Happy New Year!

No, I have not lost it. I am very aware that it's January 31st and not December 31st. But we said that 2009 was going to be a great year. In other words, it was going to be very different than the black plague that was 2008. And as Beerman put it yesterday in an email that had an obituary for a very dear colleague of his attached, "2009 is not impressing me at all". So we're starting it all over and thinking of January as a 2008 hangover. After all, 2008 really, really, really, really sucked, so it would make sense that after all that partying in the shit, it would take a bit for the stink to wear off. So now it really begins. And we're not kidding. We're busting out the champagne and fondue, planning the countdown, going to watch a marathon of movies, and let C-man stay up too late (well, maybe... he's got a bad cold, so he might have to keep to his bedtime). But we're turning this sucker around. Let the festivities begin!
