So, right about now, if my calculations are correct, the international date-line is experiencing 188.8.131.52 for the first time. That is, the new day, the first day of the new year, year one, is just beginning (ie: it is just after midnight) at the time of this post. (Sort of; I’m writing it earlier and changing the timestamp so I can go to bed – though with my luck and brain I’ll likely stay awake to see if the world ends at 4AM)
So, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Which reminds me; what are YOU doing tonight to celebrate New Year’s Eve? I don’t know what I’m doing, but I hope it doesn’t suck. Maybe I’ll steal the car during the day, scoot down to Payson to see The Passion of the Christ, buy some ice cream and cheap booze from the WalMart, and come home to celebrate in style. Well, better than normal, anyway.
Do you have any New Year’s Resolutions for Year One?
I’ve just started using my BowFlex again, so maybe I’ll resolve (or did I already do that?) to stick to my workout schedule for the entire year. Or maybe I should resolve to seek out an audience who not only gives feedback (ie: why don’t you people comment on my posts, even when I ask direct questions? There are literally thousands of you; can’t you think of anything to say?), but also spends money. Or to quit smoking. That’s always an easy resolution for me, having never smoked.
Anyway, I hope you all have a happy and fun New Year’s Eve tonight, and a successful and brilliant Year One.
Happy New Year.
