  • I did not go snowboardding in Tahoe.
  • I did not go diving at all, in fact.
  • I did not see snow.

  • I did not play Guitar Hero.
  • I did not play The Cube.

Even though this is a list of "did nots", it seems like there are some great positive things in the list that override the negatives... i.e., not doing office-related work, not feeling bored or any other negative feelings.

Happy New Year!
