A lot of ones today. Including the tip I left our waitress at Denny's. $1. I thought it generous since I got a $4 meal.

Guess what I did to celebrate the new year? I built local front for the paper. ("Local front" meaning the front page of the local section of the newspaper. Just want to make sure I'm not losing any of you in my crazy journalistic jargon.) I got home early, though, so that's good. Early as in 11:15 p.m. As I predicted, I was the only one home, so I watched the last part of "Emma." As the credits rolled, the clock struck midnight and I thought to myself, "This is a WAY better way to celebrate than being at a loud party with a ton of people I don't know, eating semi-good food and realizing yet another new year's eve has passed with no one to kiss. Nope, I'd take watching "Emma" over that any day." Ha ha. So, in conclusion, it was a good night.

You're welcome.

My phone is dying. I've had it for 3 1/2 years. It's missing a couple buttons, it's scuffed and cracked, the battery holds a charge for about 18 hours and the Lymabean sticker on the back is peeling off. I suppose it's time for a change. I actually don't want to get a new phone (learning to use and getting used to a new one is a pain) but the vibrate doesn't work any more. I've had it on vibrate for over a year and a half. Even on the lowest sound setting, it still freaks me out, so I like to have it on vibrate. It makes just enough noise for me to know someone is calling. I've gotten so used to it being on vibrate, that I can pick up on the vibrations even if it's in my purse in another room. It's like I have dog hearing, or something. Seriously, I think you'd be amazed. But, all good things come to an end.

I bought the new Weepies album. So good. One of the song's lyrics I thought were very applicable to me. And just as a preface, I don't mean to keep writing things about being single and how hard it is, because in actuality, it's not hard. But it is what it is, and I am single, so I naturally gravitate and relate to songs and quotes and thoughts about singledom, in all it's glory.

Lovers walk two by two,
doing things lovers do
They're in love, where am I?
I see them on my way home,
how I hate to be alone
They're in love, where am I?

I guess I have to hope
that today the sun will shine
And maybe tomorrow you'll be mine

Until that day I will wait
and watch the lovers on the lake
They're in love, where am I?
I walk alone on lover's lane,
past the kisses in the rain
They're in love, where am I?

--"They're in Love, Where am I?" by The Weepies

Hey, happy new year! I'm gonna venture a guess that 2011 is a prime number (I wouldn't doubt I am wrong, but for the sake of what I'm about to write, just pretend I'm right.) I think, since it's a prime year and I'm a prime age (23) this'll be a prime time of life. Yes?
