Howdy y'all. Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays. We had a pretty quiet Christmas this year--just Mumsy, me, Lil Sis, Big Sis#2, Useless-in-Law, and Niecey G.
I have a new bass.
(Lil Bro#1 has a guitar that looks almost the same, which is called Ragnar. hence my bass has been christened Rollo.)
Rollo punched me in the face last night while I was trying to practice playing for church, so he is aptly named. That thing is friggin heavy.
I also got a MASSIVE supply of Sakura pens.
And Lil Sis got me a great colouring book, so I have been arting quite a bit.
Which has led me to steal Tempest's New Years resolutions from last year: Do no harm, take no shit, and make good art (whatever form that art may be).
IN OTHER NEWS
I think I like a boy. And for once in.... ........... pretty much my entire life, he is not a manwhore, he is not an asshole, and (as far as I know, at least), he is not married or in a relationship. (I probably just jinxed myself saying/typing that out loud, but I can't keep this bottled up for any longer; I'm about to explode.
He's rather a bit older than I am, but at this stage I think it's a certainty that I will end up settling down with someone older (if I ever settle down....). He's not even that cute. I just like him a lot.
But being the most awkward person ever and just socially disabled in general, I don't know what to do. He is one of those people who never uses social media. I have his number because he's one of the drummers for the church band, but that's only because we do a lot of group messaging for the band. I want to ask one of the other bands members if he is in fact single, but that is a level of awkward from which I don't think I could easily recover.
SO I DUNNO WHAT TO DO
Which means I'll probably sit in silence and do nothing.
So how were the holidays for the rest of you? Any exciting plans for New Years Eve? Mine will be unexciting, with just M., another friend, Lil Bro #2, and myself. We'll be eating a gourmet dinner of slow-cooked short ribs and my signature rosemary smashed red potatoes, plus playing Yoshi and Mortal Kombat on Nintendo 64. And lots of alcohol.
