2019 – Holy crap how is it 2019? time is a rubber band that snaps back at your face.

i think, just hear me out, the pills destroyed my brain.

1. What did you do in 2019 that you’d never done before?

wore dentures?

2. Did you keep your new years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

As i never make them i’m going to say this counts for a yes.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

UH…i think so? i think so. i’m not sure really. i think so.

4. Did anyone close to you die?

Not close close but close enough to where i was upset they did

5. What countries did you visit?

Just the multi-insane Glasgow, where i live. So while i didn’t visit a different country glasga has multiple personalities so all of those count.

6. What would you like to have in 2020 that you lacked in 2019?
same as last year and the year before that – energy. a sense of goals. I’m creatively empty. i don’t know how the fuck to get my mojo back beyond the occasional energetic squirt

7. What date from 2019 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
Oh goodness. The day i took the power back. The day my front tooth decided to give up. The day i realized i didn’t have much left in the tank.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
ehhhhhh? Probably finally starting to get my teeth in order.

9. What was your biggest failure?
oh the same the same – still eating too much, not trying to lose weight enough, not doing positive things. its a copy paste but its also a forward echo

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
hahahahah – probably had the worst case of flu-stuff ever. if there was a hole to be had there were MULTIPLE fluids shooting from it. It was 2 weeks of hell that i don’t think i’ve fully recovered from.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
a front tooth! coffee.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?
Family always. Friends and cohorts.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
oh you know – the dummy in charge. (ALL dummies in charge)

14. Where did most of your money go?
very similar again to last year – coffee coffee coffee – comics and cabs and taco bell YAY and yea bills bills bills

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
seeing the new star wars (hahah how’d that turn out) – seeing juliana hatfield and living colour – all my vacations. oh we got it so good here.

16. What songs will always remind you of 2019?
well, here are my top ten listened to songs of 2019 as determined by my (malfunctioning) last.fm scrobbler.

1. Kanye West – Famous
2. Kanye West – On Sight
3. Drake – Started from the Bottom
4. Radiohead – Bodysnatchers
5. Body Count – Talk Shit, Get Shot
6. Blowfly – Drenched In Cum
7. Drake – All Me (Feat. Big Sean, 2 Chainz) (Bonus Track)
8. The Orielles – I Only Bought It For the Bottle
9. The Orielles – Let Your Dog Tooth Grow
10. Funkadelic – Super Stupid

So really not too different from last year – HOWEVER – the last fm app on my phone went batshit crazy this year deciding to multiscrob tracks i’ve listened to once up to 30 or 40 times per play, massively ruining the stats. its very disappointing. I wouldn’t say i didn’t listen to a lot of the songs a bunch of times, just not as many as it may seem.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you happier or sadder?
steady decline

18. What do you wish you’d done more of?
