The Top Ten Reasons Why I'm Glad I'm Single And Live Alone

#10--I can sleep in without anyone milling around and waking me up on accident.
#9--What I want for supper is what's for supper.
#8--The only person who might complain about me not doing the dishes is the same person who got them dirty and still isn't doing the dishes, and thus has no room to complain.
#7--I don't have to worry or get suspicious when I'm the only one home at 1:00 in the morning.
#6--There's room in my passenger seat for my CDs, and a spot between the passenger seat and the door that's handy for that large QT glass I often have with me.
#5--While I'm out at 1:00 in the morning, nobody is at home worrying or getting suspicious.
#4--Nobody complains when I want to watch Buffy DVDs AGAIN.
#3--There's never a wait to use the restroom at home.
#2--I only have to schedule the holidays with my family.
#1--I have all these married/coupled friends who constantly remind me through word and deed that I'm lucky to be single and live alone.

You know, just in case that last post left anyone thinking I felt otherwise. The discomfort mentioned in that post stems from being somewhere where everyone else is wrapped up in something I'm not so interested in--like being stuck at a sci-fi convention when you abhor science fiction. While you may have a good time with the friends you're there with, once the costume competition starts, you're apt to leave, and apt to do so in a foul mood.

Again, just to clarify.

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2007, everyone.

I just posted this as a comment elsewhere, and thought I'd discuss it here.

My New Year's Eve tradition has for years been to attend a party, feel uncomfortable at midnight when everyone is kissing their love, accept kisses from the folks who feel they must then kiss everyone in the room, then give it about fifteen minutes before leaving for the sour-mooded drive home.

I really should figure out to just stay home and go to bed early.

I do have fun at the parties, I must say. It's just the cruddy ending that I hate.

Anyway, no resolutions here, except to try to do what I can with what I have where I am.

That and win Powerball.

Happy 2007. May your days be merry and bright!
