2009 looms, less than two hours away. And I thought I'd take this opportunity to express my thanks and tell you my hopes for the future.
First, I'm thankful for Thers, the other half of my brain, who defines, more than anyone else, my day-to-day experience.
An actual conversation, more or less:
Thers: There is a difference between you and I
Me: What is that?
Thers: You like to do stuff. I do not.
Thers: No, seriously You see a vacation, you say: project! You see a tax refund, you say: kitchen. I see a vacation, I say: sleep! I see a tax refund, I say: party!
Me: Well, I guess that's accurate.
Seriously, dood. You rock.
Thanks too to our cobloggers: Thers's jebby co-survivor VA; the wiseman/wiseass of the midwest Rip; the woman with the shit on the Left Coast, flory; and my lifelong friend and confrere Jake T. Snake (who, I confess at this juncture, is my cousin).
Thanks to the monsters of Liberal Mountain, only shards of whose adventures make it to your fine eyes.
I hope our new president listens to Paul Krugman.
I hope our new president lives up to the things people swore to me about him.
I hope we can restore the economy and the climate at the same time.
What are you thankful for? What do you hope for? Have a wonderful New Year!
UPDATE FROM THERS.
BUGS!I am also a "nerf-herder."
