You know how I got Ableton last week? Yesterday I bought off of Craigslist the other half of what I need for my diabolical plans: an Alesis QX25 MIDI controller. It's in front of me right now. I've got it talking to Ableton, knobs & all. [ profile] ionan came over last night and imparted seekrit nollij about making choonz. (He's an audio engineer with a DJ alter ego.) There shall be blood bleeps!

But! New Year's Eve! Party #1: small & cosy with [ profile] ack_yeahright & the Burning Man buds from '11 & '13 plus crazy delicious eats. Party #2: Off to [ profile] nerdvana for a bewildering array of alcohol, MOOers, MOOers by association, and the cuddle puddle in the harem pit. ([ profile] tfabris, if you're reading this, the chicks dig you for a long list of reasons. Don't deny it.) I'm sad to say that [ profile] tithonium & [ profile] loree are calling it quits on their NYE parties. I agree with their reasoning, but it's the end of a golden era. Yeah, I have other places to run around in my underwear and get into and out of trouble, but it won't be the same.

2014 sucked so hard for so many, but my year was pretty good. Shhh! Time for bullets!
  • There was the Vampire Ball where I met Temptress who then romanced me silly and continues to do so.
  • Funny Lady plugged me into the poly community. Naughty behavior ensued.
  • There was goddamn Burning Man with the fabulous Beavers. (Naughty behavior with them kind of goes without saying.)
  • I regained two nieces.
  • My son continues to grow up.
As for this year, to quote the hella tough [ profile] eeyorerin, Excelsior!

Oh, phoo, I'd always wanted to manage to get out to a Nerdvana NYE party. I delayed too long.

Attendance had been declining for years, and now they're having trouble doing prep for health & personnel reasons. It was time.

BTW, I totally screwed up the markup, now the entry is bigger. :p

Yarrrr! I'm now doubly kicking myself for not going.

I'm not convinced they're really calling it quits. Marty wrote that in a sulk. There are other opinions, and the party was grand. Just a somewhat smaller sort of grand ;-)

Sulk, tantrum, potato, potahtoe.

As has been pointed out, as my name is neither on the mortgage, nor do I pay rent, I do not have full mocking rights.

So the situation is neither serious nor hopeless? Excellent! I'll make sure I'm wearing some date panties again next year.

Happy New Year!

Wear some of these too
