I’ve never really enjoyed New Year’s Eve parties, I’m not sure why. So last night, I was very happy to enjoy a quiet celebration at home, with a delicious meal cooked by my husband (Menu: Bacon wrapped asparagus, sweet potato tempura, and sliced chicken thighs, celery, carrot, and green beans cooked in soy sauce and mirin served over somen noodles in a chicken stock broth with spinach, topped with sliced green onion) and a little anime. Here’s hoping we’ve started the new year off right!
2008 was an amazing year for me here at There It Is, Plain As Daylight. I met a lot of incredible people, read a lot of great manga, and got invited to join the reviewing staff over at Manga Recon! My bookshelves are overflowing, and my blogroll has exploded to the point where I’ve had to turn to Google Reader to keep up. I hope to spend 2009 enjoying all of your blogs, attending more cons, reading more manga than ever, improving my writing, and plugging slowly away at my own comic!
One announcement I’d like to make for the new year, is that I recently invited my good friend Deanna Gauthier to come on board as a regular guest blogger! Deanna shares with me a deep love and enthusiasm for manga, and I’m thrilled that she has agreed to talk about it here! Please join me in welcoming her to my little blog!
Thank you all for being a part of my life in 2008! Here’s to a great 2009 for all of us!
