Goodbye 2008.

January 1, 2009 at 7:42 am 1 comment

Goodbye 2008, you weren’t a very friendly year to most of us. On the national scale you gave us foreclosures, layoffs, company bankruptcies, political chaos, the near collapse of both the stock market and the auto industry and the deaths of two celebrities I really enjoyed — Heath Ledger and George Carlin. You brought us the “rebirth” of Britney Spears and several ridiculously named celebrity children (Bronx Mowgli, anyone?). You were the year where people, other than Alaskans, had to listen to Sarah Palin speak. You gave us a deadly earthquake in China and tornadoes in the southern United States. You did, however, bring us Barack Obama and for that I can forgive SOME of your transgressions (perhaps I can turn a blind eye to the Britney and poorly named celebrity baby stories). However, you really seemed to have a bad attitude, and I for one am not too sorry to see you go. Now if 2009 would just learn from your mistakes and behave better. Here’s hoping.

To anyone who reads my blog — thank you. I would write this drivel anyways but it is nice to know that someone occasionally actually reads it. Happy New Year to you and may 2009 bring you much health, happiness and prosperity.
