Chins up, Sturdy Golden Bears. The main page threads about the Holiday Bowl are already showing that gallows humor for which you are all noted, along with your capacity to shrug off disappointment with a list of "bah, you thought that was bad, what about [insert example of sporting debacle / disappointment here]?"
But still, given that it's always fun to look forward to the future, and with the approach of the new year we have a social construct for thinking that things might be different after an abritrary debate, what are you looking forward to in the new year?
- the remaining if slight hope that I might get a proper vacation next year, as opposed to spending days off at home getting into trouble for being idle
- starting the search for a new job
- the "hookers and blow" stretch of the summer when the wife and kids are out of town, even though it always turns into the "sweltering and moping" phase in which I try to find restaurants open after 10 pm
- mastering the Korg iMS-20 app I bought last night, so that I can finally fulfill my DJ Trocan destiny
