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.

Now if your car ain't got it, go out and get it. We like the boom and don't you forget it. So turn down the treble and front your bass.

YAY thread!

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

Maybe someone should announce this puppy.

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

Yay thread!

Tell me the ghost in the machine is real

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.

'we all walk this earth feeling we are frauds. The trick is to be grateful and hope the caper doesn't end any time soon"

On the whole 2008 was nice to me, except for the lack of a job at the end of it -- but there's a lot of THAT going around, so I'm not taking it personally (yet).

"Look, son, if it's good enough for Shirley Bassey, it's good enough for you."

Theo, I enjoyed hearing your updates from the exciting world of computer generated imagery. You seemed to be enjoying yourself so much.

I wish everybody's offloading from employment was equally delightful and educational.

Thrive to spite them

2008 has been a year with good and bad.

I got -- a new job, a new apartment, a new SIL and a newphew.

I also got really into Second Life and met my sweetheart, SLNRLBF (Second Life Now Real Life Boyfriend). Who is awesome and I love, even though we live 1300 miles away.

Mom retired and is loving it.

But this year had a really bad thing, a really hard thing-- my wonderful sweet cousin, J, died in June of a heart attack. He was 34 and I still can't believe I have to say that.

So Christmas is a mix of excitement and sadness.
