Ok, this is a fan-ish mishmash of things, you have been warned.  

First off... Dear Justified, there are no words to express how happy I am to have you back on my tv.  Art and his Marshall stiffie, Tim and his razor sharp sarcasm, Raylan and his everything.  It is my happy place.  And Boyd?  Please pontificate some more,becaus damn.  

Just saw this on Tumblr and I am not sure what to think about it.  But Fallout Boy are scheduled to appear on Jimmy Kimmel on Feb 13.  Or at least that is what his guest lineup says.  (http://www.interbridge.com/lineups.html#JKL)  And yeah.  After all the Keltie BS I figured it was just another attempt to get the fans riled up, but... Jimmy Kimmel.  And I am so afraid to believe it until Pete or Patrick confirm it, but dear gods, please.  After everything Bandom has been through lately, please.  *flails*

Both Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness are killing me regularly AND THEY DON"T EVEN COME OUT UNTIL MAY.  The latest IM3 poster triggered a massive capslock texting frenzy and an interview with JJ about Trek caused actual trouble keeping my shit intact.  Must figure out how to be near fangirls when these come out.  I am not entirely sure we will get out of May alive.

White Collar.  OH EL,  Putting the rest under a cut because I don't want to spoil you. )

Holy cow, another year gone.  *shaking my head* 

It's been a better year than the one before, and for the most part I can't complain.  Cari and I made a pact that this would be the year of random concerts and it really was.  Starting with Fun. and ending with Steve Carlson in England, and pretty much all kinds of random and wonderful in between.  The William Beckett and Fun. gigs have special places in my heart because Brandi trusted me blindly and went along even though she had no idea who they were... and loved both of them.  It was another year of not being able to see My Chem, and the Green Day concert got cancelled, but i have high hopes that 2013 will be the year for both of them.  

Travel wise, it was another busy year.  Highlights of the year were trips to be part of the wedding of people I love, my first ever trip to Canada, a return to England and shenanigans all over the place.   I hate that my friends live all over the world, but combining my love of travel with the chance to see them?  Made of awesome.   

Work?  Ups and downs, lots of them.  But I survived and I realized that it's ok not to have a consuming passion for my job.  It pays my bills and lets me do the things I want to do.  I am lucky in that regard and I am trying to keep that in mind when it drags me down.   

Mostly this has been a year where I realized that the most important parts of my life aren't whats, but rather whos.  I know, I know, I'm a bit slow on the uptake sometimes.   I'm getting there tho.  Just know that I love you, yes, you.  And you.  And you.  And I am thankful that you are in my life, in whatever way.   

I'm spending tonight with friends and (my second) family.  There will be ridiculously competitive games, drinks and food, probably Eddie Izzard playing in the background at some point and lots of laughter.  I don't have anyone to kiss at midnight because I don't have a boy, and all my girls are scattered to the winds and the people I have here don't understand that sometimes a kiss is just a kiss and doesn't have romantic connotations.  Sometimes it just means I love you and I am glad you are here with me in this moment.  But thats ok, because I will have people I love near.  I hope you have love and laughter tonight and all year long.  

(And if you are the kissing type and in the same boat, know I would give you a kiss at midnight if I could.)

I'm off now, so I'll end with my traditional wish (stolen, as ever, from Neil Gaiman):

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.
So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art,or love, or work or family or life
Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.

So I was chatting back and forth with  [livejournal.com profile] caarirose  earlier tonight in email like we do and I mentioned that i had had Bang the Doldrums by FOB stuck in my head all day and I quoted the line that I used as the title of this post to her.   She replied that even tho it wasn't one of my favorite songs that the lyrics were pretty me anyways.  

And that got me thinking.  I listen to music a lot.  Like, A LOT.  And I tend to make random associations in my head to it.  So when I hear "I know the world's a broken bone, melt your headaches, call it home" (P!atD) I tend to think of Cari because of her love for RyRo and our shared feels about that particular song and the shorthand that it has become for us, and when Heart is singing about "cast my spell of love on you, a woman from a child" I always think of  [livejournal.com profile] ravensword  because Magic Man always reminds me of JDM and where there is JDM, there is Amara.  Whenever I hear Mumford singing "my weakness I feel I must finally show" I am reminded of a million conversations with my beloved  [livejournal.com profile] canadiangoddess  that only make sense to us, and how in so many ways she truly does have part of my brain.  Likewise, the phrase "automatic joy" from AFP's Coin Operated Boy brings to mind a million different thoughts and memories of  [livejournal.com profile] havenward from enabling her writing to the simple glee of hanging out getting drunk together and being dorks and the way i love the words she writes.  Even people I don't know as well have lyrics that strike me, "Look alive sunshine" makes me think of  [livejournal.com profile] sophie_448  because of a pic of her cosplaying Killjoys and Mikey Way is about as close to sunshine as you can come in a human being, and Duran's Last Chance on the Stairway makes me think of  [livejournal.com profile] katzb101.  

Which is just my long winded way of asking... what lyrics remind you of me?  Doesn't matter if it is a song/artist I know or not, I'm curious to see what comes to mind.  :)  

(And if you want to know what lyrics remind me of you, just mention it in your comment and I'll see what pops into my head)
