Not at all. I'm surprised you don't have ladies beating down your door.

TPBM really doesn't like the spelling/word auto correct on their device but still hasn't turned it off :?

I do like it, but of course it's on a laptop, not a phone... Still, it keeps my prose much more readable.
TPBM has a crush on a fellow eplayan.

No. Never really thought about it as being vulgar. The things that are considered proper, or not, vulgar or not, in the default, are a real part of the problem there.

TPBM - is only going to have 1 drink tonight.

Not unless--in a curious case of bad luck, or felonious firebuggery--two separate house parties burn to the ground.

Hi Jella! Thanks for the reminder. I'll admit that I don't actually need to leave home in order to dig up enough of those for a small crowd. :D

The person below me has a NYE resolution they don't mind admitting to.

At least. Of course, I started posting again a few days ago. Does that still count?

TPBM doesn't care about NYE, because they know the real NYE is the night the Man burns.

Nope, all my calendars start on Jan 1, so this is still NYE. And I'm getting paid to be drunk and make out with boys at my favorite club* (oh, and I guess technically to take pictures... ), so I care enough to get decked out & have a great time.

Nope. I expect to be moving into a shiny, new apartment somewhere in the wilds of the San Fernando Valley. It will be the first time in my life that I have lived somewhere besides Salem, OR.

TPBM has something exciting going on today.

I have no idea what is old haunt...so I am probably not going there...
On the other hand I am going somewhere I've never been before...but I wanted to :)

Jeeez, and before I posted OR posted...so to answer her...I am moving my stuff and hopefully will be sleeping in my new home :D

TPBM spent great NYE.

No. But it wasn't horrible. Keep your expectations low, so you won't be disappointed.
(

"Old haunts" are places where you used to hang out a lot. Why haunts? I think you yourself is the ghost in question. Damn idioms. I use them so carelessly, and cannot give an explanation when called on them.)
TPBM thinks that to be strong you must be flame retardant.

Not at all.

tpbm is very curious about the tickets sales info coming up.
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

I wish I were responsible enough to go to sleep; true.

Yes, and the fact that lot of my friends live in different time zone which is -9 hours from my time doesnt really help to prevent staying up until 4am.

TPBM needs just 4 hours of sleep a day.

Not per day. I do sleep in 4 hour increments. After work and before work.

Almost every night! Though doing so does occasionally put a damper on reality.

O man I wish! I've read a few things on how to start practicing, but have had no luck.

Totally true ... and that I wish had a device like Alexander Hartdegen had in the movie The Time Machine.

TPBM is hoping that 236 days pass quickly rather than drag on ...

No. I have too many plans to realize. And the faster we get to the burn, the faster its over.
Plus...the dragging on makes it soo much sweeter.
