- Spent 3 days with Rachie and watched “Daybreakers”
- Played 4 player Mario on the Wii for the first time

Hey!   I’m finally back from whatever it is I’ve been doing over the last month!

Let’s do a recap.   It entailed…

- New Years!
- Christmas!
- Many gigs!
- A tonne of boyinaband stuff!
- Considerable Rachie time!
- Hanging out with many friends!
- Some things that don’t warrant exclamation marks!
- Resolutions

I couldn’t possibly remember everything, but I’ll see if I can recall some of the more interesting bits…

New Years P. A. R. T. Y.

Rachie’s friend invited both her and me to a party on new years.   Now, in my experience, new years involves sitting at home watching a Bill Bailey DVD (I actually got another one this year, watched it on Christmas though.) – this year was slightly different.
