End of Year Thingies Delayed Until Next Year
Ice King, Adventure Time
Ok, so I have two entries planned, but I regret to inform you that they will not happen before the end of the decade. I have been a little busy and too under the weather to really focus in on it and I feel bad about not having it ready, but I figure I'll only be disappointing about 2 people in the world, even if they are disappointed at all. I owuld pull an all nighter, but my eyes are fairly bloodshot and I won't be sleeping much on New Years night, so im just kind of stuck there. I'll also be spending New Years night with some friends if I feel like I can be up to it, so I won't be able to work on it at all.

So since I will probably be too busy to update this thing until late New Year's Day, have a happy and safe New Years celebration, have a happy New Year, and I hope you ring in the new decade with a bang of some kind.

Also, enjoy the Tournament of Roses parade tomorrow. I've never fully enjoyed it, but I won't be able to watch it, and I'll be missing it some. Isn't that just messed up?

Anyways, look for these new entries to pop up soon!

That was the decade that wasn't

I can remember exactly where I was when this awful decade came into being. Believe it or not, when I rang in the new year on January 1, 2000, I was not only stone-cold sober - I was at church! My then-girlfriend and I attended a special midnight mass at the local Catholic church to welcome in, not only a new decade, but a new century and a new millennium. I remember feeling filled with optimism. By entering this new era, I felt, we could wipe the slate clean. Maybe this would be a new age of peace, love, brother and sisterhood. EVERYBODY SING!

This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius!
Age of Aquarius!

How utterly naive on my part, huh? By year's end, all of that hope was out the window and into the toilet. In December of 2000, an ideologically perverted Supreme Court would assist in a stolen election by stopping the vote count in the state of Florida, installing a corrupt little frat boy with the I.Q. of a half-eaten box of Milk Duds as president of the United States. It was all downhill from that moment on. From the birth of "Reality Television" to the worst attack on American soil since the Civil War, it was quite a strange ten years to say the least. Thankfully this awful decade is a mere three days away from being forever consigned to history's scrap heap. Hallelujah.
