As you know, it's been a trying year for me. I've bitched and whined and overshared, but now it is time to reflect on what a great year it's been overall. And you were a huge part of that, CMB. So I wanted to say thanks, and send out some specific messages to:
Ivy, Amy E, and Sean…The Lonely Hearts Club band was a huge part of my life this year, thanks for the perspective and keeping me sane.
Audra and Adrienne…the sisters I never knew I wanted. Thanks for inviting me into your family.
Ryan…the daughter I never knew I wanted. And still don't want. But I think we are stuck with each other. Smackababy!
Jen and Rick…Thanks for inviting me into some of the most important parts of your lives this year.
Hannah and Corinna…best campmates ever.
John, Paul & Kim…the other best campmates ever, plus so much more. You were great friends this year.
Chris, Ronnie, Travis, Warren, Erik, and anyone else that helped with or dropped by best campsite ever.
Amy B…You were the first boardie I met after I got to Phoenix. Even though you barely spoke to me, it meant a lot. We should try that being friends thing again, we were almost there.
Tomas, Micah, Matt J, Adam, Dylan, AJ, Jason K, Mark, and any other members of the Phoenix Thread I've forgotten. It's nice to go to virtually any show alone and know I will see someone there I know.
Becca and Joann... I barely know you, and yet there's always a text or message of some sort from you to cheer me up.
Courtney…I don't know you AT ALL, and yet you are easily one of my favorite people on the planet. The lightning field awaits us.
Alma…thanks for the artwork. You'll never know how relieved I was, considering, again, we've never met.
Zack, Jason M, and MJA…Three more people I have never met, but you have made me laugh more than anyone else this year.
Alessandra…Maybe I will take you up on your suggestion in 2011. Thanks for keeping me company many lonely Tinychat nights.
That goes for the rest of the Tinychat crew as well, especially Gemma, Heidi, Andrew, Kylie, Cara, Brandon, Shannin, MooMoo, Morghan, other Zack, and yes, even Devin.
__________...the person I missed who I really shouldn't have. Sorry.
