So it's 2005, and so far, it doesn't seem much different from 2004. Of course, it's been about 36 hours, so I don't really have much to go on, especially because I worked yesterday.

Actually, I've started taking time out of each day to just sit in my room surrounded by candles, listening to peaceful music and letting go of my stress. Thus far, it does seem to be working, as I feel better than I have in months. Last night I felt more relaxed than I have in a long time, and I even slept well, which is very rare for me. Of course, my iPod comes in very handy for this, as I can turn up the music and drown out everything else in the apartment without disturbing my roommates or my neighbors.

Today I have the day off and I get to sit around and watch an entire day of NFL games, with all 32 teams in action. I even considered moving my LCD TV into the living room to watch multiple games at once, but I'm just going to stick to the single TV and flip back and forth as needed. Oh, and I'm also going to make picks (home teams in CAPS):

•WASHINGTON over Minnesota
•TENNESSEE over Detroit
•NY Jets over ST. LOUIS
•Cincinnati over PHILADELPHIA
•NEW ENGLAND over San Francisco
•HOUSTON over Cleveland
•Green Bay over CHICAGO
•CAROLINA over New Orleans
•Pittsburgh over BUFFALO
•BALTIMORE over Miami
•Atlanta over SEATTLE
•ARIZONA over Tampa Bay
•SAN DIEGO over Kansas City
•Jacksonville over OAKLAND
•Indianapolis over DENVER
•Dallas over NY GIANTS

Next week the playoffs start, and I'll try to have picks every week, though with my track record of updating the site, I'm not guaranteeing anything.

Oh, an update on the webcam. We moved it on top of the TV so it's more central in the living room, plus nothing's blocking it. Also, our IP has managed to remain static since my last posting, so it's been up for about a week now. Maybe you tuned in for what were surely entertaining antics during the New Year's party.

Don't forget to vote in the Versus polls, because I do hope to have new ones up tomorrow, in addition to a new DGOW. I'm also going to update the file that lists all the Desktop Girls and how many photos I have of each. Within the next month, I'll also update the DGOW archives to include the newest photos I have of the past DGOW. Don't forget, if you have any requests, just e-mail me.
