I'm probably going to gain more weight than I lose, for the rest of the year I'm probably going to be be feeling like that person who goes to pick someone up at the airport and waits till all the passengers depart only to find out that the person he was waiting for did not even board the plane and I'm probably going to have my last remaining hopes and dreams crushed by reality . . .

. . . but you know what?

Fuck being a jaded cynical asshole.

Fuck having zero expectations from life.

Fuck not trying to look for happiness in material things.

Fuck reality.

Fuck not trying to fill that void with alcohol and great food.

Fuck not trying to be suspicious of people who are nice to you for no reason.

Fuck trying to connect with people with whom the only things to talk about happened a decade ago.

Fuck worrying about the past or the future.

Fuck second guessing yourself.

Fuck being a curmudgeonly old pessimist.

What I mean to say is,

HAVE A GREAT FUCKING NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!!

xoxo

I like the second guessing myself part. Probably I should resolve not to do it anymore.
Btw, I loved 'Middlesex' too, have you read 'Virgin Suicides'?

@Saadi: I guess I don't even remember when I internalized that!

@DDD: Thanks, DDD! You too!

@Chandni: :D . . .

@USP: Yeah, me to. Well, I guess we just have to go out there and create those new experiences! ( There you go, that's a first. Me sounding like a hallmark card! Heh! )

@Ritu: Yes, I am a big, fat horror! Thank you for noticing! :D . . . And don't worry, I'm pretty sure you will have an effin one!

@LoB: So you're finally back! Yes, second guessing is sort of a second nature to me. The book was good. No, I haven't read the 'Virgin Suicides'. Have you? Is it any good?

@USP: Really???????? Where is the real USP and what have you done to him??? :D . . .

@Anon: Thank you!

Oy, hate to break your bubble but I have reason to believe Anon's comment is spam.

But if it's of any help/use/importance, I think you and your blog are tops, have always been :)

@DDD: Yeah, I thought so too and even though that was fake, I kinda enjoyed it. And thank you for your lavish praise!! Right back at ya!! :D . . .

@A: You scare me with those tags, sometimes! :D . . .

@USP: When did that happen???

@Once again: I thought of making a pun with your handle and the fact that you're back, but then I thought the world is not yet ready for such a statement.

@A: Aww, thanks!
