Never mind the bollocks, here’s some reality

Well, hey there, y’all.

Finally, i can say “never mind the bollocks” and mean it.

Blogger have solved their itinerant problems with commenting. I can comment! You can see my gloriously sexy, ArtfulDodger-designed icon again, displayed o’er there on the right. Joy!

And they have a new tag label box. Stylish! No more fumbling around with the HTML required for technorati tags. Happy, happy, joy, joy.

So today, i am home, working (paid work), and working (housework) on preparing dinner for a whole bunch of people for tomorrow night. Yes, once again, Jewish New Year has rolled around and it’s chopped liver time! I make a wicked chopped liver — so yummy it borders on the foie gras, in my not-so-humble opinion. (Pursuit, get your shiny heinie over here and give it the seal of epicurean excellence. I trust no other as i trust you, in these matters.)

But for now, I’m writing you all… because I’m all about the procrastination. And it makes you think, a landmark of this nature. If i had known now what i didn’t know a year ago… blah, blah, blah.

No, seriously:

I didn’t know last year how many friends i had. It adds up, you know. I am a very fortunate Minx.

I didn’t know last year that i could feel what i felt during this year.

I wasn’t cognisant of how mistaken i had been, and what a narrow and lucky escape I’d had.

I wasn’t aware how treacherous some people can be, nor how evil.

I wasn’t aware of how strong the ties that bind a true friendship really are. Nor that i was blessed enough to have such good friends in my life. You know who you are — all of you.

I learned how to enjoy my children in the last year, more than ever. I would post a picture, so you can see how adorably cute they are (cough cough when they’re asleep cough cough), but you know, I respect their privacy and everything…. so it aint gonna happen.

I predict that, for me at least, the coming year will be full of challenges and changes, rocky roads, bends in the road, and with any luck, light at the end of the tunnel. Check back this time next year, let’s see where we are.

But i must reassure you of one thing: I am going nowhere. I’m still here. I’m not scared. I am ready to face whatever life throws at me, and smack it the hell back.

With attitude.

    So glad blogger got all that sorted out and hopefully I can comment again! Sheesh! Fingers crossed…

    Happy New Year you! And many more.

    This time last year I had no idea a Minx existed in the world and that makes me sad, but glad to know I do now and that makes me all so glad.

  2. What a difference a year makes, and the best year on record – if you ask me.

  3. L’shana Tovah, sweetie!

  9. Darling Minx,

    A Happy and Prosperous New Year to you and yours. May we never see another summer like the one that just passed for both of us. I love you lots and the baby minxies too.

  10. Art: And this time last year i didn’t know that the ArtfulDodger existed outside the pages of Dickens… How ghappy I am that now i do. Love to you and Lady L.

    Holiday: Oh you bet you sweet ass it does. Immeasurably so.

    Al: Right abck atcha, my fellow MOT. And well over the fast, if you fast that is.

    Miz B: Yes. The problems with Blogger are well-known and well documented, and much profanity has been hurled in Blogger’s direction from your Minx as a direct result. But thank you for your perseverence, sweetheart. Always a delight to hear from you, anyway.

    Thanks for your wonderful good wishes, and besos right back to you — in all the fun places!

    Scarlet: To you too, honey (and apple). Shana tova!

    Desire X: Why, of course you can. Purrrrrrrrrrr. As long as HIM joins in. Rawr.

    gyla: Yay indeed, Gyla. Wish i could access your profile, but Blogger says it doesn’t exist. (See above reply to Miz Bohemia. Ahem.)

    Roxi: Oh, i lurves me a happy dance. You should see the official Minxy happy dance. It’s a sight people pay money to observe.

    Amal: Amen, my darling. All best wishes, health and happiness to you and yours. Love you.

  11. Hello Minx, Blogger doesn’t think I exist? I do, but I exist more at tblog. http://ggirl.tblog.com They’re really duplicate sites, but the Blogger site doesn’t include all of the tblog posts. I hope you’re having a great day!

  12. Chicago has a ban on foie gras.

    Many are very upset about this.

    You should send your recipe over this way to some of the top chefs, so they might satisfy their angry foie gras-less clientele.

    I’m not a liver fan, myself. But, I am an adventurous eater and would try your creation anytime.

    As long as some Minx was served up for dessert, but of course.
