Monthly Archives: December 2012

I still remember last new year’s eve — with a new camera, watching a multi-artist concert from a balcony with tons of people below my feet.  Confetti everywhere.  Fireworks.  Smoke.

A massive countdown.

Now I’m here at home, keeping myself content with the lovely fireworks before the smoke completely blocks out the window and before it completely blocks out my sanity and whatever sense of control I still have left that’s preventing me from texting you to read, or if you’ve read, the post.

Because I actually have load, believe it or not.

On other news, I ate butterscotch, napoleones, and lechon.  And we made puppets.

Roughly ten minutes before the much awaited 2012 finally ends.

Here’s to getting to hear you out —

Well, I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.


(Hopefully I remember to do this.)
Happy holidays!

What happened?

To keep things short, I ended the hug tally on Day 9, took a break on Day 10 (which moves Day 10 to a Monday instead of that Friday and cuts my Hug Tally days to 13,) made a secret list of people I had to hug for the remaining days and hugged them.

I had to hug 12 particular people during Peace Camp.
My Hug Record: 259 in 24 hours


Oh, and the world didn’t end.

That’s about it.
