the tits of 2009.

31 December 2009

2009 has been such a lovely year.  And no, I'm not being sarcastic.  Really.  Despite the constant pestilence, having my house almost burst into flames, and being unable to drop that stubborn extra 10-15... okay, fine, 20 pounds I've been carrying since the beginning of time, there have been some truly marvelous moments this year.

So, once again, I'm going to use that wonderful device called a "The Tits List" -- list of things I think are awesome, or "the tits" -- that I stole from the fabulous she-who-I-want-to-be-except-I'm-filipino-and-she's-not Ali. With it, I will recount all the yumminess of 2009.

In no particular order...

- vietnamese coffee.  yeah, I said coffee.  dammit.  (and no, I haven't had any in weeks.)

- being asked to write for a wonderful new blog and now find myself in league with some of the funniest, savviest, brilliant-est, and hottest (of course!) moms -- and dads! around, and having 2 of my posts picked for syndication!

- looking young, turning 40, then getting a cute little haircut that friends tell me makes me look even younger than I did before I turned 40.

- the continuation of our monthly Sushi with Larry with my girlfriends.

- getting the OK to shop for my own Christmas presents, AND finding enough Canadian Tire money on the credit card that my beloved Magic Bullet was FREE.

- meeting online friends in person... for sushi.

- the fireplace channel, and the fact that the cat also loves the fireplace channel...



- Glee

- appliances in my house that actually work.

- that Starbucks offers a fabulous selection of non-coffee drinks like my new favourite: soy green tea lattes.

- friends and family who finally listened to my nagging and started new blogs.

- watching my daughter's quirky sense of humour blossom right before my eyes.

- chocolate-dipped swirl ice cream cones.

- the best collections of sci-fi and fantasy shows on the air: fringe, eureka, supernatural, stargate:atlantis, smallville season 9, defying gravity, wizards of waverly place.  yes, you read right... wizards of waverly place.
(Updated Jan 2/10: Oh, Snowbear, I actually forgot to add SGU! Consider it added now.)

- making new totally lovable online friends: rougie, loukia, eunice, adam, haley-o, andreanna, maria,...

- new Red Dwarf and Futurama episodes in production.

- BBQ chips and bacon weaves.

- checking the mailbox expecting bills, and instead, finding cookies from one friend, books I won from another friend, and fudge from yet another.

- that my son no longer says "I wish I had a Wii" almost every day, because his wish has in fact come true.

- the new Star Trek movie... and OMG, Mr. Spock!

- when family comes in from out of town and you realize again how much you love them and wish they didn't live so frickin' far away.

- camping trips where you have a big enough tent to change in, a cook stove so you don't have to wait forever for the fire to turn to coals, and enough lamps so you can do dishes in the dark.

- warm feet thanks to these... (yay, I got 'em for Christmas!... but, boo, I need to vaccuum that rug!)




- disconnecting from my online world for a week.

- grilled cheese sandwiches.

- that I finally got off my ass and enrolled my daughter in dance class.

- the fact that my delicious husband can work from home from time to time.

- Kleen Kanteens.

- my funny readers.

- chocolate, and smoothies... and chocolate smoothies.

- so much more that I can't remember them now!

And that, my friends, is the awesomosity of my 2009!

How about you?  What's on YOUR list of The Tits in 2009?!

I second the Fireplace Channel. :-D And also Cats.

Twitter/tumblr is my blog. :-P

By Stargate: Atlantis did you mean Stargate Universe? Sanctuary is good too, as is Legend of the Seeker, Wharehouse 13 and Star Wars: Clone Wars. Also I miss Defying Gravity. Such a good show. :-( Kings was awesome too, and just as cancelled. >_< But we have Caprica to look forward to on Jan. 22nd!

Mmmmgrilledcheesebaconweaves.

My list of "the tits" is pretty slim this year. So I will probably just fill it with regular tits to make it look good. :-D

Laura Gerencser said...

This list is 'the tits'!!:):)Just fabulous!

Kari said...

It's too hot to burn a fireplace in southwest Florida, but my family and I still tuned to the fireplace channel too! LOL!

It has been a year of awesomeness, and maybe I will even get to blog about it tomorrow. Until then however i wish you and your family a very happy new year!

Cyndi said...

now if somehow, we can develop a I Dream of Jeannie method of travel, we would be having sushi and desserts almost every weekend.

life would be so good!

Happy New Year's G-Sis! BTW, LOVED, LOVED the holiday card!!

Mine's on its way...I know it gets there flip time!

Rougeneck said...

So glad you have so many things to celebrate! I totally the second the whole new online friends thing. Can't wait to make it an IRL thing. Happy New Year. xoxo

This is a totally different type of list than I was expecting when I clicked the link, but here goes anyway...

I now have a year of college under my belt, and I haven't made a grade lower than a B yet...

I got an iPhone...

COD:MW2...

Getting closer with my close friends (not in a creepy way)...

I became a Godfather to two beautiful children!

I'm sure there are a ton of great things I just can't think of right now, but I tend to look at the dim side of life a lot.

I still don't know what the heck to do with my blog/ web space/ web site, and it's driving me a little bit batty...

In other news, you're hair looks cute, and you look fabulous at any length, and don't let those few extra pounds get you down. I think it's kind of sexy. I found Kate Winslet attractive when she was still carrying a few extra pounds, Monica Belucci also, so live it up!

...and Happy New Years to you and your beautiful family!

Love the list! What a great way to recap an eventful year.
Happy New Year to you and your lovely family. I feel blessed to have you as a RL friend, and and online friend too!

@Snowbear: I updated my list to include SGU! OMG, I totally have to have a bacon weave in my next grilled cheese sandwich!!!

@Laura: Thanks, my dear! Hope you had a wonderful 2009. :)

@Kari: Thanks, darling! Hope you had a great New Year celebration!

@Cyndi: Glad you liked it! Yes, I think if you moved here, we'd be 5000 pounds all due to visits to Naru and Baked Expectations! :) xoxo

@Rougie: xoxoxoxo

@Paul: That's a pretty lovely list! Just have to say that you are an awesome person, and I'd love to hear/read more from you. Just keep writing about ANYTHING that comes to your head. I'll definitely come and read. :)
Much love to you and your lovely wife, and have a great 2010!

@JustMEtheMOM: Thank you so much, Kristin! :) You are lovely!

@Su: Thanks, my dear. I hope we see each other again soon in 2010. :)

Paul Johns said...
