring for 2009 would be bloated, banged up, discolored, and pockmarked. This was the year where I almost got divorced, where I almost got to work with Zack Galifinakis and Robert Downey Jr. (lol, I auditioned for a movie with them, but I didn't meet them) where I worked the most in the film/tv industry, the year that my last grandparent died, I found journal entries from my g-g-grandfather's trip from England to Utah to be one of the first LDS polygamists, I finally got fit like I used to be, I made new friends, I helped put one pf the FLDS jerks in jail, I figured out what was wrong with my manuscript, I met up with old friends, channeled my inner-high schooler at a boss 80s party, and it was the year that I gained a teenager (from a pre-teen.)

This was the year I finally went sky diving. More than once.

I wrote a bunch, I screwed around without writing much at all, I got new ideas, and played a ton of mahjohng. I cooked, made things, traveled to SXSW, 'Bama, Florida, and Vegas, all to hang with beloved friends, figured out a bunch of stuff about myself (yay, therapy!) and didn't make a single damn promise to do anything last New Years, so I'm going to keep that up this year. I solemnly swear to be me, to mess up, to figure things out, to talk too much, love too hard, be irritating, feed people, try and fix things, sit on my ass more than I should, read too much, read too little, watch too much, miss all the shows I should be watching, dig in my yard, drink, laugh, cry, and play with my dog. If self improvement hitches a ride, then that's cool, I'm just going to keep on keeping on.

Happy 2010, let's try to not dick this year up. I'm spending the day making tamales (how 2 and pics to come Monday) and listening to good music, great way to start things off, imo. :)

(And for those who care about such things, and let's face it, my slight OCD tendencies enjoy the organization, here's a list of fannish things I wrote.

Dennis and Dee Go All The Way Dennis and Dee are siblings, first of all. Second of all, if you're not watching It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia then I'm judging you. That show is the balls.

Letters Between Edward Cullen and Fangtasia If y'all haven't figured out that the Cullenses are Mormons, I don't know what to tell you. Edward rides his bike in his suit and tries to convert the vampires of Fangtasia via letters and voicemail messages. Whee, crackfic!

Nice Work If You Can Get It Jason/Pam with Eric - Pam's on assignment. And it's [Insert title here.] *G*[True Blood/Sookie Books]

It's Twilite, Innit? CHAV-version of Twilight, hilarity ensues.

Awright, babies, tell ya mama I axed how she durrin.

Yeah, I'm resolute to keep things moving. I don't know if it's forward, sideways, inches down, or whatever, but I'm gripping the rock with my teeth and hanging on. :D

I am going to adopt your resolutionless resolution, though no dog to pet or play with. I guess I'll have to use stand-in neighbor dogs and cats instead!

We have adopted Danny Devito's "This [insert noun here] is the tits" for any awesome thing we encounter. That show makes me cringe and laugh out loud, often at the same time.

How did I miss "Letters Between..."? I wish I had time right this minute, but i have to go get the Black-eyeds on for eating along with hockey at Fenway Park! I'll play catch up later.
Jan. 1st, 2010 05:27 pm (UTC)
I highly recommend adopting my lack of rules! :D And I will gladly offer my services as a petter of pets by proxy for you, should you require that service.

Isn't that show wonderfully awful?! It makes me laugh every time. Oh, Dee, being just as rotten (if not moreso at times) than the boys. Love it. I like do Artemis impressions on my way to auditions, too. Ha!

BLACK EYEDS. Yum! I've got some cooking up with some rotel, chipotles and a salad to accompany the tamales. HAPPY NEW YEAR, SWEETHEART.
Jan. 1st, 2010 06:26 pm (UTC)
HAPPY NEW YEAR, SWEETHEART. Right back at you!

Oh man, I couldn't agree more.

Love your resolutionless resolution. I think I'll adopt it.

Happy New Year, sweetie.

happy New Year to you, too! May this one suck far less than 2009!
Jan. 1st, 2010 06:29 pm (UTC)
Now, that's my kind of resolution! Why change what's working out so dern well? :)

It's tamale day here, too. I've got a pot steaming away, and it smells sooooo good! I also have saurkraut and pork in the crockpot, cuz you just can't take the Ohio out of the girl. Yay pork!

