Starting the new year out right


New year....new hair. This is actually Christmas 2006. I don't ever remember my hair being that color, but I rather enjoy it. I think it is time for a change. Poor Ashley. She really is patient with my constant indecisiveness and 4 hour hair appointments. No one should have as much hair as I have been cursed/blessed with. In fact, my mother-in-law asked me if I had fake hair attached the other day. We got a pretty good chuckle.

The hubby got a new computer. Apple called and it's official....the old one is dead. Luckily, the hard drive was in tact and we were able to salvage everything. In my mind things should just work forever and when they don't it is just so frustrating. In the computer world his computer was ancient and I guess the situation could always be worse.

I don't really believe in making resolutions for the new year. People always say they are going to go to the gym or start eating right or stop procrastinating. Why do you need to wait until the beginning of a new year to decide to do those things? You should just do them all year round. Anyway, I decided that I did not read near enough books last year. In fact, I only read 5 of the 20 or so books that I bought at the Friends of the Library book sale in February. I read other things instead. Mainly things people loaned me and said "you have to read this". I can't seem to say no. So, unless I ask you to borrow a book please don't loan me anything to read. As you can see I have my hands full with last years books. That being said, I challenge my other half to a read off. Who can read the most books in a year. Are you up for the challenge, Mr. Nash?


Hope everyone has a safe and happy new year. We will be spending it with Wayne and the Flaming Lips. Darn good way to ring in 2009!!

You already know how I feel about the new hair. Can't wait to see it! (Or the new boots!) Your hubby has convinced me to go with the Mac. I agree, things should last forever. Alas. And I want updates on the Nash Challenge 2009. By the way, I have this book you should read ....
(Seriously, longest comment ever.)

Does the NY Times count? What about closed caption?

I will accept your challenge.

This must be how John McCain felt in the last few months in the election.

There are a few conditions which I'll address with you on neutral ground, with at least four witnesses and a notary public - remember a kiss is not a contract.

Oooh, a battle royale! I want to be the referee, but only if I can have a nifty little black & white striped shirt. Oh, and those knee socks with the little stripe of colour around the top.
Nice Flight of the Conchords reference, Z.
