New Year's Rocket Ship -- Hop On!
« on: December 31, 2017, 08:06:34 PM »


Four years ago I was facing my first new year without him and was two months into membership in this horrible club.

I've never posted on this forum, but the predecessor to this board, the ywbb, saved my life on more than one occasion.  That New Year's was one.

Another lovely wid started a cardboard rocket ship thread, and off we went, visiting lots of places, eating lots of yummy things, playing lots of music, drinking lots of alcohol, and wearing ridiculous outfits, such as the tin foil cocktail dress.  It somehow made it all more bearable, and made me feel not as alone.

I thought about that last night, and realized...

NOW THE ROCKET MUST FLY AGAIN!  HOP ON!  WHERE TO FIRST?

Ah, Babymoose!  I miss you!

I tossed out my tin foil hat that I was given 8 years ago. Maybe I should make a new one!

Love to you!

Got any food, beverage, or music requests?

(And M, I hope the same for you!)

Okay, I am breaking out the bean dip and popping open a cold one.

I'll be here if you need me, kickin' back with the dog and the cat and makin' more stuff out of tin foil.

Hellooooooo!

It's been ages since I've been here, except for the other night when I needed it, then read what I'd written and felt bad...I should be better by now!!  But it's about to turn 2018 and all of this started November 2008 and it seems like another turn around the sun, somehow.  Anyway, after feeling guilty for posting not at my best, I deleted my account.  Then came here and saw this post and it reminded me of bigger and better things than what I'm feeling at the moment;  I remember that night! And the New Years preceding it.  My little guy had a cardboard rocket ship in the living room one particularly difficult night and it sparked an idea...

So, nine years later, and heading into the first new decade since everything, which is apparently a big milestone, somehow, I would most humbly (and bumbly...thanks typo) ask that you pick me up on Good Ol' Vancouver Island, BC.   I don't have anything made of tinfoil, but I know my way around a roll of duct tape and can probably figure out something...

Thanks Admin, for adding me so quickly.  Sometimes, you just need to be home for the holidays.
