it's over

'whew!' That time of year is over, and I'm much relieved, but getting up for work tomorrow is going to be painful as I've nearly changed over to full nocturnal mode from the full week off. Before the vacation I wondered what I was going to do with myself, but looking back I wonder what I did with my time. Oh well, I slept a lot and got some chores done, and the gingerbread cookies turned out all right, with sprinkles on top.

Had fun again with the D&D gang last night, then off to Taint for a bit and met up with Markie and Sean, but the smoke was getting to me so I took off. But before I did I had to poke Markie and Sean since I see them mostly via City of Heroes. They are in fact real people! Today I went to the Hirshhorn Museum with an excellent art guide and generally nice and woofy character in general and got to see Ann Hamilton's palimpsest, featuring live snails eating cabbage. We had to put on booties to enter the room-sized exhibit for the floor was coated with beeswax (sculptors seem to love beeswax for some reason) which in turn coated a layer of tiny slips of paper with stories on them. I guess the cabbages represented your brain, with the snails eating away at your memory, just as the slips of paper with memories on them coating the walls, yellowing with age, also decay and crumble away.

As my memories do...here's a brief link orgy to the fading images of 2005...from most recent to most distant: bird census, hip-hop jimbo, Kris Kringle Jimbo, shameless product promotion jimbo, hot fisheries biologist, Aquaman, Miss Adams Morgan Jimbo, Harper's Ferry Jimbo, Rehoboth Beach Jimbo, GIANT OCTOPUS, proper stretch technique jimbo, Jimbo & Petunia, crab feasting jimbo, luau!, Gracious W.Y.S.I.W.Y.G. Host, City of Heroes, Vancouver, B.C., Bob rocks the Capitol, muscle relaxant jimbo, hot marine biologist, Muppets on Crack, more hot fisheries biologists, Duran Fuckin' Duran, baby, Blowoff - Upstairs! Now With Clickboo's Armpit!, much snowboarding was done, Tucson, Arizona, Matthew Foxxy-Fox (simply because he's hot).

Muscle-relaxant jimbo is very endearing - kindof muscle relaxants meets I dream of Genie...

Happy new year. Maybe you should have set this up as a contest or vote. I cast mine for the snowman shot (wonderful, baleful sideways glance), or the shameful product promotion pic with the cast - again, something about the gaze at the camera. Have a great 2006!
