Happy New Year to one and all. May 2005 be better than 2004, no matter good 2004 was.
There have been some good things this year. There have also been some very good things this year, but they've been rather decisively outweighed by the over-arcing theme that's constantly run through the background of this year when it didn't violently thrust itself into the foreground, said over-arcing theme being a little sub-plot I like to think of as "craptacularly shitty".
2004 can choke on my fuck, and I'll be glad to see it gone.
