So, in retrospect

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.


Hungry...

You think watching 'Bank Job' with parents is uncomfortable?

Try 'Summer of Sam'; I was almost permanently purple in the face.

@mom
What? How? It was an okay year...
They're all just goths. Pretty soon they'll start dressing like raccoons and writing goth poetry.

@ls
Really? I'll keep that in mind...
Have a great year!

@Queen
Well yeah, my mom bringing me some coffee while some naked women with some very 70's style 'undergrowth' were prancing about the screen was strange, to say the least.
Though now that I reading that, that one DOES look worse...

Happy New Year!
