Anyone who follows me on Facebook already knows this, but I decided to celebrate New Year's as combination "Thank god 2011 is over"/Countdown to the Zombie Apocalypse.  And, honestly, it's only a day, but my 2011 had sucked so hard that I really feel like it's permission to let go of all the pain and sad.

I did a HUGE amount of reading, but I'm just now starting to enjoy it again.
