This meme again? Well, sure. I’ve hit that middle portion of Holidailies where I have ideas but no energy to execute them. So here’s my 2013 in my first lines, minus book reviews and link reblogs.

January My second 5K race is tomorrow.

February The noise of traffic just outside our window was so much louder than usual, a steady, slick pulse over the rasp of the rain.

March Week two of the flu has been in turns frustrating and depressing.

April The second phase of adjustment to expat life has been harder.

May Normally I try to keep the rants to a minimum here, although arguably this is the one place on the Internet I can guiltlessly rant until my fingers run out of steam.

June Hello. I am still here. June is the kind of busy that makes my eyebrows hurt, but 90% of it is wonderful busy, like spending time with my mom.

July The summer has been so hectic that I forgot to fundraise (or even mention, really) this Sunday’s 10K race.

August Writers’ Bloc returns to the Edinburgh International Book Festival for a special event with John Lemke and Poppy Ackroyd.

September Fringe shows attended: 8.

October (Nothing, so you get a link that fascinated me today.)

November Um, yikes. And hello. September and October sped by because we moved house and I got a job.

December Now I’ve fooled around with MarsEdit for so long I don’t have much time to write before midnight.

Writing from: the uninspired lounge. Listening to: “7” by Prince.
