This is how we will end 2012.

December 31, 2012

in through the looking glass

So the world didn’t end in 2012.

Sorry Mayans. You have been wrongfully blamed for incorrect prophesy when in fact people simply misinterpreted your calendar system. But no worries, we will probably bring an end to ourselves soon with all the sinners and the sinful things we commit on a daily basis.

In total honesty though, I have been on vacation for five days, and it’s been a long five days because I forgot to pack my hairbrush so this head of long hair hasn’t been brushed since we left home for Florida on December 27… I digress. I’ve been away with no computer, no TV, no wifi most of the time, so I haven’t been up on the news. This morning I thought, let me check to see what’s up with the world on the last day of 2012.

Kim Kardashians is pregnant with Kanye West’s baby. And people can’t seem to shut up about it. (Yah, I get the irony that I’m talking about it too. Touche.)

That’s the headline news I got when I queried the Interwebs for “Hey, it’s new year’s eve, tell me something significant and meaningful.” This speaks to why we still need print newspapers, if you ask me. So be it, world. Or, more accurately, so be it, USA. (Pretty sure the Chinese are obsessed with something more meaningful on this day… I have no idea actually so drop me a line if you have the answer.)

Anyway, I’m blogging from my Android, and this is a roundabout way to wish you a happy new year.

Think of it this way: there is no other way for us to go but up in 2013.

Love from a sick blogger on a cold St. Pete Beach in Florida.

Yes, next year is looking better already!

What a great idea. Sun, sand, surf, waves, seashells–to bring in the new year.

Lucky lucky you.

Happy New Year, I love knowing you.

Happy New Year to you too. I’ve tried my best so far avoid mentioning those two who are having that thing. They get enough attention as is.

What a gorgeous photo.

Hope the cold beach is still getting you some peace and relaxation. That your vitamin D stores have gone up. And that you have a fabulous 2013!

It figures that on the day we are leaving the sun is all shining and it’s not freezing… But yes, though cold, I knew I’ve absorbed good amount of D. Thank you Miss Silver lining. 😉

I adore you. And don’t you think I don’t appreciate the fact that you actually blogged this from your phone- I know the kind of dedication and skill require to do such a thing. Mostly because I’ve failed at it numerous times.
I am with you on that beach in spirit as we go over fiscal cliff falls talking about Kimye’s baby….
tally ho!

They are called Kimye? Ugh. We should give the two of us a name. How about Kellin? Xo