YUM YUM to your icon!! A few more hours to go, for me! Happy New Year!
Jan. 1st, 2010 07:56 pm (UTC)
WOW, I was wondering what I might do to put an FLDS jerk in jail - can I know the history behind that one?
Jan. 1st, 2010 08:16 pm (UTC)
There's been a trial for the YFZ Ranch, and I helped with some intel. I'm writing a book, you'll get more then. :)
Jan. 1st, 2010 08:26 pm (UTC)
I am very impressed. Being stuck in Provo I hear such conflicting opinions about that whole affair. I excited to know there is a book coming out about that.
Jan. 2nd, 2010 04:05 pm (UTC)
Hit my "mormons" or "polygamist" tags. I got to where I wouldn't shut up about the whole affair for a bit. :) I'm not able to talk in depth about certain things right now, as the trial is still ongoing and I don't want to jeopardize any convictions.
Jan. 4th, 2010 06:51 pm (UTC)
Thank you for pointing me in that direction. I just spent that last... Four Hours! Reading up on your past posts. Good thing I have the day off of work to indulge.

I must say that I am grateful you write about your opinion of your past religious affiliations so freely. Growing up Mormon myself I have a hard time finding anyone that has such similar thoughts to my own on the whole Thing (as I cannot think of any other word to define Mormonism and the 'Thing' that is being Mormon as it's so much more than a title). You do, however, articulate and present your opinions in a much more eloquent manner than I ever could. Mostly my thoughts boil down to: Polygamy?! WTF is this stuff? Grrr!
Jan. 4th, 2010 07:02 pm (UTC)
It took me YEARS to be able to talk about it. Years. I'm still realizing things, you know? And feel free to chime in whenever about stuff. I love it when people delurk. :)
Jan. 4th, 2010 07:13 pm (UTC)
Love the icon.

I am sure it will be years yet before I fully realize anything substantial about my youth and involvement in the Mormon Church - I'm still in the numb, 'can't believe I devoted so much to That' phase, and any insight I achieve at this point can only be assessed for it surface value. But, I am sure future self analysis will be fruitful.

I've added you to my flist, so a discussion member I will become :P
Jan. 1st, 2010 08:31 pm (UTC)
I like how you plan for 2010. :-) I highly approve. ;-)

Happy New Years!
Jan. 2nd, 2010 04:06 pm (UTC)
Happy New Years to you, too!
Jan. 1st, 2010 10:21 pm (UTC)
Happy New Year! Keep on truckin', I say.
Jan. 2nd, 2010 04:06 pm (UTC)
Happy New Year to you - I'd say you deserved it! <3

I KNOW WON'T THAT BE AN AMAZING MOVIE?!?!!?! It was a long shot that I'd get the part (national search for my character) but I had a lovely few days dreaming and wishing...

It's Always Sunny!! one of my top 5 shows of all time, seriously.

i live in Columbus, OH now, and the only mexican restaraunt that served real tamales* closed when i wasn't looking!

so i eagerly await your monday post, when hopefully i am able to follow your instructions to make my own. because living a life without tamales is not something i want to do! *sob*

*tamales should NOT be made with CHICKEN, and for the love of all that's tasty REALLY should NOT be made with TOFU. i mean, tofu has it's place, but that place is NOT wrapped in a tamale!!!
Jan. 2nd, 2010 04:08 pm (UTC)
Whoa, I'm totally not on board with the no chicken in tamales, as a Texan. But tofu? Someone should be slapped for ruining the masa with that!
Jan. 5th, 2010 12:22 am (UTC)
sorry it took me so long to respond - cable modem went *fritz* sigh.

i like tamales that have, say, pork and chicken. not JUST chicken. i really prefer just pork [probably because that's the only kind i had as a kid].

the tofu i just do NOT understand. it's evil, it is. i like tofu, in some things. NOT TAMALES!

meh. people are crazy here in Ohio. tofu in tamales proves it.

Hi sweets!! (Oh my goodness, everyone goes back to school on Monday and I get my routine back, wheeee!!!)

Let's hope for a great end of decade year, yes!! (2009 was just the year of extremes, it seems. Exhausting!)

Jan. 3rd, 2010 03:42 pm (UTC)
Happy MMX, lady. Glad to have, erm, met you!

Back at you, C!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
