All Is Quiet On New Year’s Day

Posted by rich on January 1st, 2008

Hanging out at the house, with the kids watching the original Superman (Rye likes it when Krypton explodes) and watching big rain drops attack my deck. Not exactly an exciting day, although I might watch the Rose Bowl later (we’ve got to have some traditions darnit).

I really liked 2007. We got Daisuke-mania, a World Series title, 16-0, Big 3 v2.0, and lots of Britney Spears bashing, not to mention Miss Teen USA’s geography speech. Led Zeppelin came back, and so did the Smashing Pumpkins. Personally I embraced the iPod and Blackberry revolutions and actually lost more weight. Yeah, 2007 wasn’t so bad.

What can we expect in 2008? Well, here’s some stuff that should be fun. Bill Clinton doing his best to help Hillary get into the White House just so he can run amuck as First Man; Obama trying to become president despite his last name; Harold and Kumar escape Guantanomo Bay; The Dark Knight; China totally screwing up the Olympics; Hank Steinbrenner becoming a bigger villain than his dad; A-Rod doing more stupid things; Roger Clemens “clearing” his legacy; a 12-year old being sued for millions by the RIAA; hopefully rock music making a huge comeback; the Pats finishing off 19-0.

That’s off the top of my head. I think 2008 will be okay. Now go break some resolutions.
