2006 Begins!

Juannie and I had a fun and quiet New Years Eve celebration at home. It got really foggy so it was nice being all cozy and snuggly while toasting the beginning of 2006. My resolutions for this year are to walk more using the iPod as motivation, post at least one photo for each day of the year in photodee and to continue sharing info and articles about what's going on in New Orleans post-Katrina.

January - Happy New Year. I am too sleepy to write about my fun evening or my morning's adventure with the pups so here's a little survey.

February - From a wonderful weblog about books and libraries, Library Dust comes a touching post about the role books played in the author's love and respect for our animal friends.

March - Before this weekend, I'd never heard about The BTK Killer.

April - These 20 photos from Iraq won the Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography.

May - The useful little Post-It is 25 this year.

June - Last week, the washing machine stops working on the gentle cycle. New timer required - not cheap and washer no longer under warranty.

July - Sandra Day O'Connor has resigned from the Supreme Court. I thought last summer was bad with all the election rancor.

August - Darfur through the eyes of its children.

September - I am increasingly saddened and worried by the situation in New Orleans.

October - Two more tropical waves are firing up and will probably become named storms in the next 24 hours.

November - Juannie and I are back from Disney World.

December - Juannie brought me a sweet surprise back from Austin, The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde.

I love walking and running with my iPod, I have a whole "in training" playlist and I put it on shuffle and go... it's great.

When we got back out here to my brother's after going to Bayona, the firecrackers/fireworks were still being shot off all through the fog and it was just a bit surreal.

I'll have to do my 2005 LJ meme tomorrow, my iBook just hit the edge of its battery and once I take it up to plug it in, I think I'll be hitting the pillow. Glad to have met you just at the end of the year... looking forward to seeing your photos...

ps. The Beau grew up in Dallas, so we are watching the game too... though he is of course discouraged because once the Redskins won there wasn't much point... poor boy...

I haven't figured out the playlist thing yet. I need to do that so I can pick out songs that keep me moving and grooving.

I am glad we met, too. It's so weird because I was just going to your info page to friend you and you'd already friended me! Great minds...

I can't believe the regular season is already over. Especially with the Saints having such a dismal year. :-(

we were probably info-friending at the same time with those great minds. :-)

made it through the meme (whew!) and now the computer is plugged in rechargins and I have stretched the cord over to bed where I am lounging while The Beau is still downstairs trying to watch the Cowboys game through all the static coming from the announcers' booth about how it's the last ESPN Sunday Night Football broadcast ever after 19 years... as if they hadn't finagled the Monday night contract...

nola.com has already had a news flash about how we get the number 2 pick, and the story has already noted that our previous no. 2 pick was a quarterback named (drum roll) ARCHIE MANNING (trumpets)... by way of suggesting Matt Leinart, which would be so not a bad idea...

okay, now I am going to do the fight-insomnia thing by putting the computer back away from the bed and just reading for a while...

We need a QB! Bouman is not gonna do it for us. I hope that Benson will give up the cash needed to get us a player of Leinart's caliber.
