is a long, sordid post about the propensity of friends/ex-friends (who wouldn’t know each other if it weren’t for you), galvanized in their cumulative hatred for and jealousy of you, give shout-outs to each other and switch sides via Two-Facedbook. But I won’t write about that, because my year of Losing Friends and Alienating People is nearly over; 2009 and the haters can kiss my you-know-what. If there is one thing I learned in 2009, it’s that you can only rely on yourself. And that Facebook is the new medium/equivalent of the high school clique. I didn’t partake then, and after a two month hiatus followed by a few days back on, I am positive it adds zero to my life.
But I said I’m not going to write about it because I’m done with it. So instead, let’s keep this really superficial and talk about the good stuff: that I managed (going into the holidays) to get skinnier than I’ve been in almost two years; that I love the thigh-high boot trend; that I have a couple of real, true friends who will always be there for me, even when my logic seems mad to them; that I have been blessed with the greatest mom in the world. And again, that 2009 is a few days from being history, and I’ll be in Sydney watching the New Year’s Eve fireworks live that the rest of the world only sees on TV.
