As Is Traditional...

I am working on New Year's Eve, as I typically do. No biggie- I'm not a big New Year's Eve fan- there's usually a lot of dumbassery afoot, and most places overcharge anyway. It's a nice, quiet night here at work, and I'll get home before most of the madness on the roads starts. I'll be back tomorrow morning, but it will be a quiet day, much like Christmas was.

2011 was an okay year, but no great shakes. I tend to play a pessimist on the Internet (I'm much less so, by nature), and I really don't see 2012 being any better. There's going to be a lot of political idiocy, a lot of stupid, often racist, spam from former co-workers in the inbox, and a paucity of good news on the economic front. Personally, my 2012 will be okay, but I just don't see it being a good year for society. Damn, I hope I'm wrong, and that things pick up.

I won't argue with your predictions.

Happy New Years, nonetheless!

I'm hoping for a glorious 2012. :P

Actually, I'm just trying to pick out the songs I'm going to listen to as it comes to an end in December is it?? I'm planning on sitting on the front porch and watching as it all goes down.
So far I've got "It's The End Of The World As We Know It" by REM. :)

But seriously, all the best to you and yours in this newest of years. :)

I'm gonna have to do a "2012" post one of these days.

All the best in 2012!

I think that your 2012 post should include a play list. "Songs to ROCK the Apocalypse to.."

We need to get busy boy!
