What a year can make. Liv's 2009 Life in review.

by Liv | Published on December 31st, 2009, 12:44 pm | Life

It's east to sit here and say 2009 was complete rubbish, but honestly, looking back I can't deny that "I've come a long way baby!" So much more has happened than I can list here, and I'm really looking forward to what 2010 brings. That's just it, isn't it? Good or bad... as long as we're moving forward.

Happy New Years to everyone....

1. We learned to make Spanish Coca
2. We learned how to make Scotch Eggs.
3. My Former Employer announces "Lesbians can't have their cake and eat it too."
4. I discovered my roots.
5. Discovered I'm part time-lord.
6. Got and love fingerless gloves.
7. Renovated the Kitchen on the cheap.
8. Discovered more of my roots, and went to Cardiff, got exterminated by a Dalek.
9. Drank Guinness with 150,000 other people in Trafalgar Square listening to U2.
10. Hung out at BBC's Television Centre and felt "not worthy" as John Barrowman walked beside me.
11. Discovered Yakisoba Chicken
12. Discovered a Ford Taurus is not good for off-roading.
13. Learned Vodka in pasta is an amazing gift from God.
14. Cats don't like baths & speak Klingon.
15. I'm Welsh. It all starts to make sense now.
16. Discovered the meaning of life.
17. Shannon and I replicate Europe's Chantilly Cream for the best evar cake icing!
18. Shoot the cover for my book.
19. My kairotic moment.
20. Mars Muffins. Yes the lesbian made a muffin recipe.
21. Met some great people and had the best dinner at Table 16.
22. Discovered I'm a writer.
23. Found the world's best candy bar. Unfortunately it's not made in America.
24. We accidentally come up with an amazing pasta recipe.
25. Discover Grandma's car we inherited is major broken. Decide to repair by lowering Grandma's car.
26. Love Jane Austen, anyway you cut it.
27. Got back to TJ's Deli for the first time in 10 years, and had the most wonderful sandwhich.
28. Discover how to Pimp that Big Mac.
29. More Jane Austen.
30. Discover the circle of life.
31. Reflect back on Shan getting almost sent to Lesbian rehab.
32. No, I'm not weird. I'm just living in the wrong place.
33. Brother comes to visit.
34. Invented the Ghetto Whopper
35. Painted the living room. Hated the color. Now it's grown on me.
36. Threw together a Dalek costume dress for Shan in under 24 hours.
37. Went to Tanglewood. Missing old friends.
38. Contemplated college in my future.
My overall reaction to 2009 is "Meh." I've had worse years, and I've had better ones. 2009 was a year to be gotten through, in preparation for the (planned) great stuff for this year. If I hit the lotto jackpot as well... so much the better.

Well there at the end I was pretty crackin depressed over the whole thing, but as I looked back, I realized, I really did accomplish a crap load.... and hopefully will see the results of that this year.

I show you something fantastic and you find fault.

The last decade was very good for me. 2009 wasn't the best year, but not the worst of the decade. Setting up as an independent consultant was nerve wracking, but has paid off enornously. Even last year when I was only getting 60% billable hours was still better than my average year employed.

Things are looking up, three people have called me with prospects in the two weeks before Christmas and I may start getting busy again. I think I may miss 4 day weekends :(
All stupid ideas pass through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is ridiculed. Third, it is ridiculed
