|10:38 am - 2007 Recap: a bit late|
January: Rang in 2007 with Guitar Hero and Guitar Hero II. Inherited a massive load of books, some antique. Was forced into getting a MySpace account.
February: Had some interesting health issues, somewhat ameliorated by the fact that I had taught my cat, Pouncer, the command "back rubs." I knew there had to be a way to put that kneading behavior to good use!
March: Tried out SingStar in an attempt to break the Guitar Hero habit with something stronger. Didn't work. Acted as Mom's lovely assistant at the Psychic Fair again. This time I didn't buy silks, velvets, or even beads. Go, me!
April: Got what I thought was a stomach flu, and stupidly, did not immediately see the GI doc. Dad made multiple attempts to get a passport for his Alaskan cruise. Hilarity ensued.
May: The aforementioned stomach flu ended up putting me in the hospital, wherein I was dosed with Phenergan, Dilaudid, and other sundry goop for a week or so. Luckily, the hospital had wireless Internet, so that I could amuse my friends and co-workers by sending them stoned-out-of-my-mind emails.
June: Mom and Dad finally got to take their Alaskan cruise. Stressedoutwomen.com was born. Participated in BLITEOTW. Sort of.
July: LOLtheist.com was born. My attempts to get my free address labels from the DAV continued in futility.
August: Glamguns.com was born. I finally get to meet il31415li, with whom I've been corresponding for a year or so. He was passing through on the way to Burning Man.
September: il31415li becomes a longer-term house guest as Charlie and I kinda like having him around and can use someone to help with the chores. Indentured servitude FTW! Charlie and he have an adventure attempting to convert a horse trailer to a motorcycle trailer. We discover that tape measures are for sissies, and that there's no limit to the things you can do with a Sawzall and a welding rig. Charlie sends "Secrets of a Gay Marine Porn Star" and " Masculine Marine: Homoeroticism in the U.S. Marine Corps" to our nephew undergoing Marine Basic Training. Charlie is also forced into creating a MySpace account.
October: We discover that there exists a digital, musical, Spongebob Squarepants rectal thermometer, thus explaining why so many people believe that the GlamGuns.com stuff is real.
November: Charlie decides that he no longer wants to be married to me.
December: Divorce papers go in Tuesday the 4th. End of a year, end of a marriage, beginning of a new life.
All in all, there were many good things last year, and a few bad things. Altogether, I think that things will be looking up in 2008. Best wishes to all!
All things new at the beginning of a new year with new adventures sounds wonderful. I wish you the very best darlin *hugs* *smo* :-)

Sounds like a pretty full year! Hope 2008 is teh hawsome for you!
Could have been worse. Someone could have given you a used SpongeBob rectal thermometer and told you it was a coffee stirrer/temperature gauge.
Hang in there. This year is gonna kick ass for ya.
