And handed to us on a silver platter the racist, sexist, homophobic piece of shit that is Donald Drumpf...
Go fuck yourself, 2016!
The Mistress hopes to return in 2017 with an improved attitude. Call it a New Year's resolution, if you wish. (Good luck with that, I hear you say.)
Until that time, let's remember that there are still pleasures to be found, as the late kabuki zero reminded us six years ago in his 2010 wrap-up...
"This year came and went so badly, it was hard to find pleasure. but here are some things i favored:
cooking outdoors. silk pajamas. godiva dark chocolate. pot roast w/ winter vegetables. hot air balloons (viewed from the ground. kabuki gets vertigo BIG TIME) watching jewelry auction television. hot bubble baths with a good comic book. listening to my parrot, who mostly speaks when i am in another room. old friends. finding out an old flame is still alive - and looking like hell. really nice bed linens. and getting my very own blog, happy one year anniversary to the man who told the world."
