Fizzling Out


Tomorrow, I will compile the 2014 Skirts Awards and share my favorite books, movies, podcasts, TV shows, nicknames, quotes, inside jokes, and other useless trivia. It will be festive and fun and lovely. I will have all sorts of energy and maybe even shower and wear real clothes.

Tonight, though, I will sit in my pajamas and eat pizza and listen to podcasts. When I have finished with that, I will read books and listen to Chopin. Then I will watch a movie with my family right up until midnight, when we will tune in to the local ABC 7 News anchors, who are always smashed and always kiss a little too much at midnight and always make everyone really uncomfortable. We will toast with sparkling white grape juice and watch the Chicago fireworks on TV and then immediately head to bed. It's a wonderful way to kick off the new year, and I really can't wait to see what the rest of 2015 brings.

Much love to all of you beloved Internet friends, and happy new year!
