Christmas and New Years went off without any family drama this year, which much pleases me. Some fools at the house behind us decided to set off fireworks to celebrate. Apparently, the cops were waiting around for just such an opportunity and came down the street within minutes, lights flashing, speaking "STOP THE FIREWORKS" over their bullhorn.... My dad, drunk off his ass, decides to yell out, "you'll never catch me!" I made for the door like a bandit, my mom and brother close on my heels. I'm still not sure if it was to avoid the embarrassment or to laugh our asses off, because both happened in spades.
Within the past week, my dad kindly told me that, by his estimation, I should have already given him two grandchildren.
This is not the first instance of this; in fact, he and my mother have been discussing my relationship status (or lack thereof) in depth over the past few months, with her arguing that I don't need someone to be complete and him stating my complete lack of interest concerns him.
I'm all of 25 and have told them multiple times not to expect biological grandchildren from me. I don't know how many times I need to tell him to get it through his head, but it's starting to edge from "kinda funny" to "downright irritating."
Resolutions for this year are none too impressive. Get a job is at the top of the list. Other things of note involve clearing off my "games to be completed" list, finally achieving 99 Runecrafting on Runescape, attempting to blog more often, and clearing out some of the clutter in my room. Then, there's the ever-present "be healthy", which has subgoals of: eating more healthy, nutritious foods; sticking to a regular workout routine of three days muscle training, three days cardio, and one day break (with the cardio days to be changed at my discretion - I may add cardio to the muscle days as I get into the routine); and to balance out my life a little bit. Which means I don't want to work or play too hard, and I really need to get back in to my spiritual side because it's been sorely lacking this past year and that makes me none too happy.
Still trying to figure out this "warm in winter" phenomenon we have going on at the moment. I can't think of any day in the past two weeks that's actually required winter coats. I never, ever, ever thought I'd root for cold weather, but we need a nice, hard frost to kill off all the buggies before they eat us alive later this year.
Late night is late and I should wrap this up before I ramble on too much longer. A belated Happy New Year to the f-list. May it bring more success and joy to you than the year just past!
And this is a wonderful opportunity to test out this crosspost function, yay!
