Notable events this year:
Stood up by a “friend” on New Years Eve last year. So I’m just going to spend the night with the one person I can always count on. me.
Taught hundreds of Los Angeles teens about safe sex and the opportunity costs of teen pregnancy.
Saw some great movies.
Bought a slammin’ new Tempurpedic bed. Which I’m currently spending way too much time in, but then I won’t be able to sleep 12 hours a day when work starts. Although I seem to be mostly dreaming about work, so not sure how restful it really is.

Workin’ and makin’ money
Applied to Berkeley and UNC’s MBA programs. Now on pause until they notify me sometime in the next month…
Rode to Laguna Seca MotoGP and finally met Rossi. Met Melandri and a few other interesting people too. Was lucky enough to score a pit suite, which would have been a bargain at twice the price, in that heat wave.
Bought some slammin’ new shoes, had a fabulous purse made from the zebra skin I bought in Tanzania, which has garnered tremendous praise. And made out like a bandit at a few sample sales.
Dealt with some ancient familial angst regarding Christmas and with the help of some wonderful people in my life, managed to make it the best Christmas in ages.
Slept more this week than I have all month, it seems. And oooohhh, was it nice.
