Began my affair
with Ramón Alejandro
Even wrote a song


Got a new haircut
that made me Ann Wilson’s twin
Oooh, Barracuda

Started to notice
Wito’s wicked memory
at 18 months old


Traveled to Boston
to visit my darling niece
made observations


Felt like a celeb
Featured in The New York Times
Still can’t believe it


Nightline followed soon
Also a trip to New York
Filmed on a talk show

the segment didn’t make it
still worth it, these girls


Hair Thursday website
was born, also the Kick Ass
Workout Plan, big FAIL


Blogher in San Fran
Cut a rug or two, viva
la Sprinkler and such

Also learned how to
use a Neti Pot, which I
now can’t live without


Big Wito turned two
Long road trip to Sun Valley
Beautiful up there


Took trip to Denver
Began my obsession with
Twilight, Edward lust


Flashed guitar teacher
Wito dabbled in drama
Still need hot toddy


Celebrated my
birthday, anniversary
new President, YAY

Lots of fun crushes
Even some mild stalking plans
Cali Thanksgiving


Oklahoma bound
ten days with my family
I love them so much

Kept resolution
to play Ramón at year’s end
Proud I haven’t quit

Haiku-ed my brains out
I think I will miss it though
Happy New Year, all!

    Thanks to you, my skills
    at haiku are much better.
    Where will it get me?

    I met you this year
    Which, very awesome indeed.
    Jealous of your hair.

    Happy New Year!

    Sounds like a year
    that was worth every minute
    even the fail ones.

    What a great recap! Thanks for including the Dancing Blogher post. That still is my all-time favorite, I think. Happy New Year to the Whoorls!

    Such a great recap
    but you forgot to mention
    Lefty O’Douls, heh.

    That place: a little
    too debutante for my taste.
    Happy! New Year, babe.

    It’s amazing how much information you can pack in a tiny haiko. I don’t know why I get attitude when I see them on the page, though. That is a brilliant way to do a year in review. Happy New Year!

    Did I somehow miss the talk show? Did that air? HUH? I am lost!
