Ooh, I had not seen this thread.

Happy NYE/NYD, Rossall (and others)!


How are you feeling?


Getting better from whatever illness I have had recently (probably Covid, though I haven't followed up with a test).

It's a slow road....

I've learned from the Christmas thread not to post so many songs and videos. If I didn't post so many videos, there are a few members who wouldn't have avoided that thread.

Be sure and eat your blackeyed peas and greens so you will have good luck and wealth in the new year.

In Italy you have good luck and wealth in the new year by dipping white grapes into your champagne, and eating them.

To be safe, do all these things! :)

I don't even live in London. I was high on an energy drink.

Before we move on from 2023 I want to thank once again those involved in making Wrong Planet a much better forum then the forum started out the year. At the beginning of the year there was a chronic cancer eating away at mental health of members and driving away members. That cancer like many cancers was hidden so many of us were blissfully unaware. We became aware only because members meticulously detailed what happened to them and posted about it a process that had to make the words traumatized and humiliated almost seem inadequate. It would have very understandable for those members to be hostile towards certain demographics and people who just did not get it. They were the opposite both empathetic and patient. Americans seem to want to fight about every little thing. The subject involved usually ends up in accusations and bitterness. The opposite occurred, members and moderators were almost universally supportive. Because of all of that we end 2023 with the cancer exercised.

There are lessons in that for 2024 and beyond. It is inevitable new challenges will occur that will make us conclude they are too much, Wrong Planet is finally done for. If we draw upon the empathy and persistence we found out we have in 2023 we will be all right.

This past year saw my 10th anniversary both of being diagnosed and joining wrong planet. Did I celebrate it by getting sloshed and making a lot of noise, nope. I started a thread about it and it turned out be very emotional and one the high moments of my life. Thanks to all of the members who participated in that thread, it would have been literally not the same without you.

Beyond wrong planet 2023 sucked big time form me. I was dealing with the aftermath of mothers slow painful late in 2022. The mideast war is affecting me very deeply. In addition I had to move out of decades long residence that has been anything but pleasant(reminder to myself, post an update to my moving thread). I have great trepidation about what 2024 will bring both in the mideast and with our Presidential election. I am comforted that WP will be here to lean on vent, etc.

That was probably at lot more intense then the OP intended and that most expected. So lets get the party started with Ch-Ch-Chaka Khan.
Happy New Year everybody.

I'm grateful for members like you who make WP so great. It's been a very challenging year for a variety of reasons, but I've received a lot of support and kindness on WP which is something I'll always be grateful for. :heart:

I'm extremely apprehensive about the coming year due to world events and personal issues that need resolving, but I'm glad and grateful that WP will be here.

Happy New Year Everyone!
