2009!

Forget an end-of-year post for 2008.  It was a year; it had high and low points.  Let's talk about THIS year, 2009!  

I wasn't particularly excited last night when it rolled in, but I will say that instead of having a huge shindig, V. and I were hanging out with a good group of folks that make us smile.  I hope that's an indicator of the year we have ahead of us all: perhaps nothing truly spectacular, but full of good, interesting times enjoyed with others.

There will be at least two spectacular things that happen in the coming months:
  1. Barack Obama will be sworn in as President of the United States of America.
  2. The detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba will be permanently closed.
Those are some pretty excellent coming events, no?  I see good things in our future, folks.  I'm not bursting at the seams with positive energy and excitement, but I'm optimistic.  Let's not worry about the fanfare right now; let's just make some good happen.

PS: OH YEAH, I'm also gonna get the goddamned Chinese food that I was craving so hard last night.  If that's not a great way to start things off, I don't know what is.
