Angel: I appreciate you guys looking out for Connor all summer. It's just—he's confused. He needs time. That's all. Fred: Right. Time, and some corporal punishment with a large heavy mallet. Not that I'm bitter.

Goodbye and Good Riddance 2008: "...and the horse you rode in on."  

Every year we watch the Charlie Brown special, do the Snoopy dance, wish everybody a Merry Christmukkah, and thank our Secret Santas in the good riddance thread. Which is this one, in case you were wondering. Oh, and 2008? Don't think we've forgotten about you.

Well, 2008 is closing out with me fucking up both my feet (beyond their normal level of recurrent fuck-up-ed-ness). My usual problem ankle is probably just suffering from a bad turn, but my other foot I'm beginning to worry is broken (when I originally thought I'd just twisted my ankle). So 2008 can kiss my ass.

2020: We will speak of it no longer. Ptui!

Maybe someone should announce this puppy.

ETA: What the heck, I'll do it.

swears like a comma

I'll write up a post later summarizing 2008, and I'm sure I will find the year a wash, on balance. However, right now? I'd like to kick 2008 in the nads. Repeatedly.

So. Very. Over. 2008.

And whoever anonymously sent me a Star Trek Pez collector's set, thank you. You are awesome, and you made my day when it showed up.

I know I said thanks in Beep Me, but I wanted to say it again here. It is still making me smile.

You should know I'm a big deal in the Resistance.

Goodbye to the crappy commute I endured through July.

Goodbye to not dating. (cross yer fingers)

Goodbye to my crazy sister. I hope we can meet on the road to sanity in 2009.

Hey. New board.

Oh wow. It's been a year for sure. I'm going to have to marinate on this for a while. I think it's been a good year, but it's had its moments.
