Auld Langs Monkey It's already 2005 for half of the world, and we're feeling the love here in Europe. If I may be so bold as to start off the New Year with a link-free Post of good wishes: Have a good one, everyone.
  • Good-bye and good-riddance 2004! May monkeys everywhere have peace and good fortune in 2005.
  • Gott nytt år everybody! Break out the cockpunch and the party hats! Thank you for fun times in 2004, looking forward to many more in 2005. Best new year's wishes to monkeys everywhere.
  • The future isn't what is used to be.
  • Goodnight.
  • Happy new year. I'm going to spend this one at home sober for the first time in a coon's age. I had enough partying with my fellow LA monkeys (two meetups in a week!) to last me for a while. Best wishes for you all in 2005!
  • I still have six more hours of 2004. I wish I was in 2005. /sulk
  • Koko You are user 666. Go out and raise some hell dammit.
  • I also will be so glad to start a new year. May we all prosper and achieve in our personal domains of happiness. I shall send a big hug and kiss to everyone, in about five hours. /yawn. ...if I'm still awake.
  • Peace, strength, righteousness & largesse to everyone. Except assholes. May assholes be sucked into a shitstorm of crap this year, and all years to come. BLAARGH. And thankyou, monkeys, for making my online troupe complete. Now, let's whoop.
  • The year is 14 hours old, and I'm sleepy. Happy New Year!!
  • Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And auld lang syne? For auld lang syne, my dear, For auld lang syne, We'll tak a cup of kindness cockpunch yet, For auld lang syne. Felicitations and joy to youse all, on this noble dawning of another bloody year. Love, yours drinking something called "Pink Pink Fizz" and talking about sex, flashb'y
  • You are user 666. Go out and raise some hell dammit. I've been annoying the cat, does that count?
  • I wish all at Monkeyfilter a healthy, happy and prosperous 2005!!! My 2005 doesn't come for another 5.5 hours, but I'll probably be in bed by then. I'm not big on New Year celebrations, but I hope whoever is has a wild (and safe) time! Remember; DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE!!!!!!!!!
  • As much as 2004 sucked (interestingly, I've met a lot of people who have held the same opinion), I have a good feeling about 2005. Happy New Year, peeps.
  • I'm dubious as to how well 2005 will be as I am spending my NYE contemplating leaving my SO. If I stay, it'll likely suck, if I leave, there is a chance it could go a little better. Hmm....decisions, decisions.
  • Good luck with whatever decision you make, Darshon. Scary.
  • whoot!! whoot!! We've got 2 1/2 more hours to go. I might make it, but with a pain killer and a muscle relaxant in me, it's doubtful. Can't do booze, but the drugs are a bit of a celebration. It only hurts when I laugh. If I do make it to midnight, I'll sweep the old year out the door and usher the new one in, then drop into bed. Hopefully, the idiots shooting off their shotguns and pistols will point them UP this year. (Living in the Wild West can be interesting at times) Best of all to the Monkey chums. Hope your 2005 is a wowzer. (Darshon, a friend of mine has been contemplating leaving for several years now and been agonizing over it. She went to tell her husband they needed milk, and what came out was, "I want a divorce." She said she was almost in shock, but instantly felt relief that it was in the open and done.)
  • Darshon, I'm assuming that your SO doesn't read MoFi. (I empathize; 2004 sucked for me for very similar reasons. Good luck... and once I get to my laptop, you'll be getting a very special email on behalf of the LA meetup monkeys)
  • 1 hour to go here. Happy New Year, everyone! Bananas on the house! ((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((
  • I'm assuming that your SO doesn't read MoFi. No. But my feelings are out in the open as it is. You just can't hide this sort of stuff. The agonizing part is having two small children and being of the mind that there would be no circumstances by which divorce would be the outcome. Reality sets in and I realize that 1) I always pick the ones that won't work out (third marriage for me--only have children with this one, though), 2) I stupidly turned a blind eye to things I shouldn't have in the spirit of love, compassion, understanding and open-mindedness, 3) If I stay, the world remains relatively closed to me (I know, as far as I let it), if I go I have tremendous freedom to live a far more enriched life. Nothing about this is good.... /sorry for the ranting derail, I don't mean to draw attention to myself, however, Mofi has become a bit of a haven of sorts, plus you guys are ridiculously understanding and compassionate. Thank you for the kinds words. I'll end up okay, either way.
