Last year was awesome. It was the last year of school, my first job, and a few months of doing absolutely nothing all rolled into one orbital cycle. It had it’s fair share of crap, but that’s unavoidable. Although I’m a bit… disappointed, by the farewell 2008 was given. Not even a firecracker.
This year actually felt different. It was freezing in the morning, so cold my ni-.. oh, BE’s already done that one. So cold a liquid nitrogen bath would have been warm? Nah… Very cold anyway. Since I had to come to work today, I promptly dressed and had breakfast while playing the last bit of Mass Effect. So my first act of the year was to finish that brilliant game. I know, my geekitude can’t be shrugged off too easily. I try. But seriously, the feeling that you’ve saved the galaxy, and the feeling of “Ha! Take THAT, reapers!!” at the beginning of the year is priceless.
Also, do NOT try to watch “The Bank Job” when your parents are around. Uncomfortable is not the word.
