Twice Shy [Dec. 31st, 2016|06:00 pm]
So The Year That Bit Big is about to Bite the Big One. The only way it will ever be missed is if one that's worse comes along. While I hope I never miss 2016, I'm pessimistic enough to think that I might, but if I do I hope it isn't going to be very soon. Like tomorrow, for example. Every year owes us at least one really good day, and it would be nice if 2017 would start out with one of those. Then I could forget for a while what the rest of it is likely to bring.

Tonight is going to bring cold, and tomorrow is supposed to bring rain, but having been through several years of drought I don't mind the rain. I have nowhere to go anyway. Not even Pasadena would mind rain tomorrow, as when New Year's Day falls on a Sunday the parade and game are held on Monday. I wouldn't mind being in Pasadena myself, but that's not going to happen. What is likely to happen is that I'll spend the day with Internets and television— provided neither of them, nor the power, goes out.

Tonight I'm going to eat something and then start drinking something, but not too early, as I don't want to sleep through the midnight noise. I always enjoy the midnight noise, even though I no longer participate in it. I'm hoping that tonight it will remind me of years that were not 2016.

Happy New Year.

It really was a stinker of a year, wasn't it? Those in memoriam-type retrospectives all made me so sad, and we aren't even talking about politics yet (and won't right now, out of consideration for the occasion). I hope you do have a good day tomorrow, and then it'd be nice if we were all amazed by the beauty of 2017. I can dream, yes? ;)

I'd be in favor of reversing time and instead of going forward into 2017 just go through 2016 backward so it will all be undone. Where is Superman when you need him?

Wouldn't that be great?! I would vote for the world to go back to maybe 1975 and set a better course for the future!
