It’s hard to believe another year is coming to a close. Sure, it’s an arbitrary moment in time marked, not by any celestial meaning but, by some random result of politics and hubris. It doesn’t matter. How we got the moment is of little relevance. What’s important is that we use the time to be with family, share with friends, and drink heavily.
Just don’t drive if you do the latter.
All in all 2019 has been amazing year for me professionally. Since you follow along religiously I won’t bore you with that. If you want McSciFi stuff for the holidays just go to BillMcSciFi.com. and grab what you need.
On a personal note, I recently celebrated three years with the world’s most amazing girlfriend, Kim Lipe. She makes me happy in ways I didn’t know existed. More importantly, I seem to have been adopted by her family. This is odd for me since I don’t really have a family of my own. Being surrounded by hugs, kisses, and unconditional love, is far more alien to me than anything I’ve ever written.
But that’s where I’m at now, and I’m learning to like it.
And finding myself teaching Sunday school to wide eyed kids who think I’m worth knowing is also new. Those who know me well would not ascribe this to me, no matter how much liquor you plied them with. Yet, again, it’s a part of my life now and one I enjoy more than I ever thought possible.
Fun side note there; teaching the church organist about the joys of GWAR has to be one of the highlights of my life. Those kinds of experiences you can only live, not make up.
One of the perks of doing this writing thing, and showing up in places where people want to buy it, is that I’ve gotten to meet a wide variety of humans who help make my life better, and more interesting. I’ve shared drinks, laughs, and time with people I would otherwise never have met.
I’ll be doing more of that next year.
In conclusion, I want to thank you for your support and wish you and yours nothing but good health, success, and happiness.
I’ll be back to annoy you next year!
Until the, here’s the cutest thing you’ll ever see.
