Happy New Year to you all! I was just commenting to someone a couple days ago how mild a winter it's been. I need to stop making American friends. Well, this is progress, at any rate. I got a standing O today. In a week and a half I will mark my one-year anniversary in my studio flat. Occasionally, a few of my friends post first lines of songs for us to guess the songs. Spot the difference: In the past Pollard (and others) have commented they like my coloratura (vocal agility). Fuckin' 'ell, Derek, what are you doing messing around with a 22-year-old?! I have to thank my f-list. I am amused by people who friend people they don't know on LJ. I think I just will reach my unofficial reading goal for the year.