  • Darshon: Two Smalls changes things. THEIR lives come first. Stay or go, you'd best do what's in their best interests within your decision. Tremendous freedom went out the window when you created hostages to fortune. Enrichment is well and good, but find your enrichment with them in mind as well. They are the future. /GramMa
  • Ach, wot can be the matter with me? I only swallowed one small whisky. then after I swallowed some more I founf I couldn't rise from the floor! A Happy New Year to all of us! May our whisky never swallow us, and we never feel a smidge the worse so good times only follow us!
  • Ach, and the devil damn it! My first typo of 2005! If only I could believe 'twere m' last! *flings Scotch bonnet into the air* *remembers his Precious flask is in there, and nealry brains self trying to catch it safely*
  • 'Twas a high old if not a Highland fling. *capers madly, then reels*
  • I wish all my Monkey friends the best of everything for the new year. I'm confident that those of you who are going through difficult changes will find your way. And, bees, can I have this dance?
  • Heppy heppy nu yar.
  • Don't worry, GramMa, those two precious little ones are in good hands, either way. Believe me, they are foremost in my thoughts at all times. They are my heart outside of my body.
  • happy new years all you knuckleheaded monkeys! GIVE ME A KISS!!
  • I stupidly turned a blind eye to things I shouldn't have in the spirit of love, compassion, understanding and open-mindedness Hm, sounds like what I did ... ah well, we make our beds, we lie in 'em. Hope everything turns out ok.
  • Kisses dirtdirt. Happy New Year all you monkeys.
  • 2:00am pissed as a newt. big sloppy kiss to all you hairy bastids. *staggers off to bed* *whee!* fuck! ha! hfhfhfdfewrr437cbcb
  • an I still thinks GramMa has nice fetlocks.
  • Happy New Year, everybody, good luck and hugs all round (with a special squeeze for Darshon).
  • Happy New Year, all!
  • Felíz Año Nuevo! May 2005 bring peace and good times to everyone. Hugs, kisses and nanners for my Monkey friends!
  • Happy New Year to all Monkeys! I look forward to posting this year and meeting some WONDERFUL Monkeys! What are some of the rules I should be on the lookout for? Thanks a bunch!
  • I stupidly turned a blind eye to things I shouldn't have in the spirit of love, compassion, understanding and open-mindedness Hell, I did the same thing for twenty years out of pride and ego. I can justifiably blame my own stupidity. But please no remorse for what is done from the heart. That last year sucked and I agree that so many say similarly. I firmly believe this will be a year that glows. *pulls shoulders back and chin up*
  • 2004: Could have been better, could have been worse. That's the way years and worlds go. My plan is to quit smoking and lose the lingering limp I have from a broken leg the summer before last. Also, Darshon, sorry to hear of your troubles. I'll have plenty of drama of my own with exes in 2005. I thought "ex" meant gone, but I was wrong. But, a great new year to everyone! Blessings and goodwill to you all!
  • Happy new years and best wishes for 2005...
  • Plus, dxlifer, you sound morose. Hope all is well in the short-term. (The long-term is a fuzzy conglomerate that tends to shake itself out.)
  • Oh, sorry. It just occured to me that "The Lingering Limp" would make a great title to a Sherlock Holmes story.
  • ... Or maybe "The Simpering Simp?" Just a thought, to anyone who is still here.
  • Just got back home from a very drunken night out. I was a piss-tank, and quite likely embarrassed myself...but the good news is that I don't remember much of it, so no harm & no foul. All the best in 2005 to all you monkeys, especially those who've had a shitty 2004. And Darshon, I understand what you're feeling, having gone through the same thing recently. All you need to do is love your kids and love yourself, and all will be OK.
