If you can't hear my lackluster feelings towards the true meaning of "New Year" beating the bee juices out of you well...I just...I can't help you.
But then I think "cmon Brittni, are you saying this because you really don't believe the beginning of a new year is a metaphorical fresh start for those who want to better their lives in the coming months, OR are you just lazy as shit and know you have no intention of regimenting any sort of behavior that is deemed "unsanitary" or "harmful to children" or "better for your health in the long run." And the answer is...the second one.
Here's the thing. I kind of really like where I'm at in life. I don't hate my body, I like all my friends, my boyfriend is a really bitchin nerd mate and I want to make sweet sweet love to my job. So I kind of just want to give a big middle Flight of the Conchords bird to this New Year, that wants me to want to change all my shit up.
(yeah. Screw You, New Years Resopooption)
Don't get me wrong, I'm SUPER excited to continue living and breathing and wasting most of my time on the internet, but now I don't have the added pressure of accomplishing a goal I'm fairly sure I'll fail at miserably in the coming year and then be super bummed at my inability to accomplish what some would deem the most menial of tasks. Like...cleaning...anything...in general.
I do however have a new theme for this year, and that is:
Nerd Out With Your Turd Out
(I tried to find a picture that went along with that new stellar catchphrase but surprisingly the internet has not prepped for such levels of awesome and we all know how good I am at Paint. Hence, here we are, reading in Italics.)
It's my take on Rock Out With Your Cock Out, but ...not as good...in any way.
You can take it, though. Consider it my New Years gift to you. AND NO RE-GIFTING. Also no refunds.
Now here's your real gift. I feel like I put you through a pretty crappy post, as I tend to do most of the time, but if there's one I'm hands down put your cake to the ground GOOD at it...
is BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS (yelled like a dinosaauuuuuurrrrr)!!!!
What I've read recently that is totally legit:
1. First Meetings in Ender's Universe by Orson Scott Card (you have to have read AT LEAST Ender's Game, and I recommend every book in the series thereafter, in order to read this one. I mean, no one from the CIA is going to scale down on ropes and fishline your throat off, but I still highly advise it.)
2. Fray by Joss Whedon (a graphic novel. And it may or may not be a graphic novel set in the future based on Buffy but it's a new slayer in a crazy ass version of New York and...I think I may have revealed too much about my personal interests.)
3. The Word For World is Forest by Ursula K Le Guin (Think Avatar, but more settling-in-the-center-of-your-soul-esque)
Here's to making 2012 as much like 2011 as humanly possible. Woooooooooo!
